PSG issue Kylian Mbappe update amid Liverpool and Real Madrid transfer interest

PSG have confirmed that they have entered contract talks with Kylian Mbappe as Liverpool and Real Madrid continue to be linked with the forward.

The Frenchman moved to Paris in 2017 having burst onto the scene with Monaco.

In the three-and-a-half seasons since the 21-year-old has continued to go from strength to strength and notched his 100th goal for the club on Saturday night.

His achievements have continued to attract admiring glances from around Europe.

Mbappe is seen as the most valuable player on the planet following a recent survey.

And PSG are keen to reprise the World Cup winner’s services with Leonardo confirmed that discussions are underway regarding a new deal.

He told Canal+: “We’re talking. We want to discuss, and he also wants to discuss.

“Now is also the time to come to a clearer idea of his future.

“It is going well. We have taken steps forward compared to 10, 15 days ago and we will continue.”

Reports claim that PSG will consider bids of around £160m should talks breakdown.

And Mbappe has not been shy in expressing admiration for those away from the French capital which has only served to intensity speculation.

Earlier this year he said: “If you’re a boy and you’re French, your idol is Zidane.”

With the Madrid boss repaying the favour by lavishing praise on his compatriot, who has long been tipped as a Galactico.

Mbappe also spoke highly of the Premier League champions last year as they powered their way to the title.

“Liverpool have been a machine in the Premier League,” he claimed.

“To be as ruthless as they have been would come from lots of hard work in training and from having a very good manager.”

Were the forward to become available it is more likely that Madrid would make a move.

The Spanish club have often looked to attract the world’s biggest names while the Reds have been more calculated in the transfer market in recent times.
