Paper Talk: Shock swap deal talk in £360m Mbappe transfer

Kylian Mbappe Paris Saint-Germain

Kylian Mbappe is a £360m target for Juventus, who could offer Cristiano Ronaldo as part of the deal, while a Liverpool man is on his way out at Anfield, all in the papers.

 

MBAPPE MEGA DEAL

Juventus are apparently plotting a monster £360m move for PSG superstar Kylian Mbappe.

That’s the latest from Italian outlet Tuttosport, (via the Mirror) who suggest Cristiano Ronaldo could go the other way as a makeweight.

The Old Lady are willing to spend £360m on Mbappe, which would be a world record, topping the £200m PSG paid for Neymar.

However, Juve’s wage bill would not be able to accommodate Ronaldo and the Frenchman, who is currently on £360,000-a-week in Paris.

Any deal therefore may well see Ronaldo head to PSG.

Ronaldo was linked with a move to PSG in the summer and agent Jorge Mendes “held talks” with the Ligue 1 winners about the potential for a deal.

 

Mbappe has scored 92 goals in 127 games for PSG and is considered the heir apparent to Ronaldo and Lionel Messi.
