What about Bernat?
Nuno Mendes thus reinforces a position that has looked like a weak link until then in the Parisian workforce. Since the start of the season, Abdou Diallo has been playing firefighters on the left lane, when Layvin Kurzawa does not seem to fit into Mauricio Pochettino’s plans. Juan Bernat, for his part, remains convalescent to this day, almost a year after his rupture of the cruciate ligaments in his left knee. Note also the formalization of the departure of Pablo Sarabia for Sporting. As part of a one year loan there too.
