PSG will reportedly provide stiff competition to Real Madrid in the race to sign 19-year-old French defensive prodigy Isaak Toure from Le Havre.
According to a report by Spanish outlet Defensa Central, Real Madrid will not be alone in the race to sign Isaak Toure in the summer transfer window. The 19-year-old Le Havre defensive prodigy is also the subject of interest from Paris Saint-Germain as his stock continues to rise in Ligue 2.
Isaak Toure has made considerable progress in his budding career since joining Le Havre from CO Cleon in 2014. The teenage wonderkid has been particularly impressive in the ongoing campaign, as he has established a foothold in the Ligue 2 club’s first-team setup and is slowly growing in stature.
The 19-year-old French defensive prodigy has made 14 appearances in Ligue 2 for Les Ciel et Marine. Toure’s progress has not gone unnoticed either, with some of the biggest clubs in Europe, including Real Madrid and Paris Saint-Germain, setting their sights on him. And with the player’s contract running out in a little over a year, he could complete a cut-price transfer in the summer transfer window.
The Merengues are constantly on the lookout for the brightest young prospects in Europe and beyond, with Florentino Perez an advocate for having a long-term core in place to transition from one generation to another seamlessly. That is why several youngsters that are now regulars for Real Madrid joined Los Blancos in the last few years, including Vinicius Jr. and Federico Valverde.
Toure has now emerged as a viable target for Real Madrid, who might need to delve into the market for a centre-back in the summer transfer window, as Victor Chust has popped up on the radar of Manchester City. Meanwhile, Real Madrid will have to fend off stiff competition from PSG in the race to sign the 19-year-old French defensive prodigy.
PSG will likely offload Abdou Diallo in the summer transfer window, with the 25-year-old flattering to deceive during his stint with Les Parisiens. And with former Real Madrid captain Sergio Ramos yet to get going at Parc des Princes, the need to sign a central defender has accentuated for PSG, making Toure a fine long-term prospect.
It looks like PSG and Real Madrid are on a collision course in the pursuit of Isaak Toure. For now, the youngster’s star continues to ascend, and a big move could be on the cards for him heading into the summer transfer window.
