City and Chelsea’s January Clash Over French & Spanish Youngsters

Pablo InsuaManchester City and Chelsea are at war in a bid to secure the services of Paris Saint-Germain’s teenage striker Jean-Christophe Bahebeck.

The 17-year-old has yet to sign professional forms with the Parisian club and the promise of stardom a big money in the Prem may be too much for him to turn down.

The two clubs are also tracking Deportivo La Coruna’s teenage defender Pablo Insua. The youngster is regarded as one of the best future talents in Spain.

Deportivo president Augusto Cesar Lendoiro said: ‘He is under contract this season and three more, but it is an amateur contract.’

The 19-year-old made his Montenegro debut in August against Northern Ireland and gave a fantastic performance against England at Wembley last month.

At 6ft 1in he could certainly compete with John Terry in the air or give Vicent Kompany something to think about. Watch this space.
