Real Madrid Makes Official Offer to Kylian Mbappe
As he approaches the last six months of his deal at Parc des Princes, Mbappe is free to negotiate with overseas teams.
Even though the France international has stated that he hopes to take on a new challenge at some point in his career, it is still very much up in the air as to whether or not he quits the Ligue 1 giants.
With a confident demeanour, PSG president Nasser Al Khelaifi expressed his possibility of persuading the 25-year-old to extend his stay in Paris.
With a Champions League final against Real Sociedad approaching, Mbappe has maintained that his attention is still solely on trying to win a trophy for PSG.
Though Real is one of a small group of teams who might have the financial resources to get a deal through, offers for his signature will still continue to come in.
According to a previous source, Los Blancos have no desire to get involved in a protracted drama as a result of losing out on Mbappe in May 2022 due to a last-minute change of heart.
ESPN claims that Real has already taken action in an effort to persuade Mbappe to relocate to the Bernabeu in June.
Regarding Mbappe’s timeline for making a decision, different sources have given different answers, although it appears Real would like to finish the negotiations quickly.
Real will have more room to work with when it comes to the La Liga pay cap in 2024–2025, which could allow them to sign Mbappe to a lucrative long-term deal.
With Real Madrid declining to sign a straight successor to Karim Benzema during the summer transfer window, President Florentino Perez is also keen to bring in a new attacker.
According to the source, Real Madrid is unwilling to provide Mbappe the same conditions that he was given the option to accept in 2022. It is unclear how this will affect things, though.
PSG is rumoured to have made a contract offer of their own, which is probably their strongest offer as they look to hold onto their star player and put a stop to rumours for at least another year or two.
