Chelsea held negotiations with 18-year-old Ligue 1 youngster

Chelsea and Man City are reportedly monitoring the situation of PSG midfielder Kays Ruiz-Atil who has his eyes set on a comeback to Barcelona. U19 France international joined the Parisians back in 2015 from La Masia, as he was eyeing to showcase his credibility in the biggest stages of European football.

Kays had made his debut on the 10th of September last year with Lens and despite the 1-0 loss, he was able to put up an eye-catching display. Ruiz-Atil has been able to grab 7 matches in the ongoing campaign and is unhappy with his current involvement in Les Parisiens’ first-team.

The 18-year-old’s deal with the Parisians will soon expire at the end of the campaign. In spite of an engrossing phase under the previous boss Thomas Tuchel, the midfielder in recent weeks has not been able to gain much of the trust of Mauricio Pochettino, as the player seems to be going through a sluggish period after his return from the injury.

And, this lack of playing time could be the reason for him seeking an exit when his deal runs out. Blues have already set their sights on the French midfielder, as the London giants’ new manager, Tuchel, has been trying to convince the left-winger to join his side.

In spite of starting the venture with his new club in a breathtaking manner, Tuchel is not avoiding the fact that in a period of transition, adding footballers with potential could enhance their prospects for the upcoming campaigns. Meanwhile, Man City’s arrival in the scenario could spice up the affair, as the league leaders are raring to bolster up their attacking department in the summer.
