Midfield star snubs Manchester United, makes £22m switch to PSG

The race for Sevilla defensive midfielder Grzegorz Krychowiak appears to be coming to a close with the Ligue 1 champions coming out on top.

According to Sun Sport, Paris Saint-Germain have won the race for Krychowiak – beating out Premier League giants Manchester United in the process. The Sun reported that PSG submitted a £22 million bid for the 26-year-old Polish star, and Sevilla accepted even though the original release clause was set at £38 million.

PSG hired former Sevilla manager Unai Emery to replace Laurent Blanc this past June. Emery coached Krychowiak during both of the Polish midfielder’s seasons with the club.

In two years with Sevilla, Krychowiak earned La Liga Team of the Year honours and two Europa League Team of the Season honours as the club won the Europa League title in back-to-back seasons.

On the international level Krychowiak has been capped 39 times for Poland and has two goals, both in Euro 2016 qualifying matches.
