ICC 2016: Paris Saint-Germain’s Fringe Players Smash Inter Milan In Eugene

EUGENE, OR - JULY 24: Loris Zonta of FC Internazionale (L) and Javier Pastore of PSG compete during the International Champions Cup 2016 match between FC Internazionale and Paris Saint-Germain at Autzen Stadium on July 24, 2016 in Eugene, Oregon.

A Serge Aurier brace in the 14th and 87th minutes combined with a 61st minute goal from Layvin Kurzawa was enough for Unai Emery’s Paris Saint-Germain to defeat Roberto Mancini’s Inter Milan 3-1 at Autzen Stadium in Eugene, Ore. Stevan Jovetic scored on a penalty in the third minute of first half injury time, but it was otherwise a clinic for PSG, who will be facing a sterner test from the defending UEFA Champions League winners, Real Madrid, without Cristiano Ronaldo, at Ohio Stadium in Columbus Ohio on July 27.

Meanwhile, as PSG prepare for its crunch time match with the Champions of Europe, Emery talked down rumors that Blaise Matuidi may be on his way out of the club and heading to Manchester United.

“Matuidi is a fantastic footballer and he belongs to PSG,” Emery said. “We’re waiting for him. He is a great footballer and logically I don’t want to dispense with great footballers. We’ve spoken about how there are a lot of midfielders and that there could be a situation in a given moment that the player could leave, but of course, I as coach am behind him. The circumstances could change that, but in principle, it’s not what I want.”

Also, Edinson Cavani is being pursued by Chelsea but with days left until the transfer window closes, there is no guarantee that Cavani will be departing Les Parisiens. As cover, there has been talk by the club that Robin van Persie would fill in for Cavani in the event that the Uruguayan international departs PSG this week.
