His current club, Chelsea, and PSG both released statements on their official websites last month confirming that a deal - which Goal understands is worth £40 million - had been agreed.
And now the 27-year-old, who is hoping to lead the Selecao to their sixth world title and their first on home soil, has confirmed he will be playing in Ligue 1 for the next five seasons.
“I have just signed a deal with PSG for five years,” he told Globo when asked if he intends to one day play in Brazil’s top flight.
“I left for Europe when I was 18, I skipped a few steps… We’ll see. What we plan today may not be right tomorrow.”
The Selecao’s vice-captain also spoke of the demonstrations seen across the country in protest of public spending for the World Cup.
“As long as the demonstrations happen peacefully, I respect them. I do not want to see violence,” he said.
“I do not like the vision that Europeans have about our country, that Brazil is bad. Brazil has many things to be great.”
