Arsenal Eyes Kylian Mbappe: Insights from David Ornstein


David Ornstein mentioned that Arsenal is one of the teams excited about the possibility of signing Kylian Mbappe this summer. Kylian Mbappe wants to leave Paris Saint-Germain at the end of the season. Which is catching the attention of many top teams worldwide. His contract with PSG will end this summer, making him a free agent and potentially setting a new record for the highest-paid free agent in football history.

Race for Mbappe: Real Madrid in the Lead, Arsenal Eager

In the race to sign Kylian Mbappe, Arsenal seems to be the team with less chance of success. Real Madrid is seen as the top choice according to David Ornstein in an interview with NBC Sports. However, he suggested that many Premier League teams would love to sign him if they had the opportunity. People wonder if Mbappe will consider Premier League teams like Arsenal, Chelsea, Manchester City, Liverpool, or Manchester United instead.

“The truth is the finances don’t work for them. They would love to do it. They would be able to do it, in terms of their own ownership. Just look at Newcastle, they could afford to do it. But under these Profit and Sustainability Rules that the likes of Everton have come a cropper with, they just cannot afford to pay the salary. So it would require Kylian Mbappe to drop his salary demands, or maybe find the money from somewhere else to pay him in different means. But the reality is the full expectation is that he will sign for Real Madrid.” said David Ornstein

Every Premier League team especially Arsenal will be careful about getting too involved in the competition to sign Kylian Mbappe. His main concern, along with his agents, will be getting the best deal for him, which includes a good amount of money. If Mbappe is really focused on joining Real Madrid and they’re ready to take him, negotiations with other teams will aim at getting a better deal at Madrid.

Even though Mbappe will be free to join any team, he’ll still get a lot of money in his contract. Premier League teams will need to spend a big part of their budget on his salary, bonuses, and signing fees.
