Paris Saint-Germain seems prepared for the season without Marco Verratti, Hugo Ekitiké, Renato Sanches, and Juan Bernat.
This is the following report from RMC Sport journalist Fabrice Hawkins who revealed that they have been told to look for their next football club.

It was reported that Luis Campos and Luis Enrique discussed this development with them.
Neymar had recently reportedly told the club he wanted to leave the club with a preference for a return to Barcelona.
Verratti, on his part, has been linked with some clubs this summer and could join some stars in Saudi before the transfer window closes next month.

21-year-old Ekitiké, who joined the team last summer, seemed to be struggling to settle down and nailing a regular shirt.

PSG recently gave a green light on the move of Sanches. The 25-year-old Portuguese, who had reportedly agreed on personal terms with Roma, could join the Gialorossi on loan. Although PSG initially wanted a loan deal with an obligation to buy next summer, they have agreed to let him go on a loan to Italy without obligation to buy as the Italian club doesn’t have the financial power for it.

Bernat has been a nit par player in the team and deemed surplus to requirement.
Les Parisiens are reportedly discussing with Chelsea over Neymar, who is open to a loan deal. But the deal could prove difficult due to the Brazilian’s wage demand as the list of clubs able to pull off a move is short.
The Brazilian also doesn’t fancy moving to Saudi Arabia, where the top clubs could conveniently pay his salary.
It is left to see if one of the Saudi bigwigs will meet PSG’s reportedly hefty €80m price tag for Veratti. However, a deal could be done for around €60m.

Ekitiké, who had since moved to Paris last summer, scored just four Ligue 1 goals in the previous domestic campaign and is on the radar of premier league club Everton.

The Liverpool-based team has reportedly submitted a verbal offer for the French forward, thought to be worth €40m, including bonuses.

Sports Zone also reported that Les Parisiens are attempting to use Ekitiké as a makeweight in a deal to sign Randal Kolo Muani from Eintracht Frankfurt. So, there could be a swap deal between both clubs.

The four players, including Kylian Mbappe, were excluded from Wednesday morning’s traditional LFP photo session. This is a strong indication that they no longer feature in the plans of the Ligue 1 champions.
