Paris Saint-Germain wants to extend Kylian Mbappé; that’s Plan A. However, the capital club needs backup plans to replace the 22-year-old should he depart this summer.
There are various candidates that PSG will have on their target list as possible replacements. According to TEAMtalk, the Ligue 1 side could be in the race for Leeds United winger Raphinha, as Neymar Jr. has put in a good word for the 24-year-old.
Over the international break, Neymar and the 24-year-old showed great chemistry, especially during the match against Uruguay. Leeds United is in 17th place and trying to stay out of the relegation zone as they sit three points from 18th place, Burnley.
When it comes to a possible price that PSG or any club interested in the Brazil international would need to pay, the report states that Leeds United is looking for £40-million for their prized forward.
Raphinha has made 39 appearances for the Premier League side, scoring nine goals and registering nine assists. In the end, PSG wants to hold onto Mbappé and extend him, but they’ll have to have a replacement list if that doesn’t occur, and it could include the Leeds United forward.
