The Parisian team would have rejected the first attempt by Real Madrid that, according to L’Équipe, amounted to 160 million euros. The medium itself assures that the club did not expect a proposal of such caliber, but that it would begin to negotiate for 200 million.
Paris Saint Germain have the option to sell Kylian Mbappé before he leaves at no transfer cost next summer. However, it should be noted that if he is renewed or if he leaves, the clause of the agreement with AS Monaco would oblige him to pay 35 million to the Monegasque team. Thus, had they accepted the offer of 160, 125 would have remained in the Gallic coffers.
The meringues have shown that they are serious about the footballer who will celebrate his 23rd anniversary in December, they want him to be the new icon of the Santiago Bernabéu and are willing to make a succulent offer for him. Nothing more and nothing less than 160 million for a footballer who ends his contract in one year, a formula similar to the one they used with Eden Hazard (100M + variables) in the negotiations with Chelsea.
The figure has not been accepted by a Paris Saint Germain who knows that, if he transfers it, he must give a significant amount to AS Monaco. In the Parque de los Príncipes they will want to recover a good part of their transfer (180M) from 2017, so it is understandable that they demand 200 million and that, subtracting the clause of the Monegasques, it is closer to doing so.
