The summer transfer window is not yet officially open, but Real Madrid are already advancing their pawns. Declared courtier of Kylian Mbappé at PSG, the Madrid club would be on the verge of completing a first offensive reinforcement.
Before Kylian Mbappé, Real Madrid rushes at a striker
In recent weeks, the Madrid press has been following the situation of Kylian Mbappé at Paris Saint-Germain. As a reminder, Real Madrid have ticked the name of the Parisian crack for a long time. Author of an excellent season, 40 goals in 45 games, in all competitions, the French international leaves doubt about his future. One year from the end of his contract with PSG, Kylian Mbappé has still not extended his lease in Paris. This hesitation could then benefit Real Madrid, eager to recruit him.
Moreover, his transfer to Madrid seems already written. The Parisian recently revealed that the two sides are apparently close to a deal. It must be said that a transfer of Kylian Mbappé at Real Madrid during the next transfer window would allow PSG to receive a large compensation, at the risk of seeing him leave for free at the end of his lease in June 2021. For the moment, nothing has yet been recorded in this file, but Real Madrid is active behind the scenes to complete a first offensive reinforcement.
According to information from Tuttosport, the Madrid club have worked hard to afford Inter Milan striker Lautaro Martinez. The Italian media reveals that the leaders of Real Madrid have started discussions with their counterparts at Inter Milan around the Argentinian striker. The Spanish giant has even made an offer for his transfer this summer.
Real Madrid’s offer for Lautaro Martinez
According to the source, Real Madrid have sent an offer of around € 90m to Inter Milan for Lautaro Martinez. This offer would include a sum of € 60M, while including a final transfer from Achraf Hakimi to the Nerazzurris. Recall that the transfer of the Moroccan side has still not been fully settled. The Italian club had made a first payment to the tune of € 13m during the last winter transfer window. But with an agreement around Lautaro Martinez, Real Madrid are said to be ready to pass the towel.
Real Madrid’s proposal would also be for a salary of € 9m per year, almost four times what Lautaro Martinez currently receives in Serie A. Enough to bring him to Madrid this summer? On the Milan side, we are still counting on Martinez for next season. Not everyone at the Italian club seems to be fully aware of the possibility of his departure. Because the Italian club is not really convinced of the need to embark on such an operation.
