Kylian Mbappe is potentially playing his final season at Paris Saint-Germain amidst Real Madrid links.
The report comes from Okdiario, a Spanish newspaper, stating that Paris Saint-Germain have already been informed by Kylian Mbappe about his willingness to depart next summer.
The World Cup winner desires a move to Real Madrid and will do his best to make it possible but at the same time, wants to leave PSG after giving his all.
The French international has been linked with a move to Santiago Bernabeu for a very long time, especially after the player revealed his inspiration as then Real Madrid superstar, Cristiano Ronaldo.
Los Blancos have tried their very best to secure the 21-year-old but PSG have been resilient in keeping the youngster at Parc des Princes, even publically revealing their desire to renew his contract by offering a massive pay raise after potentially selling Neymar.
The La Liga champions have not given up, however, as they have crafted an elaborate plan to acquire the superstar, with the first step to be taken by Mbappe himself. The French star will have to initially make the Parisians aware of his desire to leave at the end of 2020-21 season by contacting the PSG’s higher ups.
Mbappe and his father will meet with club’s President, Nasser Al-Khelaifi, to discuss his future as with the player’s contract expiring in 2022, 2021 transfer window will be the last chance for the Qatar Investment group to make any monetary benefits from his departure.
If they do wish to keep him until 2022 in the hopes of potentially making a last attempt towards winning the UEFA Champions League, the French side risk losing one of the greatest talents of the current generation for free.
PSG are known to make their players stay beyond their desire which was evident with players like Marco Verratti, who was not allowed to join Barcelona, or Adrien Rabiot who left the club once his contract expired. Mbappe does not wish to reach a similar position with the French giants, and will work with Real Madrid to make it extremely profitable for the Parisiens.
Though with the ongoing pandemic no club will be able to afford to break the current transfer record of 222 million that PSG paid to acquire Neymar, Mbappe hopes to reach a figure which justifies his transfer. The 21-year-old has also promised to give it his best for this year’s Champions League campaign with the French side as it could potentially be his last attempt with the Parisiens.
