On transfer deadline day, Paris Saint-Germain agreed to send Pablo Sarabia to Sporting CP on a one-season loan move. The deal between the two sides does not come with a purchase option, as Sarabia is slated to return to PSG next year.

More so, as noted by the Portuguese-based outlet Record, PSG will be covering the full due salary for Sarabia in this campaign. The Spanish playmaker will be earning €3.5 million this season.
This move comes after PSG elected to sign Sporting CP fullback Nuno Mendes on a one-season loan deal that includes an option to buy.
Following Lionel Messi’s arrival at PSG, Sarabia fell down a bit on the team’s forward depth chart. He was on par to earn key playing time minutes this season, but the expectation was for him to continue to be a rotational player with the team.
Sarabia will be looking to help Sporting CP defend its Primeira Liga title this season.
