Real Madrid hopeful of Mbappe’s transfer on deadline day

Whatsapp News

Real Madrid are still hopeful but are likely to walk away from Kylian Mbappe deal in summer window as PSG fail to respond to €180m bid.
Mbappe is out of contract in 10 months and is to sign a pre-contract agreement with Real in January.

Real made a second improved bid of £145.8m (€170m) plus £8.57m (€10m) in add-ons and PSG a deadline to respond by 5pm time on Monday.

However, no response was forthcoming, and though Real are likely to wait until January when they can sign Mbappe on a pre-contract agreement for him to join for free next summer, there is a small chance the striker could still join before Tuesday’s deadline.

The deadline is 11pm BST for French and Spanish clubs.

The French forward reiterated to PSG on Monday that he will not renew his contract, which expires at the end of the season, as he wants to move to Real.

PSG are still keen to convince Mbappe to sign a new deal, but it is understood there is now no chance of the 22-year-old agreeing to do so.

Mbappe turned to France’s Clairefontaine headquarters on Monday as the world champions prepare to face Bosnia and Herzegovina, Ukraine and Finland in their upcoming Qualifiers.

Mbappe scored twice for PSG on Sunday evening as they won 2-0 at Reims. He said on media after the game it was “the perfect night”.

PSG sporting director Leonardo said last week Mbappe wanted to leave but they would not sell him in the final week of the window and they would not sell him for less than his market value.
