The Kylian Mbappé file is one of the very hot spots of PSG at the moment. Discussions are bitter between the Parisian management and the French international about his contract extension and to compensate for the possibility of a departure in the summer transfer window 2021, Leonardo and Nasser al-Khelaïfi are working on a very big blow.
Anticipate the departure of Kylian Mbappé
The future of Kylian Mbappé at PSG is on hold. The player, who will be 22 in a month, is in the midst of negotiations with the Parisian management who wants to extend the contract of his prodigy, which ends in June 2022. But the two camps are far from an agreement. Between the player’s salary expectations and wishes that are difficult to honor, an agreement has not yet been found. Without agreement, a departure of Kylian Mbappé seems inevitable in the next summer transfer window. PSG will never take the risk of seeing its star go free after recruiting her 145 million euros excluding bonus. And the sports management, Leonardo in the lead, anticipates all scenarios, already considering a renowned replacement for Mbappé. By using the money released by the transfer of the Parisian n ° 7, PSG can afford almost anyone and already has a very specific idea in mind.
PSG turn to Atlético de Madrid
The management of PSG would take a strong interest in João Félix, according to information from Spanish journalist Eduardo Inda. Leonardo and Nasser al-Khelaïfi would have agreed to release a large envelope with a view to recruiting the young Portuguese striker, who has just turned 21 years old. João Félix was transferred at a high price to Atlético the Madrid, bought from Benfica against 126 million euros in the 2019 summer transfer window, following the departure of Antoine Griezmann to FC Barcelona. The problem is the release clause for the player, set at 300 million euros by Atleti. Very impacted by the crisis, the Madrid club, however, yielded for a sum of around 200 million euros for João Félix who, after a difficult first season, shows the extent of his talent this year. In ten matches in all competitions, he scored seven goals and delivered two assists. If the transfer fails, PSG could also turn to Vinicius Jr. The Brazilian Real Madrid likes Leonardo a lot and Zinédine Zidane would not take a dim view of his player’s departure … So everything will depend of Kylian Mbappé‘s final decision.
