French champions Paris Saint Germain (PSG) have completed the transfer of Spanish defender Juan Bernat from Bavarian giants Bayern Munich.
The 25-year-old leaves the German champions for Paris after penning a three-year deal until 2021.
His transfer is reportedly worth €15 million (£13m/$17m).
The left back won four Bundesliga titles with Bayern after joining the club from Spanish La Liga side Valencia in 2014.
He scored five goals in 113 games for the club.
In his first interview as a PSG player, the Spanish international told the club’s website that: “I am very proud to be joining Paris Saint-Germain.”
“After my debut in Spain and my experience in Germany, I will discover a new country and, above all, a new club who have made a spectacular rise in recent years.
“Paris Saint-Germain are known throughout Europe, with world-class players.”
“I am also looking forward to working under Thomas Tuchel, whose work in Germany was remarkable. I am truly excited to be taking the next step of my career with Paris.”
On his exit, Bayern sporting director Hasan Salihamidzic said: “Juan Bernat has asked us to accept the offer from Paris and to release him from his contract. We have complied with this request and have reached an agreement with PSG in very good talks.”
Juan has always been a model pro and played a big part in the eight titles we’ve won with him. We wish him and his family all the best in Paris.” The former Bayern Munich winger concluded.
