Kylian Mbappe's team explore Liverpool and Arsenal moves as Real Madrid deal hits 'stumbling block'

Kylian Mbappe's transfer to Real Madrid has hit a stumbling block with a move to Arsenal and Liverpool now being explored, it has been claimed.

On Saturday it was reported in Le Parisien that Mbappe had decided to join Real Madrid once his contract with Paris Saint-Germain expires this summer.

ESPN subsequently corroborated the report, adding that while the Frenchman's wages are expected to be half of what he earns at PSG, Mbappe grew up idolising Bernabéu legends Zinedine Zidane and Cristiano Ronaldo and has always dreamt of playing for Madrid.

However, it has now emerged that that move has hit a stumbling block.

According to the Independent, while Madrid are negotiating a contract with Mbappe, the two quarters are struggling to agree on a wage package.

Though it is now expected even at PSG that the 25-year-old will go to the Bernabeu, the publication claims an agreement remains someway off.

In turn, Mbappe's representatives are said to have explored moves to Liverpool and Arsenal.

It has been claimed however that neither Premier League outfit wants to break their wage structure to sign the France skipper.

Meanwhile, PSG still reportedly have an offer on the table for Mbappe but it is understood not to be a significant increase on his current deal.

The French giants wish Mbappe to stay, but do not want to be held to ransom, given the club are looking to go in a new strategic direction.

Mbappe looked set to sign for Madrid in May 2022 only to make a a dramatic U-turn and put pen to paper a new two-year deal at PSG.

However, his relationship with the Ligue 1 side soured last summer after he told the club he would not be triggering a clause in that deal that would extend his stay in Paris until the summer of 2025.

That means the attacker will become a free agent in the summer of 2024.
