Chelsea are 'serious contenders' to sign Kylian Mbappe

Chelsea are reportedly 'serious contenders' to sign Kylian Mbappe from Paris Saint-Germain.

The 23-year-old signed a new contract with PSG in the summer but feels 'betrayed' by the club's hierarchy, with their relationship 'completely broken'.

Mbappe was linked with a transfer to Real Madrid before re-signing with the Ligue 1 giants.

Spanish publication Marca claims PSG will refuse to sanction a move to Real, bringing in a host of teams from across Europe.

One of those is Chelsea, per Julien Laurens, with new owner Todd Boehly desperate to add a 'superstar' to his team after failing to sign Cristiano Ronaldo from Manchester United.

It's said Mbappe is willing to listen to any team that has a strong sporting and financial project.

Boehly bought Chelsea from Roman Abramovich earlier this year before overseeing a £253 million transfer splurge in the summer.

He sacked Thomas Tuchel last month and replaced him with Graham Potter, who is still unbeaten as Blues boss.

In the summer, Chelsea signed Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang from Barcelona as a short-term replacement for record signing Romelu Lukaku. Lukaku re-joined Inter Milan on loan in the summer after a poor season at Stamford Bridge.

Chelsea aren't the only English side to register interest in Mbappe. The France international has been on Liverpool's radar for a number of years but a move never materialised.

Mbappe held discussions with the Reds when he was a Monaco player, which he revealed in an interview with the Daily Telegraph in May.

"We talked a little bit, but not too much. We talked a little bit," he said.

"I talked to Liverpool because it’s the favourite club of my mum, my mum loves Liverpool. I don’t know why, you will have to ask her!

"It’s a good club and we met them five years ago. When I was in Monaco I met them. It’s a big club."

According to Egyptian journalist Ismael Mahmoud, PSG have shown an interest in Liverpool winger Mohamed Salah which opens up the possibility of football's biggest swap deal.

Mbappe has scored 12 goals in 13 appearances in all competitions this term.

He scored a first half penalty in PSG's 1-1 draw with Benfica on Tuesday night.
