Football – Mercato – PSG
A few days after his arrival as PSG football adviser, Luis Campos has already completed his first transfer. And as expected, it is Vitinha who arrives from FC Porto for 41.5M€. But the arrival of the Portuguese midfielder would surely not be the last of a transfer window which promises to be very hot. To analyse.
It was expected, it’s now official, Vitinha is the first recruit of the era Fields to PSG. ” Paris Saint-Germain are pleased to announce the signing of Portuguese international Vitinha. The FC Porto midfielder has signed a 5-year contract with the capital club “, explains the press release of the PSG. The Portuguese midfielder arrives for €41.5m in Paris and will have the heavy task of strengthening the midfield of the capital club. A sector regularly singled out in recent years.
Vitinha, first shot of the Campos era
After a great season with FC Porto, Vitinha therefore intends to confirm his talent at the PSG. ” It’s a very big challenge that awaits me, and I can’t wait to start it. Ligue 1 is a strong championship, which goes fast and where the teams are strong and solid. I will try to play the football that I know, and help the team as much as possible to achieve its goals. A word for the supporters? They can count on me, I am hardworking, I always give the best of myself, I just want to make them happy and that we all achieve our goals together “, he assured on the official website of the club.

First transfer of a long series
But Vitinha will obviously not be the only transfer of the summer to PSG. As revealed exclusively by le10sport.com, the capital club has drawn up a first offer for Renato Sanches. A proposal of €10 million has been sent to the LOSC to buy out the last year of the Portuguese international’s contract. This dossier is therefore on the right track, as is that of Milan Skriniar. According to the Italian press, the PSG continue to discuss with Inter Milan to complete the transfer of the Slovak central defender, while negotiations with Sassuolo for Gianluca Scamacca are also advanced.
On the departure side it will also move
In other words, several players will land at the PSG which will mechanically lead to departures. With this in mind, several undesirables will be pushed at the start, such as Julian Draxler, Layvin Kurzawa, Ander Herrera, Thilo Kherer, Colin Dagba, Abdou Diallo or Mauro Icardi. But that’s not all. Indeed, in recent days, the hypothesis of a departure of Neymar has gained momentum, as has that of Presnel Kimpembe. Two executives could therefore leave the PSG this summer, while the Spanish press even mentioned the possibility of a transfer of Lionel Messi. In short, summer promises to be hot in Paris.
