Todd Boehly eyeing move for PSG superstar as marquee signing at Chelsea: Reports

Chelsea co-owner Todd Boehly is keen on making Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) superstar Kylian Mbappe his marquee signing, journalist Pete O’Rourke told GiveMeSport.

It has been claimed that the French superstar is keen to leave PSG as soon as possible after being betrayed by his club. Although hesitant, the Parisians could reportedly enter into negotiations if a £300m-plus bid is made for the 2018 world champions.

Reports in the media today that our owners are seriously considering signing Kylian Mbappe, financially it’s not a problem. I know a lot of Chelsea fans aren’t thrilled with his behavior at PSG, but as a player he’s one of the best players in the world.

According to O’Rourke, Boehly, who has already spent over £250million since taking over this summer, could be looking to bring Mbappe to Chelsea in hopes of shaping his authority in London. He said:

“I think Chelsea will be one of those clubs to be associated with Mbappe. I’m sure Todd Boehly would love to do a marquee deal like Mbappe just to really make his mark on the club.”

Mbappe, who was heavily linked with a move to Real Madrid at the end of the 2021/22 season, signed a three-year deal with PSG in May 2022. Since joining the club in 2017, the France international has made 231 appearances at the club, scoring 183 goals and claiming 89 assists in all competitions.

PSG’s Kylian Mbappe could be a dream signing for Chelsea but a deal seems unlikely

Premier League giants Chelsea lack someone who can improve when the odds are stacked against the team. Mbappe, who has produced numerous key performances for Les Parisiens since 2017, seems like the perfect man for the job.

Mbappe would really be the superstar Boehly is looking for. It’s crazy how that could be possible for Chelsea lmao

Signing him could fix the Blues’ goal-scoring woes for good, but the PSG hierarchy have made it clear they have no intention of letting their superstar go. Ahead of his side’s Champions League clash against Benfica, sporting director Luis Campos stressed that Mbappe has no intention of leaving. He told Canal+ (via EuroSport):

“There are rumors every day. I’m with Kylian every day and he’s never spoken to me about leaving in January. Not even to the President. It’s not a statement from the player but information which I therefore deny: Kylian Mbappe never spoke to me about leaving PSG in January. We never talked about that. It’s very clear.”

Unless things change drastically in the coming months, the French outfit are unlikely to make Mbappe available for a transfer, ending Boehly’s alleged dream of signing him.
