The PSG “in agony” on the financial level?

PSG presented a debt of more than 200 million euros to the DNCG in December, according to L’Equipe. Which revives the rumors about the sale of Kylian Mbappé.

The financial situation of Paris Saint Germain, like that of many football clubs in France and Europe, is particularly difficult. According to L’Equipe, the club of the capital would have announced a deficit of 204 million euros last December, during its passage before the DNCG (National Directorate of Management Control). In any case, these are the forecasts of the Parisian leaders concerning the club’s losses, on a budget of around 600 million euros. This is an increase of 60% compared to the 125 M € deficit of the previous fiscal year, 2019-2020.

With the closed door imposed for several weeks, and which could last a long time, the PSG would estimate its shortfall between 120 and 130 million euros, just for the ticket office. And we must also take into account the huge losses to come linked to the TV rights crisis.

Result, Leonardo, like his predecessors, will have to sell players. But that is clearly not the Brazilian’s strong point. This season, PSG have only yielded Loïc Mbe Soh, for 5 million euros. We are far from the 60 million sales that the capital club would need each year. The problem is that some Parisian players are in no rush to leave a club where they are paid very well. We can thus think of Julian Draxler, on course to complete his contract, which ends next June.

PSG forced to sell Mbappé?

Who else could Leonardo sell? L’Equipe evokes the names of Idrissa Gueye, Leandro Paredes, Abdou Diallo or Thilo Kehrer. But it is that of Kylian Mbappé which returns to the front of the stage. The world champion will be at the end of his contract in 2022, just like Neymar, and this situation raises questions. Will PSG have the means to extend its two jewels? If not, will he choose Neymar, as it seems to be the trend?

If Mbappé does not extend, PSG will certainly be forced to sell him next summer, one year from the end of his contract, to avoid seeing an element that has long been esteemed as the most valuable player go free. merchant on the planet football. These figures on the losses of the PSG thus had an immediate echo in the Spanish press, in particular in the web pages of AS, which thus depicts a PSG “in agony” on the financial plan. From there relaunch the rumors sending Mbappé to Real Madrid, there is only one step.
