PSG has been transformed from a middling club to the single dominant force in France as a result of their big-money takeover by the state-run shareholding organization Qatar Sports Investments. They have practically bought their way to success under the watchful eye of club president Nasser Al-Khelaifi. The business tycoon has aided the club in assembling one of the most dazzling star-studded lineups of all time.
PSG has produced a number of illustrious players.
Les Parisiens have added another superstar to their roster with the recent acquisition of Lionel Messi. The Argentine is the second most decorated player in history, with a mind-boggling 37 trophies to his name. However, Dani Alves takes the cake with 43 career titles, making him the footballer with the best trophy record in football and PSG history.
While the majority of the aforementioned players have had successful stints with a variety of clubs, several players have had significant success solely in the French capital. Their recent upturn in fortunes has resulted in a flurry of domestic trophies, refining the careers of several stars. On that note, here are the four players who have won the most trophies with PSG:
Number 4: Adrien Rabiot (20 titles)
Adrien Rabiot, one of the brightest stars to have come through the ranks of PSG’s youth system, was once regarded as the club’s midfield’s future. Rabiot was an absolute gem: tall, strong, and promising talent with good technique and impressive physical qualities.
During his seven-year stint with the senior squad, the French midfielder made 227 appearances for Les Parisiens, winning 20 trophies along the way. His PSG resume includes six Ligue 1 titles, four French Cups, five French League Cups, and five French Super Cups.
“Rabiot? I’ll see him today; he’s recovered from COVID, but I need to see how he’s doing. Arthur improves the team’s quality; he is extremely useful. He needs to get back in shape, and then he’ll gradually increase his playing time until he’s a starter.”
Rabiot was unceremoniously fired from the club in 2019 after multiple disciplinary issues and a contract dispute. After his contract expired, he chose to join Juventus. While the talented 26-year-old midfielder has continued to win silverware in Turin, he has failed to realize his full potential with the Bianconeri over the last two years.
Number 3: Edinson Cavani (22 titles)
Edinson Cavani, PSG’s all-time leading scorer with exactly 200 goals, had to be included on this list. Cavani joined Les Parisiens from Napoli for a fee of €64.5 million in 2013. Because of his invaluable contributions, he will undoubtedly go down in history as one of PSG’s best signings.
Aside from his massive goal total, the Uruguayan forward also won 22 titles with the club. Cavani won six Ligue 1 titles, four French Cups, five French League Cups, and seven French Super Cups during his seven-year tenure at PSG.
Cavani announced his departure from PSG in 2020 after winning every domestic title more than four times. The prolific striker, an absolute legend for the Parisians, is now working wonders with Manchester United at the ripe old age of 34.
Number 2: Marquinhos and Thiago Silva (25 titles)
The two defensive stalwarts of PSG’s most dominant team in the past share second place. Thiago Silva, who is now a Chelsea player, and Marquinhos have both won 25 Ligue 1 titles with the nine-time champions. Marquinhos, who took over as captain from Silva, is a commanding figure at the Parc des Princes.
The former Roma center-half has been with the club for seven years, appearing in 334 games. He has added six Ligue 1 titles, six French Cups, six French League Cups, and seven French Super Cups to his PSG trophy cabinet.
Marquinhos is the current defensive stalwart in Paris, but Silva was his predecessor. Silva, who joined PSG as a seasoned veteran in 2012, won 25 titles in eight years. He has seven Ligue 1 titles, five French Cups, six French League Cups, and seven French Super Cups in his trophy cabinet. Two of the most dependable defenders to ever wear a PSG jersey.
Number 1: Marco Verratti (27 titles)
Marco Verratti, PSG’s current longest-serving player, comes in the first place. The diminutive midfielder is one of the best central midfielders of his generation, with exceptional close ball control and commendable dribbling skills.
Verratti, a product of Pescara’s youth system, joined the Parisians in 2012 and has since achieved legendary status at the Parc des Princes. During his nine-year stay in the French capital, he won 27 titles, making him the PSG player with the most titles.
Verratti currently holds seven Ligue 1 titles, six French Cups, six French League Cups, and eight French Super Cups. With PSG constantly striving to improve on the continental stage, the Italian midfield maestro may soon be able to add a European title to his trophy cabinet.
