See you soon. Who will almost certainly leave Ligue 1 in winter
On the first day of the new year in Europe, the transfer window opened. Large teams are looking for a point gain at problematic positions, while weak teams are preparing to feel like shopaholics, buying all players in a row to preserve their places in the championship.
Nevertheless, I would like to focus on possible sales, of which there will be a large number of clubs. Let’s talk about those who stayed in the top clubs of France and almost certainly will change their residence permit in the winter.
“PSG”: the discharge of unnecessary cargo and the loss of the main midfielder
“Paris Saint-Germain” has already won the championship – you can be sure of that by looking at the League 1 standings right now. The capital team under the leadership of Thomas Tukhelya confidently marches at the head of the championship, having forty-seven points and not a single defeat in seventeen matches.
The main candidate for parting with PSG is considered to be midfielder Adrian Rabio. The 23-year-old Frenchman, who did not play at the World Championships last summer, has no drawback in practice, but the midfielder wants to get even more game minutes and money. The player’s agent is his own mother, Veronica, who has been involved in Adrian’s transfer business throughout his career. There are rumors that Tottenham, Barcelona and Milan are interested in Adrian, but the player himself has already rejected the offer of the English club due to the fact that his personal ambitions disagree on the level with the lily-white ambitions.
Interest “Spurs” was due to problems in the center of the field – Moussa Dembele is constantly in the hospital, Harry Winks is not pulling the role of the main player, Eric Dyer has slightly reduced his requirements, while Victor Wanyama is completely on the transfer list. The Rossoneri have serious problems with financial sanctions, so they are seeking to enlist the services of Cesc Fabregas and Rabio as free agents. Nevertheless, the Frenchman wants to move exclusively to the grand, for the role of which the current Milan does not pull at all, while the Spurs with a stretch can apply for this “position”. “Barcelona” seems to be the only acceptable option for Rabio, but so far the rumor has not reached further. The probability of leaving Rabio is almost 100 percent due to the fact that the player himself is not interested in prolonging the cooperation with the club – he has already rejected two proposals for a new contract.
If the withdrawal of Rabio, whose contract is no longer valid in the summer, is highly likely, then a farewell to Hese Rodriguez looks inevitable. The 25-year-old Spaniard, who was raised in Real Madrid, moved to Paris in the summer of 2016, but since then he has only 9 matches in Ligue 1 and two business trips to Las Palmas and Stoke City. This season, the long-suffering Spaniard has never even appeared in the application “Paris Saint-Germain” – he simply does not need Tuchel. In a recent interview, Rodriguez admitted that he was eagerly awaiting the opening of the transfer window. So far, there is no specifics about his new job, but even if he does not find a new club in January, the contract will be terminated by Hese by mutual agreement of the parties.
And again about “PSG”. Erik Shupo-Moting’s transfer was initially perceived by fans of European football very skeptical. The 29-year-old player of the Cameroon national team, who took part in two world championships in a row, moved to the French Grand Prix from Stoke City, who left the Premier League last May.
This season, the Cameroonian has practically no match practice in Ligue 1, and now rumors are spreading in the press about Eric’s departure, at least on loan. In Paris, the player did not take root due to the fact that his level does not correspond to the general level of “Paris Saint-Germain”. Departing from Stock, showing good football, is one thing, while becoming a system player for the grand is another matter. The probability of leaving Chupo-Moting is close to 80 percent, so you should not be surprised if a player will finish the current season in another club.
“Marcel”: banish reservists
Fast forward to time in Marseilles, where in the same-name club, which ranks sixth, the former Zenit defender Tomash Gubochan doesn’t have anything to do. The 33-year-old defender of the Slovak national team received only 11 minutes of playing time, and now he is looking forward to suggestions. It is very likely that the Slovak will return to the well-known Russia, where he worked for the benefit of Zenit and Dynamo for 8 years.
It is completely incomprehensible that for the sake of “Marseille” acquired the Croatian defender Duje Tsaletu-Chara last summer. On the account of a promising defender, for whose signature Moscow Spartak and Sevilla competed in July, only four games in Ligue 1. French publications report that the holder of a double name will have to change their place of deployment due to lack of practice – the defender is extremely dissatisfied with the current state of affairs.
