Reports have claimed that Chelsea have been back in touch with PSG over potentially signing Kylian Mbappe.

According to i, the Blues made calls about the sensational transfer over the weekend, following up on prior efforts.

It seems as if Mbappe is going to be on the move one way or another this summer, altering the landscape of football going forwards.

Whoever secures the ‘world-class’ player will have their fortunes changed for the time he is with them.

It has been claimed today that Chelsea are one of the sides who have been interested in a deal, with only the elite being able to afford a transfer of this magnitude.

The report has claimed that the Blues are one of three Premier League clubs who have been mentioned as a potentially interested party.

It went on to state that any deal this summer could end up being a loan, with the likelihood being that he eventually ends up at Real Madrid in 12 months’ time.

With that possibility, the issue of financial fair play could be avoided, and Chelsea may be able to launch the sensational offer.

There is an expectation right now that the France international ends up spending a year in Saudi Arabia, where mouth-watering money has been up for grabs for whoever has made the move there.

However, the reported wages Mbappe would be on would blow everything out of the water that the likes of Kalidou Koulibaly and Edouard Mendy are set to earn out there.

With no European football to offer next season, it is unfortunately unlikely Chelsea find themselves near the front of the queue to sign the forward.
