Next summer 2024 will see another chapter of the long-running soap opera revolving around the future of Kylian Mbappé and his possible move to Real Madrid. Although the white club insist they will only take part in the bid if Mbappé’s contract with PSG expires on June 30 and is not renewed, new shadows are looming over the merengue horizon.
According to recent reports from L’Équipe newspaper, Liverpool have decided to enter the race for the French striker. This comes after Mohamed Salah’s future was in doubt during the previous transfer window. With Salah’s contract with the Reds set to expire in 2025, Liverpool would be willing to make a significant investment to make Mbappé his successor.
Despite attempts from Liverpool and other Premier League clubs, as well as tempting offers from Saudi Arabia, Mbappé has so far ignored their advances. The player has stuck by his desire to join Real Madrid as a free agent in June 2024 and it seems his only option.
We must not forget the French and their economic power
However, PSG does not give up and tries to persuade Mbappé to extend his contract again. His situation in the Paris team has improved remarkably under Luis Enrique’s leadership, with an outstanding performance in every game. Pressure from Al-Khelaïffi and the financial attractiveness of other offers raise questions as to whether Mbappé will maintain his involvement at Real Madrid.
For their part, Real Madrid benefit from their historical prestige and the possibility of Mbappé coming as a free agent, but Liverpool pose serious competition with their solid financial backing and the need to bolster their attack in order to fight for titles. under the direction of Jurgen Klopp.
