Real Madrid has its eyes on Kylian Mbappé, especially with the 24-year-old playing this 2023–24 season on an expiring contract. As a result, the Spanish club is counting the days until they can secure the player as a free agent.
Nonetheless, Paris Saint-Germain isn’t going to stand by while Los Blancos plot another attempt to sign the Frenchman. SPORT reports that PSG have drawn up a shortlist of five Real Madrid players they will target in response to the Spanish club’s pursuit of Mbappé.
Here are the five players:
- Vinicius Junior
- Eduardo Camvinga
- Aurélien Tchouaméni
- Federico Valverde

PSG has shown in the past to clap back and grab a player with their eyes on one of their star players. The Ligue 1 giants have scooped up Neymar Jr. and Ousmane Dembélé from FC Barcelona.
Mbappé likely has no desire to play the No. 9 position, which is why PSG brought Gonçalo Ramos and Randal Kolo Muani. As a result, would Rodrygo or Vinicius Junior be okay with possibly coming off the bench if the 2018 FIFA World Cup winner is keen on playing as a winger?
It will be interesting if the Parisians pull one of these players away from the La Liga side.
