A new development has occurred in Real Madrid’s pursuit of Paris Saint-Germain forward Kylian Mbappe with La Gazzetta dello Sport (h/t Mundo Deportivo) claiming that Chelsea and Liverpool will both try to take advantage of his contract situation.

Mbappe’s future continues to be a hotly debated topic and for a while the World Cup winner only had links with Real Madrid.

Initially, it appeared that the talented Frenchman had two primary options on the table: extending his contract with PSG or making a noteworthy move to join Real Madrid.

Chelsea, Liverpool ready to splash the cash

As it turns out, recent reports have unveiled surprising developments, claiming that Chelsea and Liverpool have emerged as contenders eager to secure the services of the forward.

According to the latest details, both Premier League teams are gearing up to invest substantial sums in their pursuit of the PSG star.

For what it is worth, the Premier League duo had been previously linked as potential destinations for Mbappe during the past summer transfer window as well.

Despite these speculations, though, the forward ultimately remained with PSG, but now it seems they are determined to rekindle their interest.

Liverpool have edge but Madrid a tempting destination

Liverpool hold a unique position in this story, as Mbappe and his associates maintain a positive rapport with the club. In fact, last summer, there were whispers of the possibility of the young forward temporarily joining the English side on loan.

However, this suggestion, put forth by PSG, was perceived as a tactic to exert pressure on their prized player.

On the other hand, Real Madrid remain firm in their belief that Mbappe’s heart has always yearned for a stint at the Santiago Bernabeu.

However, in a strategic move to avoid repeating past errors, they plan to initiate discussions with the player come January.

The objective is to secure a pre-contract agreement, ensuring his arrival on a free transfer next June.

Such a move is one that PSG is determined to thwart, as they continue their efforts to persuade him to extend his contract, set to expire in June 2024. At present, Mbappe continues to maintain a cryptic silence regarding his future.
