Kylian Mbappe is one of the most promising footballers in the world right now, as the Frenchman has been in great form for Paris Saint-Germain, turning a lot of heads to him. It’s well known that Real Madrid are very interested in his services, but other clubs like Juventus or Liverpool could be waiting for their opportunity, as well.
Paris Saint-Germain could be preparing for life after Mbappe, more so given his reluctance to sign a new contract with Les Parisiens. Today, we’re going to name five players that could succeed the 20-year-old at the Parc des Princes.
Here are the 5 best candidates to replace Kylian Mbappe at Paris Saint-Germain.
Mohamed Salah has been one of the best attackers in European football in recent times, becoming a key figure in Liverpool’s recent success both in England and abroad. The Egyptian keeps enchanting everybody every week and he’s been linked with a move away from Anfield, with Barcelona and Real Madrid following him.
However, PSG have also been one of those sides interested in Salah, who could be a great addition to the French side. He can play on the flanks and through the middle, exactly like Kylian.
Jadon Sancho is a traditional winger, but it’s also someone who can score with some ease. The England international has exceeded with Borussia Dortmund and his departure from Germany may well be closer than ever.
This season hasn’t been the best for Sancho after a couple of disciplinary episodes made his boss Lucien Favre criticize and bench him at some point, but that hasn’t prevented several big clubs from setting their sights on the youngster. PSG is one of those and this is a signing that will make a lot of people happy in Paris. Sancho is another exciting young player, who has everything to be successful whenever he goes to play.
Vinicius Jr.'s stay with Real Madrid started in a great way, but that has changed this season. The Brazilian wonderkid has been unable to thrive under Zinedine Zidane and that has led to rumors about his departure from Real Madrid.
It’s understood that PSG are very interested in the player as sporting director Leonardo is claimed to be a big admirer of Vinicius. Perhaps Real could use this player to unlock negotiations for Mbappe and get Les Parisiens another promising player for the future.
Sadio Mane is another great player who has been linked with PSG. The Senegalese striker took things right where he left them last season, becoming arguably the best player on Liverpool’s ranks this campaign.
Mane was suggested as the biggest candidate to replace Neymar should the Brazilian decided to leave the Ligue 1 champions, but now he could actually share touches with the Brazil international at the Parc des Princes. One of the most in-form attackers in Europe right now, Sadio would be a terrific addition for Thomas Tuchel.
This one was linked with a move to PSG before Barcelona came up and signed him. After that, the Frenchman was reportedly an option for Barca to offer a swap deal to bring Neymar in once again.
Griezmann hasn’t been in the best form recently with the Blaugrana and a return to France might be in his plans if things don’t change at the Camp Nou. The World Cup winner is a player with a big quality, so getting him to replace either Mbappe or Neymar would be a great deal for Les Parisiens.
