The Manchester City dismissed to Paris Saint-Germain of the Champions League, and the project of To the-Khelaifi goes back to be shipwrecked in spite of the astronomical investment

Calendar of FC Barcelona

Paris Saint-Germain could not stamp his name in the big final of the Champions League. The plant Parisian moved away to make history this Tuesday to classify by second consecutive year to a final of the prestigious tournament. It was one of the most powerful groups after leaving on the way at all less than to the FC Barcelona and Bayern Munich in previous rounds, but could not surpass to the Manchester City of Pep Guardiola (4-1 in the global).

Everything seemed to aim to that this would be the season of the Parisian club: it had a powerful team, led by two stars of world-wide size like Neymar Jr and Kylian Mbappé, and a technician with experience in the elite futbolística: Mauricio Pochettino. But this was not sufficient, the project of Nasser To the-Khelaifi went back to be shipwrecked to a step to reach the glory.

The defeat to hands of the English club showed that with money and strong investment is not sufficient to reach the big aims. It is necessary to have automatisms and ideas on the lawn. The plan of the PSG was to centre it everything in the Brazilian star and, when he could not, anybody answered. The qataríes will have to expect, like minimum a season more if they still wish to heave the so longed for 'Orejona'.

Big investment, scarce result

The PSG has invested, from the arrival of the money qatarí, 1.312 million euros in traspasos. The first signings were cuantiosos, but far with what would be from 2017. They arrived Pastore (42 millions), Lucas Moura (42), Thiago Silva (42) or Cavani (64); but the one who broke the market was the pair Neymar-Mbappé.

In 2017, it was confirmed the signing of the Brazilian star from the FC Barcelona, by which credited at all less than 222 million euros of his clause of rescission. Besides it arrived yielded, with obligation of pertinent purchase of the Monaco, Kylian Mbappé. The young French jewel cost 180 million euros. An investment of 400 million euros.

"We have to be proud"

After suffering the painful elimination, Leonardo, sportive director of the PSG, broke the silence and adopted an optimistic speech, leaving to a side the investment that have done during the last years: "we Have to be proud of what have done in the terrain of game. Our aim was to win. We have played better that they in two parts of four that have contested . We have gone out of situations complicated in the competition".

The sportive director of the PSG did not want to refer to the future of his maximum stars, and said that "I am optimistic with regard to the future". The reality is that neither Neymar Jr neither Mbappé have renewed, and both will remain free of agreement in 2022 and every time the option to remain in the team loses weight: "Honestly, today it is not the day to speak of the future of Neymar and Mbappé neither to announce what was with regard to them".
