Kylian Mbappe’s transfer news has been surfing on the internet but no contract is confirmed yet neither with PSG nor with Real Madrid. A day before Paris Saint-Germain director Leonardo had rejected Real Madrid’s initial offer of a €160 million bid for the Frenchman however, PSG is now willing to accept a €180 million bid for Kylian Mbappe.
Mbappe has made it clear to PSG’s management that he is willing to leave for free when his contract expires next summer, and with the transfer window closing, the club is now considering selling the 22-year-old.
This week the two clubs exchanged words that suggested a deal would be difficult to finalize after it was revealed that the La Liga giants had made a formal bid for the player. However, Los Blancos are said to have raised their offer to €170 million (£145.87 million) plus €10 million (£8.58 million), terms that will realistically have to be considered by their PSG counterparts.
Leonardo’s wish has been granted, as PSG has decided to accept the bid…but only after giving Mbappe one last chance to stay, according to Marca. PSG director is ready to make one final appeal to Mbappe, but it is widely believed that it will be in vain because the Frenchman is set on a move to Real Madrid.
If the offer is accepted, Real Madrid could fly Mbappe to Spain to sign his contract before the international break. Real Madrid president Florentino Perez has been obsessed with signing Mbappe for years and has been waiting for the 22-year-old to enter the final year of his contract when his asking price will drop to something he considers ‘affordable.’
Apparently, Real Madrid is near to achieving a deal to sign Paris Saint-Germain forward Kylian Mbappe. According to Marca, the French club will formally accept the offer on Friday, raising the prospect of a Real Madrid announcement later that day.
