PSG is clear that Kylian Mbappé’s continuity is very complicated, and despite recent reports, the player is reluctant to stay in Paris. The Frenchman understands that he has to take the definitive leap in his career and knows that PSG cannot offer him the same as Real Madrid.
Meanwhile, the sports management is working on finding a replacement, and Antoine Griezmann continues to be the first option. Last summer, they tempted the player with a last-minute proposal, but Atlético Madrid ultimately rejected the €40 million offer, considering it insufficient.
Now, months later, the position would have changed, and the urgency of the current situation forces them to move quickly. To this, we would have to add that the operation would have the approval of Luis Enrique, as the Asturian has been one of the precursors of this interest.
For its part, Atlético Madrid does not rule out his departure, despite the fact that they would clash head-on with the opinion of Simeone, who considers the Frenchman a fundamental piece for the functioning of the team.
At the moment, the club’s coffers are not in the best shape, and an income of that magnitude would help to cement the economic future of the entity. In addition, considering that Griezmann is already 32 years old, it could be considered a smart sale over time.
In any case, it remains to be seen if the €60 million offer is enough, or if, on the contrary, PSG is forced to raise the proposal.
