Paris Saint-Germain wonderkid Kylian Mbappe, who was brought in from Monaco last year, has claimed that he might not see out his five years of contract at the Parc De Princes. The 19-year-old joined the French heavyweights for a fee of £130.50m which made him the second most expensive player at that time only behind his team-mate Neymar.
The French prodigy had a wonderful season and managed 21 goals and 16 assists in all competitions. It was expected that he will have a good season as he was already used to playing in the Frech League. However, after his recent interview, it is clear that the 19-year-old will look for a new club in few years time.
He said, ”I have a five-year contract and I am happy here. PSG have given me the opportunity to play and develop. Next year, I will be here, but all five years of my contract? I do not know. We will see, that is football.”
“We worked all year towards an objective, so if there is a black mark, it was the Champions League. However, our entire season should not be judged on Europe. Even if everybody assumed we had already won everything domestically, we still had to go and do that.”- he was quoted saying.
If he decides to leave PSG in the next few years or so, we look at three clubs that can go after him.
The German heavyweights have been dominating their domestic league but they seem to have fallen off the pace in European competitions and they will be looking to bring in reinforcements so they can once again be one of the most feared teams in Europe. Another reason why they might probably go for Mbappe is the fact that Arjen Robben and Frank Ribery are touching mid-thirties and they won’t be expected to last long for the Bavarians.
If a player of Mbappe’s calibre will be on the market then one cannot ignore the Los Blancos financial power and club heritage. They will also look to invest heavily in the transfer market as they have been relatively quiet in the last few windows and with Ronaldo is not getting any younger so they can have their future secured if they manage to sign this young French star.
The Blues have had a poor season according to their standards and we might see Roman Abrahomovic break the bank to get few players in the next few transfer windows. They also might lose out on Eden Hazard in the near future and that will make Mbappe a prime candidate to replace the Belgian at the club.
