French champions Paris St Germain have completed the signing of reported Manchester United target Goncalo Guedes from Benfica on a four-and-a-half-year contract.

The 20-year-old Portugal winger had been heavily linked with the Premier League club but on Wednesday flew to Paris to undergo a medical before signing a contract with Unai Emery's team.

Within 24 hours PSG announced Guedes, who has made two appearances for his national side, had agreed a deal that ties him to the Parc des Princes outfit until June 2021.

He told psg.fr: "Playing here with players of a very high standard will enable me to improve.

"PSG always play to win trophies, so my aim is to win as many trophies as possible, and that PSG keep on winning."

The Benavente-born forward hopes to emulate his countryman Pauleta, who scored 109 goals across all competitions in five seasons with PSG.

"I know my compatriot Pauleta was well loved by Paris St Germain fans," added Guedes. "I hope to do as well as he did, and one day be just as much loved as him."
