Warren Zaire-Emery is drawing higher-level comparisons each passing day, and one of the latest names to emerge is that of Jude Bellingham. Thanks to his remarkable performances and the faith placed in him by Luis Enrique and Luis Campos, there might be a future in which that vision turns into a reality.

Zaire-Emery, despite being only 17 years old, has had an extraordinary start to the season. The Paris Saint-Germain midfielder has not only been a regular starter in the first five Ligue 1 matches under Luis Enrique but also earned a call-up from Thierry Henry to represent the France Espoirs (U21) team, where he even served as captain during the international break.

This trust shown by Luis Enrique mirrors the unwavering belief of Luis Campos in Zaire-Emery's talent.

Last season, doubts arose among those close to the Montreuil native about his future in the capital, with concerns over his usage under Christophe Galtier.

Reportedly, persons close to the player even inquired with the Portuguese sports director about the interest of PSG in Jude Bellingham, prior to Bellingham's move to Real Madrid. Had PSG made a move for the England international, WZE could have demanded a transfer out of PSG.

However, Campos was resolute. He saw in Zaire-Emery a talent on par with the English sensation Bellingham, according to Le Parisien.

This conviction translated into action, as PSG chose not to sign a high-profile midfielder during the summer transfer window, instead trusting their promising young talent, despite interest from top European clubs in acquiring him.
