The French World Cup winner has reportedly told PSG he wants a move next summer.
Kylian Mbappe has reportedly told PSG that he wants to leave next summer. The 21-year-old has a contract running until 2022 but has sought a transfer request to the Ligue 1 Champions. While Mbappe looks to have no intentions in signing a contract extension, PSG could be forced to sell him next summer before he leaves as a free agent.
It has now put the clubs like Manchester United, Liverpool, Barcelona and Real Madrid on red alert, with the latter one looking the potential suitor. It has been claimed recently that Los Blancos have identified Mbappe as the ideal target for next summer.
Liverpool have also registered their interest in the former Monaco star not long ago, and Mbappe was also effusive on the Reds’ recent success under Jurgen Klopp.
“What Liverpool do at this moment is amazing.”
“They’re like a machine, they’ve found a rhythm and are like we play again, we play again.”
However, Mbappe had previously addressed the speculations, hinting about a possible exit from Parc des Princes.
“It’s a very important moment for me, I’ve come to a turning point in my career. I have discovered a lot here, and I feel it is perhaps the moment to have more responsibility.
“I hope that can maybe be at Paris Saint-Germain, that would be a great pleasure. Or perhaps elsewhere with a new project.”
The decision to leave the French Champions might have come after Mbappe ended up short in the Champions League last month. The UCL title is still missing in his cabinet, having won all the trophies at this young age.
Barcelona could be a potential destination for the French youngster as Ronald Koeman’s project looks interesting and the Catalans would be willing to splash the cash after a dormant transfer window this term.
Man Utd are also understood to be another potential suitor, but his valuation could be a hindrance in signing him.
It has also been reported that Les Parisiens would look to sell Mbappe no less than £300m, having bought him from Monaco for around £165m.
Mbappe would also demand high wages at his new club while his current salary at PSG is £15m per year.
Manchester City have also been linked with Mbappe, and they could afford such an expensive transfer. Pep Guardiola would try to recruit the PSG ace after missing out on Barcelona skipper Lionel Messi.
