Speaking after joining, Gueye said, "I’m immensely proud to sign for Paris Saint-Germain. After focussing on the AFCON with Senegal, I wanted to give a new boost to my club career by joining Paris Saint-Germain, one of the most structured and ambitious sports projects in Europe.
"I’d like to thank the directors, the coach and his staff for the confidence they have shown in me. I will do everything to justify the faith they have shown in me and to integrate into this talented squad. And of course, I can’t wait to take in the amazing atmosphere of the Parc des Princes, which impressed me during my first seasons in France!”
He joins a midfield at Paris Saint-Germain that requires cover after the departures of Lassana Diarra and Adrien Rabiot. The squad, however, has been bolstered by the addition of Ander Herrera. He joined the Parisians on a five-year-deal after his contract expired at Manchester United.
Herrera said he was joining the "greatest club in France" when he signed the contract.
