PSG's summer transfer market will undoubtedly revolve around Kylian Mbappe, his future, and his replacement. In this sense, clues have already begun to emerge and multiply. If the departure of the French genius becomes increasingly likely, the leaders of the capital club seem to be preparing for it.

Kylian Mbappe's move to Real Madrid seems closer than ever. In fact, at the end of this 2023-2024 season, the love story between Paris Saint-Germain and its all-time top scorer could be coming to an end.

At least that's what the latest rumors from the press across Europe claim. In this regard, the capital club will have to address the issue to find the best possible replacement.

It is in this context that the name of Rafael Leao has been insistently mentioned in the Parisian skies, with the latest information coming from Italy and specifically from our colleagues at Corriere dello Sport.

However, the Portuguese is not the only one mentioned for PSG's summer market in 2024. According to The Telegraph, the name of Victor Osimhen would also appear on the list of main targets to replace Kylian Mbappe at Paris Saint-Germain.

Competition, price, and a false target

If PSG wants to secure the services of Victor Osimhen, it will have to pay 130 million euros, the amount of his buyout clause, according to the mentioned source. Indeed, negotiations for the 25-year-old forward could prove challenging with Napoli's president, Aurelio De Laurentiis.

Paris Saint-Germain, through Luis Campos, will have to be convincing to the Nigerian, who could also be of interest to Chelsea. At least that's what our British colleagues claim, who also mention the possibility of Marcus Rashford. The Manchester United forward would not be in the plans of PSG's leaders, despite some rumors surrounding this matter.
