PSG complete €6m signing of Sergio Rico from Sevilla

Paris Saint-Germain have turned the loan spell of Sevilla goalkeeper Sergio Rico into a permanent deal.

The Ligue 1 champions announced they have purchased Rico for €6m after he spent last season on loan at the club.

Rico, 27, has mainly served as a back-up goalkeeper for Keylor Navas at Parc des Princes.

However, when Navas was injured in the Champions League quarter-final against Atalanta, Rico replaced him.

Rico retained his spot for the semi-final against RB Leipzig, keeping a clean sheet in PSG’s 3-0 win.

His quality and reliability have led to the Parisians signing him on a permanent four-year deal.

He is the ninth Spanish player in PSG’s history and first goalkeeper from Spain.

Earlier today, Sevilla announced Rico’s replacement by signing Yassine ‘Bono’ Bounou from Girona after a good loan spell.

Bono’s excellent performances were key in Sevilla winning their sixth Europa League trophy last season.
