Blanc: PSG ready to buy and sell

Paris Saint-Germain coach Laurent Blanc says the club are ready to make further signings and sell several players.

The Ligue 1 champions have already brought the likes of Angel di Maria, Kevin Trapp and Benjamin Stambouli to the Parc des Princes during a busy summer transfer window.

Blanc is thought to be keen on signing Monaco full-back Layvin Kurzawa, while Lucas Digne is expected to move to Serie A side Roma.

But, the coach's comments are sure to spark more speculation regarding the futures of Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Edinson Cavani - who have both been linked with other clubs.

"Until the end of the transfer window there may be some things in terms of recruitment," he told beIN Sports after watching PSG scrape past Montpellier 1-0 on Friday.

"What is certain is that players will arrive at PSG and players will depart PSG."

Blaise Matuidi scored the only goal of the game as PSG maintained their 100 per cent winning start to the season at the Stade de la Mosson.

The champions were far from their best, but Blanc felt there were reasons for the lacklustre performance.

"If one analyses the game, there are things to improve on the technical side," he added. 

"The conditions were difficult and the pitch was not the best. It was very hot. I think that all players have suffered."

Blanc also reiterated that Gregory van der Wiel was not involved due to injury, despite the full-back taking to Twitter earlier on Friday to claim that was not the case.

He said: "For us Van der Wiel is injured. He trained apart [from the team] and did not take part with the group."
