Manchester United add PSG wonderkid to centre-back transfer list

Manchester United are reportedly interested in signing Paris Saint-Germain wonderkid El Chadaille Bitshiabu, with Premier League rivals Liverpool also tracking the 17-year-old defender.

It is a likely scenario that Erik ten Hag will be in the market for a new centre-back, especially if one of Harry Maguire or Victor Lindelof gets sold at the end of the season.

However, a lot will depend on whether the Glazers sell the club before the transfer window opens.

According to Le10 Sport, United are tracking the teenage centre-back after watching him emerge as one of PSG’s most exciting talents this season.

Bitshiabu could be tempted to stay at PSG if he is promised more football. He has made 12 first-team appearances across all competitions this season and will be looking to build on that next term.

A move to United could be tempting for the youngster, with Ten Hag keen to improve his defensive options this summer.

At 17, with so much potential, United could be signing a future starting centre-back who could join and learn from Raphael Varane and Lisandro Martinez in the coming years.

If reports are to be believed, we’ll have to fight off interest from Liverpool to secure Bitshiabu’s signature.
