Thilo Kehrer was not part of the plans of the new PSG coach, Christophe Galtier, and the new sports management, led by Luis Campos.
He had been placed in "group 2" in training alongside other transferable players like Idrissa Gueye, Rafinha, Ander Herrera or his compatriot Julian Draxler.
Arrived in 2018 at PSG against 37 million euros from Schalke 04, the German will have played 128 games with the capital club without ever managing to win in defense.
A German international (20 caps), he will have won three French championship titles with Paris, 2 French Cups and a League Cup.
