Sissoko: On the move
Paris Saint Germain have completed the signings of Mohamed Sissoko and Salvatore Sirigu and are tipped to finalise a deal for Palermo's Javier Pastore.
The Parisian giants are spending heavily this summer courtesy of their new Qatari investors.
They have already spent big brining in Kevin Gameiro, Milan Bisevac, Blaise Matuidi and Jeremy Menez, and they have now followed that up by bringing in Malian midfield ace Sissoko from Juventus and Italian international keeper Sirigu from Palermo.
26-year-old Sissoko has penned a three-year deal at the Parc Des Princes with Sirigu signing four-year contract.
"For me, it's a huge pleasure to play at PSG," said Sissoko.
"I chose this club because it's a club with a very ambitious project and the people here have told me some very important things."
Sirigu added: "I'm very happy to be here and to be a part of such a team. I'm honoured by the interest shown in me.
"The team is going in a direction that suits me."
Reports in both Italy and France are suggesting that PSG are set to beat Chelsea to the signing of Pastore.
Palermo president Maurizio Zamparini has issued contrasting statements about whether Pastore is bound for either Chelsea or PSG.
"The only thing that is certain is that he is going abroad," Zamparini told Radio Radio.
