PSG sign midfielder Ugarte from Sporting for 60 million euros

Paris St Germain have completed the signing of Manuel Ugarte from Sporting Lisbon for a fee of 60 million euros. The Uruguayan defensive midfielder has agreed to a five-year contract with the French club. This transfer was confirmed by both clubs on Friday.

Ugarte, who began his career at CA Fenix, made his first-team debut at the age of 15. He then moved to Portugal to play for Famalicao before eventually joining Sporting.

The 22-year-old has already represented Uruguay at the World Cup in Qatar and has earned eight caps for his national team.

Expressing his excitement, Ugarte said, “I’m really happy to take this big step in my career at such a great club. I’m going to give my all for Paris Saint-Germain.”

Ugarte becomes PSG’s third signing of the summer, following the acquisitions of Milan Skriniar and Marco Asensio on free transfers from Inter Milan and Real Madrid respectively.

In addition to these signings, PSG also made a managerial change, sacking Christophe Galtier and appointing Luis Enrique, the former Barcelona and Spain coach.

Please note that the conversion rate is $1 = 0.9186 euros.
