PSG set 200m-euro price tag on Real Madrid target Mbappé

Although he is out of contract next year, PSG have reportedly resolved not to sell Kylian Mbappé for under 200 million euros.

The future of Kylian Mbappé, who scored a stunning hat-trick in Paris Saint-Germain’s 4-1 Champions League thumping of Barcelona on Tuesday, remains uncertain.

PSG are currently attempting to secure the renewal of team-mate Neymar's contract, but tying Mbappé down to a new deal is also one of the Parisians' priorities, all the more so after his memorable display at the Camp Nou.

However, the striker is currently stalling on signing an extension to his contract, which expires in 2022, as Real Madrid eye a summer swoop for a player identified at the Bernabéu as a major transfer target.

He has also been linked with clubs such as Liverpool, Manchester City and Juventus.

But if PSG are to sell, claims a report in the French newspaper Le Parisien, an offer of at least 200 million euros will have to come in for the World Cup winner, whose performance against Barça has served to boost his transfer value.

Although the 22-year-old will only have 12 months left to run on his contract in the summer, PSG reportedly see this asking price as a fair reflection of his potential as a player and feel they cannot justify letting him leave for anything under that.

According to Le Parisien, there are currently no clubs in a position to meet PSG’s demands, with the financial crisis caused by the coronavirus pandemic leaving potential suitors with severely depleted transfer war chests. 

Mbappé's 30-million-euro annual wage is also a stumbling block for any club eyeing the France international’s signing, the publication adds.
