Transfer: Chelsea join race to sign Mbappe from PSG

“No, I'm not joining Real Madrid in January, it's not happening, I’m staying” - Kylian Mbappé

Todd Boehly is eager to sabotage Kylian Mbappe’s rumored Real Madrid transfer, so Chelsea has joined the fight to get the Paris Saint-Germain forward.

Mbappe’s future has been the subject of intense speculation since the French international chose to reject a proposal from Al-Hilal of the Saudi Pro League.

PSG is eager to cash in on the 2022 World Cup Golden Boot winner this summer.

The Daily Record reports that Chelsea is trying to negotiate a player-plus-cash deal to lure the young star to the Premier League and is the most recent team to enter the fight for his signature.

Liverpool is reportedly in talks to sign him on a loan, in the meanwhile.

Chelsea’s move for Mbappe is an unexpected one; having spent over £500 million on players in the last two transfer windows, they needed to first recoup some cash on outgoing players such as Kai Havertz (£60m/$79m) and Mason Mount (£55m/$72m) in order to spend this summer.

However, having made some crucial sales it seems they’re ready to go in with what would have to be an enormous bid for PSG’s star man.

Mbappe was reputedly offered a €50m (£43m/$55m) salary by Real Madrid earlier this month, and was the subject of a €300m (£259m/$332m) offer from Al Hilal just days ago, so it would take a huge amount for Chelsea to be able to hijack the move.

Despite Chelsea’s reported interest in Mbappe, Real Madrid will remain the favorites to sign him this window.

And it’s no secret why PSG are so keen to get this sale done; on August 1, the club will be forced to pay the 24-year-old a loyalty bonus worth €60m (£52m/$66m), due to a clause in his current contract.

Even though several clubs are circling the French international, it seems highly unlikely that a move will be forced through before this point.

Once Mbappe gets his bonus, however, things could quickly speed up.
