PSG new signings: January 2024 Arrivals

Confirmed PSG Signing in January 2024

PSG underwent significant changes in the summer transfer window, with high-profile players like Neymar Jr. and Lionel Messi leaving the squad. However, the team retained key player Kylian Mbappe, who signed a new contract last summer, dispelling rumours of a move to Real Madrid.

The coach is pleased with the arrivals of players like Rondal Kolo Muani and Milan Skriniar, contributing to the team's attacking prowess and defensive solidity.

PSG are currently targeting young talents, and one player on their radar is 18-year-old Lille OSC center-back Leny Yoro. The youngster has attracted interest from top clubs like Real Madrid, Bayern Munich, and Liverpool. Despite being in high demand, Yoro's transfer price is relatively low, estimated to be around £17 million.

In addition to Yoro, PSG is also linked with Benfica's Antonio Silva. Silva comes with a higher price tag of £100 million, and he has been a subject of interest from PSG and Real Madrid. If PSG faces challenges in securing Yoro, they may need to make a significant investment to acquire Antonio Silva.

PSG new signing, Lucas Beraldo is the first one to arrive in this January transfer window.

Lucas Beraldo – Sao Paulo – £17m

The 20-year-old Brazilian Defensive Midfielder signed a four-year contract with PSG on January 1, 2024. Since joining the club, he has played three games, accumulating a total of 160 minutes on the field. PSG have faced defensive challenges, especially with the departure of Marco Verratti last summer, and Lucas Beraldo is expected to contribute to strengthening the defensive lineup alongside players like Fabian Ruiz and Vitinha.

Known for his versatility, the left-footed player can operate in various positions, including Defensive Midfielder, Centre Back, or Left Back. In PSG's recent match against US Orleans, Lucas started the game as a left-back. Despite his young age, he gained significant experience at Sao Paulo, playing over 50 games and earning the trust of managers due to his reliability and low susceptibility to injuries.

He has already won his first trophy with PSG as he appeared as a substitute against Toulouse for the Trophée des Champions final.

Confirmed PSG departures in January 2024

All eyes are currently on the future of PSG's star player Kylian Mbappe, who has been strongly linked with a move to Real Madrid. PSG made significant changes last summer, parting ways with players like Lionel Messi and Sergio Ramos on free transfers and selling others, including Neymar Jr. and Marco Verratti, to the Saudi Arabian market.

It seems unlikely that PSG will let go of more players, especially given that the squad was assembled based on the preferences of coach Luis Enrique. There are reports that Paris Saint-Germain right-back Nordi Mukiele is interested in a move to Bayern Munich before the January transfer window closes.

However, Bayern is also in talks with Newcastle over a potential move for Kieran Trippier. It's worth noting that Mukiele failed his medical for AC Milan last summer, so negotiations between the clubs will play a crucial role in any potential transfer.
