Mercato Mercato – Paris Saint-Germain: Christophe Galtier announces Renato Sanches… and wants three other recruits at PSG

It’s really not the same style as Mauricio Pochettino. If the former PSG coach always wanted to be evasive about his club’s transfer window, his successor, Christophe Galtier, was more talkative about it. Facing the media Thursday at Camp des Loges, two days before his first league match on the Parisian bench on the lawn of Clermont, the former Nice coach spoke bluntly about the capital club’s transfer market.

Galtier first confirmed the imminent formalization of the signing of Renato Sanches. “Yes, he should arrive this afternoonsaid the Parisian coach about the Portuguese international environment he had already managed in Lille. He is a player who has qualities that others do not have, notably Marco Verratti and Vitinha, he is very explosive, hard-hitting, with impact. There was this opportunity there on the market: he knows both the French championship and the very high level. He will have to fit in. He will be behind on the preparation but he is totally different in terms of explosiveness, to break lines and also to catch up on defensive shots.”

“You asked me how much, I answer you three”

But the Lille midfielder, whose transfer is estimated at 15 million euros, will not be PSG’s last summer recruit. At least that’s what Galtier wants. Asked about the number of reinforcements he wanted to see join the capital club, the Parisian coach replied without hesitation: “Three.” “You asked me how much, I answer you three“, he chained, triggering the laughter of the journalists present for this press conference.

Galtier, on the other hand, did not mention any names, nor did he specify the positions sought for understandable reasons. But he hinted that Paris would also have to record departures. “I know the difficulty of the transfer windowdid he declare. And we’re not here to stack players. I want a certain number of players in my squad and players who are close in terms of level to have healthy competition. Whether these three players will arrive soon, later or not at all, I don’t know. But I know that the club is doing everything to have the best squad.”
