Real Madrid has submitted a third bid of €180 million to Paris Saint-Germain for Kylian Mbappe, according to reports.
Wide-spread reports on Thursday said that a bid of €170m plus €10m in add-ons has been made after a bid of just €170m was rejected.
The Parisians bought Kylian Mbappe for €180 million from Ligue 1 rivals Monaco in 2018, but the youngster is apparently set on leaving the French capital and only wants to move to Real.
Speaking after the Champions League draw PSG president Nasser Al-Khelaifi said I’ve been very clear, we’ve been very clear. The club’s stance is clear. We will NOT change it or repeat it.”
PSG’s sporting director Leonardo yesterday confirmed to RMC Sport that Mbappe had expressed his desire to leave, though insisted that Madrid’s opening offer was far short of their estimation.
“We consider the offer to be very far from what Kylian represents today,” Leonardo said.
“We also owe part of this money to Monaco and we consider that the offer is not enough. It is less than what we paid for him.”
The sporting director proceeded to slam the Spanish club for their alleged “illegal” tapping up of Mbappe.
“For the last two years, Real Madrid have been behaving like this, it is not correct,” Leonardo said.
“Illegal even because they contacted the player. It is unacceptable for us because it is not correct.
“It is proof of the strategy: an offer comes 1 year before the end of his contract and 7 days before the end of the window.
“They want us to reject to show to Kylian that they tried everything and to start negotiating for next year.”
It is shaping up to be an incredible end to a transfer window that has already served up a string of huge moves and stories.
Arguably the two greatest players of all time could have switched clubs by the end of the summer; Lionel Messi having already made a dramatic exit from boyhood club Barcelona to join PSG, whilst Juventus forward Cristiano Ronaldo has reportedly today agreed on personal terms with Manchester City
