Paris Saint-Germain wants to offload Kylian Mbappé this summer transfer window to avoid losing him as a free agent next year. Real Madrid remains the favorite for the 24-year-old, so they have leverage.
However, the capital club likely wants some bidding war to ensure they secure a respectable transfer fee. L’Equipe’s Loïc Tanzi reports that the Ligue 1 champions are now awaiting a concrete offer from Chelsea.

As for what the Blues are willing to offer for the Frenchman, that information has yet to be filtered out to the media. Nonetheless, the Premier League club isn’t in the UEFA Champions League, so it’s hard to envision Mbappé heading to London.
Real Madrid, who have long been considered the frontrunners to sign Mbappé. As a result, this might be a way to pressure Los Blancos to come up with a decent bid.
These next few weeks will be crucial to see if Mbappé moves on and begins a new chapter or if the situation will only get messier.
