Official: PSG welcomes their new left-back Nuno Mendes, signed on loan from Sporting Lisbon

The Portuguese left back Nuno Mendes starts a new chapter in his career as he joined PSG training today after signing for them on loan this summer.


Nuno Mendes, the new PSG player is presented by the club on Thursday, 9th September. The Portuguese left-back joined the Ligue 1 side from Sporting Lisbon on loan plus buy option. Despite the player is signed on loan but Paris Saint-Germain will have to pay a €7m loan fee to the Primeira Liga (Portugues League) club, Sporting Lisbon. The loan plus buy option is also included in the Portuguese left-back deal. If Paris Saint-Germain wants to buy the teenager permanently then they will have to pay €40m to get the player (as per Italian football journalist Fabrizio Romano).

However, Paris Saint-Germain signed the teenage Portuguese sensation but they were not the only team who were behind the left-back this summer. Big European clubs like Manchester United, Manchester City also wanted the left-back but unfortunately couldn’t buy him. The Italian football expert, Fabrizio Romano reported via a tweet on Wednesday that Nuno will travel to Paris and will be presented as a PSG player. The Portuguese professional arrived in Paris on Wednesday with his agent and signed the last details of the agreement before the official announcement from the club.

Paris Saint-Germain posted Nuno’s photo on Instagram in which he was been spotted in the training jersey, so it means he also trained for the first time with the club and it is possible that the 19-year-old could make his debut for PSG in their upcoming games.
