The summer transfer window is gaining tremendous momentum with some clubs aiming to buy some big players. One of the major stars in the fray for the transfer before the end of the August 31 deadline is Kylian Mbappe. The French superstar is aiming to leave Paris Saint Germain and head into a new club before the transfer window closes. There are speculations that Mbappe could be heading to Real Madrid. But, the financial situation at the club means that Real Madrid might not be able to afford him.

However, according to the latest rumors emerging from the transfer market, Mbappe could soon become a Premier League player, with one English Club reportedly interested in acquiring his services. According to one report in RMC Sport, Paris Saint Germain has tabled a new five-year contract for the 22-year-old. But, Mbappe has reportedly not met the offer with enthusiasm and thus Paris Saint Germain might sell him.

Kylian Mbappe heading to Liverpool?

With Real Madrid in financial trouble, there are rumors that Mbappe might be headed to Liverpool. There is still one year left in Mbappe’s contract with Paris Saint-German. But, with Lionel Messi and Neymar in the side, he is now the third-most-expensive player in PSG.

With Xherdan Shaqiri also been released by Liverpool, the speculations have grown that Mbappe could be interested in joining Liverpool. Real Madrid has not yet made an official offer to the French footballer. But their financial situation might force them to delay his acquisition by a year.

Before Liverpool, there was one more major club interested in acquiring Kylian Mbappe. Manchester United has added Mbappe to their list of potential targets as per ESPN sources. Although signing a central defensive midfielder and right-back are their priorities, the Red Devils could also be open to adding another striker. United is looking at building for their future. Therefore they plan to buy a center-forward in the 2022 summer window.

Manchester United still interested in Mbappe?

Edinson Cavani is expected to leave Old Trafford at the end of this season. The 34-year-old striker scored 16 goals for United in 17 appearances in all competitions last season. Cavani joined United from French club Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) in October 2020. The Uruguayan will possibly return to Boca Juniors after his stint with the English club.

Mbappe sees Santiago Bernabeu as his preferred destination. He has told his senior teammates that he expects to stay in Paris for one more year. However, that would see the expiry of the Frenchman’s contract. The 22-year-old will be available on a free transfer. That is something PSG would not want to happen because he was brought in to PSG for the second most expensive deal ever, which was worth a reported 180 million euros.

Mbappe has made a name for himself as one of the world’s best players since breaking onto the scene in the 2016-17 season with Monaco. He made a loan move to PSG the next summer before making the permanent transfer. During his time in Paris, the forward has been simply sensational, scoring 133 goals in 177 appearances in five seasons.
