PSG confirm Abdou Diallo signing from Borussia Dortmund

French giants Paris Saint-Germain have this afternoon confirmed the signing of Borussia Dortmund star Abdou Diallo.

Brief Dortmund stint

Diallo, a versatile centre-half who can also play at left-back, only made the move to Dortmund last summer from fellow Bundesliga outfit Mainz, for a hefty 28 million Euro fee.

The technically-gifted Frenchman subsequently went on to play a key role at the Signal Iduna Park last season, starting in 27 of Dortmund’s 34 league outings, as Lucien Favre’s men were pipped to the title by fierce rivals Bayern Munich.

The 2018/19 campaign, though, will stand as Diallo’s solitary one in Dortmund’s colours.

PSG switch

As confirmed across social media a short time ago, the 23-year-old has made a return to his home country, with PSG:

Diallo has put pen-to-paper on a 5-year deal with the Ligue 1 champions.

Though there has been no official confirmation of the fee involved, widespread reports suggest that PSG splashed out 32 million Euro on their latest addition’s signature.

‘A great honour’

Speaking on the back of his move being made official a short time ago, Diallo explained:

‘It is a great honour to be involved with such a prestigious club as Paris Saint-Germain. I have always said that the Parisian project was very attractive. Joining the capital club today is another important step in my career. I am committed to giving my all for my new club and look forward to bringing my qualities and desire to this team renowned for its high quality and high ambitions.’
