Paris Saint-Germain star Kylian Mbappé could be on his way out this summer transfer window. The 24-year-old has one year left on his contract, and the capital club doesn’t want him to exit as a free agent.
All eyes are on Real Madrid to make an offer for the Frenchman, but there are other interested parties. RMC Sports’ Fabrice Hawkins reported on Sunday that Chelsea are interested in the 24-year-old.
The Blues are studying the feasibility of the transfer, but there’s yet to be an offer from the London-based club. Furthermore, Hawkins notes that at least one other English side is interested.
Hawkins ends his reporting that Al-Hilal wants Mbappé too. The Saudi Arabian club is willing to offer the player a €400 million salary over two years. Al-Hilal also wants to give PSG a €200 million transfer fee.

The assumption has always been that the PSG star would someday join Real Madrid. However, that might not be the case.
PSG has put the 2018 FIFA World Cup winner up for sale to the highest bidder. All it could take is one club presenting an offer and project that Mbappé cannot refuse, and Real Madrid is again left out in the cold.
It will be interesting to see if Los Blancos take any of these rumors seriously and begin putting the wheels in motion for Mbappé this summer.
