Liverpool and Manchester City have been heavily linked with an interest in Kylian Mbappe in the past few transfer windows and it looks like a small opportunity has just opened up for them to try and crack this deal.
Kylian Mbappe is without a doubt one of the best young talents in world football right now and up until now, everyone was sure that PSG will make him sign a new deal, alongside Neymar.
And while the Parisian outfit have managed to make Neymar sign a new deal at the club but as per the latest reports, they seem to be struggling with convincing Kylian Mbappe.
TEAMtalk cite Telefoot claiming: “Liverpool and Manchester City have been given hope after reports that Kylian Mbappe is stalling over signing a new deal at Paris Saint-Germain.
“The 22-year-old is one of the hottest properties in European football. PSG are rumoured to have paid €145m plus €35m in add-ons for his services back in 2017. But it is likely that any interested party would have to go beyond those figures to snare him from Paris.
“The World Cup winner will enter the final year of his Parc des Princes deal next season. And the Ligue 1 giants know they must act to ensure he does not leave for nothing in 2022.
“Neymar recently extended his stay with the club, with the Brazil superstar penning terms until 2025. But despite PSG making his extension a priority, Mbappe is unwilling to rush into a decision on his future, according to Telefoot.”
If Kylian Mbappe is available in the market then not only Liverpool and Manchester City but a lot of other clubs will also go all out to try and sign him in the summer.

But despite all this chatter, we doubt if the World Cup winner will be leaving PSG any time soon.
PSG had a really disappointing run in the Champions League this season but Mauricio Pochettino is being fully backed by the club’s management so things are bound to look very different next season.
The 22-year-old still has a lot of football left ahead of him and we have a feeling this stalling is just a ploy to increase his wages or some other terms.
Man City and Liverpool are obviously the two major powerhouses in English football right now but clubs like Chelsea and Manchester United also have the finances to see such a deal through.
