El Chadaille Bitshiabu has decided that he wants to stay with Paris Saint-Germain, according to RMC Sport.
The 15-year-old will stay on for another season with PSG’s youth teams and then sign his first professional contract once he turns 16. The two clubs can then not only agree to a contract but could look to come to terms with a five-year deal.
The 15-year-old defender received reported interest from clubs such as FC Bayern Munich and Borussia Dortmund. The two clubs recruited Bitshiabu but no serious discussions were held.
Per the report, another German club in RB Leipzig showed much more interest in its recruitment process than the two other Bundesliga clubs. The club is well-known for scouting youth players across Europe but Leipzig’s efforts came up short this time around even after offering Bitshiabu a tour of the team’s facilities.
As the report concludes, Bitshiabu was training with PSG’s U19 side but halted until negotiations were complete. He has now resumed training with the team even though he does not currently have a contract to play for them. But due to his skyrocketing progression within the team academy, the club felt it was best to roll him out with some of the other promising players that it fosters today.
With the recent departures of some of the team’s notable prospects, keeping Bitshiabu should feel like a significant win for the club as it continues to rejuvenate its youth system.
