According to journalist Julien Laurens, Kylian Mbappé is worth €300 million on the open transfer market but if Paris Saint-Germain cannot extend his contract, that number will start to decrease quickly as his current deal expires in June of 2022.
On a recent episode of ESPN FC, Laurens was asked about the transfer rumor involving Erling Haaland and Real Madrid and how that potential deal could impact Mbappé.
Essentially, Laurens makes the case that Real Madrid could pay Haaland’s release clause at Borussia Dortmund next January and have enough money to afford Mbappé the following summer in 2021 but only if he doesn’t sign a contract extension with PSG before then.
If Mbappé would fetch €300 million right now, next summer, Laurens believes the price would decrease to around €150 million to €200 million.

There’s always the possibility that if PSG cannot get the Frenchman to sign an extension that they just flat out refuse to sell him at all and allow him to leave on a free transfer after the 2021-22 season. A club like PSG needs players and star power more than they need the money.
I remain hopeful that Mbappé will sign a contract extension. He is only 21-years-old and has plenty of time to play for Real Madrid if that is what he wants to do. I strongly believe he wants to deliver a UEFA Champions League title to his hometown club and become a legend in French football.
