Some of Paris Saint-talents Germain’s could be on Manchester United’s radar.
Manchester United may be persuaded to make a summer transfer for five Paris Saint-Germain players as the Ligue 1 powerhouses apparently try to reduce their pay budget. According to reports, the French team wants to reduce their enormous pay expenditure by up to 30%, which would result in a considerable loss of annual salaries in the coming summer.
PSG spent £645million in wages during 2022 to the likes of Kylian Mbappe, Neymar and Lionel Messi according to The Athletic but The Times have claimed that the club are willing to let some of their stars leave this summer in a bid to bring down the current costs. Christophe Galter’s outfit are currently eight points clear at the top of Ligue 1 following a Mbappe and Messi masterclass in their 3-0 win away to second-placed Marseille, but could be facing an exodus. Here, Express Sport looks at five players who United may target this summer that would slash PSG’s wage bill.
PSG’s right-back sensation Achraf Hakimi may be unlikely to leave the club this summer as he is one of the best in the world and one of the team’s few stars on an affordable salary. His close ties to Mbappe are also in the Moroccan’s favour if the forward also remains at the club after his strong links with Real Madrid.
