Kylian Mbappe ‘demands PSG release clause’ amid Liverpool transfer links

Kylian Mbappe has reportedly demanded a release clause be inserted in any new Paris Saint-Germain contract he signs in case a top club comes calling.

Mbappe has been strongly linked with a move to Liverpool in recent months, but also remains high on Real Madrid's transfer wishlist.

The World Cup winner's current contract with PSG runs until the summer of 2022, but the newly-crowned Ligue 1 champions are looking to extend this.

Mbappe appears keen to sign fresh terms, rather than force through a move elsewhere.

But the Frenchman reportedly wants the ability to get out of his contract, should the right club want to snap him up.

According to Spanish publication AS, Mbappe has Real Madrid in mind, and wants to provide the La Liga giants with an opportunity to sign him, should they wish to.

But the release clause isn't limited to Real Madrid, and could in theory be triggered by Liverpool, who have been linked with the forward in recent months.

Transfer speculation first emerged amid claims Los Blancos were keen on signing Liverpool's Sadio Mane in the summer window.

It has been reported that Liverpool would use the £150million from the Mane deal to fund a mega-money bid for Mbappe.

The 21-year-old has kept his cards close to his chest as speculation has mounted, but recently spoke out on social media, seemingly playing down a transfer away.

Mbappe tweeted to his 4.1million followers: "Everyone is talking, but nobody knows… MISS MY TEAM."
