Did Real Madrid really offer € 180m for Kylian Mbappé? Everything suggests that this is wrong.
PSG striker Kylian Mbappé was he really the subject of a € 180m offer from Real Madrid last summer? Real could have waited a few months and started negotiating with the player in January 2022 in order to have him for free the following June. Jean-Baptiste Guégan is also very skeptical. The sports geopolitics expert says it was not in Florentino Perez’s interest to propose such a sum.
“Mbappé? Not a good decision ”
“Already, we have to see if Real Madrid were really able to pay 180 million euros for Mbappé. I do not think so. In addition, part of Florentino Pérez’s personal affairs takes place in the Gulf countries where he builds and does public works. By buying Mbappé by forcing the hand of PSG, he would have turned against Qatar. It was not a good decision from his personal point of view ”, he analyzed for the Catalan sports daily Mundo Deportivo.
