Paris Saint Germain Transfer Reliability Guide

No club within France commands the level of attention from journalists and news tabloids that Paris Saint Germain does.

Their squad is filled with a truckload of playing talent, from the likes of Kylian Mbappe and Brazilian superstar Neymar, to the recently acquired Sergio Ramos who joined on a free transfer from Real Madrid.

With the club’s gradual ascension and consolidation among the top of the European football club hierarchy, their media appeal and popularity has managed to skyrocket as well.

Ultimately, there’s a much greater demand for reliable information on transfers than in the years gone by.

Following on from that important point, let’s take a look at PSG’s most reliable sources for transfer news…

Highlighted changes

Quite a few adjustments have been made to this tier guide since it was first published.

For starters, Ambre Godillon has been promoted all the way to tier 1 from tier 3. She now appears to work for PSG Media as opposed to her former role as a journalist for Yahoo Sport.

Additionally, Benjamin Quarez – from Le Parisien – makes his way to tier 1 after not featuring in the initial tier guide.

His work colleague Adrian Chantegrelet also steps in to tier 1, having previously been in the tier below.

Also Mathieu Faure (Nice Matin) gets a bump up to tier 1.

I would go through the entire list of changes but that would involve writing a massive amount of words, so I’ll simply leave it at that.


Is Mohamed Bouhafsi reliable?

Mr. Bouhafsi is well known for his reporting on the happenings taking place at football clubs within France.

Usually with clubs other than PSG, he can be looked at as tier 2 source at the minimum, and in lots of cases a tier 1 status isn’t out of the question for him.

But with the Parisian side, he’s far from being in the loop when it comes to knowing about the club’s transfer moves.

In fact, he was placed in tier 4 as part of the previous reliability guide but has moved up one level to tier 3 in this update.

So, fans need to be careful when consuming news from Bouhafsi, especially when it comes to the topic of PSG transfer reliability.
