Title winning, but star crumbling: the PSG story

By Razeen Gutta

Paris Saint Germain is set to witness a mass exodus at the end of the season, with Lionel Messi, Sergio Ramos and manager Christophe Galtier set to part ways with the club. 

The French giants were crowned Ligue 1 champions this season for the 11th time, but after failing to achieve on a European front, the summer will require yet another rebuild in Paris.

Argentina’s World Cup-winning captain and all-time great Messi has already confirmed his departure according to multiple reports, with goodbye quotes from the 36-year-old already emerging prior to the club’s last game of the season. 

“I am very happy to have been able to represent PSG,” Messi said per ESPN

“I really enjoyed playing in this team and with such good players. I want to thank the club for this wonderful experience.” 

Alongside Messi, Sergio Ramos has also confirmed his departure — with the pair set to become free agents in the new week.


“Tomorrow I will say goodbye to another stage of my life — and it’s a goodbye to PSG”, Ramos said on Friday per Fabrizio Romano.

According to a report from the French publication L’Equipe, the departure of the two stars may not be the only change at PSG. 

Instead, manager Galtier could also be on the way out despite signing a new contract last year. 

The 56-year-old could make way for Jose Mourinho, who is reportedly one of the primary candidates being looked at by owner Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad.

Mourinho has just a year left on his Roma contract and could be set for a change following his defeat to Sevilla in the Europa League final earlier this week.
