At the end of the contract next June, Kylian Mbapp could leave Paris Saint-Germain this t. While Nasser Al-Khelafi closed the door on his striker on the sidelines of the Champions League draw, it could finally remain open by August 31.
Nasser Al-Khelafi has failed Real Madrid again, but …
New episode in the Kylian Mbapp soap opera. Suddenly defeated by Paris Saint-Germain after their € 160m offer, Real Madrid was quick to react.
According to several sources including Guardian journalist Fabrizio Romano and RMC radio, the Madrid club has revised its proposal upwards.
Real offers € 180 million including bonus
This time we are talking about an amount of € 180 million including bonus. Another completely insane amount knowing that the 22-year-old striker has entered the last year of a contract he refuses to extend.
In other words, if PSG takes the risk of keeping him, Mbapp could find himself free to discuss with the team of his choice next January. Under these conditions, many leaders would have jumped on the present offer. But this is not the case with the vice-champion of France. While Leonardo had opened the door, Nasser Al-Khelafi contradicted his sports director.
Al-Khelafi is building up the pressure
The Parisian president, faithful to his previous speech, once again certified that his striker would not move this summer. You know, I was very clear, in relation to the club’s position, the situation, we won’t always repeat ourselves: everyone knows our position, it’s very clear, we don’t want to change , answered Al-Khelafi at the microphone of beIN Sports, on the sidelines of the draw for the group stage of the Champions League. And yet, the soap opera is certainly not over.
As often, this kind of statement can above all indicate the buyer that his offer is not sufficient. It is certainly no coincidence that Leonardo recalled that PSG had paid € 180 million to recruit the former Mongasque in 2017. In addition, the Ile-de-France management, concerned about its image, cannot give the impression of freeing its star as easily.
Later in the evening, L’Equipe informed us however that Paris was not finally completely closed a transfer. Negotiations are also underway to find common ground by this weekend. In case of refusal of this new offer, the White House could make a last effort to try to complete this huge blow. A reconciliation of positions which could lead to an agreement in the coming hours. In any case, Real are on the right track.
