“Valencia CF have reached an agreement on Monday with Paris Saint-Germain FC for the definitive transfer of Portuguese international Gonçalo Guedes, who will travel to Valencia on Tuesday to sign his contract as a new Valencia CF player,” the club announced on its official website.
As a loanee from PSG, Guedes played 33 games for Valencia last season, scoring 5 goals and making 11 assists. His permanent move to the Mestalla will be welcomed by fans and coach Marcelino, as the club aims for another top-four finish and a respectable run in the Champions League this season.
