Liverpool transfer blow: Kylian Mbappe wants to join Real Madrid this summer

Kylian Mbappe is reportedly ready to reject the chance to sign a new contract with Paris Saint-Germain in order to join Real Madrid during this summer’s transfer window.

The 22-year-old has again been in excellent form for PSG during the 2020-21 campaign, scoring 32 times and registering nine assists in 38 appearances in all competitions.

The France international’s contract in Paris is due to expire next June, though, and the attacker will allegedly be sold in the upcoming market unless he pens an extension.

According to Cuatro, Mbappe has decided that he will not be signing a new deal with Mauricio Pochettino’s side as he is determined to force a move to the Spanish capital.

The report claims that Madrid are struggling with the financial issues caused by the coronavirus outbreak, but the Spanish champions do have the funds to sign the World Cup winner this year.

Liverpool have also been strongly linked with the former Monaco youngster, who has netted eight times in eight Champions League appearances during the current season.
