Visit Paris Saint Germain today from 4:00 pm (Argentina time) until Angerswith the possibility of becoming champion five dates in advance.
The team led by Pochettino from Rosario has 74 points and leads 15 at Olympique de Marseille (59): with the success and stumble of his rival – draw or lose – enough to add his tenth star in historyeight of them have been achieved in the past 11 years.
The end of the Argentina season
That was the title chosen by the French press to announce the Argentine exodus coming from PSG after June. A team with superlative financing, enough to comfortably win local tournaments, but with elusive results in European competitions.
The presence of the Paris team does not excite the French fans who are expected to be present in the sense of the Champions League and neither the leaders. After a season that included a painful defeat against Real Madrid in the round of 16 of this competition and an early elimination in the French Cup against Nice, squad changes are coming.

In this sense, PSG’s renewal will include three Argentine players. According to local media, Di María was the first to leave the French club. The 34-year-old from Rosario was relegated to the club’s final presentations and ran from the rear at the coach’s consideration.
Fideo, who is the top assistant in the history of the club where he has won 18 titles, came to the Paris team in 2015 after a lackluster season at Manchester United. So far, many clubs are interested in him. He will be released because his contract will end at the end of June and there are several European clubs interested in him.
For the start of the new season, another who seems to have a foot out is Icardi. The 29-year-old striker from Rosario has been relegated by the starting trident: Messi, Neymar and Mbappé; and there will be as a possible destination the Series A. In Calcio he knows how to get his best results and he was even called up to the National Team.
According to The Team The media episodes he lived in with his partner Wanda Nara (about the possible separation) may also have played an important role in this decision. Rosario’s high profile and his wife’s exposure on social networks about the latest fight didn’t go well with French managers and fans. He has a contract until June 2024 and must negotiate.
The third name that appears on this list is Leandro Paredes. But the case of the midfielder coming out of Boca is somewhat different from the previous two. “Bought 47 million euros from Zenit St. Petersburg in January 2019, it never justified the amount invested in the land and generated a lot of criticism, including internal ones,” the French outlet launched.
The American champion will only come out if something significant is given to him, as his weight in the locker room is important and his good relationship with Messi gives him extra value.
The strong midfielder, with a past in Chievo Verona, Rome and Empoli, came to the Parisian team to establish himself as a fixture in midfield and this is expected to be his breakthrough season. However, injuries played out for him and he could barely play 22 games.
To them should be added the compelling rumors of a possible departure of DT, Mauricio Pochettino, to which candidates have been mentioned to replace him for several months and it is speculation which clubs may accommodate the him on the coaching bench from the second half of the year.
