Young Paris Saint Germain Sporting director Luis Campos has banned the players from going out on nights out in the French capital.
Campos took up the position in the summer, having previously worked for both Monaco and Lille in Ligue One.
And although a key part of his role involves recruitment, Campos is playing with discipline in a bid to finally bring the Champions League to the Parc des Princes.
According L’Equipe, via BRAND, has personally visited nightclubs in the city and wants to know if players are spotted in the venues.
PSG sporting director Luis Campos has visited several nightclubs in Paris in recent weeks to understand the establishments the team frequents in their free time, according to L’Équipe.

New manager Christophe Galtier is in favor of the tough ruling, which has been handed down in the hope of curbing off-field issues at the club.
So far, no player has challenged the ban. Of his no-nonsense approach, Campos said: “If there are those who don’t agree, they are free to leave.”
The curfew is not the only heavy-handed measure taken under the new regime.
All players must eat their meals together at the club’s Camp des Loges campus to avoid cliques.
PSG players have been told they must report to training between 8:30 and 8:45 and if they are late without a valid and reasonable explanation, they will be sent home.
“If there are players who leave the frame, they will be allowed to leave,” Galtier said.
“No player will be above the team.”
Galtier, 55, led Lille to the Ligue One title ahead of PSG in 2020/21 and also took charge of Nice last season before replacing Mauricio Pochettino at PSG.
He has already lifted his trophy at the club after they beat Nantes 4-0 in the Trophee des Champions game.
