Paris Saint-Germain’s sporting director Leonardo admits the club may have made a mistake in allowing Edinson Cavani and Thiago Silva to move to the Premier League.
Cavani – PSG’s all-time top goalscorer with 200 goals – moved to Manchester United on transfer deadline day, while Thiago Silva switched Paris for London in August, joining Chelsea.
Both club legends were allowed to leave for free and the Ligue 1 giants have struggled without the duo, losing to both United and RB Leipzig in the Champions League.
And Leonardo has suggested that the French side may have acted too rashly over the summer.
The PSG sporting director said: “At one moment, we have to say ‘what are we going to do’?
“We spoke clearly with them. It was a moment where we could not give them exactly what they wanted. It was a financial and generational problem.
“It was the moment to count on Marquinhos and Kimpembe. The decisions were difficult to take. Aside from that, we could have made a mistake.”
