The Parisians sign a new midfielder amid reports of Georginio Wijnaldum’s imminent transfer away from Parc des Princes.

Paris Saint-Germain have completed the signing of Renato Sanches from Lille.

The Golden Boy winner attracted interest from several elite clubs due to his impressive performances last season. However, he has decided to stay in Ligue 1 by joining the Parisians ahead of the new campaign.

The French giants have reportedly agreed to pay €15m to Lille for acquiring Sanches’ services.

The Portuguese star have signed a five-year contract at Parc des Princes, planning to stay at the club until 2027.

Sanches becomes PSG’s fifth signing this summer. After extending Kylian Mbappe on the eve of the current transfer window, PSG have gone on to add Nordi Mukiele, Nuno Mendes, Vitinha, and Hugo Ekitike to their ranks.

The French champions were keen to add Sanches to their squad when he was playing for Bayern Munich in 2019.

However, the Bavarians refused to sell Sanches for PSG’s proposed fee of €5m. The Portugal international then became Lille’s most expensive transfer ever when he joined Lille on a €25m transfer.

Sanches’ arrival will see another highly-rated midfielder join Christophe Galtier’s squad ahead of the next season. PSG are on the verge of selling Georginio Wijnaldum and Idrissa Gueye to Roma and Everton, respectively.
