The 18-year-old is one of the highly-rated youngsters in the PSG set-up, and the French champions did make an attempt to persuade him to stay put.
Earlier this week, it was reported that PSG Sporting Director Leonardo, Kylian Mbappe and Presnel Kimpembe all tried to convince the teenager to stay at the club, but they failed in their attempt. In fact, Leonardo offered him a wage package of €1.2m per year.
Blow for Leeds and Newcastle
Both Leeds and Newcastle United are looking to bolster their defences this summer, and have earmarked the exciting youngster.
According to a report from 90 Mins, PSG wanted the youngster to sign a contract extension and then loan him out to Leeds who are leading the Championship table with nine games left to play.
Le10 Sport have claimed that Newcastle are planning to bring the 18-year-old defender to St. James’ Park on a free transfer.
However, it seems, the youngster is on his way to Germany instead.
