Official: PSG confirm Kurzawa signing

The 22-year-old has completed his move to the Ligue 1 champions, where he will battle with Maxwell for the left-back position
Paris Saint-Germain have confirmed the signing of defender Layvin Kurzawa from Monaco for a fee believed to be in the region of €22 million.

On Wednesday, PSG boss Laurent Blanc revealed a deal was close for the left-back and he has now put pen to paper on a five-year deal, which ties him to the club until 2022.

The 22-year-old shone last season as Monaco reached the quarter-finals of the Champions League, prompting reports of interest from Premier League sides Chelsea and Manchester City.

PSG have ultimately won the battle for his signature, though, and he will now battle it out with Maxwell for a place on the left side of their back four.

Monaco responded to his departure by confirming the signing of Fabio Coentrao from Real Madrid on Wednesday.
