With the next arrival of Vitinha, Luis Campos is already putting his paw on Parisian recruitment

Luis Campos has his first recruit since the formalization of his collaboration with PSG: as announced Friday evening by The Parisian, the Rouge et Bleu signed the very promising Portuguese midfielder Vitinha, whose release clause was set at 30 million euros (and not 40, as announced in other media). The player could pass his medical examination this weekend before the club formalizes the transfer. Still according to our colleagues from ParisianVitniha is expected to commit to PSG until 2027.

Under contract with Porto until 2024, Vitinha established himself as a benchmark for the Dragoes last season under the orders of Sergio Conceição, playing a whopping 47 games (four goals, five assists). A midfielder with a hypertechnical profile, creative but also a hard worker and a good ball scraper, the young player has the perfect profile to strengthen a failing sector at PSG in recent seasons, especially during the last exercise, where Wijnaldum turned out to be a monumental flop. .

Luis Campos paw

This first recruit corresponds perfectly to the work of the new PSG sports adviser, Luis Campos, called by the Parisian leaders to recruit smartly, at a lower cost, and put an end to a policy of bling-bling purchases without any real coherence with the real needs of the club. If Arsenal and Manchester United were on the spot, Vitinha and his agent Jorge Mendes have chosen PSG, where he will find two of his compatriots and colleagues in Seleçao, Danilo and Nuno Mendes.

While waiting to know the identity of the future Parisian coach – even if there is little doubt that Christophe Galtier, Campos’ number 1 choice, will be the lucky one – this first Parisian transfer stamped with the seal of the former Monegasque and Lille sports director tends to prove that the shareholders of PSG have indeed decided to grant him all their confidence and broad sporting prerogatives. This blow should probably call others fairly quickly. It is rumored in Italy that Campos is progressing very well in the Gianluca Scamacca file (23 years old, 16 goals in Serie A last year), the Sassuolo striker also promised a very bright future.
