Kylian Mbappe saga: Real Madrid’s request, PSG’s rude response and the promise of 2017

Kylian Mbappe-PSG

Real Madrid are reportedly working on a deal to sign Kylian Mbappe from Paris Saint Germain and the La Liga giants have already had a massive offer of around €160 million turned down for the French international.

According to reports, Real Madrid have now asked permission from PSG to speak to the player regarding a summer move.

Real Madrid president Florentino Perez has revealed that PSG have come forward with a rude response to their offer and their efforts to sign the 22-year-old this summer.

It will be interesting to see if the Spanish outfit are now prepared to come forward with an improved offer for the World Cup winner.

It is clear that Florentino Perez is unhappy with the response from the French club.

Meanwhile, Kylian Mbappe is angling for a move away from Paris and he has already refused to sign an extension despite entering the final year of his contract.

If PSG deny him a move to Real Madrid this summer, it is certain that the player will leave on a free transfer next year and that could be a massive financial blow for the French outfit.

Club director Leonardo has confirmed that Mbappe promised not to leave the club on a free transfer but it wouldn’t be surprising if the player chose to run down his deal after he is denied a move.

Apparently, the French outfit had an agreement with the player back in 2017 and that they would negotiate a transfer if Real Madrid comes calling for Mbappe.

The reported €160 million offer is a massive one for a player who is in the final year of his contract and PSG would be wise to accept it and reinvest the money into their playing squad.

It remains to be seen whether the two parties can come to any sort of compromise in the next few days now.
