Five clubs who can afford Kylian Mbappe after France star issues PSG quit demand

Kylian Mbappe has reportedly told PSG that he intends to leave the French capital at the end of the season, with many now wondering where he could move to.

Mbappe has shone at the Ligue 1 giants having been signed from Monaco in 2018 for around £165m.

The Times report that Mbappe has told his current club he wishes to leave at the end of the season with plenty expected to be interested in his services.

Though funds could be an issue with the 21-year-old not going to come cheaply, believed to currently be earning around €350,000 per week, if not more.

PSG are also expected to demand a large fee with the Ligue 1 giants not wanting to lose their star.

And Daily Star Sport has looked at five clubs that may be able to afford Mbappe come next summer.

Liverpool

The Reds have been regularly linked with a move for Mbappe, especially after they signed a deal with sportswear giants Nike.

Liverpool have been quiet in recent transfer windows, potentially saving up for a big splash next summer.

There may also be funds coming in should they go all out for Mbappe with one of Roberto Firmino, Mohamed Salah, or Sadio Mane surely having to depart to create space in the first-team XI.

Manchester City

There doesn’t seem to be too many players out of reach for City with the Etihad outfit having been interested in Lionel Messi earlier this summer.

They could be back in for the Argentine next year, though may also turn their attentions to Mbappe.

Whatever the price PSG demand, City will be able to afford.

Real Madrid

Former Real Madrid president Roman Calderon has suggested the Bernabeu outfit can’t afford Mbappe, but they would probably make it work.

They have been regularly linked with a move for the flying French winger and are likely to do everything in their powers to try to secure a move.

It may help that Mbappe is believed to be keen to head to the Spanish capital, potentially cutting costs.

Juventus

Juventus had the financial power to bring in Cristiano Ronaldo a couple of years ago and could have the same to sign Mbappe.

There has been talk that Ronaldo may depart Turin next summer and that would certainly free up the cash.

But with Juve desperate to get their hands back on the Champions League, they may do all they can to secure Mbappe’s services.

Manchester United

It seems that United have the money to spend but that Red Devils chiefs just don’t want to be taken advantage of.

They spent big on Harry Maguire last summer though are reluctant to repeat the feat on Jadon Sancho this year.

Though if Mbappe is available next summer, there is certainly the financial clout at Old Trafford for United to be in the transfer battle.
