Inevitable! PSG cough up €80 million to make Goncalo Ramos loan deal permanent as striker signs from Benfica

Paris Saint-Germain have confirmed that they have activated a clause to sign Goncalo Ramos on a permanent basis from Benfica.

WHAT HAPPENED?
PSG initially signed the striker on loan from Benfica in the summer window, with the deal involving an obligation to sign him on a permanent contract. The French champions have confirmed they have activated the clause, agreeing to pay a potential €80 million (£70m/$87m) including add-ons to the Portuguese giants, and have tied him to a contract until 2028.

THE BIGGER PICTURE
Ramos was signed by PSG after a fantastic season at Benfica in which he scored 27 goals in 47 matches in all competitions. Since joining the Ligue 1 side, however, he has managed just two goals in 15 matches - only eight of which he has started.

DID YOU KNOW?
Ramos faces some competition for the number nine role in Luis Enrique's team, with fellow summer signing Randal Kolo Muani also fighting for the striker position. Kolo Muani, who joined from Eintracht Frankfurt, has fired in just three goals in 11 games.

WHAT NEXT FOR RAMOS?
The Portuguese striker will hope to repay PSG's faith in him by adding to his goal tally when they take on Ligue 1 rivals Monaco on Friday. They will then prepare to host Premier League side Newcastle in the Champions League next Tuesday.
