Spanish defender Juan Bernat has extended his stay at Ligue 1 champions, Paris Saint-Germain. The 28-year-old, who joined Les Parisiens in the summer of 2018 from Bayern Munich, has become a key figure in the French capital.
The left-back has since made 76 appearances for the club, where he has added six goals and laid on ten assists. The Spanish international has also won two Ligue 1 titles, one Coupe de France, one Coupe de la Ligue and one Trophée des Champions during his time in Paris.
The defender was also a key part of the club’s Champions League run last season, before losing out to his former club Bayern Munich in the final.
However, the defender has missed large parts of this season after picking up an anterior cruciate ligament injury in a match against Metz in September. Despite that, the club were eager to tie him down to a new deal.
What Was Said
Speaking to the club’s official website, Bernat said: “I am very happy to have been able to extend my contract with Paris, I have always said that I felt good here.
“I really wanted to continue the adventure with the club, it happened, and I am very happy.
“There is a very beautiful project here, which I am happy to do part. I believe that we can achieve a lot of things together, that’s one of the reasons why I wanted to continue here, and I hope to be able to play for several more years.”
He added: “The championship is very close this year, we are only three points behind the leader, and I hope we can come back.
“I also hope that I can be available for the last matches and help the team. Right now we only have to think about work and winning every game. “
