Idrissa Gueye Departs Everton for Paris Saint-Germain.

Published

​Paris Saint-Germain have completed the signing of midfielder Idrissa Gueye from Everton for an undisclosed fee, thought to be around £25m.

PSG had chased Gueye for over a year, but often found Everton unwilling to do business. However, they finally had a bid accepted for the hard-working defensive midfielder, and he has now sealed his switch to Paris.

The club took to their ​official website to confirm the news, and Gueye will now join up with his new teammates ahead of the upcoming Ligue 1 campaign.

There had been doubts over whether this deal would ever go through. Back in January, ​Everton rejected numerous bids from PSG for Gueye, with their final offer at the time believed to have been worth around £21.5m.

Initially, Gueye was determined to force through a move away from Goodison Park, handing in a transfer request as a sign of his frustration. However, Marco Silva managed to win him over and Gueye ultimately went on to win the club’s Player’s Player of the Year Award.

PSG retained their interest in the 29-year-old, and their recent offer was seemingly enough to convince Everton to part ways with Gueye.

In total, Gueye managed 108 appearances for the Toffees after joining from ​Aston Villa in 2016, establishing himself as one of the finest defensive midfielders in the ​Premier League.

He becomes the second high-profile departure from the club after young forward ​Ademola Lookman was sold to RB Leipzig for £22.5m.

Barcelona have appointed Ronald Koeman as their next coach, the club said in a statement on Wednesday, as the Catalans look to rebuild after their 8-2 thrashing by Bayern Munich in the Champions League last week.

Koeman, who has left his role as manager of the Netherlands, has signed a two-year-deal with Barcelona, who sacked Quique Setien on Monday after he presided over the club’s worst defeat ever in European competition.

Koeman, who will be officially presented at the Camp Nou stadium later on Wednesday, is dearly loved at Barca for his role in Johan Cruyff’s hugely successful side known as the ‘Dream Team’ and for scoring the goal that delivered the club’s first ever European Cup in 1992.

The defender later became the club’s assistant coach before embarking on a career as a head coach, managing Dutch sides Ajax Amsterdam, PSV Eindhoven and Feyenoord plus Premier League sides Southampton and Everton and La Liga’s Valencia.

“Barcelona and Ronald Koeman have come to an agreement for him to be the team’s coach until 30 June 2022,” said Barca’s statement.

“A club legend and Barca’s hero at Wembley who gave fans their first European Cup, Koeman is coming back to the Camp Nou. But this time he will be in the dugout to lead the team.”
