Zapping World Eleven EXCLUDED: Édouard Mendy’s “Little Brother” interview!
Hugo Ekitike turns all heads. While an agreement has existed for several weeks between Newcastle and Reims up to the 50 M€ bonus included, the young striker gives himself time for reflection.
For good reason, Ekitike has been nurturing the interest of the biggest European clubs like PSG, which has been interested in him for some time now. The capital club must however complete the arrival of Galtier and register several departures before being able to take action. Bayern Munich is also following the situation of Rémois who could strengthen the German champions, in particular in the event of the departure of Robert Lewandowski.
According to L’Équipe, Real Madrid would also look into the profile of Hugo Ekitike. After Eduardo Camavinga last year and Aurélien Tchouaméni, Madrid could snatch another of their nuggets from Ligue 1. The European champion would not have made an offer to Reims but would have contacted the player’s entourage and his agent would have even traveled to Madrid to meet the Merengue board in recent days. Newcastle are still favorites in the race to sign the player, with a more than attractive offer financially but the case is far from having given its verdict.
