PSG permanently deletes the player. There was no idea for it
Paris Saint-Germain does not have any hopes for 21-year-old Hugo Ekitiké, on whom the board has put a permanent cross. The young striker waits until January – Footmercato.com reports.
Ekitiké is a character that seemed to fit perfectly into the new version of the Parisian project. As part of the new transfer policy, the club from Parc des Princes focused largely on young players, preferably from France.
The 21-year-old had a successful campaign with his home team, Stade de Reims, before moving to the capital. He finished the 2021/2022 season with eleven goals and five assists.
Initially, Ekitiké had opportunities at Paris Saint-Germain, but he mainly functioned as a substitute. With Lionel Messi, Kylian Mbappé and Neymar up front, it was certain that it would be difficult for him to break into the starting lineup.
In the summer, the national champions invested a fortune again to restart the failing project.
Ekitiké permanently became a PSG player as part of the contract with Stade de Reims on July 1. The team from Paris planned to sell him immediately and then include Randal Kolo Muani in the big deal. The unwanted striker rejected all offers, which infuriated the club.
There was speculation that perhaps the arrival of Luis Enrique would change the fate of the 21-year-old. However, this will not be the case, as we now know.
As reported by Footmercato.com, Ekitiké no longer has any relationship with the management. A red-blooded cross was placed on it, which cannot be erased. The player with Cameroonian roots handles this situation perfectly: he shows up on time for training and works with a personal trainer to compensate for the lack of minutes on the pitch.
The Frenchman is waiting impatiently for the January transfer window, dreaming of a move to the Premier League. An undisclosed English club is reportedly ready to make an offer for a player for whom Paris has run out of ideas.
Ekitiké recorded 33 appearances for Les Rouge-et-Bleu, four goals and an assist. It is doubtful that these numbers will change significantly in the coming months.
