Real Madrid Have Officially Made Offer for Kylian Mbappé

Real Madrid has sent an official offer of £137 million for Paris St-Germain forward Kylian Mbappé.

The 22-year-old Frenchman joined PSG from Monaco in 2017 for a transfer fee of £165.7 million. His contract with PSG expires next summer which means that Real would be able to sign him without paying PSG a penny, but they want them now and they are ready to pay to get him.

PSG sporting director Leonardo said that the club will not hold Mbappé back but emphasized that Real Madrid’s offer will not get the player packing.

“We consider the offer as being very far from what Kylian is worth today,” Leonardo told the French media.

Mbappé has won three Ligue 1 titles and three French Cups with PSG scoring 133 goals in 174 games played.

“If a player wants to leave it must be under our terms. This applies not just to Kylian but to all players,” Leonardo said.

“If he wants to go, we are not going to hold him back, but it is on our terms.”

Real has recently lost €300 million because of the pandemic and their only new signing this summer was the defender David Alaba who joined the club on a free transfer from Bayern Munich.

Real lost the team’s captain Sergio Ramos who signed with PSG as well as Raphael Varane who was sold to Manchester United for £34 million and Martin Odegaard who left for Arsenal for a sum of £30 million.

Real have been trying for years to land Mbappé but the French runner-up is trying its best to keep him in Paris.

“Kylian feels like leaving, this seems clear to me but our goal is to extend and keep him,” Leonardo added.

“We talked a lot with him and he always told us the same things. He always promised he wouldn’t leave the club free.”

“Real’s offer is less than we paid for him. But it’s the way Real Madrid does it that we don’t like.”
