PSG targeting Haaland, Lewandowski as possible Kylian Mbappe replacement
PSG star Kylian Mbappe has made it clear that he wants to leave for Real Madrid. The Spanish giants have even bid €180 million for the Frenchman, but Paris is yet to accept. With just days remaining in the window, time is winding down but if Mbappe does indeed leave PSG, the club plans to target Erling Haaland, Robert Lewandowski, and Richarlison, according to ESPN.
Haaland is the big name that jumps off the page. Chelsea was chasing his signature all summer but he ultimately decided to stay at Dortmund for another season. His agent, Mino Raiola, is close friends with PSG sporting director Leonardo and is keen on a move for his client.
As for Lewandowski, he will likely honor the remainder of his contract with Bayern, but his agent Pini Zahavi has reportedly offered the Pole to the Ligue 1 giants after he made it publically known that he wanted a new challenge after seven seasons with the Bundesliga champions.
As for Richarlison, he’s currently rated at €100 million by Everton and they have zero intention of giving him up at the moment. However, PSG believes they can sway him away from Goodison Park due to his close relationship with Brazil teammate Neymar.
With the transfer deadline on August 31st, it seems unlikely any of these big names will be heading to the Parc des Princes. But based on the interest alone, it’s clear that PSG is looking to add another world-class attacker if Mbappe decides to depart for Madrid.
