PSG: Abundance in signings, austerity in income

PSG: Abundance in signings, austerity in income

Nine million is the money that PSG has entered in sales during the transfer market for the sales of Mitchel Bakker (Bayer Leverkusen) and Alphonse Aréola (West Ham), after having spent 76 million in Achraf and Danilo , the balance of the Parisian team in the market has ended with a deficit of 67 million euros.

Some figures far from the intention that Leonardo had in June to balance the losses that the club had had during the pandemic.

Leonardo's four open fronts at PSG -

In June, the sporting director of PSG sent an entry of income and expenses to the DNCG, the financial body that controls the clubs in France, in which he indicated that the objective was to approach €180 million throughout the year (which ends in July of the next season). Both L'Équipe and many French media stressed that PSG could not sign without making some important sales. Exits that, after finishing the market, have not taken place.

The DNCG (National Directorate of Management Control) does not force you to sell if you guarantee solvency and inject money by making it public to mitigate your losses (undoubtedly the PSG has plenty of these guarantees) , but something has characterized the regulator in recent years It is the severity with which it acts against various French clubs when it comes to applying sanctions.

Yesterday, for example, Olympique Marseille were unable to sign Amine Harit because he had to show sufficient funds so as not to overload the transfer compensation and payroll items on his balance sheet. Given that, the club's only option in less than 24 hours is to get rid of some of its greatest assets: its players.

Currently PSG, which wanted to compensate for the more than 200 million euros of deficit that it accumulated in the pandemic , has a total of 35 players that it would have been able to dispose of: in use, sale or loan.


However, despite the fact that PSG has formed one of the best squads in history and is one of the top favorites to win the Champions League, many of its players will be left off the list, even from UEFA.
