Kylian Mbappé’s future with Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) seems increasingly distant, as the French club have made clear their intention to transfer the forward talent this summer should he not renew. After an exorbitant investment in Mbappé since his arrival at the club in 2017, PSG is looking to recover part of that investment before his contract ends in June 2024.
The player has expressed his willingness to fulfill his contract with the club, but this has not stopped PSG’s efforts to find a suitable replacement. The team’s sports management is already working on identifying possible candidates, and according to the French journalist Fabrice Hawkins, one of the favorites to take Mbappé’s place is Ousmane Dembélé, a FC Barcelona player, although he also warns that if Mbappé does not leave, They could also launch for his signing.

Media related to Barça affirm that he will stay
Dembélé’s surroundings have been clear and forceful in their response. The French winger is fully committed to FC Barcelona and has no intention of changing teams. He is satisfied with the role he plays in the team under the management of Xavi Hernández and will not be seduced by offers from PSG.
Dembélé’s position is firm, as he did previously when rejecting an offer from Saudi Al-Nassr. His wish is to continue at Barcelona, especially after having lifted the La Liga title in the 2022/23 season. Although a difficult economic situation could change the situation, at this time, it seems unlikely.
Fabrizio Romano assures that Ousmane Dembélé’s termination clause is 50 million only until July 31, in August his clause rises to 100 million euros, so if PSG wants the Frenchman in their squad, they must realize Hurry as there are only a few days left.
