As announced on PSG’s official website, the French club have signed the Brazil international midfielder from Barca on a contract that runs until June 30, 2023.

This means that Rafinha will now play alongside likes of Neymar, Kylian Mbappe and Angel Di Maria, and will be aiming to win Ligue 1 and the Champions League this season.

As for Leeds, Marcelo Bielsa’s side will hope to push for a top-10 finish in the Premier League table this season.
