Kylian Mbappe to Real Madrid
The only other transfer that can potentially match Haaland’s for sheer status is Kylian Mbappe’s proposed move to Real Madrid. It was once floated that the LaLiga giants could sign both players, but Haaland’s switch to City has somewhat quashed that possibility. However, their move for Mbappe is very much still in the works.
But Mbappe’s future is still yet to be resolved and reports of a two-year extension with PSG were reportedly premature. The 23-year-old has a huge decision to make but a free transfer to join Champions League finalists Real would no doubt create a similar level of hysteria as Haaland’s move, whilst earning the Frenchman a significant pay rise.
Romelu Lukaku to PSG
PSG have done all they can to keep Mbappe at Parc des Princes, but the matter is firmly out of their hands as the player decides his fate. Should the World Cup winner decide to move on, Romelu Lukaku may offer a tempting alternative for the Ligue 1 champions.
Lukaku’s future at Chelsea is uncertain after struggling to impress at Stamford Bridge since his £97.5m move. The Belgian, 28, has a proven record of scoring in Europe and may welcome the chance to start fresh elsewhere after losing his place in the side under Thomas Tuchel. The only question is whether Chelsea would be willing to cut their losses on the ex-Inter Milan ace.
