Paris Saint-Germain have signed Porto midfielder Vitinha to a five-year deal, the Ligue 1 champions said on Thursday.

The 22-year-old, PSG’s first signing of the summer, has joined the French side for a fee of around €40 million euros (£34.4 million), local media reported.

Vitinha made 59 appearances in total, scoring four goals for the Portuguese club since his professional debut in 2020.

He helped Porto win the league title last season, as well as two domestic cups, and has also been capped by Portugal three times.

“I have a big challenge ahead of me and I can’t wait to get started,” Vitinha said in an interview on PSG’s official website.

“I will try to play the football I know and help the team achieve their goals as much as possible.”

Porto’s youth product has spent most of his career in his home country but was loaned out to Wolves for a year before the 2020-21 season.

Vitinha played a leading role at his former club last season, having started in 27 league matches.

He made his international debut in March and was one of three Porto players named in the division’s best eleven for the 2021-22 season.

Wolves rejected the option to sign him on a permanent basis last summer, allowing PSG to persuade him over the past few hours and finalize the deal.

At the Parc des Princes, Vitinha will play alongside his Portuguese compatriots Nuno Mendes and Danilo Pereira, with the former contractor signing definitively today.
