Nene seals PSG move
Nene is delighted to have finally completed his move to Paris Saint-Germain, after penning a three-year contract with the club today. The Brazilian has long been linked with a move to the capital, and he linked up with his new team-mates last night at their pre-season training camp after passing a medical.
PSG and Monaco had already agreed a fee of €5.5m and the final details were thrashed out this morning. "I'm really happy to have signed for Paris," Nene told the club's official website.
"I hope that everything will go well on the pitch now. PSG are a great club. The supporters and the atmosphere at the stadium are incredible. It reminds me of stadiums in Brazil and for a player that's amazing.
"Moreover, just like Paris, I want to have a great campaign and succeed in the Europa League. I will get to know everyone bit by bit, and the understanding will develop naturally."
Nene will become one of the most highly paid players at the club, and much is expected of him after the 28-year-old fired in 14 goals last season on his return from a year's loan deal at Espanyol.
The left-winger moved to Europe in 2003, and spent four years in Spain with with Mallorca, Alaves and Celta Vigo before joining Monaco. There, Nene had an impressive first season but requested a return to La Liga after a fallout with then-coach Ricardo.
Nene becomes PSG's second signing after Mathieu Bodmer.
