Real Madrid is waiting to see if Paris Saint-Germain will accept their fresh €170 million (£146 million) bid for Kylian Mbappé, as the Spanish giants intensify their chase of the France star.
Real Madrid have made their final offer for a player whose contract expires at the end of this season, after their previous price of €160 million was rejected this week by PSG sporting director Leonardo, who stated it was “insufficient.” Mbappé has already stated that he wants to move to La Liga after rejecting more than three potential contract extensions from PSG in recent months. Madrid is said to have given him a six-year contract, with the 22-year-old eager to leave the Parc des Princes despite the arrival of Lionel Messi, who is due to make his PSG debut against Reims this weekend.

On Wednesday, Leonardo stated, “Kylian Mbappé feels like leaving, this seems evident to me.” “Our goal is to keep him and prolong his contract. If a player wishes to leave, he or she must do so on our terms. This is true for all players, not just Kylian. It appears to be a tactic to get a no from us, to demonstrate that they’ve tried everything, and to wait for Kylian to become available for free.”
He added: “With him, we talked a lot, he always told us the same things. He always promised he wouldn’t leave the club [for] free. It [Real’s bid] is less than we paid for him. But it’s the way Real Madrid does it that we don’t like.” Despite the Spanish club losing an estimated €300 million owing to the coronavirus outbreak, Mbappé has been linked with a move to Madrid for several months.
“Current estimates suggest that recovery to the pre-pandemic state would not be immediate,” Real said in their reports for the previous season, which were published in July. As a result, the club will keep up the cost-cutting initiatives it has accomplished thus far.”
Mbappé moved to PSG from Monaco in 2017, initially on loan and then permanently a year later in a €180 million deal. In 174 outings for the club, he has 133 goals in all competitions.
