This Monday, Paris Saint-Germain will face, in the round of 16 of the Coupe de France, the Pays de Cassel, a small northern team playing in R1, the equivalent of the 6th division in France. But while victory should be a formality, Christophe Galtier insisted on the importance of winning and being solid defensively, after two consecutive away defeats, in Ligue 1. And this winter, the Parisian coach would like to see arrive a new element to strengthen its defense.
And the name that often comes up in this position is that of Milan Skriniar. According to our information, the Inter Milan player has two contract offers in hand, a contract extension with his club and that of PSG. And Christophe Galtier is not yet certain. “I saw what came out in the press. Will he come this winter or next summer? I can’t say, I have a lot to work on with my players to work out what needs to be corrected. But the sports management is working to do what needs to be done.”he explained to the press.
PSG looking for a new winger
But for the moment, the only winter movement on the Parisian side has been the departure of Pablo Sarabia, who has gone to Wolverhampton. An element that PSG wants to quickly replace. “Before the start of the transfer window, I said that there would be arrivals only if there were departures. Pablo Sarabia left for the reasons we know. The club is working to have an additional offensive optionassured Galtier, before ironizing on the details of the profile sought. We are looking for a player from the side, tall enough, who goes fast, who strikes with both feet and who can score with a header“.
Finally, asked about the recruitment of a different profile, a “pure 9”, Christophe Galtier explained that it was not a priority. “From the moment I have Neymar, Mbappé and Messi, we are not going to put air centers in the area. There are more combined actions, with balls on the ground, back, especially when you cross. There are clearly defined areas”. An arrival should therefore soon be completed in Paris, at least before the end of the January transfer window.
