Athletic to sign €20m Berchiche

Athletic Club Bilbao will complete the signing of Paris Saint-Germain defender Yuri Berchiche today, according to reports.

The full-back switched Real Sociedad for the French capital last summer in a €15m move but now PSG are keen to balance their books for UEFA Financial Fair Play demands.

ESPN FC journalist Eduardo Fdez-Abascal reports the transfer stands at €20m, including variables, and the defender will pen a four-year deal at San Mames.

Earlier this week, Marca reported the Basque club were close to a deal, pipping interest from Atletico Madrid.

Yuri has netted two goals and provided five assists in 32 appearances for the Parisians since his move from La Real to the Ligue 1 champions last summer.

The defender could become the second former La Real defender to join their Basque rivals following Inigo Martinez’s €32m switch in January.
