“The day I reason that we recruit players to train them for other clubs, it will not last more than 10-15 minutes with my president and Luis saying” it’s time to stop ”. People stay focused on “they buy for X, they sell for Y. The player arrives, he stays 18 months or 12 months and then he leaves” but there is not a French club that may not sell except Paris Saint-Germain.
“Everyone else is forced to sell and everyone else is like us. But they don’t assume it. I am in this project there, with young players who come from all walks of life and I find that it is very fulfilling,”Galtier stated in an interview with Canal Plus.
” I expect Gabriel, Osimhen or even Ikoné to leave? Yes, I integrated them into the team. I don’t want them to leave, but they will leave. I can’t veto a player’s departure, this is the project.”
