PSG fighting to retain El Chadaille Bitshiabu following Dortmund & Bayern approaches

RMC Sport and Foot Mercato report that Ligue 1 champions PSG are fighting to retain the services of 15-year-old central defensive giant El Chadaille Bitshiabu, with Borussia Dortmund, Bayern Munich and the Red Bull Group all circling.

Bitshiabu has begun pre-season with the U19s, despite his incredibly tender age. For several weeks, Sporting Director Leonardo and his assistant Angelo Castellazzi have been negotiating terms over a 1-year youth contract for the teenager which turns into an automatic professional contract when he turns 16.

Standing at 1.96m, Bitshiabu has already received concrete offers from the abovementioned clubs, who are all offering the player the chance to come to Germany this summer, without being able to play him until the 2021/22 owing to FIFA regulations around minors. 

PSG have not given up on this one, having already lost Tanguy Kouassi and Adil Aouchiche this summer – Bitshiabu’s entourage has told RMC that they feel it is 50/50 on whether or not he stays.
