PSG finalise Sarabia signing
- Pablo Sarabia has joined Paris Saint-Germain on a five-year deal after starring for Sevilla in LaLiga last season.
Paris Saint-Germain have completed the signing of Pablo Sarabia from Sevilla on a five-year deal.
The Ligue 1 champions triggered the reported €18million release clause in the 27-year-old's contract earlier this week and he officially became a PSG player on Friday.
Sarabia is coming off the back of an impressive campaign with Sevilla that saw him score 12 goals and assist a further 13 in LaLiga.
He is reported to have turned down the offer of a new contract at the Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan, leading to speculation over his future.
