Téléfoot broadcast this Sunday a short interview with Luis Campos, the PSG football adviser.
He was first able to evoke the failure of the recruitment of the Moroccan Hakim Ziyech while a total agreement had been found for the loan of the Moroccan from Chelsea.
The transaction could not be recorded on time Tuesday evening, to the dismay of the Parisian club and the player.
Without ever quoting Chelsea, Luis Campos believes that Paris "did everything".
“But as in all transfers, we need all three parties to work well,” he explains.
There it worked very well with PSG.
Very well with Ziyech.
But, unfortunately, at the last moment, it didn't work out with the other party.
While PSG could not bring in any replacement for Pablo Sarabia, Luis Campos recalls: “We tried to be creative, with the financial constraints that we know.
We need to be respectful of UEFA and FIFA.
But we are ready.
We made a good plan, which involves reducing the number of professional players in the squad, which was very important before, to make room for the youngsters of the club of high quality and not to lose them for other greats. European clubs.
Asked whether he will leave time for these young people trained at the club, he replies: “Of course.
The coach understands very well what our project is.
We know very well that we have to do it, and we will do it!
"This Neymar is an incredible Neymar"
Ten days before the round of 16 first leg of the Champions League against Bayern, the injury of Kylian Mbappé, with an announced unavailability of three weeks, worries the Parisian special adviser.
"Losing Kylian, of course it's hard," he said.
I saw him very sad after his injury.
But I have already seen him also work from morning to evening to speed up his recovery as much as possible.
It is the personality of a winner, of someone very special.
"The truth is that since my arrival at PSG, I have no criticism to make about Neymar. Always on time, always with a good disposition. This Neymar is an incredible Neymar"

Another hot issue in Parisian news: the extension of Lionel Messi.
“At the moment, we are in discussion, confirms Campos.
I would like to keep it in this project, I can't hide it.
I would be delighted if he continued.
We are discussing at the moment to try to reach the goal, and continue to have it with us.
Last element of the MNM: Neymar.
“The truth is that since my arrival at PSG, I have no criticism to make of Neymar, advances Campos about the Brazilian, who turns 31 this Sunday.
He is always on time, always in good spirits.
This Neymar is an incredible Neymar.
He sends a warning in passing, particularly with regard to the other elements of the workforce.
“The big stars are not capable of winning a trophy alone, assures Campos.
They can win one game, two games, or a few games.
But they need the other team members, harmony.
We need the players to have a collective sense.
We have made great progress, but we must continue to progress.
As soon as the coach whistles, as soon as the referee whistles: all together in the same direction as a team.
It's the only way to win.
Finally, about the future training center in Poissy, Campos says: “It's the most beautiful thing I've seen since I arrived.
It is a message to the world that PSG sends: it is already big but it will be very, very big in the future.
