Official | Athletic Bilbao sign Yuri from PSG for €24m

Athletic Club Bilbao have today announced the completed signing of Paris Saint-Germain defender Yuri Berchiche.

The full-back has signed a four-year contract at the San Mamés, transferring for an undisclosed fee to the club where he spent two years in his youth development from 2005-2007, believed to be worth €24m.

Berchiche moved to the French capital last summer in a €15m move but the Ligue 1 champions are understood to be keen to balance their books for UEFA Financial Fair Play reasons.

The 28-year-old made 32 appearances at the Parc des Princes last season, mustering five assists and two goals in a campaign that produced three trophies; the domestic title, the national championship and the Coupe de France.
