However, the situation remains uncertain as Manchester City has yet to agree to a transfer and hopes to retain the player, according to Fabrizio Romano. No specific price has been set, but estimates suggest the deal could exceed €83 million, according to journalist Ben Jacobs. PSG is pushing hard for Álvarez and is expected to make a substantial offer soon, according to PSG Inside Actus. The club may even drop their pursuit of Bernardo Silva to avoid a conflict with Manchester City.

Sport Bild recently published an exclusive interview with the future Real Madrid player, where he discussed the upcoming Euro 2024, which starts this Friday. Mbappé is motivated and eager to make an impact, stating, “This is my first normal Euro. In 2021, the tournament was held in many countries, so the feeling was different. I can’t wait for it to start. We are ready, hungry for success, and know what we have to do.”

Vinicius to PSG, a Real Possibility
