Three ‘Fall Guys’ Emerge In PSG After Champions League Failure

Paris Saint-Germain will now launch a clearout of their squad following their failure to reach this season’s Champions League final.

According to a report in Le Parisien, and cited by Diario Sport, the Parisians are intent on slimming down their wage bill this summer.

The decisions have been accelerated by the club's disappointing elimination in the semi-finals of the Champions League by Manchester City this week.

Mauro Icardi is the highest profile of those up for sale, with the Argentine striker only moving to the French capital a year ago in a £52million move from Inter.

As with Icardi, former Sevilla midfielder Pablo Sarabia has a contract through to 2024 and is unlikely to be short of suitors despite being limited in playing time this campaign.

Full-back Thilo Kehrer is also available having joined from Schalke in 2018.

There are still question marks over a number of other first-team squad players too; Moise Kean, Dutch left-back Mitchel Bakker and Rafinha Alcantara, who joined from Barcelona last summer.
