Paris Saint-Germain announce signing of Goncalo Ramos

Paris Saint-Germain have officially announced the signing of Benfica striker Goncalo Ramos.

The 22-year-old will join on loan, and PSG are expected to make his transfer permanent next summer.

As reported earlier, Les Parisiens will fork out a fee of €65 million plus €15m in bonuses for Ramos, taking the total package to €80 million.

Ramos saw his stock grow exponentially following his stellar campaign with Benfica last season and his heroics at the 2022 World Cup in Qatar.

Manchester United and Bayern Munich were keeping an eye on his situation, but PSG have struck a deal thanks to their healthy ties with his agent Jorge Mendes.

Ramos accumulated 27 goals and 12 assists across all competitions and was the second-highest scorer in the Portuguese top flight last season (19 goals) behind Porto’s Mehdi Taremi.

The Portuguese youngster joins the growing list of signings at the Parc des Princes this summer, including Marco Asensio, Manuel Ugarte, Lee Kang-in, Lucas Hernandez, Cher Ndour, Milan Skriniar and Arnau Tenas.

PSG will be hoping for Ramos to translate his rich vein of form to Ligue 1 and play a significant role under Luis Enrique for the foreseeable future.


More arrivals are on the offing, with Barcelona’s Ousmane Dembele believed to be the next capture of Les Parisiens.

PSG have a total agreement in place with Barca worth €50m for the French winger.

However, his move to the French capital is being delayed due to the Catalan club’s dispute on the player’s side over the distribution of the fee.

Randal Kolo Muani is also on their wishlist, with PSG continuing their talks with Eintracht Frankfurt over a potential move, having already agreed personal terms with the French forward.

Kylian Mbappe’s exit appears to be looming as he is adamant about not signing a new contract, whereas PSG maintain he will be sold this summer unless he pens an extension.

Neymar could also follow him to the exit door after handing in a transfer request.
