Real Madrid seems to want to strengthen themselves this summer with Kylian Mbappe. The Spanish record champion would have made an offer of 160 million euros on Tuesday for the star attacker of Paris Saint-Germain, Marca, L’Équipe and RMC Sport report.
It is not yet clear how Paris Saint-Germain has reacted to Real Madrid’s offer. According to the French RMC Sport, the opening offer of ‘De Koninklijke’ would have been rejected. However, various media from Spain report that PSG is still considering the proposal.
According to Marca, Real Madrid would like to strike now because Mbappe has decided not to extend his expiring contract with Paris Saint-Germain. The arrival of Lionel Messi to Paris would have played a role in this. However, Mbappe has never made it a secret that Real Madrid is his dream club. Messi was taken over from FC Barcelona two weeks ago on a free transfer.
Real Madrid’s bid is striking as PSG chairman Nasser Al Khelaifi emphasized that Messi’s presentation has “no excuses” for Mbappe to leave the Paris club. “Kylian is a Parisian. He is very combative,” said Al Khelaifi, “He said he wanted a competitive team. Now there is no one more competitive than us. So he has no reason to do anything but stay.”
