PSG are navitaging the 2022/23 season while having endured tons of injuries to the members of their roster. Somehow, they are still in contention to lift a historic 11th Ligue 1 title. This might be the only time one of their defenders does so, as there is an interest from abroad in signing him.
Having lost Presnel Kimpembe for the season, PSG had to throw youngster El Chadaille Bitshiabu to the fire earlier than they would have liked to.
That, however, might be about to do the Parisian club a plethora of good if they can get rid of the player next summer for a good bunch of money after he clearly underperformed at PSG.
Bitshiabu has playing more than he should and his lack of, well, everything showed on a weekly basis and every time he graced a football pitch this season with PSG.
Under contract until June 2024, the youngster (17 years old) has already generated some interest from subpar clubs across Europe including German side Eintracht Frankfurt.
El Chadaille Bitshiabu was named a member of the "elite group" of youngsters that would train with PSG's first team through the season. That said, he's been sitting on the bench for the larger part of the season although injuries helped to make it to the pitch here and there.
The center-back has played 13 matches in all competitions with PSG this campaign. The mistakes he made can be blamed on his absolute youth, though that's not an excuse for him to keep getting minutes at such an elite club as PSG going forward, let alone if the French side wants to lift the Champions League as soon as next season.
Eintracht Frankfurt want to replace Evan Ndicka, who is expected to leave the German club for free this summer after he becomes a free agent. According to information obtained by Santi Aouna of Foot Mercato, "a meeting took place between PSG and Frankfurt to discuss the future of Bitshiabu" in the past few days.
Markus Krosche, the club's sporting director, "is a fan of the player and has reportedly followed him for many years," according to Aouna. That connection will reportedly turn into an official offer for the youngster through next summer as the Bundesliga team will try to sign the center-back for the next season.
Aouna added that at the same time, PSG are "still discussing a contract extension accompanied by a loan" with the young Bitshiabu.
That'd be the preferred move to make by the Parisian club instead of a straight sale of the promising youngster so early in his career.
