Could PSG be ready to make a big splash (again)?

If Kylian Mbappe makes the move to Real Madrid in the coming days, Paris Saint-Germain is prepared to blow the doors off of Bayern Munich or Borussia Dortmund with an offer for either team’s striker.

According to a report from ESPN, PSG has a laser focus on procuring a Bundesliga center-forward should Mbappe bolt:

Paris Saint-Germain will target Bayern Munich’s Robert Lewandowski, Borussia Dortmund’s Erling Haaland, or Everton’s Richarlison should Kylian Mbappe make the move to Real Madrid, sources have told ESPN. PSG have yet to fully agree a deal for the transfer of Mbappe after Madrid’s second offer of €180 million, and the discussions continued on Friday between the two clubs.

Lewandowski’s agent Pini Zahavi was in Paris on Monday and has offered his client and discussed the possibility of the arrival of the Polish striker in the French capital, sources told ESPN. Lewandowski wants a new challenge after seven successful years at Bayern but he still has two years left on his contract. It is highly unlikely that the German club will agree to let the 33-year-old go although PSG would be ready to offer a huge amount of money to attract him.

It is a similar issue with Haaland. On Friday, Leonardo spoke to Mino Raiola, Haaland’s agent, who is in favour of a move from Dortmund for his client this summer.

ESPN also said that PSG believes that a €200 million bid for Haaland would convince Borussia Dortmund to let him leave right now. There was no word on what PSG thinks it would take to get Lewandowski. Knowing that Bayern Munich has been thoroughly unwilling to even discuss a sale of Lewandowski at this point, PSG must be aware that it would also have to dig really deep into its coffers for the Polish Hitman.

For what it is worth, both Bayern Munich and Borussia Dortmund have repeatedly stated that they will not sell their respective strikers during this summer transfer window.

So...

“Come on, come on, love me for the money, come on, come on, listen to the money talk”
