PSG could see 7 players depart this winter

For all the signings that they made over the summer, including blockbuster acquisitions of Lionel Messi, Sergio Ramos, Gianluigi Donnarumma and Achraf Hakimi, it was never going to be a surprise to see Paris Saint-Germain find themselves in a bit of a problem.

Going by the Ligue 1 table, there is not a problem on the pitch and getting results as Mauricio Pochettino’s side currently sit comfortably at the top as they lead everyone else by 12 points at this stage of the season.

In fact, many would not blame the team’s players and staff if they decided to look for new casino sites to enjoy after training and matchday in order to celebrate what they have managed to achieve thus far.

However, the problems that the Parisians are actually facing is in regards to the actual squad depth that they have available to them, with a recent report suggesting that there could be a mass exodus next month.

Indeed, with January fast approaching, that means the winter transfer window will be in full swing and according to the report published by Foot Mercato, PSG could be about to let seven players go from their first-team, although many of them are fringe players.

The first to be mentioned is Sergio Rico, as he is clearly deemed surplus to requirements at the Parc des Princes, especially with Keylor Navas and Donnarumma clearly ahead of him in the pecking order at the moment.

Thilo Kehrer and Abdou Diallo have both struggled to acquire regular minutes themselves, especially with Hakimi now in the team, thus making them potential departures, whilst the left-hand side of the defence has also seen some problems occur.

Layvin Kurzawa is a player who could be on his way out as he continues to fail to get the minutes he would like with Nuno Mendes and Juan Bernat both being trusted more by Pochettino. Perhaps he can look to enjoy online pokies Australia has to offer whilst he seeks a new move?

The 28-year-old Rafinha could also be likely to leave this winter as well, as the Brazilian is also clearly out of favour in the French capital, with fellow midfielder, Leandro Paredes also thought to be a player who could look to leave and potentially head to Italy.

The final name on the list of seven to have been reported as potential departures is Mauro Icardi, who has really failed to live up to expectations since making the move.

He has managed just 15 appearances in which he has scored three goals across all competitions in the 21/22 season thus far, but could arguably benefit from moving away to get his career back on track, especially as he appears out of favour at the international level for Argentina at the moment, as well.

Of course, PSG is incredibly gifted in attack with the likes of Messi, Neymar and Kylian Mbapp√©, therefore losing a player of Icardi’s undoubted quality might not actually be a huge blow to them.
