Nuno Mendes says he has come to Paris Saint-Germain to write his name in the club’s history books after it was confirmed that they had signed the defender on a permanent basis.

The 19-year-old is set to remain at Parc des Princes through 2026 after a successful loan spell saw the club trigger their €40 million (£34m/$43m) option to acquire the left-back from Sporting CP.

Mendes was an impressive performer as PSG pushed on to reclaim their Ligue 1 crown after losing it the previous season, and speaking after he put pen to paper on a new deal, the teenager stated that his long-term stay would give him a chance to go down as a club great.

Mendes told the club’s official website:

I came here to write my name in Paris Saint-Germain history. It started this year, and I hope to continue the good times for the club, with more league wins, more titles.

This is what I try to do every time I represent the club. Since I was little, I wanted to play for a big club and Paris Saint-Germain is one.

Reflecting on his own personal campaign at Parc des Princes, the Portugal prospect added:

From a personal point of view, I think it was a season of learning. I came here to grow and learn. It was a very good season.
