PSG are preparing to offload all of their Argentinian players except Lionel Messi this summer, according to 90 Min via L’Equipe. The Ligue 1 giants are planning a major squad reshuffle at the end of another disappointing campaign. Except for the seven-time Ballon d’Or winner, all the Argentine players have been told they will be allowed to leave.

Angel di Maria is in the final months of his deal with the Parisians and won’t be offered a new contract. The former Manchester United star has been a vital part of the squad since joining the club. However, he has seen his chances dry up since Messi arrived in Paris last summer.

Leandro Paredes and Mauro Icardi, meanwhile, will also go on sale at the end of the season. Both players have struggled for first-team opportunities this season and are not part of the club’s future plans. Messi is the only Albiceleste star still wanted at the Parc des Princes.

Mauricio Pochettino has the seven-time Ballon d’Or winner firmly in his plans, provided he remains in charge of PSG beyond the summer. The 34-year-old is also determined to stick to his contract, which extends until next summer.

🗣️ Ronaldinho on Kylian Mbappe: “If I want to see him stay here? That would be lovely, wouldn’t it? See the best players evolve together in Paris and win the Champions League.#Mbappe #KylianMbappé #PSG #UCL https://t.co/EeMhZ6LblD

However, speaking to Prime Video Sport France, Ronaldinho says Mbappe could win the UEFA Champions League with the Parisians.

“If Mbappé has everything to succeed at PSG? Exactly, in my time, this was not the case. The club is now on par with the biggest. He can become the best player in the world and win the Champions League playing at Paris Saint-Germain,” Ronaldinho said.

He continued:

“If I want to see him stay here?” That would be lovely, wouldn’t it? See the best players evolve together in Paris and win the Champions League.”

Alexandre Lacazette says he was never interested in joining the Parisians. The Frenchman rose to prominence with Lyon before joining Arsenal in 2017. Speaking to Canal Football Club, Lacazette said he chose to stay with Les Gones because he loved the competition.

“Few titles won? It’s true that it’s frustrating, but it’s part of my life and my career. Maybe six years ago I could have gone to PSG, and now I would have already won 10 or 12 more trophies. But that didn’t interest me,” Lacazette said.

He continued:

“Because already in France, I am Lyon. And then Paris they are easy in the French championship. It was not my goal; I want to win with a team where there is competition, where it’s…I’m not going to say where it’s a bit more complicated, but…I didn’t want to take it easy,” Lacazette said.

The Frenchman is expected to leave Arsenal as a free agent this summer.
