MERCATO – After the victory against Urawa in a friendly, Galtier spoke about the PSG transfer window

At the heart of the tour in Japan, neither the development of the PSG brand nor on the Asian continent and even less the result of the friendly matches against the local teams occupied the minds at the press conference. Summer period and a big European club oblige, it is the transfer window that Christophe Galtier talked about a lot this Saturday, after the victory of his players against the Urawa Red Diamonds (0-3).

Essential on the subject, the Neymar case was obviously discussed. And the least we can say is that the French technician seems to have little visibility on this file. “Neymar has been working well since the start of the season, rejoiced Galtier. He seems happy to me too, he is very fit. After what will happen in the near future, when the transfer market closes, I don’t know…” he then tempered.

No one talks to each other

The two men would not even have discussed the situation: “I did not have an individual interview with him on this aspect, confessed Galtier. But he does not seem to me to be disturbed by all that can be said about him and his situation at the club, through the training sessions, and the joy he has in training.” he wanted to reassure.

On the Brazilian’s side, the situation does not seem much clearer. If he is sure he wants “stay at the club“, he assured that he knows nothing about the position of PSG: “So far the club haven’t told me anything so I don’t know what their plans are for me.” swore the former Barcelonan. He who is now under contract with Paris until 2027, according to The Team, has been rumored in recent days. The capital club would have offered him to Manchester City. Case to follow.

Kalimuendo scores points

But the stars are not the only animators of the transfer window of the city of light. Between the plethora of very high-level players already present in almost all positions, new arrivals (Vitinha, Ekitike) and potential signings (Skriniar, Renato Sanches, Mukiele), Parisians with a vague future are legion. But one of them, with two goals scored in 90 minutes of play, has been on a mission since the start of preparation: Arnaud Kalimuendo. The Parisian titi has only one objective, to catch the eye of his new coach. And it’s on the right track.

What would the PSG defense give with Skriniar?

I’m obviously happy with what he does every day in training, what he brings to the gamecongratulated Galtier. Afterwards, there is the reality of the market, of the transfer window at the moment T. We will see as the days go by, both the position of Kali, and that of the club“. Kalimuendo, who is coming off a successful season on loan with Lens (32 appearances in Ligue 1 for 12 goals), is at a pivotal moment in his career.

After having made his ranges in a good way in Artois, the 20-year-old striker knows he can claim better than a series of loans. And knowing he was courted, he shared his desires with his trainer: “He is a player in great demand, whether in France or abroad.underlined the former technician of the Gym and the Mastiffs. Having exchanged a little with him, and also with Luis Campos, after having lived a complete and prolific season last season, he wishes to have a high playing time“Leave or take the risk of staying and being eclipsed, for the moment Kalimuendo is in the dark. Only one thing is certain, with the arrival of Ekitike as a bonus, we will have to work hard to find a place.
