OFFICIAL: Goncalo Ramos joins PSG on loan with buyout clause


Paris Saint-Germain announced on Monday the acquisition of Goncalo Ramos, a Portuguese forward coming from Benfica on a loan agreement with an option to secure his permanent transfer after next season is over.

Goncalo Ramos joins PSG for a fee of 65m with €15m attached to that fee in terms of a must-buy clause to be executed following his loan spell's end next June.

A native of Olhao, Portugal, Ramos solidified his place in football through his formative years within Benfica's youth academy. His entry onto the global stage was marked by a memorable debut in July 2020, where he exhibited his prowess by scoring two goals within minutes against Desportivo Aves.

Throughout the 2021/22 season, Ramos solidified his position within the first team, notably contributing in the Champions League already. His consistent production continued as he secured 27 goals in 47 competitive appearances back then. This remarkable trajectory earned him a spot in the Portuguese national team, where he showcased his skills with a goal and an assist on his debut against Nigeria.

Ramos was part of the Portugal squad named to the 2022 World Cup squad for Qatar, where he turned heads with a decisive hat-trick against Switzerland during the Round of 16. As of his move to PSG, he has logged seven caps and four goals for the Portuguese national team.

Expressing his enthusiasm after joining PSG, Ramos told the Parisian PR members, "Joining Paris Saint-Germain is an honor. The club's rich legacy and exceptional roster underscore its prominent stature in global football."

Goncalo Ramos's addition bolsters Paris Saint-Germain's forward lineup and became the ninth signing of PSG this summer. He'll now try to follow the steps of former Portugal and PSG striker Pauleta, who spent time at the club in the early aughts and already welcomed him to Paris.
