Following his stellar performance against Milan in PSG's victory over the Italian side, 17-year-old French midfielder Warren Zaire-Emery keeps getting more and more attention from across Europe.
Despite the buzz, PSG have made it clear that Zaire-Emery is "not on the market," and the young wunderkind himself seems to be determined to continue his journey in Paris for the time being, where contract extension talks are in progress.
Zaire-Emery's remarkable display against AC Milan showcased his full range of abilities, with two assists highlighting his knack for breaking through formidable opponents starting from deep in the midfield area.
WZE has been considered one of Europe's top prospects for a few years now, and currently, Transfermarkt estimates his market value at €50m, making him the most valuable player of his generation.
Representatives of PSG stated unequivocally, "He is an inestimable talent who has no value. Today, he is off the market," when asked about a potential sale of WZE. Zaire-Emery is under contract at PSG through June 2025, and the club has no intentions of parting ways.
Represented by super-agent Jorge Mendes, negotiations for a contract extension have been ongoing for several weeks, reflecting the shared desire of both parties to continue the collaboration.
There's no need to mention that an extension will also be of interest to Mendes, who has a plethora of players under his wing already getting paid by PSG.
While rumors suggest an agreement is nearing, with only a few minor details left to be ironed out, the process is not yet finalized, according to the latest reports.
Considering how great WZE has looked this season, it's reasonable for the negotiations to be dragging a bit as the youngster will be demanding the moon while PSG will try to lowball him as much as they can. No matter what, they are expected to eventually find common ground.
