Paris St-Germain have signed 27-year-old defender Lucas Hernandez from Bayern Munich for a reported £34m.
A 2018 World Cup winner with France, Hernandez won a treble with Bayern in 2019-20 – his first season at the club.
After winning the domestic league and cup double, Hernandez helped Hansi Flick’s team defeat PSG to win the Champions League.
Hernandez, who played 107 times for the Bundesliga champions and scored twice, has signed a five-year deal.
“I’m really excited,” Hernandez said. “I’ve been waiting to join PSG for a long time, and it’s finally happened. It’s a very special day for me and I’m very happy to be here.”
Meanwhile, Newly promoted Premier League side Burnley are closing in on a season-long loan deal for Borussia Dortmund defender Soumaila Coulibaly, with an obligation to buy him for £15m.
Coulibaly, 19, came through the academy at Paris St-Germain before moving in 2021 to Dortmund, for whom he made two first-team appearances last season.
The centre-back is scheduled to have a medical with the Clarets on Monday.
