PSG has a sumptuous forward line consisting of Neymar, Kylian Mbappe, and Edinson Cavani.

However, the impressive riches of the forward line is quite not reflected in the midfield.

PSG manager, Unai Emery is determined to strengthen the team's midfield and have approached Isco for a move to the Parc des Princes.

Isco has been an integral part of Zinedine Zidane's team and has already scored 5 goals this season.

However, the return of Gareth Bale puts a question over Isco's spot in the team. Bale is a big name and has also shown good form since his return to action as he scored in the semi-finals of the Club World Cup after coming on as a substitute.

It would be difficult for Zidane to keep Bale out and it is likely that Isco will be the man to make way for the Welsh winger to play alongside Karim Benzema and Cristiano Ronaldo.

PSG is ready to capitalize if such a situation arises and will try to force a move if Isco decides to move on.

It has just been four months since Neymar left Barcelona for PSG and the Brazilian is again being linked with a switch to their bitter rivals - Real Madrid.


The Sun reported that Neymar's father has reportedly promised Florentino Perez that his son will force another move in the summer to join Los Blancos.

The Brazilian forward is not happy at PSG according to close sources and would love to move back to Spain. However, it would be interesting to see if he finally plays in El Clasico but in a Real Madrid shirt.

However, PSG boss, Unai Emery has poured cold water on these rumours and claims Neymar is perfectly happy at the Parc des Princes.

According to, Unai Emery has declared that PSG will be looking to sign a defensive midfielder in the January transfer window as he is looking to add a quality back-up option for Thiago Motta.

PSG's regular holding midfielder, Motta has been suffering from a knee injury and has missed major games in the last six weeks, which has forced Emery to make changes to his plans.

Adrien Rabiot has been given the role a few times this season and he has impressed with his crisp passing, ability to hold possession and defensive prowess.

However, Emery wants to use Rabiot as a central midfielder who will operate more as a playmaker and not as a defensive midfielder. This is why PSG is desperate to secure the services of a holding midfielder when the transfer window opens next month.

As reported by the Daily Mail, PSG has opened transfer talks with Italian goalkeeper, Gianluigi Donnarumma.

The Paris based club tried to sign this young goalkeeper in the summer, but the 18-year-old decided to stay at AC Milan and signed a new contract.

However, things have changed. At that time, Donnarumma was loved and adored by the Milan fans, but a few days back, he was reduced to tears due to jeers and whistles by his own fans. The Milan fans displayed a huge banner telling Donnarumma to leave the club.

In a tense situation like this, it would be no surprise if the young man decides to leave Milan. PSG are trying to exploit the situation and have approached Mino Raiola, the player's agent regarding a move either in January or in the summer.

PSG might finally end up signing this young prospect since he will receive a significant pay rise and a chance to play Champions League football.
