A report from Spanish newspaper AS states PSG are confident of retaining Kylian Mbappe despite the dismissal of Thomas Tuchel.
There’s no denying that Real Madrid have suffered a fall from grace after winning several Champions League titles over the last decade but the La Liga giants are still a major draw for the biggest players in the world.
Los Blancos signed Eden Hazard from Chelsea not so long ago and while the Belgian has been plagued by injuries, he is still one of the best wingers in the game.
Real Madrid might be an attractive destination but AS claims that PSG are still confident of holding onto Mbappe.
Their report is based on the fact that the Spanish outfit is unlikely to be able to afford the player that moved to Paris from AS Monaco for €180 million in 2017.
There are doubts that Zidane has anywhere near that kind of cash to sign Mbappe.
Liverpool are also understood to be long-time admirers of the French superstar but they too will struggle to stump up the fee required to sign him permanently.
In his three years at Real Madrid, Mbappe has been directly involved in 161 goals in 142 appearances which is 1.13 goal contributions per game and is comparable to the 1.23 goal or assist rate that Lionel Messi has plundered at during his career.
