Paris Saint-Germain is reportedly close to having their first summer signing, and it will help strengthen a weak area on the squad, the midfield. Transfer window specialist Fabrizio Romano reports that the capital club is set to sign Vitinha from FC Porto.
According to Romano, the official proposal worth €40-million, which is the release clause, has been accepted after personal terms were agreed to today between the two parties.
However, Le Parisien is reporting that the fee is €30-million, so there’s some conflict there on the figures. Nonetheless, PSG and Porto are preparing paperwork to finalize the deal as clubs were negotiating terms.
Furthermore, Vitinha was a priority of Luis Campos, which is why the discussions for the player didn’t drag out as they have with other players the club chief has in mind to bring in this summer.
The Portuguese midfielder will sign a five-year contract with Paris, and it appears as though the Ligue 1 champions beat out Manchester United, who was reportedly linked to the 22-year-old. Vitinha made 47 appearances for Porto last season, scoring four goals and recording five assists.
