PSG transfer news: Why Kylian Mbappe’s move to Real Madrid is now in doubt


Ligalive reported a few days ago that the France international could join Real Madrid next summer if PSG are unable to defeat Barcelona in the Champions League round of 16 next year.

Thomas Tuchel’s departure from Paris Saint-Germain has put Kylian Mbappe’s potential move to Real Madrid in doubt, per AS.

Ligalive reported a few days ago that the France international could join Los Blancos next summer if PSG are unable to defeat Barcelona in the Champions League round of 16 next year. His desire to win Europe’s elite club competition was cited as the reason behind the striker’s potential move to Spain.

All of that seems to have changed with the sacking of Tuchel. The former Borussia Dortmund boss was shown the door earlier today by PSG and reports claim that the Ligue 1 champions are set to replace the German manager with ex-Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino.

And AS are reporting that PSG’s higher-ups have hired the Argentine with the assurance that Mbappe will be staying at the club beyond next summer, thereby rubbishing any rumors linking the striker with a move to Zinedine Zidane’s side at the end of the ongoing campaign.

The Spanish news publication insists it ‘could be suggested’ that firing Tuchel and replacing him with Pochettino is a tactic from PSG sporting director Leonardo to catch Los Blancos off guard, who didn’t contemplate the departure of the German in their attempts to lure Mbappe to Madrid.
