Kylian Mbappe, the attacker for Paris Saint-Germain, is said to desire to quit the club due to attention from Real Madrid.
Mbappe’s contract at PSG expires in the summer of 2022, and the Frenchman is holding out for a fresh challenge.
PSG wants to keep him, but with Real Madrid interested, Mbappe could go this summer, as the Parisians will not want to lose him for nothing.
According to RMC Sport journalist Daniel Riolo, Mbappe no longer wants to stay at PSG and will go for free next year if the club does not find a buyer this summer.
Real Madrid is a possible destination. Regardless of his contract situation, Kylian Mbappe will not be cheap.
Regardless of Mbappe’s contract situation, PSG will want to retrieve as much money as possible from his sale.
If the team cannot persuade him to sign an extension before the transfer window ends, he will have to be sold this summer, but few clubs can afford his exorbitant salaries.
Real Madrid is seeking to sign the Frenchman in order to reignite their attack following a disappointing season.

Real Madrid did not win a trophy last season and will try to remedy that under Carlo Ancelotti in 2021-22. However, if they want to contend for prizes, they will need to freshen things up right away.
Mbappe, 22, would be a good long-term signing, but even a team with Real Madrid's finances may have to sell first in order to get the Frenchman.
