Kays Ruiz-Atil is a 17-year-old from Barcelona who left La Masia when he was very young, but the French club does not allow him to make the jump despite his requests.
Kays Ruiz-Atil is a 17-year-old who is dazzling in the PSG youth academy. He left La Masia due to the FIFA sanction on Barcelona for contracts with minors from a few years ago to try to succeed at the French club, and now that he is old enough to make the big leap, PSG does not allow it , as Le Parisien explains .
The player, who has the characteristic features of a Barça midfielder (he played there from the age of seven to fifteen), is playing a great role in the youth team, and despite the fact that he has repeatedly asked to be allowed to train with the first template, they have not given the go-ahead. His goal, for the moment, is simply to train with the older players, knowing that he will play with the junior no matter what happens, but the refusal can change his attitude.
He already asked for it in January and was denied it, apparently because Leonardo thought he was not ready to exercise with Thomas Tuchel. After being rejected again, Kays is now exploring other options. His contract ends next year and there are other teams that do offer him the possibility of training with the first team and playing with the subsidiary.
To make matters worse, he recently signed with Alain Migliaccio, the agent of Real Madrid coach Zinedine Zidane. Despite this, he continues to attend important meetings with his parents, who supervise all his movements. The French newspaper assures that he is followed by several clubs such as Barça, that he does not want to live another ‘Kubo case’, but that the one who seems to be more serious about him is Chelsea.
Meanwhile, aware that the time is not yet, but knowing that it will come, PSG wants to renew the young footballer, who has a salary comparable to that of a good player in Ligue 2, for four years. However, that salary would have been eroded by the lack of goals achieved, and even a renewal clause would have been deactivated for one more year last summer.
Not to mention that his jump to PSG caused the club to be investigated. It seems that the future of Kays Ruiz-Atil is far from the French capital.
