PSG complete the signing of veteran midfielder

French outfit, PSG have completed the signing of French international, Lassana Diarra on a one-and-a- half year deal. Les Parisiens are in a defensive midfield conundrum as Thiago Motta is currently injured. Manager, Unai Emery has used 21-year- old Argentine midfielder, Giovanni Lo Celso in the anchorman role, but the youngster is struggling to impose himself on the position.

Diarra completed his return to the Ligue 1 by signing for Paris St Germain on Tuesday.
Diarra is a vastly experienced player who has played for the likes of Chelsea, Arsenal and Real Madrid with his best spell coming in the Spanish capital. Diarra has been available on a free transfer ever since leaving Al Jazira in December.

Diarra expressed his delight at signing for Les Rouge et Blues, telling the club’s official website,;I am very happy to have signed for my hometown club, Paris Saint-Germain represents a lot to me and, with the international dimension the club has taken in recent seasons, it is every players dream to play here. I am lucky enough to make this dream come true, to know what it feels like to play at the Parc des Princes wearing the Rouge et Bleu.

I intend to do everything I can, bring all my experience and show all my desire to play, to prove that the club has made the right choice in showing its confidence in me." He added. Diarra, who last featured for France in 2016, could make his PSG debut against Guingamp on Wednesday in the Coupe de France. Diarra is a defensive midfielder known for his intelligence on the ball, ability to stop opposition forays and willingness to launch the ball to forward players in brilliant counter-attacking moves.

He is also known to the role model of Chelsea midfielder, N’Golo Kante which speaks volumes about his ability.
