PSG have signed Spanish goalkeeper Arnau Tenas from Barcelona to a three-year deal starting this season. The goalie will spend the next three campaigs in France with a deal running through June 2026, as announced by PSG in their official website on Sunday, July 30.
Tenas, still only 22 years old, hails from Vic in the province of Barcelona, Spain, and first made waves in the football world when he joined FC Barcelona's youth academy back in 2010.
His rise within the club's ranks saw him emerge as a key player for Barcelona's reserves, even taking the armband as the captain of the side in the previous season. From the 2020-21 season onwards, his performances earned him regular call-ups to the first team of Barcelona.
The young Tenas has showcased his prowess at both international and club levels, with the goalie appearing for Spain's youth teams already.
His skills between the posts made him Spain's go-to goalkeeper during their triumphant UEFA Under-19 EURO campaign in 2019, where they made headlines by defeating France on penalties in the semi-finals.
More recently, Tenas showcased his talent in the 2023 UEFA Under-21 EURO, leading his national side to the final before narrowly losing 1-0 to England in the final game of the tourney a few days ago.
With his remarkable track record and impressive abilities, Tenas is ready to make his mark at PSG, who had been looking for a reserve goalie following the injury suffered by Sergio Rico and the expected departure of Keylor Navas this summer.
Speaking about his move, the young goalie expressed his joy and gratitude, saying, "I'm very happy to be joining this great club and to be part of the PSG goalkeeping family. Some very good keepers have marked the history of Paris Saint-Germain. Of course, I also have a big thought for Sergio Rico."
