Paris Saint-Germain are set to undergo a massive overhaul during the upcoming summer. Despite being 90 minutes away from winning the domestic treble, the early Champions League exit means Spanish boss Unai Emery will probably leave the side and all signs indicate Thomas Tuchel will be announced as his replacement.
The former Borussia Dortmund boss is set to improve the squad and he is expected to sign “at least a few” players from the Bundesliga. And if the recent reports from French media outlet Le Parisien are deemed true, then the recently-crowned Ligue 1 champions will be in play for two of the top young talents in Germany.
The aforementioned report indicated that PSG are keen to make a push for Borussia Dortmund’s Julian Weigl, and Schalke 04’s Max Meyer. While Weigl will initially come to replace Thiago Motta, who is expected to depart the club this summer, Meyer would be an addition for free since the talented midfielder is set to leave his current club once his deal expires at the end of the season.
Weigl’s transfer would probably be subject to PSG fulfilling the Financial Fair Play regulations, though. But the interest is there, and it wouldn’t be strange to see the talented German playmaking moving to France in the near future to take the next step in his career.
