Hugo Ekittike (21), whom Paris Saint-Germain recruited with high expectations, is likely to leave for the German Bundesliga. Ekittike longed for a move even when he lowered his weekly salary from Paris Saint-Germain, and eventually reached a verbal agreement with Frankfurt. Detailed negotiations between the teams are expected to begin soon.
The German Sky Sports reporter Florian Flettenberg said on his social networking service (SNS) that Frankfurt and Ekittike have reached a verbal agreement in principle. Ekittike is ready to lower his salary by 4 million euros (approximately 5.8 billion won) for the transfer, adding that Markus Krösche (43, Germany) of Frankfurt is pushing to recruit Ekittike. Detailed negotiations with Paris Saint-Germain are expected to begin soon.월카지노
Paris Saint-Germain, which recruited a large number of new faces last summer, including Gonzalo Hamus (22), Randal Kolo Muani (25), Usman Dembele (26), and Lee Kang-in (22), also focused on sending out resources outside of their power at the same time as recruiting. Many players, including Marco Verratti (31, Al-Araibi), Julian Draxler (30, Al-Ahli), and Neymar (31, Al-Hilal), who were excluded from the team, left for the Middle East stage. Ekittike was also released after being judged out of power, but he remained in the team because he could not find a suitable destination.
Ekittike, who remains at the Paris Saint-Germain, did not show up after replacing him for nine minutes in the match against Lorient, the opener of this season’s Ligue 1 league. He was completely forgotten sitting on the bench until Aug. 27 last year. Paris Saint-Germain and Spanish coach Luis Enrique treat Ekittike as non-existent and want to send him out this winter. Players who have not played for a long time are also hoping for a transfer.
Ekitike, who drew attention from Premier League and Bundesliga clubs during the season, is now close to moving to Frankfurt. Frankfurt hoped to recruit Ekitike last summer, but failed to reach an agreement with the player. Things changed this winter and they reached an agreement with the player first, and if negotiations between the clubs are completed well, they can achieve their goal.
Other teams have sent Ekittiké love calls, but he prefers to go to Frankfurt. French media Telefoot said on Monday that Frankfurt and Wolfsburg are challenging to recruit Ekittiké. Ekittiké prefers to move to Frankfurt and will reach an agreement among all parties involved. Paris Saint-Germain wants 30 million euros.
After going through the Stade de Reims youth system, Ekitike received attention for his age-appropriate play after his debut. With great off-the-ball movement and shooting ability, he made an incredible record by scoring double figures on the League 1 stage in the 2021-22 season as a teenager. At the time, Newcastle offered Ekitike a large amount of money, but he refused the offer to grow and stayed with his team.
Later, he moved to Paris Saint-Germain in the summer of 2022 and joined the Star Corps. However, Ekitike, a rising star, could not compete with world-class players such as Lionel Messi of the Inter Miami Marlins, Kylian Mbappe of the U.S., and Neymar. He lost confidence as he played in the game, and eventually was put on the list shortly after his transfer.
