The die is cast. Unsurprisingly, Marco Verratti is not on Paris' 24-man Champions League list. At the club since 2012, the little Italian is announced on departure. We evoke his name with insistence in Qatar, he who has never been retained by Luis Enrique since the start of the season. Pushed towards the exit this summer, Hugo Ekitike is also not part of the A list of PSG for the European season. Ditto for Layvin Kurzawa, Julian Draxler (mentioned in Qatar) and goalkeeper Alexandre Letellier. It should be noted that Luis Enrique took on Keylor Navas in addition to Gigio Donnarumma and Arnau Tenas in goal. And this while the Costa Rican veteran was once announced as a starter, returning from a loan to Nottingham Forest. Little used so far, Carlos Caler is part of the list of 24 names.
Note that each club can retain up to 25 players in Europe. There is also a B list, with young people. According to RMC, Ethan Mbappé and Ilyes Housni are notably part of that of Paris-SG. Last but not least, PSG did not retain the young (18-year-old) Italian midfielder Cher Ndour, poached from Benfica this summer. Remember that the club with 11 French championship titles inherited a strong group in C1, with Dortmund, AC Milan and Newcastle. Kylian Mbappé, Lucas Hernandez, Ousmane Dembélé, Randal Kolo Muani, Manuel Ugarte and company will start on September 19, in Paris, against Borussia.
