PSG's front office is making significant strides in securing the future of its promising young midfielder, Warren Zaire-Emery, by nearing an agreement for the extension of his contract with Paris Saint-Germain.

As the football world has kept a close eye on the player's development and his relationship with PSG, just in case it gets broken, neither a stall in his development nor a breakup is looming with both parties getting closer to signing a long-term contract extension.

Zaire-Emery, a product of PSG's Academy, has recently recovered from an injury quicker than expected and he's already played in the Ligue 1 a few days ago. He will do so once more in the continental ground tonight against Burussia Dortmund in front of world football.

The wunderkind wasn't expected back, per the initial examinations, until early 2024. However, the positive training sessions and his sudden comeback were very welcomed by PSG as well as his potential extension with the club.

According to Foot Mercato, PSG and Zaire-Emery have come to a verbal agreement on a long-term extension that is only pending an official announcement.

However, due to Zaire-Emery's age and the youngster not turning 18 until next March, he's legally banned from signing a five-year contract similar to the one offered by PSG.

Adding to that report, journalist Fabrice Hawkins has provided a little more cautious leak, saying that while PSG is leading the discussions for the extension and both parties will probably end up agreeing to something, no formal agreement has been reached yet.
