PSG Eyes Liverpool’s Uncertainty, Targets Star Player as Mbappé Replacement

Liverpool’s Mohamed Salah is a name that recently surfaced as a possible replacement for Kylian Mbappé. The 25-year-old will reportedly leave in June when his contract with Paris Saint-Germain expires.

As a result, many names are floating in the rumor mill that the Parisians might pursue to replace the Frenchman. Salah is one of the players, and courting the Egyptian would be a short-term solution for PSG.

The Athletic put a list together of players that the Ligue 1 side should pursue to begin the post-Mbappé, and Salah is one of the names. Journalist Andrew Fifield writes that PSG needs a recognizable football player and not only promising prospects. 

“He is 16 months from being a free agent, with no talks having started with Liverpool over a new contract; and, frankly, if you’re a club like PSG and you’re losing a celebrity forward, you need another one to replace them. Sponsors’ appetites are unlikely to be sated by signing a promising project player, and global superstars don’t come much bigger than Salah,” Fifield writes.

“Convincing Liverpool to part with him would not be straightforward, but if they were ever to entertain an offer, this summer might just be the time. They are without a sporting director to lead any new contract talks, leaving a space that could be exploited, and who knows what vision the manager replacing Jurgen Klopp might have for the team?”

PSG plans to bring in many new players this summer to bolster their squad across all positions. Additionally, the club will save around €200 million annually following Mbappé’s departure. 

The French side’s management intends to utilize this financial boost to enhance the team by investing in new talent. They’re embarking on a significant recruitment drive to bring in a variety of fresh faces.
