Paris Saint-Germain are reportedly eyeing Robert Lewandowski, Christian Haaland and Richarlison if they manage to lure Kylian Mbappe away from Real Madrid.
The mbappe transfer is a rumor that has been floating around for a while. PSG have reportedly set their sights on Lewandowski, Haaland, and Richarlison if Mbappe joins Real Madrid.
According to ESPN, if Kylian Mbappe joins Real Madrid, Paris Saint-Germain would pursue Bayern Munich’s Robert Lewandowski, Borussia Dortmund’s Erling Haaland, or Everton’s Richarlison.
After Madrid’s second offer of €180 million, PSG have still to completely agree on a contract for Mbappe’s transfer, and talks between the two clubs resumed on Friday.

However, the Parisians, particularly sports director Leonardo, are already working on a few targets to replace Mbappe if he leaves this summer, with a bid for a possible replacement arriving only after the Mbappe transfer is finalized.

According to ESPN, Lewandowski’s agent, Pini Zahavi, was in Paris on Monday and offered his client and explored the prospect of the Polish striker arriving in the French city. After seven great years with Bayern, Lewandowski is looking for a fresh challenge, although he still has two years remaining on his contract. The German club is unlikely to agree to allow the 33-year-old go, despite PSG’s willingness to pay a large sum of money to lure him away.
Haaland has a similar problem. On Friday, Leonardo talked with Haaland’s agent, Mino Raiola, who is keen for his client to leave Dortmund this summer. Raiola and Leonardo are good friends who worked together on Gianluigi Donnarumma’s summer move from AC Milan to PSG.
Haaland, on the other hand, is not wanted by Dortmund. PSG, on the other hand, will try to persuade the German to let the Norwegian attacker leave. Haaland, 20, has a €75 million release clause that may rise to €100 million next year, and PSG think that an offer of about €200 million might persuade Dortmund to sell him immediately, according to ESPN sources.
Haaland’s salary and agency fees would be prohibitively costly, but PSG believes they have the financial resources to lure him to the Parc des Princes.
PSG and Leonardo Richarlison of Everton is also a huge admirer of Mauricio Pochettino. His agent is also in Paris, and despite Everton manager Rafael Benitez’s assurance that the Brazilian would not be transferred this summer, PSG are convinced that the 24-year-old can be enticed to the city.
Richarlison is eager on a transfer to PSG and has a fantastic connection with fellow Brazil star Neymar, according to insiders. It may take a €100 million deal to get him away from Merseyside.
Mbappe’s move would allow PSG to improve their team in other areas as well as as a striker. After the departure of Layvin Kurzawa to Lyon, AC Milan left-back Theo Hernandez, who was called up to the France team this week, is a possibility. Hernandez has been Serie A’s finest left-back for the last two seasons, and a move would cost approximately €50 million.
PSG may eventually make a bid to Rennes for Eduardo Camavinga in midfield. The 18-year-old prodigy’s contract expires in a year, and he is eager to join PSG. Leonardo has already talked with his Rennes opponent Florian Maurice, who was a teammate of Leonardo’s at PSG. Camavinga is valued at approximately €30 million.
