Premier League

4 English Clubs Kylian Mbappe could sign for on a Free Transfer Next Summer

Despite Lionel Messi's arrival at Parc des Princes, Kylian Mbappe's PSG contract expires next summer, and the World Cup winner intends to depart at the end of the campaign.

However, only a few few clubs will be able to meet Mbappe's salary demands.

Real Madrid are the clear favourites to sign Mbappe, with the attacker stating that he would have only joined the Blancos this summer, but who else could sign the young Frenchman?

Real Madrid

Real Madrid are the clear frontrunner to sign Mbappe, and the youngster has made it clear that he wants to play for them. Mbappe grew up idolizing the Spanish giants and has made no secret of his desire to play for them.

But is now the right time for him to follow in his idol Cristiano Ronaldo's footsteps? Madrid is in trouble financially, and it's difficult to see how things will improve in the coming year.

It's possible that Madrid will have a difficult season both at home and in Europe. Will they still be an attractive option for the Frenchman if their star falls far enough?

Man City

Manchester City does have the financial power to get Mbappe to the club. Given the rivalry between Qatar and the UAE, if he went to City, it would be a slap in the face to PSG's Qatari owners.

After failing to acquire a striker this summer, City are in desperate need of a centre forward.

Mbappe may be able to fill that role, though his speed may be underused in Pep Guardiola's possession-based style. Playing for such a great figure, however, will offer its own set of advantages.

Man United

When it comes to Mbappe, Manchester United must, without a doubt, be mentioned. They are, after all, the home of Cristiano Ronaldo, the striker's idol growing up. They, like Real Madrid, are a world recognised club.

Furthermore, United have the kind of financial power that Madrid can only dream of at the moment, and they are a team on the rise, having recruited Raphael Varane and Jadon Sancho this summer.

The prospect of becoming the first player in the post-Sir Alex Ferguson era to lead them to a Premier League title would be tempting.

Liverpool

While Liverpool are not known for their lavish transfer fees, they will undoubtedly see the value in paying Mbappe a high wage.

The Reds, after all, are in desperate need of an offensive boost, and the pace that Mbappe brings to the fore is perfect for Jurgen Klopp's thrilling, direct style.

Furthermore, Mbappe has already expressed his admiration for Klopp, and having experienced the high-pressure atmosphere at Anfield with PSG, they are surely a candidate to a make a move.

Chelsea

Chelsea are, without a doubt, the underdogs in this race. They have clearly filled their centre-forward position for the foreseeable future, having signed Romelu Lukaku from Inter for a club-record fee this summer.

But anything is possible at Stamford Bridge with Roman Abramovich in charge. Should Timo Werner have another difficult season, the shadow of Mbappe towering over him might put him under pressure, as the Russian has shown a desire to make major deals even when they were not deemed to be necessary in the past.
