Mbappe was heavily linked with a summer switch to Real Madrid.
PSG have started their preparation to find a replacement for Kylian Mbappe. Tottenham Hotspur forward Richarlison looks like a potential replacement for the Frenchman.
Mbappe’s contract will expire in June 2025 but his long-term future at the Parc des Princes has been speculated in recent months.
The French international has denied reports claiming that he is keen to leave PSG in January and that he feels ‘betrayed’ by the club after promises were not fulfilled by the PSG board.
The Daily Mail, via Marca, claims that PSG will consider a move to sign Richarlison as his replacement.
The 25-year-old Brazil international, who has been called up to Tite’s 26-man squad for the World Cup, has only been with Spurs since July following his £60m transfer from Everton.
The report also adds that Richarlison would be open to swapping Spurs for the French capital, as well as reuniting with close friend Neymar.
The Ligue 1 giants are said to have been closely monitoring Richarlison for some time and they even considered moving for the Nova Venecia-born forward over the summer amid uncertainty over the future of Mbappe.
The PSG forward was heavily linked with a summer switch to Real Madrid, who were hoping to lure the Frenchman to the Santiago Bernabeu upon the expiration of his contract.
Richarlison was slowly integrated into Antonio Conte’s first-team plans at the start of this season, but he has now scored 13 appearances across all tournaments, including eight starts.
Apart from Richarlison, PSG have also been linked with a number of other attack-minded players including AC Milan’s Rafael Leao, Napoli’s Khvicha Kvaratskhelia and Palmeiras’ Endrick.
