Liverpool, PSG Eye Real Madrid Winger’s Situation as Mbappé Arrival Looms

Kylian Mbappé is reportedly heading to Real Madrid, as it’s a matter of when the two sides reach an agreement. If the Frenchman arrives, questions will arise over the futures of Vinícius Jr. and Rodrygo. 

While Mbappé can play the No. 9 position if needed, he prefers to play as a winger. Paris Saint-Germain invested in Gonçalo Ramos and Randal Kolo Muani to play the striker role to allow the 25-year-old more starts on the wing.

Real Madrid already has Vinícius Jr. and Rodrygo, and if Mbappé remains adamant about being a winger, could either of these players be targeted if their playing time drops next season? Todosfichajes reports that Liverpool and PSG are currently monitoring the situation regarding Vinícius.

Liverpool will eventually need to look for a long-term replacement for Mohamed Salah, and the Brazilian is probably that player. Meanwhile, PSG could be eyeing their next superstar player, and the 23-year-old might fit that mold.

It’s too early to be talking about Vinícius or Rodrygo leaving. Real Madrid will probably give it a season to see how the attacking pieces work, but if playing time is slashed for either of these two Brazilians, then one might be open to a departure.
