PSG still interested in De Jong, not Koundé

Paris Saint-Germain are still interested in signing Frenkie de Jong from Barcelona, but they have cooled their interest in Jules Koundé, according to Sport.

De Jong has been a long-term target for PSG, and they are expected to make a formal offer for the Dutch midfielder in the summer. However, they will have to wait until they have completed other signings before they can make a move for De Jong.

Koundé was also linked with a move to PSG, but the French club have decided to focus on other targets. They are looking for a more physical central defender, and they believe that Koundé does not fit the profile.

PSG’s defensive needs

PSG have had problems in defense this season, and they are looking to strengthen the area in the summer. They have already signed Lucas Beraldo from River Plate, but they are still looking for another central defender.

PSG’s financial situation

PSG’s financial situation is also a factor in their transfer plans. The club are still under pressure from UEFA to comply with Financial Fair Play regulations.

The departure of Kylian Mbappé will give PSG some financial flexibility, but they will still have to be careful with their spending. They will need to sell some players before they can sign new ones.
