PSG Officially Signs Goalkeeper Alexandre Letellier On a One-Year Deal

Paris Saint-Germain has solved one minor team dilemma as the club officially signed goalkeeper Alexandre Letellier on a one-year contract deal, the club announced on its official website.

Letellier was a free agent, so the club signed him without having to post a transfer fee to acquire him. The deal will run just for one year as Letellier will spend this season being the third-string goalkeeper behind starter Keylor Navas and backup Sergio Rico.

Letellier spoke to PSG TV after signing the contract about his joy in returning to the club.

“It’s a great source of pride for me to return to Paris Saint-Germain,” Letellier said. “I am delighted to come back to this club after my time in the academy and I can’t wait to train alongside the club’s other great goalkeepers, such as Keylor Navas and Sergio Rico. I’m looking forward to tackling all the challenges that await us this season.”

Letellier played for PSG’s B team a decade ago but never wound up making an appearance with the first-team. He last played for Ligue 2 side Orleans earlier this year.

PSG’s signing of Letellier is surely one out of the blue but considering the inevitable departure of current goalkeeper Marcin Bulka and UEFA’s mandate on French clubs needing a certain amount of homegrown players within the squad, this deal is one that the board had to make. Unless injuries sideline both Navas and Rico, Letellier will just spend the season on the bench or in the stands watching the premier team in the country play.
