Paris Saint-Germain is set to change its transfer strategy ahead of the coming season and this could affect Barcelona’s transfer plan this summer.
PSG president Nasser Al-Khelaifi made it clear that the club will not spend heavily to sign players in a recent press conference.
Paris Saint-Germain is prepared to change its approach and seek for a strong sporting project.
The Ligue Champions suffered a shocking exit in the Champions League last season and the head coach Mauricio Pochettino and sporting director Leandro were shown the exit door which marks the beginning of their frugal era, with Christophe Galtier and Luis Campos replacing the two key figures in the club.
Their approach has been economical with the signing of Nordi Mukiele, Hugo Ekitike, and Vitinha for a combined total of no more than €52 million.
PSG is now in the race to sign Manchester City Bernardo Silva a player Barcelona is eyeing to replace Frenkie de Jong who is linked with a move to Chelsea and Manchester United this summer.
Manchester City valued the former AS Monaco star to be €85 million and any of the suitors that can cough out such a fee will have the Portuguese attacker for the coming season as the Premier League Champions will not stand in his way.
Silva,27, won’t rule out a move back to Ligue 1 where he made his name before moving to Manchester City and coupled with the fact that PSG is in a much stronger financial position than Barcelona, could stump them to his services.
