As reported by Goal, it now appears Mbappe will not extend his deal with the Parisians.

Given that his deal with the French giants runs out next summer, the Ligue 1 side risk losing him on a free transfer if they do not cash in immediately.

Losing their biggest asset is not on Les Parisien’s agenda and they will sell Mbappe to the highest bidder. However, according to El Larguero, there is a twist.

PSG chief, Nasser Al-Khelaifi is understandably infuriated with the constant flirting between Real Madrid and Mbappe, as has been a constant theme in recent years.

As such, the Spanish publication claims PSG will consider selling their star to any club except the La Liga giants.

PSG prioritise England for Mbappe

Teams like Manchester United, Chelsea, and Liverpool are also said to be paying careful attention to the 24-year-old’s situation and would not hesitate to splash the cash this summer.

PSG will reportedly prioritise offers from England, complicating the situation for the Frenchman.

Mbappe’s heart is said to be set on Madrid - particularly since there is a clear void to fill at the Santiago Bernabeu Stadium after Karim Benzema’s departure for Saudi Arabia.

Los Blancos will have to shell out at least €180 million for the French phenom’s services, and the fight will be far from simple given PSG’s latest stance on his sale.

While a move to Real Madrid will be tough to push through, one cannot help but think of the Spanish club's potential line-up next season with Mbappe, Vinicius Junior, and Rodgryo on the attack.

Kylian Mbappe to join Chelsea?

Earlier Sports Brief reported on a childhood photo of Mbappe in a Chelsea jersey resurfacing on social media, a few hours after news broke that he could leave PSG by next summer.

The French forward is said to have handed in an official letter to his club's chiefs, explaining to them his decision not to trigger the extension clause included in his current contract.

A section of Chelsea fans has since beseeched Mbappe to 'return home' should he choose to leave this summer, with the star among the long list of players the Blues rejected.
