Since the Campos-Galtier duo were inducted into Paris Saint-Germain, the capital club has taken care to pamper its young nuggets. Ismaël Gharbi, Warren Zaire-Emery and El Chadaille Bitshiabu are just a few examples of talents that the Rouge et Bleu quickly locked down to avoid the eternal scenario of the young Parisian being stung by a foreign club. But Paris can’t keep them all either. Last summer, Édouard Michut (6 appearances in Ligue 1) packed his bags to be loaned to Sunderland, a Championship team.
Trying to have a better playing time in the English second division at only 19 years old, Titi’s bet was not easy. Loaned with option to buy from the Black Cats on August 31, 2022, Michut also had a complicated start. Expelled during his first match with the reserve team of Sunderland less than a month after his arrival, the native of Aix-les-Bains had to wait before being able to evolve under his new colors, victim of a sprain from his first days of training. Restored, the Parisian therefore started with the reserve before making his debut with the first team on October 4 between Blackpool. It may seem late, but Tony Mowbray had indicated that he wanted to integrate his summer recruits drop by drop.
Newcastle and Leipzig have their eye on Michut
The midfielder then chained the matches in October… before getting injured again. Result: two months without playing. “It’s a bit of everything – almost a mystery – it’s coming from his groin, but it’s in his thigh, his calf, around the outside of his knee. It’s a leg issue, though, and we’ve had it scanned and re-examined.”, Mowbray said in early December. Not enough to discourage the British coach. “He had minor injuries along the way, Michut had been injured for about a month. He’s been training for the past two weeks and he looks really talented in these sessions. You’re talking about a kid who trained with Mbappé, Messi and Neymar. He played six games for PSG, and you can see he has quality. He has immense talent, but he took hits and hurt himself. We want to give him more playing time.”, added the coach on December 23. And thing promised, thing due.

For his return to competition, Michut had his first tenure on December 29 against Wigan, before chaining two tenures in the last three matches of the Black Cats. Spared by physical glitches, Michut can finally show his qualities. And the next few weeks will be decisive for Sunderland. The English club have an option to buy, but they don’t want to rush. “We should have a better idea of that in the second half of the season. Michut has been frustrated with his lack of playing time in recent months but seemed to embrace the combative nature of the Championship in the 4-1 win at Wigan.wrote the Sunderland Echo end December. But watch out, because the Black Cats will have to beware. Skysports revealed that Newcastle and RB Leipzig are closely watching the performance of the number 25. There is no guarantee that the Magpies and the Germans will take action next summer, but Michut is no longer an unknown in England.
