‘Fantastic Deal’ Striker compared to Pele is now willing to join Chelsea for the 2023/24 campaign, Boehly loves him
Kylian Mbappe’s potential move to Chelsea has taken an intriguing turn as the French striker is reportedly open to joining the club on loan for the 2023/24 season. However, he is not inclined to make a longer-term commitment to Stamford Bridge.
According to SPORT in Spain, Chelsea is preparing to make an offer for Mbappe, with discussions being facilitated by Todd Boehly, one of the club’s owners. Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) has put Mbappe up for sale as they believe he has an agreement to join Real Madrid on a free transfer next summer, when his contract expires.
Given the delicate situation, PSG is cautious about conducting business with a direct Champions League competitor, which is where Chelsea comes into play. The report from SPORT indicates that negotiations have been ongoing, and a staggering price tag of €250 million (£215 million) has been mentioned for the transfer.
In a surprising development, Mbappe is reportedly open to the idea of a loan move to Chelsea for the upcoming 2023/24 season. However, this situation presents challenges for both clubs, as a season-long loan might not be an ideal solution for PSG or Chelsea.
Todd Boehly’s active involvement in negotiations underscores Chelsea’s eagerness to secure Mbappe’s signature. Although Mauricio Pochettino’s name has not been as prominently featured in this transfer saga, his previous productive working relationship with Mbappe during his time as PSG manager could make him an appealing prospect for the Chelsea squad.
As the situation unfolds, it remains to be seen whether a loan move for Mbappe will materialize and how this unique transfer saga will ultimately play out.
