Although PSG are seemingly about to enter a new era in which young, French talents are expected to be the cornerstone of the squad along with Kylian Mbappe, the Parisian club will have to still make some decisions about their current players and whether or not they are good or not enough to keep around.
One of those players, who is already fielding offers from across Europe, is center-back El Chadaille Bitshiabu. The youngster, under contract until June 2024, is valued by PSG and expected to get an offer to extend his current deal, although L'Equipe reported two offers from the player coming from Germany on Friday.
PSG will be able to balance their accounts by letting Lionel Messi go next July. However, that doesn't mean that Paris Saint-Germain won't entertain further sales, including those related to some of their youngest players.
As reported a few days ago, two Bundesliga clubs are very interested in young central defender El Chadaille Bitshiabu as both Eintracht Frankfurt and Borussia Dortmund have already submitted firm transfer offers for the 17-year-old player according to L'Equipe.
The offers are quoted at "more than €15m, bonus included," for a player who is under contract for just one more year.
It is precisely this short-length contractual situation at PSG which pushes the French club to make a decision and to make it quickly before entering the last six months of their CB contract risking losing a young talent for nothing.
This is also the reason under which both German clubs bidding for Bitshiabu are operating: trying to extract the youngster from Paris now that changes are large PSG are willing to sell him with only 12 more months left in his contract, thus lowering the asking price Paris Saint-Germain can demand.
At this moment and while other offers from abroad will probably arrive, PSG do not want to sell Bitshiabu and are already working on an extension of his current contract.
In the event of an exit, it is believed that PSG would favor loaning the player out for a year instead of actually selling his full rights to another club. Bitshiabu has played 13 games this season, his first one with PSG's first-team squad.
