Paris Saint-Germain have had to tighten up their summer priorities in the wake of Uefa’s Financial Fair Play directive, but still want Chelsea’s Eden Hazard.
The French champions have a 20 million fine to pay for being in breach of FFP regulations and will be faced with a summer of player exits as they try to balance the books.
However, the Paris club remain keen to bring in some new faces and have prioritised certain areas that need attention. PSG are looking to sign three players, according to comments fromcoach Laurent Blanc relayed in Le 10 Sport, with an “offensive player left, a versatile midfielder and a right sided defender like Daniel Alves” the key positions.
The Paris club have been long term admirers of Chelsea’s Hazard, although the Belgian winger could well be out of their price range for now and has previously stated he intended to stay at Stamford Bridge next season.
However, the interest in Hazard signifies that Ezequiel Lavezzi and Javier Pastore will definitely leave PSG in the summer as they look to trim the wage bill.
Meanwhile, PSG are closing in on Barcelona’s Alves who will bring an end to his glittering career at the Nou Camp this summer.
