Paris Saint-Germain is pulling all the stops to retain Kylian Mbappé, whose contract will expire in June, allowing him to become a free agent. The capital club wants to do whatever it takes to persuade the France international to sign a new deal.
Nonetheless, Les Pairisens can’t put all their eggs in the 23-year-old’s basket, and they’ll need to have different plans if they want to replace Mbappé if he does indeed leave for Real Madrid.
Sky Sports reports that if the forward does exit this summer, it will make it even more likely that PSG will try to sign Robert Lewandowski from Bayern Munich, whose contract expires in 2023.
Although Lewandowski is one of the better goal scorers in the world, the Poland international is 33-years-old. PSG reportedly wants to get young in the forward group since Mbappé is the only player in the group in his early to mid-20s.
Lewandowski is a great player, but with the French giants not wanting to extend Angel Di Maria due to his age, it wouldn’t make sense to go after the Bayern Munich striker as a replacement for Mbappé.
