Yuri Berchiche is set to leave Paris Saint-Germain after just one season and is close to joining La Liga outfit Athletic Bilbao, a source with knowledge of the transfer has told ESPN FC.
Berchiche, 28, who scored two goals and provided three more assists from 22 ligue 1 appearances, was signed from the Basque giants' bitter rivals Real Sociedad last summer for €13 million plus a potential additional €3m in bonuses at the insistence of then-coach Unai Emery.
Cristiano Ronaldo scored an exquisite back-heel to rescue a point for Real Madrid in their 1-1 draw against Athletic Bilbao on Wednesday.
Madrid looked to be heading for defeat after Inaki Williams opened the scoring for the visitors after 14 minutes.
But Ronaldo, restored to the starting lineup by head coach Zinedine Zidane, provided a deft flick from Luka Modric's 87th-minute drive to move Real to within three points of second-place Atletico Madrid having played one game more.
