The Portuguese midfielder Vítor Ferreira, better known as ‘Vitinha’, has become a new Paris Saint-Germain player this Thursday after signing a five-year contract, according to the French club in a press release.

“Paris Saint-Germain is pleased to announce the signing of Portuguese international Vitinha. The FC Porto midfielder has signed a five-year contract with the capital club,” PSG said around midnight.

The signing has been around 40 million euros, according to the French press, in a bet for the future of the Parisians for a 22-year-old footballer who barely has three caps with the Portugal team.

Trained in the Porto youth academy since he was 11 years old, Vitinha evolved in youth categories before making his debut with the Portuguese first team in January 2020, during a Portuguese Cup quarterfinal against Varzim SC.

Vitinha was loaned out to Wolverhampton of the English Premier League at the start of the 2020-21 season. For his first experience abroad, the midfielder played 22 games with the ‘Lobos’. After returning to Porto, the new PSG player took part in 47 games in all competitions, and won the Championship-Copa de Portugal double with the “Dragoes”.
