Kadidiatou Diani becomes one of the top-paying female players after only 2018 Ballon d’Or winner Ada Hegerberg. Diani signs a new agreement with the club Paris Saint-Germain.
The 25-year-old refused an offer to join Lyon by signing a new agreement guaranteeing her future to PSG, on Monday.
PSG did not only resign Diani but also signed a deal with Nadia Nadim which will make her stay with the team until 2021.
Diani turned down Lyon in re-signing to PSG, which matched PSG’s wage bid of €30,000 (£26,000/$33,000) a month.
However, PSG sports director Leonardo directly called on her to convince her to sign an extension, but Diani’s settlement was grounded on her desire to stay in Paris.
The striker had also been reportedly in negotiations with Jean-Michel Aulas from Lyon. He had his plans to welcome Diani to the club to present in the attack alongside Hegerberg.
With the contract, Diani will now earn an annual salary of €360,000 (£308,000/$393,000) a season at the same amount as French team-mate Amandine Henry.
Diani was a part of two World Cup teams as well as France’s team for Olympics 2016 and Euros 2017.
