Kylian Mbappe’s move to Real Madrid has become next big transfer saga of the summer after Harry Kane’s commitment to Tottenham was confirmed.
Mbappe, who signed for PSG in 2017 for an astronomical fee of £166million, has blossomed at the French giants since his move – scoring 133 goals in 174 appearances at the Parc des Princes.
Alongside Neymar, the two have formed a formidable partnership by winning everything in their path bar the UEFA Champions League.
However, with this in mind, Mbappe has stated his desire to leave the French club – despite the signings of Lionel Messi, Sergio Ramos and Gianluigi Donnarumma.
Express Sport takes a look at five potential players that could join PSG if Mbappe decides to move to Real – the team he has supported since he was a child – with the supposed £170m they could receive.

The most obvious arrival on the list – Paul Pogba seems set to join PSG on a free transfer next summer given his Manchester United contract is set to run out in 10 months time.
Pogba, who was born in the Paris region, has often displayed flashes of individual brilliance – although many times he has gone missing, too.
Boasting only a Europa League and a Carabao Cup in his second spell in Manchester, Pogba will be keen to win the Champions League as he approaches his 29th birthday.
And with Messi, Ramos, Neymar and Donnarumma alongside him, it seems a transfer waiting to happen – especially as he will be extremely affordable by using the Mbappe money to lure him with a lucrative signing fee.

Martial is another French-born Manchester United player who could join Les Parisiens.
Despite obviously not having the talent that Mbappe has, Martial is still a very good player on his day.
That day may not come around often, but in a team with insane attacking talent, his output of goals and assists would inevitably increase.
PSG still need a forward, and he is an achievable target – add this to his versatility across the front three, and he could be a great asset in the French capital.

Sadio Mane/Mohamed Salah
The chalk and cheese pair seemed inseparable prior to lockdown as Liverpool won absolutely everything in their sight – with Mane and Salah as two of their best players.
Yet, following the pandemic, Liverpool haven’t hit the heights that they achieved prior, with Mane especially faltering compared to Salah.
With both of their contracts expiring in 2023, Liverpool will have to act fast to tie their men up to new deals if they are to keep the deadly duo.
But, with PSG’s riches and a burning need for a versatile attacker after Mbappe’s departure, we could see one of the pair in a PSG shirt this summer or next if the money is enough to tempt John Henry.
Perhaps the most realistic attacker on the list, Richarlison has been linked with filling Mbappe’s vacancy in the French side’s forward line.
The Brazilian, 24, has just entered his fourth season at Goodison Park, staking his claim once more as Everton’s most valuable player.
Having played 32 games for Brazil – where he has made a great friendship with Neymar – the winger would be a superb signing for Mauricio Pochettino.
And with years to develop and a brilliant work rate, his off-the-ball antics could supply Messi and Neymar with even more goals to fire Les Rouge et Bleu to continental glory.
