French Superstar Kylian Mbappe puts Liverpool and Man Utd on red alert after PSG reject contract



Kylian Mbappé could leave PSG as a free agent next summer

Manchester United, Liverpool and Real Madrid are on high alert as Kylian Mbappe has decided not to trigger a renewal option in his contract with Paris Saint-Germain, according to reports in France.

PSG announced last year that the 24-year-old’s new contract, valued at over £547m, would run until June 2025.

However, L’Equipe report that the last year of the contract hinges on an option that Mbappé doesn’t want to exercise and expects to exercise by the end of July.
The move means the France international, who has scored 40 goals in all competitions this season, could be available as a free agent next summer.

PSG are now under pressure to decide whether to sell their prized asset this summer or risk losing it for nothing at the end of next season. L’Equipe report that Real Madrid, Liverpool and Manchester United are all monitoring Mbappe’s situation at PSG and could make a move if the French club decide to sell.

Asked about his future at PSG last month, Mbappe said: “The next step? Win the Champions League.
“I’ve already reached a final, a semi-final, a quarter-final and a round of 16… I’ve done everything but win.” That’s all I need. Or? In Paris. I am Parisian and under contract. So it’s PSG.

Mikel Arteta could sacrifice Arsenal star to pave way for James Maddison transfer. 

PSG, meanwhile, are already facing the prospect of losing both Lionel Messi and Neymar this summer.

Messi is set to leave the club once his contract expires, while Neymar is reportedly looking to leave PSG, with Chelsea and Manchester United considering a move.


Liverpool incoming transfer boss makes Victor Osimhen admission at Anfield 

Liverpool are set to appoint Jörg Schmadtke as their new sporting director, but he comes to Anfield after falling out with one of the most wanted players in world football.

New Liverpool sporting director Joerg Schmadtke arrives at Anfield with only one regret: the sale of Neapolitan sensation Victor Osimhen.

The former Hannover 96, FC Cologne and Wolfsburg boss is set to replace Julian Ward on Merseyside. He will be responsible for overseeing the Reds’ activities in the transfer market this summer.

Schmadtke certainly has a task ahead of him as he attempts to rebuild a side that have crumbled this season and will be out of the Champions League draw this summer. In somewhat worrying news ahead of his arrival, the 59-year-old has already had a falling out with one of the most wanted leaders in world football, Napoli striker Victor Osimhen.

The pair’s path crossed whilst they were at Bundesliga giants Wolfsburg. The Nigerian was not quite the ruthless striker that he has developed into currently but a youngster attempting to feel his way into the game.

He had begun his professional career with the German side, going 16 games without a goal before being allowed to join Belgian club Charleroi on a season-long loan. There, Osimhen flourished with 20 goals in all competitions during the 2018/19 campaign.

A permanent move was then quickly on the cards as Charleroi activated their £3m option to sign him. Osimhen would be on the move once more just weeks later as Lille swooped with a £19m deal.

Reflecting on the decision to let the striker leave, Schmadtke admitted he has regret over cashing in so soon. Speaking to Kicker, he said: “It wasn’t a good move, in hindsight. When I came, he [Osimhen] was limping and running in circles.

“I was told that the strikers we had weren’t good enough. The most important lesson is that you have to be patient with some transfers.”

Since then, Osimhen has gone from strength to strength. An 18-goal haul in his debut season with Lille convinced Napoli to spend an eye-watering €60m (£58.9m) on him.

He has continued to score regularly with 56 goals in 99 outings for the Italian side. 28 of those have come this season and helped Napoli to end their long wait for a Serie A crown. 

Interest continues to flow – led by Premier League duo Manchester United and Chelsea, who are looking to bolster their attacking options ahead of next season. However, Napoli manager Aurelio De Laurentiis has insisted that Osimhen will stay at Stadio Diego Armando Maradona.
Speaking to Rai Sport earlier this month, he said: “I’m not going to sell Victor Osimhen this summer – no way!”

Osimhen still has two years left on his contract with Napoli and could add to Schmadtke’s regret if he moves to the Premier League and potentially scores against the Reds in the near future.
