PSG Targets Dembele as Potential Mbappe Replacement Amid Real Madrid Links

In an unexpected turn of events, Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) is considering triggering the €50 million (£43m/$54m) release clause of Barcelona star, Ousmane Dembele. This potential move comes as the future of PSG’s star forward, Kylian Mbappe, remains uncertain.

According to Foot Mercato, Dembele is seen as a top candidate to fill Mbappe’s boots should the latter make an anticipated departure this summer. With Dembele’s release clause set at €50 million, PSG stands ready to fund the full amount, although half would be shared with the player and his representatives, leaving Barcelona with just €25 million.

In an interesting twist, Mbappe has reportedly informed PSG of his unwillingness to renew his current contract, which expires next summer. This leaves PSG in a precarious position – they risk losing their key player to free agency if they cannot negotiate an extension or facilitate a lucrative transfer this summer. With the appointment of Luis Enrique, former Barcelona manager, PSG hopes to navigate this tricky situation and prevent Mbappe from departing without any financial return.

Rumors have been swirling around the future of Mbappe, with Spanish giants Real Madrid allegedly willing to shell out €200 million (£171m/$217m) to bring the French international to Santiago Bernabeu. Meanwhile, Dembele’s performance in the previous season, with eight goals and nine assists in 35 appearances for Barcelona, has attracted PSG’s attention.

The future of Mbappe remains the hot topic of this summer’s football transfer saga. It is clear that any move for Dembele by PSG heavily relies on Mbappe’s decision. The potential departure of the World Cup winner is set to trigger a domino effect in the transfer market.
