This winter, PSG tried to recruit an attacking element, in particular with the aim of compensating for the departure of Pablo Sarabia, who signed up with Wolverhampton. But no one arrived when Hakim Ziyech seemed very close to joining the capital club. A failure to which Christophe Galtier returned.
After a failed summer transfer window, by the very admission of Luis CamposTHE PSG waited impatiently for the month of January to correct its failures. And quickly, although the opportunity to anticipate the transfer of Milan Skriniar was tempting, the priority turned to the recruitment of an offensive player to compensate for the transfer of Pablo Sarabiawho is involved with Wolverhampton. With this in mind, many names have circulated, such as Rayan Cherkifinally blocked by theOLbut above all by Hakim Ziyech, little used in chelsea. But while the Moroccan international’s loan without an option to buy was on the right track, everything fell apart in the last moments of the transfer window. A failure to which came back Christophe Galtier.

“The club did everything so that Ziyech could join us”
” On the last week of the transfer window, we knew that there was this possibility, the player wanted to come and join us. The club did everything so that he could join us. Unfortunately, that didn’t happen. Zyiech is not there, he is a Chelsea player, we will have to do without him, and especially with those who have played a big part of the season “, explains the coach of the PSG in an interview with Canal+.
Relaunched on the fact of knowing if its workforce had weakened this winter, Christophe Galtier displays his fatalism: You observers and the media could comment on the fact that without Ziyech we find ourselves weaker since Pablo left. But now, there are also young people who need to express themselves. And we can also adapt our game in a different way. »
