Still fully on the Kylian Mbappé file, Real Madrid would have every intention of getting closer to the PSG star… but only next summer.
Under contract with Paris Saint-Germain until June 2022, Kylian Mbappé has still not made an official decision regarding his future. However, the Spanish press thinks that the trajectory of the French is already all mapped out. According to information from the Cadena Ser, Kylian Mbappé – who joined the capital club in 2017 for nearly 180 million euros – refuses to extend his contract at PSG but Real Madrid cannot afford the 2018 world champion this summer.
The only option for the Merengues and their president Florentino Pérez therefore remains to wait for the end of Kylian Mbappé’s contract next summer before taking action. The Spanish media adds that the funds collected with the sale of Raphaël Varane (Manchester United) will not be reinvested this summer. Real Madrid instead plan to put these millions of euros aside to make a very juicy offer to the Mbappé clan at the end of next season.
Journalist of the Cadena Ser, Anton Meana explains that Real Madrid still remain attentive during this summer transfer window in the event that an opportunity arises. “It’s a Real Madrid who needs money, even if he’s not broke, and then there’s the Kylian Mbappé question. It’s impossible for this summer on paper, but Madrid aren’t ruling out having the phone on in case Kylian or the Sheikh call. It’s the big operation of the year, Madrid sees it as impossible this summer, but leaves the door open. “
