Paris Saint-Germain are reportedly readying a move to replace French star Kylian Mbappe. The 20-year-old has been linked with a move to Real Madrid, and even Liverpool in recent times, which has prompted Les Parisiens to think of possible solutions.

According to the Daily Mail, Paris Saint-Germain have identified Antoine Griezmann as a replacement should Kylian Mbappe leave next summer. With both Madrid and Liverpool interested in Kylian, it's rumored that Real president Florentino Perez is concerned Liverpool will get in before them.

Perez is also concerned that Liverpool count with the money to pay Mbappe more than the £300,000 a week PSG are currently paying him. Now, Madrid have reportedly lined up a world-record transfer to snare Mbappe, and it’s reported the Spanish giants are weighing up a staggering €400 million (£343m) offer for the 20-year-old.

Mbappe’s contract with Les Parisiens runs through 2022 and the Ligue 1 champions are worried they could lose their starlet for a smaller fee if they don’t agree on a new deal.

Griezmann would be a great replacement for his fellow countryman, but that move doesn’t look so plausible right now. Barcelona are said to be reluctant to sell Antoine given that he just arrived last July from Atletico Madrid.

Even though Griezmann hasn’t had the best tenure with Barcelona so far, he could be a great addition for PSG, who could be on the verge of losing both Neymar and Mbappe in the near future.
