Speaking via the club’s official channels, PSG Sporting Director Leonardo was asked about his decision not to offer Thiago Silva and Edinson Cavani new contracts and allow them to exit on free transfers this summer instead.
“At one moment, we have to say “what are we going to do.” We spoke clearly with them… It was a moment where we could not give them exactly what they wanted. It was a financial and generational problem. It was the moment to count on Marquinhos and Kimpembe. The decisions were difficult to take. Aside from that, we could have made a mistake.”
