PSG transfers: Every signing and sale for 2021/22
Paris Saint-Germain’s summer transfer window was one of the most remarkable in history as they signed up an array of high-profile talent, headlined by Lionel Messi.
The investment in the squad is testimony to the ongoing desire of the club’s owners to win the Champions League title, having reached the final in 2020 and then the semi-finals in 2021.
Meanwhile, they retained all of their top stars, including Kylian Mbappe, who they turned down a €200 million bid from Real Madrid for on Deadline Day.
REVEALED: Football's most valuable stars
What players have PSG signed in 2021-22?
Achraf Hakimi: €60 - from Inter
Danilo Pereira: €16m - from Porto
Nuno Mendes: Loan - from Sporting CP
Lionel Messi: Free - from Barcelona
Georginio Wijnaldum: Free - from Liverpool
Gianluigi Donnarumma: Free - from Milan
Sergio Ramos: Free - from Real Madrid
Lionel Messi’s move to PSG was one of the headline stories of the summer transfer window, as the Ligue 1 side were quick to pounce after it became evident that Barcelona could no longer afford to keep the six-time Ballon d’Or winner.
PSG have become just Messi’s second club.
Meanwhile, the Parisians were similarly opportunistic to sign Donnarumma from Milan as he could not agree new terms there and Wijnaldum from Liverpool as Barca failed to get the deal over the line.
Sergio Ramos is expected to provide experience in the backline, with the central defender’s winning mentality seen as a major boost for the club.
The arrival of Nuno Mendes from Sporting is an exciting one to fill a problem left-back role, while Danilo Pereira has only been signed because of the terms of his loan deal last season.
What players have PSG sold in 2021-22?
Mitchel Bakker - €7m to Bayer Leverkusen
Kays Ruiz-Atil – Free to Barcelona B
PSG wanted to make significant summer transfer sales but were unable to because of the deflated market and the big money that many of their players are on.
Mitchel Bakker was the one player they did allow to depart, with Leverkusen getting good value for a promising and versatile young defender.
What players have PSG loaned out in 2021-22?
Alphonse Areola to West Ham.
Thierno Balde to Le Havre.
Timothee Pembele to Bordeaux.
Pablo Sarabia to Sporting CP.
Garissone Innocent to Vannes.
Kenny Nagera to Bastia.
Marcin Bulka to Nice.
