According to reports, Real Madrid has made a bid to recruit Kylian Mbappe, a forward for Paris Saint-Germain, in the summer.
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 said 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 only on attempting to win a trophy for PSG.
Though Real is one of a small group of teams that could have the financial resources to get a deal through, bids for his signing will still continue to come in.
According to a previous source, Los Blancos have no desire to become 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 choice, different sources have given different answers, although it seems Real would like to finish the discussions quickly.
Real will have more room to work with when it comes to the La Liga pay ceiling in 2024–2025, which might allow them to sign Mbappe to a lucrative long-term deal.
With Real Madrid declining to recruit 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 with the same conditions that he was given the option to accept in 2022. It is unclear how this will affect things, however.
In an effort to keep their star player and put a stop to rumours for at least a year or two, PSG is said to have made a contract offer of their own. This is probably their best offer as well.
