Paris Saint-Germain have completed the signing of Benfica hitman Goncalo Ramos on a season-long loan with an obligation to buy.
The 22-year-old center-forward enjoyed a superb breakout season last term at The Eagles, scoring 27 goals in 47 appearances in all competitions for the eventual Portuguese champions.

The fee for the Portuguese international is thought to be a total package worth $87.8m- which includes an initial fee of $71.3m followed by $16.5m in realistically achievable add-ons.
Speaking of his move to the French capital, Ramos said, “PSG are one of the biggest clubs in the world. It’s an immense joy to join”.
PSG president Nasser Al Khelaifi, recently in the news due to his high-profile fall-out with star striker Kylian Mbappe, added, “Gonçalo, a fantastic international player who is young, hungry, and fights for the team. It is these kinds of players who are the future of our great institution.”
Ramos will wear the number nine jersey next season at Paris Saint-Germain previously worn by Argentinian goal-poacher Mauro Icardi.
