Ligue 1 If he doesn’t renew his contract
Kylian Mbappe has been the talk of Europe after his exceptional display for Paris Saint-Germain in their 4-1 win away at Barcelona, yet thoughts have quickly turned to where he might be playing his football next season.
The 22-year-old has a contract at PSG until 2022 and the club have been trying to get him to renew, but should that not occur, he could potentially be on the market this summer.
This would alert a number of clubs, most notably Real Madrid, who have been constantly linked with Mbappe since his departure from Monaco.
In fact, Le Parisien, who are typically very aware of what is going on at the Parc des Princes, have reported that Mbappe‘s new contract will see his salary rise to 30 million euros per year, whether that is at PSG or a new club.
Furthermore, the French newspaper, citing their own sources, reveals that the minimum amount PSG would be prepared to sell Mbappe for is 200 million euros, should he not put pen to paper on a new contract.
As such, given the 2018 World Cup winner’s salary demands and the astronomical transfer fee, this would be difficult for almost any European club to afford right now.
Linked to this, PSG president Nasser Al-Khelaifi will only consider a move for Barcelona star Lionel Messi in the event of Mbappe‘s departure.
