Manchester City fans have been reacting to a post on Twitter which relays a report that claims the club is showing an interest in 16-year-old centre back El Chadaille Bitshiabu from PSG.
Bitshiabu made his PSG debut last year at the age of 16 and was even named in the squad for their Champions League clash with Club Brugge last September.
According to Téléfoot journalist Julien Maynard, Man City are offering a long-term project to PSG and France U18 centre-back, El Chadaille Bitshiabu (16) and would like to sign the player this summer.
En plus du Bayern Munich et de Salzbourg, Arsenal et Manchester City proposent un projet sur le long terme à El Chadaille Bitshiabu. Les deux clubs de Premier League aimeraient recruter le jeune défenseur cet été, mais le PSG ferme la porte à double tour. #Mercato

The tweet from journalist Julien Maynard also lists Salzburg, Bayern Munich, and Arsenal as interested parties.
Maynard, however, doesn’t provide an insight into the details of the ‘long-term project’ the English club are ready to offer the youngster. Despite the Etihad club’s interest, PSG are ‘closing the door’ on Bitshiabu’s potential exit.
The report was shared on Twitter by City Xtra and it attracted plenty of attention from the club’s supporters.
“Bayern are also interested in him, I hope he chooses us over them”
“I know Salzburg and Bayern are in pursuit of him. But is he any good?”
“PSG always produce great talent. Sign him.”
“Would be a fantastic signing for us he’s an incredible player. 16yo and already 6’5. Strong, composed, has already made his first team debut in Ligue 1 as well, and he’s not afraid to put his body on the line with tackles and blocks. Definitely be fortunate to get hold of him.”
“He is unreal, sign him up..”
“Never heard of him but W.”
