Real Madrid has transferred a second offer to Paris Saint-Germain for Kylian Mbappé amounting to 180 million euros, club sources told ESPN. This offer is divided into 170 million fixed plus 10 other variables that, according to the sources, will be “easy to fulfill.”
The response of PSG is still unknown, but the people consulted reveal that it will be difficult to accept the Madrid offer, because the Parisian club values the player at 220 million.
On Tuesday night, ESPN reported that the first offer for Mbappé of 160 million had been instantly rejected by the Parisian club.
From then on, Leonardo, PSG sports director, exploded in an interview with various European media and confirmed the above. In addition, the sports director called “illegal” and “disrespectful” the behavior of Madrid in the operation.
However, Leonardo himself admitted that, if Mbappé wants to leave Paris Saint-Germain, he would, but it would have to be under “his conditions”.
ESPN already reported on Tuesday that Madrid would have to raise its offer to at least 200 million to convince PSG, but the response of the Parisians to the latest offer from the whites is still unknown.
On Wednesday at noon, ESPN announced that Real Madrid was already studying making a second offer that would be around 180 million euros for Mbappé, which has been confirmed late tonight.
As for the player, Mbappé, has been the priority objective of Florentino Pérez ahead of Erling Haaland. The attacker has rejected two renewal proposals by the French club and has filed a request to be transferred to Real Madrid as soon as possible to confirm the roadmap that Madrid had to take over his services.
In fact, several of his own teammates admitted yesterday how their “optimism” at the beginning of August had turned to “resignation” before the possible departure of Mbappé to Real Madrid.
Returning to PSG, Leonardo insisted that they would ask Real Maderid for more than the 180 million euros (more variable) that they paid to Monaco for their transfer in 2017.
With this second offer, and knowing that Madrid could wait until next summer to sign the 22-year-old attacker for free, Florentino Pérez wants to show Mbappé that he is “determined and committed” to his signing.
The Madrid club sees Mbappé as an ideal footballer on which to build Carlo Ancelotti’s new Madrid and they want him to be the image of the team’s regeneration together with the new Santiago Bernabéu.
The Madrid club has been preparing for some time to try to sign Mbappe and this summer it has raised around 80 million euros from the sales of Raphael Varane to Manchester United and Martin Odegaard to Arsenal, to which must be added the departures of Varane and Ramos and the zero cost of the signing of David Alaba.
