Kylian Mbappé is keeping his options open amid interest from three Premier League clubs, while José Mourinho’s position at Tottenham is being questioned, according to the latest Paper Talk.
MBAPPE MAKES A FUTURE DECISION
Kylian Mbappé has informed PSG that he will fulfill his contract with them until 2022, according to Sport Diary.
Mbappé is one of the most valued players in the world after showing his talent from an early age, first with Monaco and now with PSG.
The French forward has won the last four Ligue 1 titles and was also a member of the 2018 World Cup winning team.
Mbappé, already the second most expensive player of all time since his move to PSG in 2018, could be on the move to make big money soon.
With his contract with PSG expiring in less than 18 months, there have been rumors that he could leave.
Mbappé is one of Real Madrid’s main goals, but they may not be able to afford it. That has led to speculation that Jurgen Klopp could revive Liverpool’s long-standing interest.
Nevertheless, Sport They claim that Mbappé has made a decision about his future. The forward sees himself at the Parc Des Princes for one more season.
It remains to be seen whether he will sign a contract renewal. In fact, it is claimed that his preference will continue to be to leave at the end of next season.
However, in the immediate future, other clubs appear to lose the 22-year-old.
The report adds that Chelsea and Manchester United are also potential suitors for Mbappé.
Although he prefers Madrid, and that would be the case even if compatriot Zinedine Zidane left, Mbappé is keeping his options open for now.
So while that may be disappointing news for those wanting a transfer in 2021, there is still optimism that a highly successful move could occur the following year.
