First real summer recruit after the definitive acquisition of Nuno Mendes, Vitinha signed up until June 2027 with PSG. The Portuguese jersey number has not yet filtered but several solutions could be offered to him.
PSG holds its first summer reinforcement. This Thursday, the capital club formalized the arrival of Vitinha who is committed for the next five years, i.e. until 2027. After several days of negotiations on the terms of financing the transfer, PSG reached an agreement with FC Porto, who revealed the quantified details of the operation. First recruit of the Luis Campos era, the young 22-year-old Portuguese midfielder is opening a new chapter in his career in Paris. His jersey number, however, remains unknown at this time.
Several alternatives possible
At PSG, the most common numbers are already occupied for the vast majority. This season, it is the number 20 which was proudly heat-sealed on the back of the Lusitanian midfielder with Porto. The latter is however occupied by Layvin Kurzawa in Paris. A serious candidate for the start as he comes out of a white season, the Frenchman could be invited to give up his number to the young Portuguese recruit by the management of PSG. A strong process capable of indicating a little more the direction of the exit to one of the most difficult elements to leave on the last transfer window windows.
But with the change in regulations adopted by the Professional Football League (LFP) as of this season, residents of Ligue 1 and Ligue 2 are now free to display a number between 1 and 99, which offers a vast choice in Portuguese. During his professional debut in Porto, the small technical size occupied number 77 which he could well recover in Paris since it is free. Among the last numbers left vacant, the 13 remains also available, like the 26 and the 29. The 11 of Angel Di Maria is also available but this one is more destined to be occupied by an attacker.
It should be noted that the numbering of jerseys will probably change for some who will take numbers left free according to their status or by marketing appeal. With several players announced on departure, other numbers will probably become available in the days and weeks to come. What offer more choice for Vitinha? Unless the Portuguese has already made his choice and it is quickly communicated by PSG.
