Paris Saint-Germain agree €37 million deal for young German defender

U21 international Thilo Kehrer made 27 appearances for Schalke in the Bundesliga in the 2017-18 season.

YOUNG GERMAN CENTRE-BACK Thilo Kehrer will join Paris Saint-Germain from Schalke after the two clubs reached an agreement on a deal, the Bundesliga side announced today.

The 21-year-old was part of the Germany outfit which won the U21 European Championships last month and played 27 Bundesliga matches last year.

“The economic dimension, in other words the transfer fee for a player whose contract expires next year, is why we accepted this move,” said Schalke sporting director Christian Heidel.

German daily Bild reported that the fee was €37 million.

PSG kick off their Ligue 1 title defence later today against Caen at the Parc des Princes.

Kehrer will have to fight with Thiago Silva, Presnel Kimpembe and Marquinhos for a place in the French champions’ defence.
