“I am very proud to return to France and defend the colours of a club as ambitious as Paris Saint-Germain. The opportunity to continue working with Unai Emery was obviously a major factor in my decision. I have joined Paris to live very strong emotions and with the ambition of winning as many trophies as possible. I am looking forward to this exciting next step in my career.”
Paris Saint-Germain Chairman and CEO, Nasser Al-Khelaifi declared:
“I am very satisfied to see Grzegorz Krychowiak join our club. He has been very successful over the past two seasons with Sevilla FC. Grzegorz represents the values of hard-work and fighting spirit, so important to our Club, our fans and our new coach with whom he wanted to continue playing. I have no doubt he will become an important member of our squad.”
