Paris Saint-Germain Transfers: 3 players who could leave PSG

Ligue 1 cancelled the current season because of the coronavirus pandemic. As a consequence, Paris Saint-Germain were crowned champions, given they had a 12-point lead at the top. 

Now that the domestic season is already over, and with no signs of the Champions League until August at least, PSG may look to begin their preparations for the next season.

Coach Thomas Tuchel would be eager to reflect back on the team’s performances this season, and how they can get better ahead of the next one. 

In the current climate, the PSG won’t be making any high profile signings, but there could be a couple of high profile exits. Players like Edinson Cavani and Thiago Silva are out of contract in June, which means their future hangs in the balance. 

Having said that, here are the top 3 players who are most likely to leave Paris Saint-Germain:

#3 Julian Draxler

After shining in the Bundesliga with Schalke and Wolfsburg, Julian Draxler moved to Ligue 1 in 2017 with the reputation of a player who was adept at playing on either flank and was comfortable with both feet. 

Three years on, the German finds himself warming the bench at Paris Saint-Germain, having fallen down the pecking order at the Parc des Princes. Still only 26, Draxler has a lot to offer, which is why he’s eager for a move to pastures anew. 

As per recent reports, Arsenal are actively monitoring the situation surrounding Draxler, whose contract expires in the summer of 2021.

Paris Saint-Germain are also keen to offload him soon so that they can recoup a major chunk of what they paid to sign the midfielder, who has made just 19 appearances across all competitions this season.  

Draxler would be a good value for money signing as he’s versatile and two-footed, which makes him an attractive prospect for potential buyers. 

#2 Thomas Meunier

Various clubs such as Tottenham Hotspur, Arsenal and Borussia Dortmund have been mooted to be in the running for Thomas Meunier’s signing, as he will be available for zilch in the summer, given Paris Saint-Germain have decided not to renew his contract. 

The Belgian moved to France in 2016 after impressing in his five-year stint with Club Brugge. Since then, he’s won eight-trophies at the Parc des Princes. 

This season, Meunier has made 27 appearances for Paris Saint-Germain across all competitions, scoring one goal and providing two assists as a right-back.

He’s reliable defensively and can be an asset going forward. Given the crunch situation of football clubs, teams would be looking for free agent players, and they don’t come any better than Meunier. 

The 28-year-old is full of running, he can bombard crosses in the box all day long, and the fact that he’s a free agent means there would be no shortage of suitors for the defender. 

#1 Edinson Cavani

Paris Saint-Germain’s all-time record goalscorer, Edinson Cavani is another player who will become a free agent in the summer. The Uruguayan has scored 200 goals for the Ligue 1 champions, despite this, they have decided against renewing his contract. 

The striker was keen to move on in January, and Atletico Madrid nearly put Cavani out of his misery, but the deal broke down at the last moment.

Since then, the 33-year-old has been linked to a host of clubs, including Chelsea, and Atletico of course. A player who is adept at playing anywhere across the frontline, Cavani has played only 22 times for Paris Saint-Germain this season. 

He has scored seven goals within that time and has also provided three assists. The former Napoli forward is renowned for his work ethic and should be a man in-demand when the transfer window commences.
