As announced by Foot Mercato and confirmed by RMC Sport, Presnel Kimpembe has been put on the list of players likely to be sold this summer by Paris Saint-Germain and Luis Campos. The name of the Parisian central defender returns insistently in Italy.
The end of an era in Paris? Trained at Paris Saint-Germain, whose captain’s armband he wore and with whom he reached the France team, Presnel Kimpembe was placed on the summer transfer list by Luis Campos, PSG’s sports adviser. Information indicated this Thursday by Foot Mercato, which we are able to confirm.
Our colleagues argue that the starting price to afford the 27-year-old French defender, insistently announced on the side of Juventus by the Italian press, is 50 million euros. “Presko” is under contract with Paris until June 2024.

A personal reflection started several weeks ago
We have told you in recent weeks that the Parisian number 3 was already asking questions last season about his long-term future. The French international (28 caps) was aware of being at a pivotal moment in his career, wondering whether this off-season is the right time or not to leave, after eight seasons at the club.
In a press conference with the Blues, at the beginning of June, the Valdoisien had also publicly expressed his thoughts. “Everyone knows my love for PSG. It’s mutual. I’m turning 27 in August, a key moment in my career. My next contract will be important. I’m waiting to meet the new sports management, to know the new project, I’m interested. We’ll have to discuss fairly quickly,” he said.
