Sevilla attacking midfielder Pablo Sarabia has joined Ligue 1 Champions Paris Saint Germain on a five-year deal the club has confirmed.
In announcing the arrival of the Spanish player, PSG noted on their official twitter handle: “We are delighted to announce Pablo Sarabia, the 27-year-old attacking midfielder from Sevilla FC, has signed a five-year contract with PSG.”
The 27-year-old's future had been in question for several months after a fine season where he scored 12 goals and set up another 13 in LaLiga last term.
The player joined Sevilla for a fee thought to be in the region of €1million from Getafe in 2016 and his move to PSG after the French giants triggered his reported €18million release clause will be considered a huge profit by the Spanish club.
Sevilla had been trying to tie Sarabia down to a new contract for the best part of a year, given his deal was due to expire in 2020 and contained a low release clause.
But after failing to secure an extension, Sevilla is reported to have urged him to engineer a move as soon as possible.
Yet to be capped by Spain's senior side, Sarabia will offer competition out wide and in attacking midfield for PSG, who are hoping to win a third successive Ligue 1 title next term.
