This summer looks set to be a busy one. Not only will the delayed Euro 2020 fill our television screens from June 11 to July 11, the back pages of the newspapers will also contain plenty of intrigue when it comes to high-profile transfers.

Harry Kane, Erling Haaland, Paul Pogba, Jadon Sancho and Lionel Messi are just some of the players who face uncertain futures following the conclusion of the 2020/21 campaign. Over in France, Kylian Mbappe is another. Paris Saint-Germain hoped to tie their prized asset down to a new long-term deal earlier this year, but as things stand Mbappe has just over 12 months remaining on his contract at the Parc des Princes. Unsurprisingly, rival clubs are beginning to circle.

So, where will Mbappe be plying his trade at the start of next season? Let’s take a look at some of the options.

Madrid Calling for Ronaldo fan?

If Mbappe does depart the French capital, Real Madrid are the favourites to sign him. Los Blancos are long-term admirers of the World Cup winner, who idolised Cristiano Ronaldo while growing up.

“Mbappe really wants to go to Madrid,” his former team-mate Jese Rodriguez said earlier this year. “He began to [watch] Madrid when he was 16 years old, Cristiano was his idol. He loves Madrid and I am sure he will play there one day.”

As evidenced by their baffling refusal to withdraw from the doomed Super League project, Madrid are going through one or two financial difficulties right now. Yet the fact that Mbappe’s PSG contract expires in 2022 helps their cause. The closer it is to the end of a deal, the more power the player has. If the 22-year-old tells his current employers that he will not be signing fresh terms, PSG could conclude that it makes sense to cash in this summer.

There is also a sense that Madrid need a rebuild. This is a team that has grown old together, and their lack of dynamism was brutally exposed by Chelsea in the semi-finals of the Champions League. With Zinedine Zidane having vacated the hot seat, a new manager will demand to be backed in the transfer market – and that only increases the chances of Madrid going after Mbappe.

Liverpool the Most Likely English Destination

Liverpool are the second-favourites to sign Mbappe from PSG. The 2020/21 season ultimately ended well for the Reds, who secured Champions League football on the final weekend, but Jurgen Klopp and his players will not be content with another third-place finish in the Premier League next term.

Their need is less urgent than Madrid’s, but Liverpool will also be looking to add fresh blood to their team this summer. The front three has served the club extremely well throughout Klopp’s tenure, but many fans now believe that it is time to add a different dimension to the mix. Mbappe would certainly provide that, although his arrival would probably depend on one of Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane or Roberto Firmino seeking pastures new.

Mbappe has spoken highly of Liverpool in the past, and he would be a good stylistic fit for a team that remains at its most potent in transition. However, it remains to be seen whether the Reds would be able to pay the same salary as the likes of Real Madrid, Manchester City or even PSG. Salah is their highest-earner on £200,000 per week and Mbappe is reported to earn almost double that in Paris.

Manchester City Need a New Forward

Manchester City enjoyed a fantastic season in 2020/21, with Pep Guardiola’s false nine system reaping rewards domestically and on the continent. Sergio Aguero is on his way to Barcelona and Gabriel Jesus has still not won the full trust of his manager, so City are likely to be on the lookout for a new frontman this summer.

Erling Haaland and Harry Kane have both been linked with a move to the Etihad Stadium. There are, however, doubts over whether Haaland is really a Guardiola-type player, while Tottenham Hotspur will do all they can to prevent selling Kane to a Premier League rival.

Mbappe is another option, and City would have no problems paying the required transfer fee and wage packet. Yet PSG would be particularly loath to lose the 22-year-old to a club that, in terms of its ownership structure and recent history, is similar to its own.

Barcelona and Manchester United Rank Outsiders

Barcelona are clear outsiders to win the race for Mbappe. The Catalans would no doubt love to add the Frenchman to their squad list for next season, but it is hard to see how they could afford to pull off a deal.

With club debts supposedly topping £1 billion, Barcelona will be severely restricted in the upcoming transfer market. Their main priority is to tie Lionel Messi down to an extension, with the Argentina international now just a month away from becoming a free agent. Perhaps Barcelona would be able to mount a bid for Mbappe if Messi did move on, but for now it appears unlikely.

The same is true for Manchester United. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will have money to spend this summer, but the club’s list of targets does not include Mbappe. That could change as the window progresses, but for now it is Kane and Jadon Sancho who top United’s wish list.

PSG Face Nervous Wait

The most likely outcome is that Mbappe will still be at PSG at the start of next season, but the French giants have been left to sweat. Neymar has committed his future to the club already, yet Mbappe seems content to leave his options open. If he submits a formal request to leave, PSG will be in a very difficult position.

However, it may well suit Mbappe to remain tight-lipped throughout the summer, with a view to signing a new deal with PSG later this year or becoming a free agent in 2022. As such, fans of Madrid, Liverpool and Manchester City should not get too excited just yet.
