Le Parisien: Kylian Mbappé unlikely to renew his contract with PSG

21 Oct 2020

Kylian Mbappé’s future looks increasingly further away from Paris. On Friday, AS reported that the 21-year-old striker is already thinking about a move to Real Madrid – who are the big favourites to sign the player. In France, Le Parisien are speculating that Mbappé could leave next summer and place Madrid at the top of the player’s list of preferences although the Spanish club will face competition from LiverpoolJuventus and Barcelona.

Mbappé has shown an interest in joining Real Madrid before and the club has tried to sign him twice. The first time when he was still only 14 years old and on a visit to the Bernabéu and Valdebebas where he got to meet Cristiano; and again in 2017 when he ended up signing for PSG from Monaco. The striker, who remains under contract with the Ligue 1 club until June 2022, has shown no desire to renew his contract and if the situation continues that way, PSG will eventually be obliged to sell him in the summer of 2021 or run the risk of losing him on a free transfer the following year.

Le Parisien estimate that Mbappé could leave for 200 million euros and claim that LiverpoolBarcelona and Juventus are Madrid’s main rivals to secure the player’s signature although the player’s first choice would be a move to the Spanish capital. Jürgen Klopp has never hid his desire to one day coach the French forward and he gets on well with Mbappé, having met up with him and his family in Monaco in 2017. The PSG No.7 views the Premier League as an attractive proposition – and a league which has not been greatly affected by the coronavirus pandemic. English clubs would have no problem matching the 21.6 million euro salary which he currently earns at PSG.
