PSG signs defender Bernat and striker Choupo-Moting
PARIS (AP) — Paris Saint-Germain left it late to make two signings before the French league's transfer window shut on Friday — and also released a batch of players.
The French champion bought Spain defender Juan Bernat from Bayern Munich, thus resolving a problem at left back. PSG was without a recognized left back with Layvin Kurzawa injured and Yuri Berchiche sold in July to Spanish side Athletic Bilbao.
PSG signs Spanish defender Yuri Berchiche
PARIS (AP) — Paris Saint-Germain has finalized its first signing of the summer by hiring Spanish left back Yuri Berchiche from Real Sociedad.
PSG said in a statement on Friday that Berchiche is contracted through June 2021.
PSG was looking for a replacement for Maxwell, who retired at the end of the season. Berchiche will be competing with Layvin Kurzawa for a starting spot.
