Pablo Sarabia to leave PSG for the Premier League and Wolves
Pablo Sarabia had fallen out of favour at Paris Saint-Germain and will complete a move to Premier League club Wolves.
Spanish international attacker Pablo Sarabia will leave Paris Saint-Germain to join Wolverhampton Wanderers in a deal which is expected to be completed on Saturday. As previously reported by AS, the two clubs have reached an agreement for the transfer of the former Sevilla winger, with the Premier League side’s offer meeting PSG’s valuation of the player. Sarabia has already agreed personal terms, as per Italian journalist Fabrizio Romano.
Romano also confirmed that Wolves, who have also signed Matheus Cunha from Atlético Madrid in the January transfer window, will pay the Parisians a fee of €5 million plus add-ons, which was enough to convince sporting advisor Luis Campos and president Nasser Al Khelaïfi to allow the Spaniard to leave. PSG spent €18 million to sign Sarabia from Sevilla in 2019 but will at least make some money back on him and cut their huge wage bill.
The 31-year-old’s contract at the Parc des Princes was due to come to an end in the summer of 2024. With a year-and-a-half remaining on his deal, the Ligue 1 leaders have agreed to part ways with a player who had not been a part of head coach Christophe Galtier’s plans. After returning last summer from a successful loan spell at Sporting in Portugal, Sarabia initially saw plenty of game time in Paris at the start of the season but has since fallen out of favour.

Speaking ahead of PSG’s league clash against Rennes, Galtier also confirmed the player’s departure: “Pablo is a really good player but he wasn’t happy here. He has the chance to play in the Premier League. It doesn’t make any sense to keep unhappy players.”
The Madrid-born attacker had other offers on the table but the chance to earn Premier League wages, along with the opportunity to link back up with compatriot Julen Lopetegui, proved too good to turn down.
