PSG’s full pre-season squad for Japan tour

As confirmed by the club, PSG have selected a 25-man squad to travel to Japan for a pre-season tour, sending a signal to several high-profile players who have been left out that they will be expected to find a new club before the end of the window.

Director Antero Henrique, in charge of selling players, was handed a list of 11 unwanted names to be sold before September last week, but many of those names have still been included in the tour party. The full squad is as follows:

1. Keylor Navas
2. Achraf Hakimi
3. Presnel Kimpembe
4. Sergio Ramos
5. Marquinhos
6. Marco Verratti
7. Kylian Mbappé
8. Leandro Paredes
9. Mauro Icardi
10. Neymar Jr
14. Juan Bernat
15. Danilo Pereira
16. Sergio Rico
17. Vitinha
19. Pablo Sarabia
22. Abdou Diallo
24. Thilo Kehrer
25. Nuno Mendes
27. Idrissa Gueye
28. Eric Junior Dina Ebimbe
29. Arnaud Kalimuendo
30. Lionel Messi
33. Warren Zaïre-Emery
90. Alexandre Letellier
99. Gianluigi Donnarumma

Those missing from the tour squad include Georginio Wijnaldum (31), Julian Draxler (28), Layvin Kurzawa (29) and Ander Herrera (32). The likes of Leandro Paredes, Abdou Diallo and Danilo Pereira are surprise inclusions in the group given that Paredes has seen more interest than most from the likes of Juventus and Manchester United while Diallo is perhaps the closest to leaving Paris with AC Milan interested. Danilo, meanwhile, was reportedly concerned that he was going to be left out of the tour party after a frank exchange with Luis Campos.
