While Hugo Ekitike arrived at Paris Saint-Germain last summer from Stade de Reims in the form of a loan with an option to buy, the 20-year-old striker is not yet unanimous in the capital. Its former president Jean-Pierre Caillot returned to the transfer of the young prodigy on the set of Rothen ignites, this Monday on RMC. “I discussed it again with Luis Campos and I consider that they did not make a mistake by targeting a boy like Ekitike, who has a profile and who will be one day, you will see, a very great player. He will confirm. He is a player who is full of qualities. I don’t feel like I cheated Paris Saint-Germain.” first entrusted the 61-year-old leader.

Jean-Pierre Caillot then backed up his point by recalling that many European teams were interested in Hugo Ekitike during the last summer transfer window. “If it had only been PSG to position themselves on the boy, you would have thought that they had not done a good job. But that’s not the case at all. We had all the big clubs in Europe, the main German, English or Spanish clubs that were interested in this boy. It’s no coincidence though.” explained in particular the manager of the Stade de Reims before concluding on the next deadlines of the Parisian club and the possibilities for his former player to show himself: “I think they also considered that after the World Cup, their three stars (Lionel Messi, Kylian Mbappé and Neymar, editor’s note) might be a little tired and that they would need to breathe . They are attacking a very complicated series which will end with Bayern Munich (in the round of 16 first leg of the Champions League), so they will need Hugo as they will need other players.
