Why Napoli Is Eager to See Kylian Mbappé Leave PSG for Real Madrid, Report Says

Kylian Mbappé is reportedly leaving Paris Saint-Germain this summer to sign with Real Madrid. As a result, the capital club will need to find a replacement for his production. The Parisians could look to bolster their No. 9 position, as neither Gonçalo Ramos nor Randal Kolo Muani have solidified themselves as the top striker.

As a result, PSG sporting advisor Luis Campos might have to go into the market to find a goal-scorer. One target constantly linked to the capital club is Victor Osimhen. Napoli are reportedly salivating at the thought that PSG could be in the market, along with other Premier League clubs bidding for the striker.

La Gazzetta dello Sport (h/t Le10Sport) reports Napoli’s excitement over Mbappé’s potential departure. The reason? The Serie A side knows that it would mean another suitor for Osimhen and a club that could pay the €130 million release clause for the Nigerian.

Several Premier League clubs are cited as having an interest in Osimhen, so it would create a bidding war that might lead to one or more clubs opting to pay the release clause rather than trying to negotiate.
