Paris Saint-Germain have a plethora of talent in their squad ahead of the 2021-22 season. In addition to Kylian Mbappe and Neymar, the Ligue 1 giants have added Sergio Ramos, Gianluigi Donnarumma, Achraf Hakimi, and Georginio Wijnaldum to their squad, and aren't done just yet.

Mauricio Pochettino still remains at the helm of the club despite rumours linking him back to Tottenham, and PSG seemed undeterred by the financial impact of the coronavirus pandemic as they find themselves linked with a move for Milan star Theo Hernandez.

Here's a look at how PSG can line up next season.


GK: Gianluigi Donnarumma

PSG have two top goalkeepers at the club after Keylor Navas signed a new deal at the club and Donnarumma's signing earlier this week. However, despite Navas' expertise, Donnarumma is still expected to be number one and he's a brilliant addition to an already star-studded squad.


RB: Achraf Hakimi

Hakimi joined PSG in a €60m move from Inter and will star for the side on the right of the defence, either as a right-back or a right wing-back, depending on whether Pochettino plays two or three centre-backs.


CB: Marquinhos

Club captain Marquinhos remains a staple in the side despite the new signings and is an automatic starter. Marquinhos formed a formidable partnership with Thiago Silva at PSG before Silva's move to Chelsea last summer and has filled in his former captain's boots with ease.


CB: Sergio Ramos

The former Real Madrid defender became the Ligue 1 side's latest high-profile signing following an incredible 11-year career at the Bernabeu. Despite his age, Ramos remains one of the world’s most fearsome defenders, and will no doubt help PSG in their bid to win the Champions League next season.

PSG saw their first bid rejected for Hernandez, but still consider themselves favourites to land the Milan star. However, with I Rossoneri slapping a €40m price tag on the Frenchman's head it remains to be seen if PSG will match their valuation.


CM: Georginio Wijnaldum

Wijnaldum, who proved his continued worth for the Netherlands at Euro 2020, joined PSG on a free from Liverpool, adding even more quality to the French side's midfield. Wijnaldum will offer dynamism in the heart of the midfield, where he will likely feature alongside Marco Verratti.

Verratti has been PSG's star in the midfield for a long time and looks nailed on to start along Wijnaldum next season. Chelsea were linked with a move for the talented Frenchman, but it's highly unlikely PSG will let one of their prized assets leave.


AM: Neymar

Neymar put pen to paper on a new deal earlier this summer silencing all rumours about a potential exit from PSG. Pitted alongside Mbappe and Icardi, Neymar will be looking to earn that elusive Champions League crown next season.


RW: Angel Di Maria

Di Maria signed a one-year extension at the club after proving that he can still cut it at the top level. PSG will eventually look to replace the 33-year-old, but for now, he seems to be holding his own in Pochettino's squad.


LW: Kylian Mbappe

Mbappe had a disappointing Euro 2020, and will be looking to bounce back to winning accolades with PSG next season. He is still being linked with an exit from the club, and has yet to sign a new deal, but for now, he still remains an important part of Pochettino's plans.


ST: Mauro Icardi

Icardi had an injury-stricken last season, starting just 11 Ligue 1 games, but his tally of seven goals was enough to persuade PSG into signing him permanently. He will undoubtedly lead the line for the French side next season as they look to reclaim their Ligue 1 crown.
