2016–present: Return to PSG
Following his successful stint in Spain, Areola returned to PSG for the 2016–17 Ligue 1 season. He began the campaign as understudy to German keeper Kevin Trapp, who had signed the season before, and was in PSG’s match-day squad for their 4–1 Trophée des Champions victory over Lyon. He made his first appearance following his return on 13 September in a 1–1 Champions League draw with Arsenal, in what was also his debut in the competition.
Following the match against Arsenal, Areola established himself as PSG’s first-choice goalkeeper and had kept four clean sheets in eight appearances by mid-October. However, he suffered a downturn in form soon after and ultimately relinquished his place to Trapp after a string of matches in December in which he conceded 10 goals from just 11 shots faced.
In April the following year, he was an unused substitute as PSG beat Monaco 4–1 to claim a record fourth straight Coupe de la Ligue title but started in a 1–0 win over Angers which saw PSG lift the Coupe de France title the following month.
The following season, on 29 July 2017, Areola earned his second Trophée des Champions medal when he started in a 2–1 win over Monaco which saw PSG claim their fifth consecutive title.
He continued the season as PSG’s undisputed goalkeeper in the league and Europe, with Trapp favoured in cup competitions, and was a regular feature in the club’s record-breaking progression through the group stages of the Champions League. With Areola in goal, PSG conceded just once in their opening five matches and scored 24 goals, the most ever by a club in the group stages of the competition.
On 31 March 2018, in a repeat of the previous seasons’s final, Areola was an unused substitute as PSG retained the Coupe de la Ligue title with a 3–0 win over Monaco. The following month, on 15 April, he started in goal as PSG again defeated Monaco, who were the reigning league champions, 7–1 to claim the Ligue 1 title.
The club completed a domestic treble on 8 May when they defeated third division side Les Herbiers to lift the Coupe de France trophy for a record fourth consecutive season; though Areola was an unused substitute in the final.

2018 World Cup has Pinoy flavor with France GK Alphonse Areola
ABS-CBN Sports – 5 Jun 2018
At 25 years old, Paris Saint-Germain goalkeeper Alphonse Areola is already a folk hero of sorts, especially to fans of the France U-20 team, but a missed opportunity for Philippine football.
The French keeper, whose parents are both of Filipino descent, was the hero in Les Bleus’ magical run to the title at the U-20 World Cup back in 2013.
Areola made pressure-packed stops in the penalty shootout against Uruguay to help France hoist its first-ever U-20 championship.
As far back as 2011, Dan Palami had already asked the 6’5″ keeper to consider suiting up for the Azkals.
Seven years later, Areola is now a decorated member of the French national youth squad, and is poised to make his mark in the biggest stage of international football.
Areola will be backstopping French shotstoppers like Tottenham’s Hugo Lloris and Steve Mandanda of Olympique Marseille as Les Bleus looks to capture its first World Cup title in 20 years.
