Three Team Race

Three of Europe’s biggest sides are set to battle it out to capture the signature of the defensive midfielder as Romano states that all three are “interested in” signing him. Each has their own reason to sign the 21-year-old with the English duo perhaps being most in need.

PSG are assembling one of the best young rosters football has ever seen with names like Warren Zaire-Emery, El Chadaille Bitshiabu, and Nuno Mendes already among their ranks. Adding a highly sought-after midfielder would only bolster their future further.

On the other hand, the Blues are in need of a long-term replacement for the ageing N’Golo Kante while the Red Devils require a secondary option to Casemiro so the Brazilian star can rest more and avoid disciplinary issues with cards.

Quick Success

The French international has had a quick rise to success since coming through the youth system at Toulouse. After becoming a key player for the team in Ligue 2 following their relegation he made the move to the Bundesliga where he has been a consistent presence for Monchengladbach.
