Ancelotti expects three new faces at PSG

Paris Saint-Germain coach Carlo Ancelotti intends to recruit three new players for next season but rejected the notion that the club would embark on a spending spree.

"It won't be a revolution next year, because we have the backbone," the Italian told reporters in the French capital. "Three players, it will be good to improve the team, in all sectors, that's to say a defender, a midfielder and a striker.

"We're not looking for a superstar, but a good player. The important thing is not to have a player with a name, but a player that is good technically and tactically for the team. We are going to search for players with international experience and character," Ancelotti explained.

"Everyone knows that PSG is a serious club," he added. "I think a lot of players will want to come here next year."

Ancelotti also voiced his content with the depth of the 28-strong first-team squad, saying "it's a good number to prepare for competitions" before hinting that three or four players could be heading for the exit.
