Barcelona, Chelsea, and Manchester City Set to Miss Out On PSG’s Talented Teenager

Edouard Michut isn’t discussed as much as fellow Paris Saint-Germain youngsters Adil Aouchiche or Tanguy Kouassi, but he’s arguably just as talented with potentially a higher ceiling when it comes to his development.

The 17-year-old’s amateur contract runs until 2021 but he has yet to sign a professional deal with PSG despite training with Thomas Tuchel and the first team. Several of Europe’s top teams, including Barcelona, Manchester City, and Chelsea FC have scouted him and expressed interest in the player who has drawn comparisons to Marco Verratti.

Luckily for PSG, Michut reportedly wants to remain in the French capital. According to Le Parisien, the Frenchman and his representatives have been negotiating with the Ligue 1 champions for weeks over a three-year professional contract.

If PSG can hold onto Michut, it will somewhat reverse the recent trend as both Aouchiche and Kouassi have yet to sign a professional contract and could leave this summer.
