After Aston Villa this week sparked a hornet’s nest, the Qatari-backed French giants are now competing with Barcelona for the 18-year-services. old’s Steven Gerrard, the manager of the Villians, left Chukwuemeka at home while the team headed to Australia for the first Queensland Champions Cup. That has given the impression that the heavyweights of the Midlands are eager to make a profit off of one of their prized possessions. Moneybags PSG have now also made a beeline for his agent’s door in order to discuss the specifics of any potential transfer.
Carney Chukwuemeka of Aston Villa is one of the Premier League’s most exciting young players.
Barcelona is still in control; they already made their intentions clear when Carney said he wouldn’t extend a deal with just a year left on it. But now that the aspirational French team has entered the game, the young star, who recently helped England’s Under-19 team win the European Championships, must pick a choice. Chukwuemeka, who is more often known by his first name, Carney, has so far rebuffed Villa’s advances and has been involved in a contract standoff for the previous six months. Last season, he received a thorough introduction to life in the Premier League as Gerrard attempted to persuade him that he would have a chance to excel. However, it appears that there are now tensions between the player and the club, and Villa will now be tempted to make a profit. In January, Chukwuemeka has the option to sign a pre-contract deal with any foreign team, which will prevent the former European Champion from receiving a significant salary. They can try to sell the attacking midfielder now, or else they run the danger that he will leave in 11 months and they will only get paid for the player’s growth by his new employers. Learn More
