Paris Saint-Germain forward Kylian Mbappe wants an exit clause to feature in any new contract with the French champions, according to a report.
Mbappe, who had already shown immense promise at former club Monaco, earned a big-money move to Paris in the summer of 2017 and he has since gone from strength to strength.
Indeed, he scored 30 goals in 33 games this season before the campaign was prematurely ended due to the global pandemic and PSG were handed the Ligue 1 title on a points-per-game basis.
However, Mbappe has two years left on his current deal and it is now unclear how much football he will get to play in that time, with all sport banned in France until September at the earliest.
Recent reports have indicated that PSG have been trying to tie the striker down to a new deal for a number of months and according to AS, Mbappe wants a guarantee that he will be able to leave Paris if the opportunity arises.
Real Madrid are among only a few clubs who will be able to finance a move for the 21-year-old, who is expected to become one of the favourites for the Ballon d’Or in the coming seasons.
Madrid are said to hold a long-term interest in the Frenchman, while Liverpool have also been tentatively linked in recent months.
However, it has been claimed that Liverpool will scale back their spending in the next transfer window given the current circumstances and uncertainties.
In other news, Liverpool have reportedly asked for more time in their hunt for RB Leipzig attacker Timo Werner.
Werner, 24, has made no secret of his admiration for Reds boss Jurgen Klopp, who is said to be keen on bringing his fellow German to Anfield.
