Ángel Di María was the first domino in the contract extensions that Paris Saint-Germain announced. The next player in line to have his deal extended is left-back Juan Bernat, as the capital announced a four-year deal that will keep the 28-year-old in the French capital until 2025.
The Spain international arrived in 2018 when his former club, FC Bayern Munich, practically gave him away and wrote Bernat off as a lost cause.
However, upon arriving with the French giants and undergoing a rough patch to start his stint, Bernat turned himself into a crucial player. In the past, Bernat has scored timely goals in the UEFA Champions League and usurped Layvin Kurzawa as the starting left-back.
Nonetheless, some wanted to wait and see Bernat play a few fixtures before handing a contract extension as the defender has missed 42 matches due to a cruciate ligament rupture. It seems as though the capital club is confident in the players’ rehabilitation to offer an extension.
