Chelsea are in a pole position to land Kylian Mbappe more than Real Madrid where the forward revealed to be his dream team
Paris Saint German may currently be in a trapped zone on Kylian Mbappe’s deal despite the club president claiming earlier that they are very much convinced the Frenchman would extend his stay in the club.
Mbappe will be 23 when his contract runs out next year and possibly he would then leave as a free agent which would be very detrimental to the club’s image.
One should know already that clubs like Paris Saint German and Manchester City aren’t after money made from transfer market as they are more concerned on promoting their owners.
The Qatar community is very much concerned on their name and protecting their reputation and with the World Cup set to be hosted in Qatar next year, seeing Mbappe leave a Club owned by same heads in a year they are hosting the World cup will only project the wrong perception about them.

Another thing but may not be really much effective in their decision making is a €250m threat on their financial book. PSG could be penalized by FFP if they fail to sell off some players after adding more players to their payroll.
Donarumma, Wijnaldum, Ramos and Achraf Hakimi are all newly acquired players and they still have recently made a strong push for Man United’s Paul Pogba which meant they are really hoping to complete another transfer.
PSG is known to always dribble their way out of FFP sanctions and may not consider the financial imbalance as a threat but it of course may have a role to play in the form of an excuse.
Now this is where the Chelsea thing comes in, the Londoners of course have the money to spend on Mbappe and with Tuchel bringing home the UEFA Champions League after inheriting the club halfway, it’s certain he gets any player he wants.
Kylian Mbappe confirmed lately thay he is still in good relationship with his former boss who is now Chelsea manager and would get in touch with him after the Euro, which definitely sparked off that transfer expectations of finally seeing him in a Chelsea shirt soon.
Paris Saint German in order to protect their name and avoid losing a player as talented as that for free, may decide to take the cash on his head this summer and let him leave.
And in this way, give a perfect excuse of having to balance their books and finally at least play in line with the FFP for once and also save the Qatar states from being thought of as one who couldn’t retain a player.
But one maybe considering why is Chelsea the only side considered as a destination, leaving Real Madrid out of the picture. Well, the issue is Real Madrid aren’t ready to make signings yet.
Most especially not for a player of Mbappe’s calibre. Los Blancos have been clearing names on their wage bills in order to make space to occupy Mbappe by next year and making him available in the transfer market now only puts Real Madrid off the chase.
This leaves Chelsea as the only destination should Mbappe be leaving, despite links also from Liverpool as Fabrizio Romano confirmed that to be mere rumors.
In this transfer saga, Mbappe definitely has the higher hand considering what he has achieved so far, winning every competition he has competed in except the UEFA Champions League.
He isn’t scared of leaving, as others may fear missing out a trophy if they leave. Mbappe is young and has the World Cup among trophies on his name, even if he stops playing today, he already achieved a lot.
He doesn’t even mind being benched for the whole of next for his refusal to sign an extension as long he knows he is leaving.
Letting him leave now may be the only option PSG have, as pausing the extension for so long clearly means he is interested on the outside and monitoring the future.
One thing is certain, the youngster is creating the part for other players to learn not to be Bossed by their clubs in a transfer negotiation.
