Chelsea have reportedly joined Real Madrid in the race to sign Kylian Mbappe from Paris Saint- Germain (PSG). As per Marca (via Sport Witness), the Premier League side are ready to splash the cash to sign Mbappe if he would be interested.
The forward’s new deal at the Ligue 1 club is set to expire in 2024, thus giving him the liberty to speak to other clubs from January that year. The Frenchman had his previous contract expiring this year and was touted to join Real Madrid on a free transfer.
However, he penned a new deal at the end of the 2021-22 season and stayed put at the Parc des Princes. Los Blancos still remain interested in signing the forward, and Mbappe has not closed the doors either. The former AS Monaco man has started the season in prolific fashion, scoring 10 goals in eight matches in all competitions so far.
