PSG History – FM20

Although it is one of the youngest clubs in the world, since it was founded in 1970, thanks to amazing investments and takeovers, the club is one of the richest in the world.

They are holding the world record transfer fee in football for Neymar whom they paid $260M.

Qatar Sports Investments has been PSG’s owner since 2011, but PSG has a lot of success in football even before that takeover.

In their whole history, they’ve won a total of 40 trophies. Out of those 40, 22 were won after the Qatar group took over. To say that money didn’t play a major part in their success would be a lie, but that’s what modern football has become. Teams with money attract the best coaches and players.

PSG has a fantastic team in real life, which means in Football Manager 2020 as well.

A mix of experienced players like Thiago Silva, Cavani, and the best wonderkid in the world, Mbappe, is something every football manager in the world wants to have.

In the past few years, PSG’s transfer policy has been quite successful as they managed to bring in some outstanding players on loan, or experienced free agents who can play a significant part.

Although PSG is dominating the French league, their biggest wish is to win the Champions League.

That’s why they brought you, their next manager, to win them that trophy finally.


PSG Club Vision and Five Year Plan

PSG club vision – FM 2020

PSG has been playing a very attacking formation for the past few years. The most commonly used 4-3-3 employs all the attacking power they have in the team.

That’s the reason the board wants you to continue to do the same thing.

Play attacking football and sign high-reputation players is the club culture. Basically, continue doing what has been done since 2011.

When it comes to the five-year plan, we’ll just cover the first two years because that is how long your first contract lasts.

In the first season, the board wants you to win the Ligue 1 Conforama, and to reach the Semi-Final of the Champions Cup. Additionally, they want you to work on becoming the most reputable team in Europe and the world.

In the second season, they want you to continue winning the league, but it’s unknown what they want from you in other competitions. From my experience, they’ll want you to reach the final of the Champions Cup or maybe even win it, depending on how much you improve your team.

Marquinhos FM 2020 stats

At the age of 25, Marquinhos is your best DC, together with Thiago Silva, with the same current ability. Thiago Silva is old, and he won’t be there for long, that’s why you have to keep Marquinhos. Luckily, you already have a contract until 2024 with him when you arrive.

  • High teamwork
  • Displays resolute characteristics
  • Relishes big matches
  • Consistent performer
  • A highly reliable player who doesn’t often let opponents get past him

Players To Keep An Eye On For The Future Of PSG


  • Presnel Kimpembe – Age 23 – DC – Potential ability 161
  • Adil Aouchiche – Age 16 – MC – Potential ability 169
  • Thimothée Pembélé – Age 16 – DC – Potential ability 165

Other players are worse than 161 potential ability and aren’t worthwhile mentioning for the ambitions that PSG has.

Keep in mind; you want players who can win the Champions League a couple of times in a few seasons.


PSG FM20 Formation

PSG FM20 recommended formation

PSG plays a 4-3-3 formation in real life that quickly transforms into a 2-3-5 when attacking.

Because of the players at your disposal, you want to copy that into an FM20 formation.

PSG has speedy players, but also outstanding technical players who can keep the ball forever in possession.  That’s why it’s an excellent tactic to either play counter-attacking football or Tiki-Taka to dominate possession.

In either case, play the 4-3-3. I’ll choose the Fluid Counter-Attack tactical style.

This formation is a premade 4-1-4-1 that focuses on counter-attacking.

Because your board wants you to play an attacking style of football, having a cautious mentality doesn’t really suit that. That’s why we’ll show our second formation :

Second PSG 4141 FM20 formation

This formation is also a 4-1-4-1 formation with a DM, but everything is different. You can try out the formation in premade Tiki-Taka formations.

If you want to see a different formation, you can check out the formation our team member NIK has created.

In fact, he created a whole YouTube video on the PSG tactics that you can see here:

He has also created a list of 7 potential players that you can buy for PSG, who will improve your squad.

Although PSG has bought four players in the summer of 2019, you have $94 million at your disposal, and that is enough to buy a few quality players.
