But the future of the experienced international (35 years) is written outside the capital. The sports director of PSG Leonardo confirmed, in the Sunday Journal, his departure at the end of the season, after eight years at the club.

It remains to be seen if he will leave on June 30, at the end of his contract, or if he will find an agreement to extend this summer, in order to end the season, in particular the Champions League whose resumption is hoped for in August .

PSG plans to resume training on June 22, in anticipation of a very busy summer which will see it fight both in C1, where it qualified for the quarters, and in Ligue 1, the start of which next season is expected during the weekend of August 22.

The finals of the Coupe de France and the Coupe de la Ligue, suspended due to the coronavirus pandemic, could also be rescheduled at that time for PSG, opposite Saint-Etienne and Lyon respectively.
