Barcelona ace completes PSG move

Brazilian left-back Maxwell sealed his €4m move from Barcelona to Paris Saint-Germain on Thursday after signing a three-and-a-half-year contract with the French outfit, and immediately declared he had come to a club with 'the ambition to win titles and grow.'


“I had the motivation to come to a project such as this because this is a club that is willing to grow and wants to win titles,” said the 30-year-old, who spent two-and-a-half years at the Camp Nou following a €4.5m move from Inter Milan in 2009. “I have left many friends at Barcelona and it was a period during which I learned a mountain of things and received a lesson in football.


“The standard at Barca was very high,” he continued. “But I will try to adapt to whatever [Coach] Carlo Ancelotti asks of me as he is a man who has shown he knows how to win trophies. My biggest hope here is to win, learn more, and try to contribute something positive to the squad and be rewarded with more titles.”


Before signing for PSG, Maxwell admitted he had spoken with Barca teammate Eric Abidal, who has extensive experience of Ligue 1 after his time with Monaco, Lille and Lyon, whilst also acknowledging he knows midfielder Nené from their time together with the Brazilian Under-23 side. He also had further praise for Ancelotti.


“It’s always a privilege to work with great coaches,” he commented. “Ancelotti has shown he knows how to win and that was another reason for me coming here. I am very enthusiastic to have arrived at PSG, particularly with a Coach like him at the club.”


Maxwell has struggled to break into the Barcelona side this term, making just four starts, but PSG director of football Leonardo believes he will give the team more offensive options down the left and even revealed he had tried to sign him when he was in charge at Milan.


“He is a 30-year-old who has had a great career and I tried to sign him when I was in Italy. He can bring a lot of things to our team, mainly from an attacking perspective,” he said.
