He can also play comfortably in midfield, especially as a defensive midfielder. His game intelligence is far advanced, even at the age of 20 and his tactical awareness will only improve as he gains more experience.

The player has had a breakthrough season this year, playing 48 games for his team in all competitions. He has played as a starter in more than half of those, often coming in as a substitute when required. Lucas helps dictate the game for his team, and it is exactly why he has been so successful. Furthermore, European clubs noticed his talent and became very interested in him.

It is Paris Saint-Germain that have finally gotten their hands on Lucas Beraldo, even though Liverpool were also in advanced talks to get him. According to transfer guru Fabrizio Romano, PSG have got the defender for a low price of just €20 million, a bargain compared to most deals. There will be no other additional fees, and Beraldo will join in this January transfer window.

All parts of the deal have already been sorted, and a medical exam is all that separates the deal from completion. PSG have completely revamped their team to bring in a lot of young players this summer after many veterans left recently.

Beraldo will join compatriot Marquinhos in PSG’s defence, and it is expected that he will pair alongside him, or even replace him in the future. He will feel right at home, with the club’s rich history with Brazilian stars. Other former Brazilian players include Thiago Silva, Neymar Jr, the legendary Ronaldinho, Dani Alves, and David Luiz among many others.

Paris Saint Germain have gotten their hands on a very great player, and Lucas Beraldo will be buzzing to begin his new career soon.
