PSG announce big-money signing of Man United-linked Vitinha
Ligue 1 heavyweights Paris Saint-Germain have, on Thursday, announced the club’s first signing of the summer transfer window.
The latest player to have opted to take his talents to France’s capital? Vitinha.
As per a series of posts across the club’s website and social media platforms, one-time Wolves star Vitinha has committed the coming five years of his career to the French champions, courtesy of a contract through the summer of 2027.
This comes after the powers that be at the Parc Des Princes agreed to fork over an alleged €40 million to their counterparts at FC Porto.

Vitinha, who is also understood to have piqued the interest of Manchester United this summer, marks the first signing of the Luis Campos era at PSG.
The arrival of the 22-year-old, though, is expected to represent just the beginning when it comes to another summer of big spending in Paris.
PSG are widely understood to be on the lookout for reinforcements throughout the spine of the first-team setup, eyeing fresh blood in all of central defence, midfield, and up top.
Chief amongst their targets to strengthen the club’s backline comes Inter Milan standout Milan Skriniar, inching towards a potential €60 million Parc des Princes switch.
In the middle of the park, meanwhile, Renato Sanches is expected to follow the aforementioned Campos from LOSC Lille to the capital.
And last up comes Sassuolo hitman Gianluca Scamacca, amid the assumption that another member of the star-studded attacking ranks at PSG could be set to follow Angel Di Maria out the exit door.
Gianluca Scamacca (23) is edging closer to a move to PSG, according to @DiMarzio.
As revealed by sources contacted by GFFN, the Italian international striker has already agreed terms with the Ligue 1 champions. https://t.co/x56TZQTpRr
