Despite signing a new deal with Paris Saint-Germain in the summer, Kylian Mbappe has once again become a hot topic in the transfer market after new reports suggest he is unhappy with life at PSG.
The striker is reportedly keen to seal a move from Paris in January after there were disagreements within the board over a number of reasons, including the club’s inability to sign a new centre-forward in the summer.
Mbappe also has a troubled relationship with one of the club’s star players at Neymar. This has played a key role in convincing the attacker to think elsewhere, with Real Madrid appearing to be his preferred option.
There were reports of a smear campaign against Mbappe launched by PSG in 2019 which, if proven, could lead to the player’s contract termination.
But according to a report by L’Equipeit seems Mbappe is planning to solve his problem by buying himself out of his contract as he feels the club can no longer be trusted.
Although terminating the contract without mutual agreements often requires a large sum of money and a lengthy legal battle, Mbappe believes he can terminate his PSG contract and make himself available as a free agent ahead of the upcoming January transfer window.
It could pave the way for Real Madrid to sign the Frenchman after the turn of the year, although the reigning European champions have built some resentment against Mbappe following their decision to stay at PSG in the summer.
They also support a move for Erling Haaland as they believe the Norwegian could be a more tactically tolerable option.
Still, the possibility of signing Mbappe might be too tempting for a club like Real Madrid, who ideally wouldn’t pass up the opportunity to sign one of the best players in world football on a free transfer if he actually buys out his PSG contract.
