PSG has finalized the transfer of 20-year-old central defender Lucas Beraldo from Sao Paulo pending the official announcement expected for next week, per football insider Fabrizio Romano.

The deal, valued at a single fee of €20 million, will see the young Brazilian join the French champions without any additional bonus payments.

Beraldo, a left-footed defender who has been a regular starter for Sao Paulo this season had already reached a personal agreement with PSG before both clubs wrapped up the deal between them.

The only step left to be completed in the process is for the wunderkind to undergo a medical examination in Paris next week ahead of the official announcement. No contract information has been leaked as of this writing, although it's expected for the player to have signed a deal through June 2028.

PSG's signing a young talent shouldn't surprise anyone, as it fits the new model implemented by the club starting this season in which they committed to bringing younger players to develop and nurture them into the stars of tomorrow.
