Kylian Mbappé will sign for Paris Saint-Germain within the next few days, according to Le Parisien.
The French publication stated that the young jewel of French football will move north from Monaco, to the city of his birth, for €150m. In addition to that fee, an unnamed player will move in the opposite direction, from PSG to Monaco.
PSG have already parted with a world-record 222m fee this summer to bring Neymar to the banks of the Seine from Barcelona. The club intend to sell fringe players in order to adhere to Financial Fair Play and, according to Le Parisien, Aurier, Ben Arfa, Krychowiak, Guedes, Lucas, Draxler, and Di María are among those who may have to find a new club before the end of the transfer window
Mbappé has drawn admiring glances from the Europe’s most illustrious clubs, after he burst on to the scene for Monaco last season. The 18-year-old scored 15 goals in 29 Ligue 1 games as Leonardo Jardim’s team swaggered to the title.
Real Madrid, Barcelona, and Manchester City are among the clubs to have shown interest. But it appears that PSG will win the race for the most sought-after player in Europe, and secure another symbolic victory for the club’s Qatari backers.
