PSG announce the arrival of Uruguayan midfielder Manuel Ugarte from Sporting. Thi transfer costs PSG €60m.
PSG pay €60m release clause of Ugarte to sign the midfielder, and his salary will be around €3m per year.
Paris Saint-Germain is delighted to welcome Manuel Ugarte to its professional squad from the 2023-2024 season. The Uruguayan midfielder, who will wear the number 4, is linked to the Parisian club until June 30, 2028.
Trained at CA Fénix, one of the clubs in Montevideo, the capital of Uruguay, Manuel Ugarte played his first professional match in December 2016, at only 15 years and 8 months.
For 4 seasons, the young midfielder gained experience, before being transferred to FC Famalicão at the end of 2020.
7 months, 27 games and 1 goal scored against Rio Ave FC are enough to convince Sporting CP to sign one of the most promising ball sweepers in world football.
In August 2021, the native of Montevideo wears the tunic of the Lisbon club, a few weeks before celebrating his first selection in the Uruguay national team, against Bolivia (4-2 victory, September 6, 2021).
Last winter, Manuel Ugarte was among the 26 players selected by coach Diego Alonso to play in the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar. He has 8 caps for the Uruguay national team.
“I am sincerely very happy to be able to reach this great milestone in my career, at such a huge club,” said Manuel Ugarte. “I will give everything for Paris Saint-Germain. “
