At the moment, the three top players that the club is interested in are Achraf Hakimi, Theo Hernandez, and Serge Aurier. Not only that, but recently, Pochettino has stated that he is displeased with how the club operates and that he wants to leave as well.

Such is the case with Bet365 football betting, one of the most reputable online bookmakers in the world.
But, enough talk about betting. Let’s get back to the main topic of this article and start PSG’s top transfers in the last decade.
We are going to start things off with Marco Verratti. The Italian midfielder joined PSG from Pescara back in 2012. At the time, his fee was around $11 million. He had the focus of many top tier teams, including Juventus in his native country, but PSG managed to snatch him. The rest is history. He grew to be one of the best midfielders in Europe and a vital part of PSG’s team. The 28-year old has won numerous titles since he joined the club and his current market value is $50 million.
Next up, we have one of the most legendary defenders of the new generation. After being a part of AC Milan’s team for three years (2009-2012), PSG managed to buy him for a price of $40 million back on July 14, 2012. At the time, Silva was one of the young prospects that had a lot of potential and PSG helped him reach the best version of himself. The 36-year old Brazilian played a total of 315 games for PSG and won numerous titles during his time. In 2020, he decided that it is time for a change, hence he joined Chelsea on a free transfer.
Of course, we cannot name this list without mentioning the one that does not compare himself to humans – the legendary Ibrahimović. Zlatan seems to be like wine – the older he gets, the better he is. One interesting stat showed that the number of goals that he scored after he was 30 was greater than the number of goals before hitting 30. He joined PSG in 2012, played 180 games and scored 156 goals He assisted another 60.
Now, we have the world’s most expensive player. There’s no denying the fact that Neymar is one of the best players in the world right now. But, one thing that he keeps struggling with is injuries. Statistics have shown that he missed exactly 50% of the PSG games due to injuries. However, that does not mean that he is not a deadly striker as he has a goal contribution in every match that he’s played. In a total of 116 matches, Neymar has scored 87 goals and assisted another 52, which is remarkable.
Finally, Mbappe is set to be the greatest football player of all time. Even though he is just 22 years old, he has won pretty much every trophy available, apart from the CL. He even won the World Cup with France back in 2018. He joined PSG the same year and so far, he’s had 132 goals on 150 matches.
