Mbappe 'stalling over new contract as current deal expires in 2022'

Kylian Mbappe ‘is stalling over a new contract with just a year left on his current deal amid Real Madrid interest… with PSG lining up a move for Liverpool star Mohamed Salah if the Frenchman leaves’

  • Kylian Mbappe’s current contract with Paris Saint-Germain runs out in 2022
  • The 22-year-old has been consistently linked with Real Madrid this season
  • Zinedine Zidane badly needs another goalscorer alongside Karim Benzema 
  • PSG are apparently looking to bring in Mohamed Salah if Mbappe leaves
  • The Egyptian has admitted he has not yet discussed a new deal to stay at Anfield 
  • Salah has also been linked with Real and Barcelona with his contract up in 2023

Paris Saint-Germain will reportedly target Mohamed Salah as a summer replacement for Kylian Mbappe if the Frenchman decides to move to Real Madrid.

The 22-year-old, whose current deal runs out in the summer of 2022, is hesitant about signing a new contract just days after Neymar put pen to paper to keep him at the Parc des Princes until 2025. 

Los Blancos have consistently been linked with Mbappe and are readying a big-money move, with the French giants looking at Salah to fill the potential void, according to Telefoot.

Mbappe is the top scorer in Ligue 1 this season with 25 goals – six strikes ahead of the next-best marksmen Memphis Depay and Wissam Ben Yedder – but with PSG in real danger of missing out on the league title for the first time in 10 seasons after they again failed in their quest to win the Champions League, he may feel he has achieved all he can with Mauricio Pochettino’s men.

Despite Real Madrid also crashing out in the semi-finals of Europe’s elite club competition this season, Zinedine Zidane’s side have won it on four of the previous seven occasions.

Zidane will also be keen to add a natural goalscorer to his ranks, with Karim Benzema’s 21 LaLiga strikes this term streets ahead of his next-best team-mate Casemiro on just six. 

Like PSG, Real are set for a nailbiting end to their domestic season as they trail city rivals Atletico by two points heading into the final three games after a disappointing 2-2 draw at the Estadio Alfredo di Stefano on Sunday. 

Salah’s Liverpool have also had an off-colour season, with the Reds woefully failing to defend their Premier League crown and succumbing to Zidane’s men in the quarter-finals of the Champions League. 

The Egyptian’s goal tally has still held strong though, with 20 goals in 33 Premier League games putting him just one behind England’s leading marksman Harry Kane this campaign.

Salah’s Liverpool deal doesn’t run out until 2023, but the 28-year-old admitted earlier this month that no-one has spoken to him about a new deal, having also been linked to Barcelona and Real Madrid. 

‘No-one is talking to me about that, so I can’t say much about that. No-one in the club is talking to me about anything so I do not know,’ he said.
