FOOTBALL – PSG Mercato: Succession of Kylian Mbappe, the bad trick of Newcastle
New soccer powerhouse, Newcastle United could plague Kylian Mbappe‘s succession at Paris Saint-Germain this summer.
Newcastle United wants to upset Paris for the post-Mbappe era
Despite calls for his contract extension, Kylian Mbappe has still not renewed his lease with Paris Saint-Germain. The 23-year-old striker is coming to the end of his contract this summer. If his contractual situation remains unchanged, the French world champion could leave PSG freely at the end of the season. Long time pretender of the Parisian striker, Real Madrid is presented as his future destination. While his crack is reluctant to extend, the management of the Parisian club is prospecting on the transfer market. In Ligue 1, Paris is presented as a courtier of Hugo Ekitike (Stade the Reims) and Jonathan David (Lille). Regarding the Lille striker, the capital club will have to deal with competition from the newly rich Newcastle United.
Newcastle in the running for Jonathan David
Calciomercato assures that the new management of the Magpies has checked the name of the Lille striker for next season. Despite the bad season of LOSC, he is one of the few Dogues who gives satisfaction. Author of 16 goals, Jonathan David is the most decisive Lille player this season. His performances do not leave Paris Saint-Germain and Newcastle United indifferent. In addition to these clubs, the Canadian with 27 caps (20 goals) is also courted by AC Milan for the post-Ibrahimovic.
Although under contract until 2025, the 22-year-old striker should leave LOSC this summer. His agent had indicated that this season will be his last in Lille. The northern club hopes to make a huge capital gain if Jonathan David is sold. Recruited in 2020 for 27 million euros, he is the most expensive player in the history of the French champion. According to Transfermarkt, a transfer of David could bring at least 50 million to the northern club.
