Vitinha, a midfielder from Porto, has joined PSG in a €40 million move.

Paris Saint-Germain confirmed the signing of highly regarded Portugal midfielder Vitor Ferreira “Vitinha” from Porto on Thursday.

PSG used the player’s €40 million release clause to beat off Premier League rivals and sign the 22-year-old.
The Portugal international started 27 league games for Porto last season, helping the Dragoes win the league title.

He earned his international debut in March and was one of three Porto players chosen for the best XI of the 2021-22 season.

Vitinha, a Porto junior product, spent the 2020-21 season on loan with Wolves, where he made 22 appearances across all competitions.

 

Wolves rejected down a permanent deal for Vitinha last summer, and PSG benefited as a result.

He will play with fellow Portugal internationals Nuno Mendes and Danilo Pereira at PSG.

Mendes will join PSG on a permanent basis on July 1 after a good season on loan from Sporting Lisbon.

Vitinha joins a club in transition, being PSG’s first signing following the hiring of Luis Campos as football advisor.

According to ESPN, former Nice manager Christophe Galtier is in position to succeed Mauricio Pochettino as PSG coach.

Vitinha has had a busy week, as he attended the inauguration of a football ground named after him at a school in his birthplace of Santo Tirso, Portugal, on Wednesday.

Vitinha said on Facebook: “A homage like this, at the school where I went, is a big responsibility that motivates me to work hard every day to provide a good example for all of these youngsters. It is a responsibility and an obligation. The dream began here.”
