Liverpool and Real Madrid will surely be on red alert after reports in France claim Kylian Mbappe has told PSG he’s ready to leave.
Mbappe has been heavily linked with moves to both Liverpool and Real Madrid in recent months, with the latest credible report citing the Reds’ interest coming from within the Times’ newsroom.
We at Empire of the Kop do concede that a move to the Spanish capital does seem more likely for the Frenchman, but L’Equipe’s claim is simply that the 22-year-old won’t sign a new deal.
Mbappe’s current contract runs until next summer and it’s believed Paris Saint-Germain are unwilling to allow their superstar forward to leave the club, even if it means risking losing him for free in 12 months.
Obviously, all the money in the world can’t stop an exit when the player’s deal runs out – and if the Frenchman is willing to play the waiting game, he won’t be restricted by a monster transfer fee next summer.
But that’s just speculation on our part, and Mbappe’s future is still very much up in the air…
