The situation surrounding Kylian Mbappe continues to get intriguing by the minute as more and more details emerge from his alleged falling out with Paris Saint-Germain.

The 23-year-old superstar signed a new contract with PSG only five months ago, snubbing a chance to join Real Madrid even though he looked set to move to the Santiago Bernabeu on a Bosman move in the summer.

There have been conflicting reports emerging on the Merengues’ stance about whether they wish to sign Mbappe now that he wants to leave PSG at the earliest possible.

However, according to a fresh report from Jan-Aage Fjortoft, as relayed by SPORT, there could be a possible agreement between Mbappe and Real Madrid about a transfer after the FIFA World Cup 2022 in Qatar.

Despite that, PSG have no intentions of selling the French international to Real Madrid whatsoever. In the meantime, though, there are four other top clubs pushing to sign Mbappe as he wishes to move on from Parc des Princes.

Liverpool are said to be one of the clubs keen on the 23-year-old. The Reds had been linked with a move for Mbappe in the past and even though they invested heavily in Darwin Nunez this past summer, the Frenchman seems to be on their agenda.

However, the Reds are not known for splashing over-the-top transfer fees on players and given that PSG value Mbappe at around €300-350 million, a move could be difficult.

Chelsea are another interested party as per the report from SPORT and it makes sense considering that they only have Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Armando Broja as their main strikers at the moment.

With Aubameyang, there have already been exit links while Broja is yet to hit his strides and lacks top-level experience. New owner Todd Boehly tried to sign Cristiano Ronaldo to add a superstar name to lead his project and with Mbappe now seemingly available, the Blues could swoop in.

Apart from the three clubs mentioned, Manchester City and Manchester United are also credited with a degree of interest in Mbappe. And they would certainly have the financial clout to pull off the deal.

However, City just invested in Erling Haaland and are unlikely to add Mbappe to the mix as well, while Manchester United are no longer competing at the top table, which would not appeal to the striker.

It remains to be seen how this whole story unravels and whether Mbappe does indeed leaves PSG in January and if so, where he ends up moving.
