Club: Why can’t PSG loan its players abroad this season?

Immersed in the winter transfer window, PSG can no longer negotiate a loan abroad for its players when it has already reached the maximum quota of eight players aged over 21 loaned outside French soil this season, underlines L’Équipe.

PSG’s big summer laundry was effective with no less than 28 starts. As soon as he arrived on the Parisian bench, Christophe Galtier had expressed his desire to work with a reduced group and the wish of the technician of the capital club was granted because in particular shared by Luis Campos and Nasser Al-Khelaïfi. However, PSG did not find final exit doors for all of its players since several left Paris in the form of a loan.

This winter, PSG will not be able to rely entirely on this formula in terms of departures. In its official regulations, FIFA limits the number of temporary transfers abroad of players over the age of 21 to eight as highlighted by L’Équipe. A quota already reached by the Parisian club with Mauro Icardi (29 years old, Galatasaray), Julian Draxler (29 years old, SL Benfica), Layvin Kurzawa (30 years old, Fulham), Abdou Diallo (26 years old, RB Leipzig), Ander Herrera (33 years old, Athletic Bilbao), Leandro Paredes (28 years old, Juventus), Eric Junior Dina Ebimbe (22, Frankfurt) and Georginio Wijnaldum (32 years old, AS Roma).

Rico loaned to AC Milan, an impossible equation

If the question of a loan had recently arisen for Sergio Rico at AC Milan, the Spaniard’s departure to Lombardy in this form is not possible at the moment. To make possible a new loan from a player concerned by these established criteria, PSG would have to break another, either by repatriating one of its proteges or by registering a definitive departure via an exercise of option to purchase. Among the current loanees, Abdou Diallo and Eric Junior Dina Ebimbe have a good chance of continuing their adventure in Germany.

On the other hand, PSG reserves the right to loan young players to French clubs if it wishes. This does not seem to be the current trend since the capital club intends to keep Ismaël Gharbi, Warren Zaire-Emery or even Ilyes Housni according to recent press reports. A player like Lucas Lavallée, stuck in the hierarchy of goalkeepers and close to a loan to Troyes last summer, can still leave PSG on loan this winter.
