PSG forward Kylian Mbappe has reportedly demanded a clause be agreed ahead of signing a new contract with the French giants in case a top team comes calling.
Mbappe has been strongly linked with a transfer move to Liverpool in recent months, but also remains a key target on Real Madrid’s transfer wishlist.
The France international’s current deal with PSG runs until the summer of 2022, but the newly-crowned Ligue 1 winners are looking to extend this.
Kylian Mbappe appears to be interested in signing fresh terms, rather than force through a move to another club.
According to reports, the Frenchman wants the ability to get out of his contract, should the right club come knocking on the door.
According to Spanish publication AS, Mbappe has Real Madrid in mind, and wants to provide the Spanish side with a chance to sign him, should they wish to.
Release clauses are illegal in France, but Kylian Mbappe could strike a gentleman’s agreement with Paris Saint-Germain.
The clause wouldn’t be limited to only Madrid making an offer though, and could be triggered also by Liverpool, who have been linked with him in recent months.
Transfer speculation first emerged amid reports Los Blancos were keen on signing Liverpool forward Sadio Mane in the summer.
It has been reported that the Reds would use the £150million gotten from the Mane deal to fund a mega-money bid for Mbappe.
