Liverpool and Real Madrid have reportedly been received a boost in their pursuit of Kylian Mbappe with the news that he has no interest in renewing his contract at Paris Saint-Germain.
The 21-year-old’s current contract is due to expire in 2022 and, while the Parisians are eager to extend his stay at the Parc des Princes outfit, they are also considering whether to sell him next summer should they not make further progress with negotiations before that.
French news outlet Le Parisien reports that Mbappe has already decided against signing a fresh contract, leaving Paris Saint-Germain knowing that his price tag is likely to fall the longer the management keep hold of him.
The World Cup winner could allegedly already be available for £91 million next summer transfer market, a price which has increased the interest of Jurgen Klopp’s side and La Liga heavyweights.
Madrid is thought to be Kylian’s preferred destination due to the presence of his idol Zinedine Zidane as a head coach, but the Premier League champions are also in the hunt for his signature.
Los Blancos decided against spending any money during the recent transfer market due to the financial impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, while the Anfield side have also rarely made big-money acquisitions in recent windows.
However, the prospect of bringing Kylian to the club could tempt either to dip into their pockets, with the world-class French forward having scored 94 goals and set up 55 more in 128 matches for Paris Saint-Germain.
