  /  autty

Paris Saint-Germain have confirmed Thiago Silva, Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting and Sergio Rico have signed contract extensions until the end of 2019/20.

Paris Saint-Germain's Thiago Silva, Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting and Sergio Rico will all stay at the Ligue 1 club until the end of the season.

PSG crowned French champions after Ligue 1 season halted

French football was halted in March due to the coronavirus pandemic, with Ligue 1 subsequently concluded early at the end of April. Final table positions were decided on a points-per-game basis and thus secured PSG the title.

Domestic cups and Champions League still to be played

But a decision on the two cup competitions, the Coupe de France and Coupe de la Ligue, was delayed in the hope of potentially playing two finals at a later date.

The French Football Federation (FFF) confirmed earlier this month that the two matches will take place on 24 and 31 July, respectively, while UEFA also announced the remaining rounds of the Champions League are to take place in Lisbon the following month.

PSG have now ensured Silva, Choupo-Moting and Rico will be available for all three competitions.

The Parisians had already announced club captain Silva, 35, will be leaving at the end of the 2019-20 campaign, but his extension means he could depart having potentially lifted three more trophies.

Choupo-Moting is also set to leave the club on a free transfer, while Rico had been due to return to parent club Sevilla at the end of June.

PSG face Saint-Étienne and Lyon in cup finals

PSG will face Saint-Étienne in the Coupe de France, before contesting the last ever Coupe de la Ligue final with Lyon.

They are also into the quarter-finals of the Champions League, having eliminated Borussia Dortmund prior to the season's hiatus.
