Why PSG would prefer Mbappe to join Chelsea this summer

Paris Saint-Germain have effectively ruled Kylian Mbappe out of the first team after the 24-year-old refused to extend his contract, which expires in 2024.

They have vowed that the striker would never play for them again due to their belief that he had agreed to join Real Madrid on a free transfer next summer.

PSG would prefer to sell the Frenchman to Al Hilal in the coming weeks with the Saudi Arabian side having tabled an offer worth a record €300 million.

However, Mbappe has refused to move to the Middle East, while another scenario has now come to light from Paris.

The Ligue 1 champions would prefer to send the forward on loan to a club that is not playing in the Champions League next season.

Therefore, according to L’Equipe, a club that does not play in the big competition and that would afford his salary is only Chelsea.

Thus, PSG are in talks with the London club about a possible deal, aiming to convince the player within a year to continue the deal with them.
