Paris Saint-Germain will demand a fee of €200m for Kylian Mbappe despite the forward approaching the final year of his contract at the Parc des Prices this summer.
Mbappe underlined his status as the game’s finest young footballer with a scintillating showing in the Champions League in midweek, becoming just the third player to score a hat-trick against Barcelona in the competition in an outstanding performance at the Camp Nou.
The France international is arguably the most valuable asset in world football but PSG find themselves in a difficult situation, the 22-year-old yet to commit to a new deal with his current contract set to expire in 2022.
Mbappe has previously been linked with Real Madrid, whilst Liverpool and Manchester City have also been reported as potential destinations should he seek a new challenge away from the French capital.
PSG face a decision on whether to cash-in on the superstar this summer or risk the threat of him walking away from the club for free next summer, should Mbappe fail to agree a new contract.
According to Le Parisien, however, PSG will demand a staggering fee for the player even given the precarious nature of his contract situation and have placed a valuation of €200m on their leading scorer.
Mbappe discussed his future following his match-winning performance at Barcelona and reiterated his happiness with life in Paris, though suggested he is still considering his options after declaring his decision would not be made ‘on a single match’.
“It would be stupid to decide my future on a single match,” Mbappe told the press after the Barca game. “The truth is that it is about reflecting for the long-term. I have always said that I am happy here. This sort of match makes me even happier. The PSG shirt is one that I hold dear to my heart.”
