Paris Saint-Germain are undoubtedly the most talked about team in this transfer window.As well as Lionel Messi, they have signed four top class players in Donnarumma, Ashraf, Ramos and Wijnaldum for just about €60 million.
Transfer talks open for Mbappe
While there has been a good haul in terms of reinforcements, in the case of the current players in the squad, one of the core players, Mbappe, is also close to leaving the team.
As things stand now, because both Real Madrid and Mbappe are very eager to facilitate the transfer. Therefore it is almost a matter of time before Mbappe finally wears a Real Madrid shirt.
Paris is looking for Mbappe’s replacement
Although transfer talks have already started, Paris Saint-Germain have still not made a final response to Real Madrid’s second offer, according to As. The main reason why the Paris Saint-Germain side have delayed giving their nod to the transfer is because they want to finalize Mbappe’s replacement before he leaves the club.
It is very unlikely that Paris Saint-Germain will be able to find a replacement of Mbappe’s calibre in the current transfer market. In terms of athleticism, both Cairo and Lewandowski are options to consider. However, for Paris Saint-Germain, they are both on the older side and don’t fit the team’s current recruitment requirements.
As they have already signed two veterans in this transfer window in Ramos and Messi, it would be very detrimental to the age structure of the team to continue signing older players.
Paris takes a fancy to Haaland
Paris Saint-Germain seem to have targeted Borussia Dortmund winger Harland. A top scorer on par with Mbappe, Harland is a perfect fit for Paris Saint-Germain’s recruitment strategy, both in terms of his athleticism and his age at 21.
At one point in the transfer window, Chelsea were the most promising team to sign Harland, but they were rejected by Dortmund on several occasions. In the end they chose to give up and signed Lukaku instead.
According to the Telegraph, Paris Saint-Germain have had preliminary talks with Raiola, Harland’s agent, about the possibility of signing him. For Dortmund, however, if Paris Saint-Germain can make an offer that satisfies them, then it is not impossible that the transfer will come to fruition.
Harland looks more efficient in the forward line than Mbappe, whose technical characteristics require a lot of possession, and is perhaps a better partner for Messi and Neymar than Mbappe.
Real Madrid ready to welcome Mbappe
On Real Madrid’s side, they are confident of signing Mbappe this transfer window. According to As, Real Madrid have even prepared the number 5 shirt for Mbappe, a number owned by Zinedine Zidane.It is reported that preparations for Mbappe’s debut have already begun on Real Madrid’s part.
According to transfer expert Skira, Real Madrid have agreed with Mbappe on a personal deal. After joining Real Madrid, Mbappe will be offered a six-year contract with an annual salary of €35 million. Such a salary level is even higher than the previous offer made by Paris Saint-Germain to extend his contract.
