According to Le Parisien, Paris Saint-Germain could be forced to accept an offer between €120 and 150 million for the services of Kylian Mbappe this summer.
The talks between the Ligue 1 champions and the 22-year-old forward are open, but PSG are apparently getting restless as they seek to bring the matter to a conclusion as soon as possible. They are aware that, should Mbappe leave, they will need time to identify and sign a suitable replacement. Therefore, sporting director Leonardo is trying to put pressure on Mbappe to decide his future quickly, but as he prefers the France international to stay put, he’s doing it in a balanced, diplomatic way so as not to annoy him too much. With just over a year left on his current contract, the cards are in the hands of the player.
It was reported a while back that PSG would want €200m for Mbappe, but having paid around €180m to bring him to the French capital in 2017, they will likely do what it takes to avoid losing him for free next year, and that obviously means lowering the asking price.
In case Mbappe leaves the Parc des Princes this summer, PSG could move for Borussia Dortmund star Erling Haaland, or they might tempt Sergio Aguero to join their ranks when his contract with Manchester City expires.
