PSG’s first recruit this summer, Vitinha is the player who can change the face of Paris this season.
Leonardo brutally sidelined without even a word of farewell, Luis Campos took control of the PSG transfer window. His first choice was to recruit Vitinha from FC Porto. Except for fans of the Portuguese championship, the midfielder was not yet very well known in France. He will therefore be watched closely during the first official matches. Because PSG still spent 40 million euros to bring him in. Suffice to say that the summer bet is far from being without risk. But Luis Campos is convinced that the midfielder was the missing link in the Parisian team, and that his contribution will be decisive.
Vitinha represents the new PSG

A version of the facts confirmed by Julien Laurens, the journalist for ESPN put Vitinha as the player to follow this season in Ligue 1, and therefore at PSG. ” It is the perfect symbol of the new direction taken by Paris SG. Fewer big names, less bling and a focus on hard work and big potential. The 22-year-old midfielder totally represents that. He was brilliant at Porto last season. He’s not the biggest, but he’s the complete midfielder par excellence. He can defend, attack, score, create, tackle and dribble. Luis Campos could have signed other players in his position, but he took the one who ticked all the boxes”says to the American sports media Julien Laurens, convinced that Paris SG was not mistaken by betting big on Vitinha.

For the moment, even if there is only this tour in Japan to warm up, the Portuguese has accomplished his mission of blending into the collective. Present in the group for the Trophée des Champions against Nantes, the midfielder distinguished himself with an assist for his teammate Nuno Mendes against Osaka. His association with Marco Verratti should allow PSG to have even more technical mastery, and it makes Parisian supporters salivate. He is expected to start against Nantes this Sunday evening in Israel, enough to confirm his quick adaptation. In training, the Portuguese is gaining confidence and is already making great efforts to understand and speak French. He did not hesitate to speak on his arrival to reveal his objective. This one is very simple, it’s “ win it all » with Paris SG.
