L'Equipe: Mbappe demands transfer

L’Equipe claim that Kylian Mbappé told Monaco he wants a transfer, with Real Madrid, Barcelona, Manchester City and PSG options.

Juventus had been linked with the 18-year-old sensation, but baulked at the price-tag of approximately €180m.

If the story is true, then Barcelona have to be the main contenders just hours after Neymar formally told Barcelona he wanted to leave.

Neymar is said to have undergone a medical today in Oporto, accompanied by representatives from Paris Saint-Germain.

Barcelona made it clear they’ll only sell for the full €220m release clause, which would give them the money needed for Mbappé.

Real Madrid had been closest to the French talent, but would only pay such a huge sum if Karim Benzema or Gareth Bale moved on first.

Manchester City are the other candidates for the winger, who scored 26 goals with 14 assists in 44 competitive games for Monaco last season.

PSG would only be an option if they failed to get Neymar from Barcelona.

All of this involves Juventus to a degree, as Paulo Dybala has been suggested as a Barcelona target if Neymar completes his transfer to Paris.
