Kylian Mbappe will choose between one of three teams if he opts to leave Monaco this summer, according to a PSG coach.
Mbappe has been courted by Europe’s elite sides so far in this transfer window, as well as Liverpool.
The striker will have the pick of almost any club he wants if he chooses to leave Monaco, which is by no means a foregone conclusion.
Luis Fernandez, former PSG captain and current youth academy sporting director, believes the 18-year-old would choose between Real Madrid, PSG and Manchester City if he does depart.
“Kylian’s issue is very difficult,” Fernandez told Cadena Ser. “He did not play on Sunday, and there is a lot of talk and rumours, but you can see that it [a move to PSG] is not an easy task.
“There are four or five players that need to leave PSG due to financial fair play.
“I think he has two or three teams in his mind which are Real, PSG and perhaps City. City have a good friend of his, Benjamin Mendy, who has gone there [from Monaco].
“I do not think he has taken a decision. He did not play last Sunday because he is in a situation where he is considering whether to stay or to leave.
“But Kylian is 18 and must take the decision with his family and entourage.
“Staying at Monaco for another season is not a bad option for him.
“I can see him staying for another year. He wants to play in a big club and they have started the campaign well and already possess a good team.
“He wants to join a competitive team, but in Monaco he can continue to improve, to progress and not have the pressure of delivering straight away that he would have if he joins PSG now.”
