While PSG's summer transfer window of 2023 can be considered done on the signings front, the selling of multiple players have ramped up of late in the Parisian HQ including four of them in the past few days: Leandro Paredes, Renato Sanches, Abdou Diallo, and Neymar.
Starting Tuesday, French media is suggesting a possible exit for Juan Bernat as a consequence of Nuno Mendes' steady improvement and Lucas Hernandez's arrival in Paris, leaving the Spaniard facing a steep hill on his way to earning minutes.
The new situation has forced Luis Campos and Luis Enrique, PSG's football advisor and new coach respectively, to inform Bernat, along with Hugo Ekitike and Marco Verratti, that they are no longer part of the club's future plans. This revelation emerged from interviews that reportedly took place on August 9, according to RMC Sport.
As a result, opportunities are burgeoning for Juan Bernat. L'Equipe has been the latest outlet to detail that Union Berlin and Bayer Leverkusen have shown interest in recent days.
Notably, RB Leipzig, a third German club, is also reportedly in the mix and might have already made an inquire about the Spaniard's availability.
According to L'Equipe, RB Leipzig, backed by the Red Bull group, has positioned itself for a potential loan deal that includes a purchase option for the left-sided player.
Having already secured El Chadaille Bisthiabu from PSG and super-prospect Xavi Simons on loan, RB Leipzig's leadership could initiate discussions with PSG to finalize a loan arrangement for Juan Bernat building on the great relationship they have already established with the French champions thanks to the other business they have done with them through the start of the summer transfer window.
Bernat would do well in leaving PSG for whoever out there that wants him if he wants to play next season ahead of the Euro 2024, as his path toward playing time in Paris seems to be buried five feet underground.
