Kehrer, Mbappé, Florenzi… These Parisians who may be playing their last match

The trip to Brest, this Sunday, will remain as the last outing of several players in the Parisian workforce. It remains to be seen which ones.

Leonardo has a job. Not that much, otherwise Paris would not have reached the half of the Champions League, but a little anyway. With Mauricio Pochettino, the Parisian sports director will soon have to dive into the transfer window of the 2021 offseason. In fact, he obviously did not wait for the last day of Ligue 1 and this trip to Brest this Sunday (9 p.m.) to think about it . Especially since it is not the obtaining or the loss of the title of champion of France that will change the situation. Before buying, however, PSG will have to think about selling. Although, in the case of Kylian Mbappé, it is the player who will make the decision. For the rest, a number of players could play their last match in Red and Blue at Francis-le-Blé. Not Neymar, Juan Bernat, Angel Di Maria, Julian Draxler or Keylor Navas, recently extended. Not either the essential Marquinhos, Marco Verratti, Idrissa Gueye or Presnel Kimpembe, a priori untouchable. Overview of potential starters.

Kylian Mbappé, deafening silence
“Everything is clear. We know Kylian’s situation, he knows what we think, ”said Leonardo at the end of April. It remains to be seen what the said Mbappé thinks. And there, it is less clear… “The moment to decide will arrive, for sure. When? Today, it is not important ”, still said“ Leo ”, on Canal +. Except that the fateful moment is approaching. Admittedly, the world champion still has a year of contract. But nobody imagines the PSG taking the risk of seeing him go free in 2022. Either he prolongs, or he leaves this summer. Maybe in Real, maybe elsewhere. In any case, it is Kylian Mbappé who has the cards in hand. And the world at his feet. Coach of Monaco, beaten by PSG on Wednesday in the Coupe de France final (2-0), Niko Kovac is well placed to talk about the prodigy of Bondy, executioner of his team at the Stade de France. “This is why all the clubs in the world want Mbappé. We had it, but this is no longer the case, ”smiles the Monaco coach. Pochettino may soon be saying the same. Good news ? According to the indiscretions of the Parisian, Kylian Mbappé would give priority to Paris Saint-Germain. To see what that means …

Return to sender for Kean and Florenzi?
The Parisian management will have to quickly position themselves on the Italian internationals Moise Kean and Alessandro Florenzi, respectively loaned by Everton and Roma. Author of 19 goals in 45 matches, versatile and powerful as a buffalo, the first named has generally seduced his world. And this even if he had trouble regaining his level after contracting Covid-19. It remains to be seen how much the Toffees value him. In any case, his loan does not come with a purchase option. Florenzi’s, yes. To see if the Parisian decision makers will want to lift it. Of course, the ex-captain of AS Rome has undeniable qualities on the offensive side. Physically and defensively, however, it is fair. Moreover, many right-backs are targeted (Aurier, Trippier…). Author of a remarkable performance against Bayern, Colin Dagba, could he have saved his place. Finally, Danilo Pereira’s option, on loan from Porto, will be automatically lifted if Paris finishes in the top two in L1.

Icardi, la dolce vita in Italy?
If he’s a world-class center-forward, Mauro Icardi may not have the right profile for this team. Certainly, the potential departure of Kylian Mbappé could greatly change the face of PSG. Meanwhile, rumors point to various touches in Italy, where the Argentina international has spent most of his career. Often injured in 2020-21, Icardi scored 13 goals in 27 matches before the last day of L1.

Sarabia, Rafinha, Kehrer, Kurzawa, Bakker: replacements … replaceable
Pochettino might want to put players he fully trusts on the bench next season. It is clear that he is not a big fan of Pablo Sarabia, Rafinha, Thilo Kehrer and Layvin Kurzawa, little or very little used. Mitchel Bakker has often had the opportunity to play. More a choice by default than anything else … Unless he asks to leave, Abdou Diallo, him, showed interesting things, on the left, at Old Trafford or against Barça, or in the axis, his favorite position . To see if Ander Herrera, not the most flashy but often reliable, will pass the cut. We can already predict that Leo Paredes will not be sold … unless there is a very juicy offer.

Letellier, last player at the end of the contract
Leonardo managed to extend several players at the end of the contract. There is only one left in this case: Alexandre Letellier, third goalkeeper of the Parisian club. Will the native of Paris be kept, while Marcin Bulka will return to the club after his loan to Châteauroux? He hasn’t played a game this season. One thing is certain: Sergio Rico has, a priori, no reason to be added to the list of potential starters.
