Paris Saint-Germain is battling with FC Barcelona regarding an interesting youth player note for the 2023-24 season.
The Parisians now recognize the gold mine within its academy as it witnesses the departure of players like Moussa Diaby and Christopher Nkunku, who were once part of its young talent pool.
Not every player will make it; some must move on to greener pastures. However, PSG must actively witness the top talents and ensure they don’t depart. The capital club has begun this process with Warren Zaïre-Emery and needs to continue.
The X, formerly Twitter, account for Football Talent Scout highlighted the ten youngest players featured in Europe’s top five leagues this season, and there are two PSG talents on the list.
Zaïre-Emery and Ethan Mbappé make the list, and FC Barcelona joins as the only other club with two players, namely Lamine Yamal and Pau Cubarsí.
