According to L'Equipe, Paris Saint-Germain manager Christophe Galtier is thinking about benching one of Lionel Messi, Neymar, or Kylian Mbappe in favor of a forward who is more willing to press and maintain shape.
Despite his team's success using the 3-4-3 formation with Messi, Mbappe, and Neymar, MMN, Galtier wants to abandon it.
The Frenchman now believes that the formation's impact has diminished in recent weeks, as evidenced by their Champions League victory on Wednesday over Maccabi Haifa.
In order to gain better control, the newspaper reported that "Christophe Galtier does not rule out the possibility of switching to a 3 man midfield."
Galtier could play with three midfielders in the 3-5-2 formation, which would necessitate the sacrifice of a member of the "MNM," it continued.
Their game against Maccabi Haifa was tough as the Ligue 1 champions were 1-0 down in Israel before eventually finding their way through to win 3-1.
And their manager believes teams have begun to figure his tactics out and is looking for ways to switch things up.
The 56-year-old could soon switch to a four-man defense, which would demand a more defensive mindset from his attacking players.
Mbappe, Neymar and Messi hardly help in defence, and the manager does not want to impose restrictions on the iconic trio.
Galtier could also add an extra central midfielder to aid Vitinha and Marco Verratti, given that his side could easily be overrun in the center of the park.
Neymar is said to be in a frosty relationship with Mbappe and was reportedly put up for sale over the summer and was linked with a move to Chelsea.
But the Brazilian has discovered his feet under Galtier and scored one of the goals in PSG’s comeback win over Maccabi Haifa. Messi put the Ligue 1 side in front and created the second goal for Mbappe, while Neymar scored the third to ensure they secured the three points.
