Despite their resounding hat-trick in Barcelona, Paris Saint-Germain could still resolve to sell Kylian Mbappé, if the French striker does not extend his contract. But PSG will be very greedy.
“It would be stupid to decide his future on a single match,” said Kylian Mbappé, Tuesday evening, after his fabulous hat-trick on the lawn of Barcelona in the Champions League.

Reluctantly, because the PSG would obviously like to keep it for many more years. But the capital club, above all, does not intend to let its jewel slip away without any transfer compensation in a year and a half. And intends to recover a very nice sum, which could be reinvested in the salary of Lionel Messi for example.
Only four clubs can afford it
According to Le Parisien, PSG would indeed have set the bar at 200 million euros in the event of Mbappé’s departure this summer. This is huge for a player who will then have only one year of contract. But PSG, despite the health crisis which should lead to a drop in transfer amounts, knows the intrinsic value of Mbappé: a 22-year-old star who will be a candidate for the Ballon d’Or for the next 10 years.
Moreover, this price would not be likely to cool the enthusiasm of the four clubs likely to afford Mbappé. According to Le Parisien, it is of course Real Madrid, but also Liverpool, Manchester City and Juventus, in the event of the departure of Cristiano Ronaldo. And the FC Barcelona ? Financially, he no longer has the means. And sportingly, it is less attractive. Mbappé was able to notice this Tuesday evening at Camp Nou …
