La Gazzetta dello Sport confirms Napoli star Victor Osimhen is PSG’s primary transfer target if Kylian Mbappé leaves this summer, while ex-Serie A star Paolo Di Canio blames the ‘shameful’ France superstar.

Mbappé has openly admitted that he’s planning to leave PSG on a free transfer at the end of his contract in June 2024, but the Ligue 1 giants want to sell him this summer if he doesn’t sign a new deal with the club.

Sunday’s printed edition of La Gazzetta dello Sport confirms Osimhen will be PSG’s primary target if Mbappé leaves.

Journalist Maurizio Nicita wrote on page six of the pink paper that Napoli have already rejected a €100m bid from PSG and have set their asking price to €180m.

Mbappé’s summer sale will further strengthen PSG’s budget, potentially allowing them to meet Napoli’s asking price.

The Serie A champions still hope to extend with Osimhen beyond 2025 and are said to be on good terms with the striker’s agent Roberto Calenda.

According to the report, Lille forward Jonathan David is Napoli’s primary target of Osimhen leaves.

Meantime, ex-Lazio and West Ham star Di Canio openly blamed Mbappé during his latest interview with Sky Sport Italia on Saturday.

“PSG have put themselves in this situation because they coddled him, now they must limit the damage and make a decision,” said the ex-striker.

“We can judge PSG’s errors but, I am saying it openly, also the indecency of the lad. Indecency, that’s what it is. He took advantage of this situation a year ago and now he’s doing the same, threatening to leave on a free transfer next year.

“It’s an absolute shame that Mbappbe behaves this way after earning €200-300m even if everyone always tries to earn more without hypocrisy. Then there are the fans, the club and the honorability which you can’t buy even with €2 billion and he is not respecting any of these.”
