Paris Saint-Germain have intensified their plans to find a replacement for Kylian Mbappe in the summer.

“I have a lot of emotions. I had the chance and the great honour to be a member of the biggest French club, one of the best in the world," Mbappe announced.
"We are going to have good moments for what’s left and believe me that you will remain in my heart forever. Goodbye," he concluded.

It is understood that Real Madrid are in a pole position to sign Mbappe after years of pursuing the France international.

While his move to Santiago Bernabeu will be good news for Real, it is a whole different scenario for PSG.

Losing one of the world's best players will compel the club to enter the market in search of a replacement.

PSG eye Michael Olise to replace Mbappe

Per All Football, PSG are looking in the direction of the Premier League in their search for Mbappe's replacement.

The publication claims that the French giants are preparing a bid to sign Crystal Palace winger Michael Olise to fill the void.

According to talkSPORT, Olise has turned into one of the Premier League's hottest prospects after an incredible season with the Eagles.

The winger was recently the man of the moment after he led Palace to a 4-0 demolition of Manchester United, netting a brace during the Premier League cracker.
