Paris Saint-Germain have officially announced the signing of young German defender Thilo Kehrer. The 21-year-old had been with Schalke for six years but the rumours regarding PSG’s interest have been growing substantially over the course of the last few weeks, and now it’s official. The French champions are believed to have signed him for a fee of €37 million, making him an extremely expensive commodity given his age.
Kehrer played in the majority of Bundesliga games for Schalke last season and made quite the impression courtesy of his maturity and composure on the ball. For someone so young he clearly has a great footballing mind and has a clear direction of what he wants to accomplish in this game, which is never a bad thing.
Kehrer has been playing for the Germany under-21s over the last year or so, with his next big milestone being a cap for the senior squad.
