Kylian Mbappe has been tipped to win the Ballon d’Or one day and it’s easy to see why.
Since bursting onto the scene as a 17-year-old at AS Monaco, he’s gone on to achieve more before the age of 20 than many players will in their entire careers.
The striker has won nine major trophies in France, including four Ligue 1 titles, while also starring for his country at the 2018 World Cup, winning football’s biggest prize as a teenager.
In that same year, he became the second most expensive player on the planet, swapping Monaco for Paris Saint-Germain in a £163m deal.
With 118 goals in 185 games to date, it’s clear Mbappe will become the greatest in the world when he hits his peak – and that’s a scary thought.
But where will he be playing his football at that time? Well, according to reports, he might not be in Paris.
Per The Times, Mbappe has told PSG he plans to move on at the end of this season to ‘further his career’ away from France.
Real Madrid and Liverpool have long been linked with the striker and given his stock, the Ligue 1 club could easily demand as much as £400m for their star.
But according to L’Equipe, PSG could be forced to let him go for much less. In fact, Mbappe could be available for just £91m next summer.
The French paper claims that once the 21-year-old enters the final year of his contract in 2021, his price could drop to less than £100m.
PSG are desperate for Mbappe to pen an extension that would add £35m onto his transfer value, but if he doesn’t, they could be forced to sell for £91m.
