Paris Saint-Germain did not have a successful transfer window, according to the team’s football advisor Luis Campos.
After Mauricio Pochettino left, the French champions underwent a dramatic makeover under Campos, who quickly named Christophe Galtier as the Argentine’s replacement.
Vitinha and Fabian Ruiz were among the acquisitions made by PSG’s new management, although they could not sign Inter defender Milan Skriniar.
Meanwhile, Campos was unimpressed with the club’s transfer window dealings partly because of that defensive gap.
He told RMC Sport:
“We are coming to the end of the transfer window without the perfect balance. We have excellent quality in the squad, no doubt. But, in the end, it was not ideal.
“It’s always hard to have perfection. But we work to be as close as possible to perfection. This is a severe problem for us.
“When we have three central defenders, and we started playing with them, it puts us in difficulty. I’m not going to talk about names. We didn’t just speak to Skriniar. However, If we are missing a piece, the puzzle is not complete.
“We did not have a good transfer window. The transfer window is a long time. The first week, we managed to make Vitinha. After that, we have six or seven weeks without anything. In the last week, everything has been much more expensive.”
Additionally, Campos described the significant workload Galtier that he inherited in the French city, including the squad’s need for a big purge.
“When I arrived, there were 54 players and no second team. With Christophe, we said we had to be ourselves. We wanted to have 21-22 players.
“With 54 players, PSG must ensure financial fair play, which is complex. Complex measures have been taken. We created a different model.
“The economy and sports must work together. We are a football club. The priority has been the economic filter. For me, it is obvious.
“When the club thinks of only sports and forgets the economics, it is a disaster. The opposite is the same.”
