AC Milan and RB Leipzig have both made attempts to sign a PSG teenager, a report claims, but it appears their attempts will be in vain.
According to Calciomercato.com, the Rossoneri have long held an interest in 15-year-old centre-back El Chadaille Bitshiabu, who is a France U17 international and stands at 1.96m tall giving him a huge frame for his age.
The arrival of Mauricio Pochettino at PSG appears to be good news for ‘Chad’ – as he likes to be called – because the club are willing to put faith in him for the future. His bursting physicality in comparison to all his opponents has attracted the interest of several European clubs, but he renewed last July until 2023 with the Ligue 1 giants.
With Aouchiche and Kouassi having left on free transfers Leonardo had to move fast, especially because RB Leipzig and Milan moved for him, but the possibility of growing and making it into the first team – as happened to Presnel Kimpembe – convinced him to stay.
At the end of May, the signing of his first professional contract will also arrive, but in the mean time he wears the U19 shirt and trains with Neymar and Mbappé.
