Paris Saint-Germain have had one of the greatest summer transfer windows in the history of world football as they look to regain the French Ligue 1 title and win the UEFA Champions League for the first time in their history.
The Parisians surprisingly finished runners-up to Lille last season, which saw them appoint Mauricio Pochettino mid-season. They were eliminated at the semi-final stage of the Champions League, losing 1-4 on aggregate to Manchester City.
PSG have made their intentions to get their hands on Europe’s elite club trophy this season with the signings they have made so far this summer.
Gianluigi Donnarumma, Sergio Ramos and Georginio Wijnaldum have all arrived on free transfers, whilst the club has splashed out €60 million on Achraf Hakimi from Internazionale.
What’s more, the club are expected to sign Lionel Messi in the coming days following his released from FC Barcelona.
Should the greatest footballer of all-time indeed arrive at the Parc des Princes, he would be reunited with Neymar, and teaming up with fellow Argentina internationals Angel Di Maria and Mauro Icardi in attack. On top of that, the club also have superstar Kylian Mbappe…
Donnarumma and Ramos will strengthen their defence that already includes Marquinhos, Presnel Kimpembe and Layvin Kurzawa. Hakimi and Juan Bernat also add attacking threat from full-backs.
Without doubt, the Paris Saint-Germain squad is ridiculously strong on paper and are widely-expected to runaway with the Ligue 1 title this season.
Bookmakers have made PSG as short as 1/8 win the 2021-22 Ligue 1.
Paris Saint-Germain are also the 3/1 favourites to win the 2021-22 Champions League, which would likely shorten should they sign Lionel Messi as expected.
