Maxen Kapo signs his first professional contract

Paris Saint-Germain is pleased to announce the signing of Maxen Kapo's first professional contract. The 18-year-old French midfielder has signed until 30 June 2022.

Maxen started playing football at the age of 5 at US Malakoff in the Paris suburb of Hauts-de-Seine, where he stayed until the U12s. In 2013, the boy from Quincy-sous-Sénart moved to the Paris Saint-Germain Youth Academy, going on to captain the U17s to the 2017 French Championship as well as the prestigious Alkass International Cup in 2018, organised every year in Doha.

The 2018-2019 season saw Maxen step up to the Rouge et Bleu U19 team under Thiago Motta. Last Sunday he was one of his team's two scorers in the 2-1 victory over Caen that saw the young Parisians move ahead of the Normandy-based club at the top of group A in the national championship. He has also participated in 6 UEFA Youth League matches this season.

The club wishes Maxen a successful professional career with the Rouge et Bleu.
