Paris St Germain Beat Monaco To France’s Next Big Thing, Lucas Digne

Lucas Digne was once wanted by Manchester United.

Lucas Digne was once wanted by Manchester United.

One week after lifting the FIFA U20 World Cup with France, Lucas Digne is celebrating another milestone in his career as he has joined Paris St Germain.

The 19-year-old full back joins from Lille and signs a five-year deal with the current French champions.

Digne rejected Monaco to join PSG in a deal reported to be 12 million euros.

“Lucas Digne, the next big thing in French football and recent U-20 World Cup winner – sought after by the biggest clubs – has chosen Paris Saint-Germain as the club with which he wants to make his impression on Europe,” said Al-Khelaïfi at the player’s presentation to the media on Thursday, according to Ligue1.com. “We’re particularly proud and happy to welcome him to the club.”

Manchester United were previously interested in the defender who has been highly praised for his attacking runs and pinpoint accurate crossing abilities.

Left back Digne will earn 255,000 euros a month, so was understandably happy with his move to the French capital.

He said: “Playing for Paris Saint-Germain with these exceptional players is a childhood dream come true and a huge joy. When you add this to the World Cup win last week, I’m having the most amazing summer ever!”
