PSG sign ex-Chelsea star, Lassana Diarra

Paris Saint-Germain on Tuesday completed the signing of former Real Madrid and Chelsea midfielder, Lassana Diarra.

Diarra, 32, who has signed a deal until June 2019, has been brought in as cover for midfieder, Thiago Motta, who is 35-year-old and has recently struggled with injury.

“I am extremely happy to finally be able to join my hometown club,” said Diarra told PSG website.

Diarra, who has won 34 caps for France, was released by United Arab Emirates club Al Jazira at the end of December last year.

“His experience, both abroad and with the France team, will provide our staff with additional options as we enter an exciting second half of the season,” PSG president Nasser Al-Khelaifi said in a statement. AFP
