The PSG transfer market is in full swing, and rumors of possible takeovers do not stop. From the imminent departure of Mbappé to the search for new midfielders, the Parisian club are gearing up for an exciting pre-season full of movement and anticipation.
First of all, star striker Kylian Mbappe is determined to join Real Madrid and both the player and the white club seem to be clear that the move is coming soon. Although PSG have yet to reveal any public details, journalists close to the club say that Mbappe already has a pre-contract with Real Madrid and that the transfer will be the most expensive in football history.
On the other hand, PSG are gearing up for a future without Mbappe and English striker Harry Kane is their priority. Although it was thought that Kane would move to Bayern Munich, PSG made significant progress in negotiations and optimism grew within the French club. PSG President Nasser Al Khelaifi held meetings with the player’s entourage to present the team’s project and persuade him to join the club.
Meanwhile, PSG remain attentive to the situation with another striker, Rasmus Heilund, who is interested in Manchester United and can compete with the French team. According to Fabrizio Romano, Atalanta are asking for $60 million.

Atlético de Madrid are also keeping Marco Verratti in sight to boost their midfield. However, negotiations between PSG and Al-Hilal are progressing quickly and the Saudi club could take the Italian midfielder. Verratti has made it clear that he has no intention of renewing his contract with PSG, which opened the door for him to leave.
As for Mbappe’s future, Saudi team Al-Hilal made an exceptional offer of 700 million euros to sign the striker, but he refused the offer. Mbappe appears to have an agreement in principle with Real Madrid and his arrival at the Santiago Bernabéu is expected to happen at some point either this year or the 2024-25 season.
