In the capital of France, the flag of Uruguay. This because Manuel Ugarte was announced as a new player of Paris Saint-Germainin which the natives of the South American country left their mark, throughout history.

Prior to the Matador, Diego Lugano had been in the capital’s cast, in an ephemeral step between 2011 and 2012. Without consecrations in this period, he barely participated in 21 games, the balance of which was one goal.
This list includes Cristian Rodríguez, who was the second to arrive at PSG, with whom he learned about European football. After his emergence in Peñarol, he spent two years, until 2007, in which he played 50 games and won the 2006 French Cup.
Precisely, in this period, he coincided with Carlos Bueno, one of those in charge of opening this registry. Like Cebolla, the striker made the leap to the Old Continent from Manya, although he only stayed for one campaign, obtaining the domestic tournament.
