Who will Mbappé be Replaced by? PSG is Undergoing a Difficult Change

Compared to Paris Saint-Germain, Kylian Mbappé’s future appears to be far brighter.
The Qatari-owned team’s ambition to rule European soccer has suffered yet another serious setback with Mbappé’s departure from PSG at the end of the current campaign, following in the footsteps of former star colleagues Neymar and Lionel Messi.
Because PSG is unclear, Mbappé will be pursued by the biggest teams in Europe, with Real Madrid appearing to be leading the chase.

The cash-rich club’s next moves will come under close examination.
Who will take Mbappé’s 25-year-old place? With the way that Mbappé’s goals have covered up so many holes, how will PSG manage without him? How does head coach Luis Enrique get ready for the remainder of current and the upcoming season?
At his pre-game news conference on Friday, the eve of his team’s French league game at Nantes, an irate Enrique did his best to avoid answering questions. “I won’t comment until the parties concerned have commented,” and “No player is bigger than the club,” were among the stoic one-line answers he gave.

He said, “I don’t have any information to give you on this subject,” to a reporter who made one more attempt in Spanish.

The French league, which is negotiating the next round of TV rights with broadcasters through 2029, is not going to be happy with Mbappe’s departure either.
With his departure, Mbappé’s story, a local youngster who ended up at his hometown club and helped restore its damaged reputation, will come to an end.
In June 2011, Mbappé was 12 years old and a player for his local AS Bondy club in the Paris suburbs when PSG was acquired by Qatari owners QSI. The team was suffering from years of soccer-related violence, which had killed two PSG supporters in the area of Parc des Princes stadium. They had also had dismal on-field performance, having not won a league title since 1994.

The unpleasant environment of the stadium was replaced with cushioned seats and well-known figures like Beyoncé, Michael Jordan, and Jay-Z after QSI arrived. PSG went on to win nine more league titles, setting a record for the nation.
Mbappé and Neymar paid a combined 402 million euros ($433 million) to join in 2017. They contributed to PSG becoming the largest team in France.
However, despite a plethora of high-profile players such as Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Thiago Silva, and Angel Di Maria, as well as a whirlwind of coaching changes, QSI has not been able to secure a Champions League trophy. The team bus was emblazoned with the club’s motto, “Dream Bigger.” Despite this, PSG only made it to one final, falling 1-0 to Bayern Munich in the pandemic-shortened 2020 competition.

What can PSG accomplish now without any of these talents if they were unable to win the competition with them all these years? Will Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al Thani, the emir of Qatar, become impatient and end the project altogether? When the unhappy supporters eventually get tired of the current administration and turn on club president Nasser al-Khelaifi, they will already be irritated at having to leave Parc des Princes.
Things are still under control for the time being, and PSG has a “B” plan in place.
PSG began to slightly change their focus by adding more French players, such as Bradley Barcola, Ousmane Dembélé, and Randal Kolo Muani, and they also accelerated the development of academy players, such as 17-year-old Warren Zaïre-Emery, maybe anticipating Mbappé’s departure. Ethan, Mbappé’s younger brother, 17, has also broken

Although there is a noticeable change from chasing famous names and more opportunity for local youth players than previously, results can decline.
Mbappé’s goals—41 from the previous season, 31 so far this year, and a club-record 243 overall—have concealed serious shortcomings in the midfield and defense. He has saved his teammates so many times. It does not appear that the other forwards’ statistics will indicate the same outcome.

The season-best total for Kolo Muani is 15 league goals; Dembélé has 12, and the 21-year-old Barcola is inexperienced. Goncalo Ramos, a striker, is a backup attacker for Benfica in Portugal, where he scored 19 goals in the previous campaign.Once more, in order to remain competitive, PSG will probably need to bring in a top striker.

Here are a few potential prospects for PSG to consider:
Napoli’s Victor Osimhen
The striker from Nigeria, who is the same age as Mbappé, seems to be the best choice. Osimhen is a quick, strong, deft finisher, and he does a great job with his back to the goal. With his 26 league goals, Napoli won the Serie A championship the previous year. He played one season for Lille before joining Napoli in 2020, therefore he is familiar with the French division. His contract is valid until 2026.

Liverpool’s Mohamed Salah
The dynamic forward from Egypt is contracted through 2025; if he plays next season, he will be 32. Although he probably won’t have many more golden years, he can still score well and pass well. Although he has scored 200 goals for Liverpool, his own goal total may match Juergen Klopp’s departure at the end of the campaign. If Salah leaves, it might go to the Saudi league instead of PSG.
Manchester United’s Marcus Rashford

Erik ten Haag, the England forward, has shown little interest in keeping the 26-year-old forward at Old Trafford. With just five goals in 29 games, Rashford’s form has declined from a career-high 30 in 59 games the previous season. A transfer to PSG might be beneficial for
