PSG should continue its downsizing during the next summer transfer window. A sale is already looming for a junk next summer.
A sale already promised to PSG in 2022?
The time has come for scrubbing at Paris Saint-Germain. After completing prestigious signings during the last summer transfer window, PSG intends to reduce its workforce this winter. Several departures are thus hoped to release the players not in the plans of Mauricio Pochettino. The club of the capital hopes above all to reduce its salary mass with these departures. A first was made official on Monday evening with Rafinha’s loan to Real Sociedad. No longer appeared in the Parisian tunic since October 30, the Brazilian midfielder will finish the season at the 6th of La Liga. If no purchase option has been included, the Basque club intends to study the possibility of keeping the 28-year-old midfielder beyond his loan.
Real Sociedad are already thinking about a Rafinha move
In this sense, the president of Real Sociedad intends to return to the charge in the coming months to discuss a potential transfer of Rafinha. “Our goal was for Rafinha to come as soon as possible. A very demanding month awaits us and we wanted to have him here to help us from the start. It was our dream and we made it come true […] Now we have six months to discuss. I am sure that, when Rafinha has known Real internally, we will be able to speak with more serenity, ”explained Jokin Aperribay on Tuesday during the presentation of the international midfielder Auriverde (2 caps / 1 goal).
A Rafinha sale would do both player and player good Paris Saint Germain. The former FC Barcelona is challenged by competition in Paris and has a starving playing time. He only played 5 games (220 minutes) this season before leaving on loan. His market value is estimated at € 12million on Transfermarkt. Enough to record a few entries in the absence of losing the Brazilian for free in 2023, when his contract expires.
