Kylian Mbappe: Real Madrid offered 137 million pounds for the Paris Saint-Germain striker

Real Madrid have made a £137m bid for Paris Saint-Germain striker Kylian Mbappe.

The World Cup winner, 22, joined Paris Saint-Germain in 2017 in a £165.7m transfer deal and his contract expires in June 2022.

Mbappe scored 133 goals in 174 games for Paris Saint-Germain and won three French League titles and three French Cups.

Real Madrid, who have debts of around £1 billion, have so far only signed defender David Alaba on a free transfer from Bayern Munich this summer.

However, high-income earners Sergio Ramos and Raphael Varane have moved to Paris Saint-Germain and Manchester United respectively, and it’s clear that Real Madrid feel confident enough about their finances to take an approach with one of the world’s most highly-rated players.

It is not known how the fees will be regulated.

Paris Saint-Germain, who have not yet responded to the offer, Argentina striker Lionel Messi signed Earlier this month after he left Barcelona.

If Real succeeds, he may launch a number of deals before the transfer deadline.

Cristiano Ronaldo’s future at Juventus is known to be uncertain and PSG is believed to be interested in the Portuguese, raising the intriguing possibility of being linked to Messi, his rival to the world’s best player for more than a decade.

Manchester City are among the clubs Ronaldo has been offered but are not believed to be interested in a deal.

Last week, Massimiliano Allegri and Juventus coach Ronaldo The striker denied he wanted to leave.

‘The deal baffles people’

(How this deal works) People in France are baffling at the moment, both in terms of how Paris Saint-Germain could turn down such a huge offer for a player whose contract expired in less than 12 months, and how a club like Real Madrid, which is so mired in debt, could To bear spending a lot of money.

We don’t know how the deal is organized. There was no indication, certainly from a French point of view, as to how Real would be proposing to pay €160m, whether it was €80m up front and €80m as bonuses, it is not clear.

I certainly don’t think anyone expects them to pay 160m up front and of course pay Mbappe’s salaries on top of that, which is more than half a million euros a week.

For PSG, prestige is more important than money for the owners, than Qatar is clearly. Mbappe is one of the most prestigious assets; He’s a guy they don’t really want to lose and it’s a battle that PSG are not used to losing. They’ve usually been able to buy anyone they want, and Mbappe is clearly resisting that. It’s a strange situation for them in the ten years they’ve been in charge.

I understood that PSG were not interested in signing Cristiano Ronaldo.

They were intent on keeping Mbappe, although their stance on Mbappe appears to have softened a bit in the past couple of days, at least behind the scenes if not publicly.

They are looking for other alternatives. Richarlison of Everton is mentioned as one. It seems impossible for them to sign Ronaldo at Mbappe’s head, just because of the wages he takes, but Paris Saint-Germain is a club that doesn’t seem to matter to him at times. If they get 160m for Mbappe, it may be possible for them to go and sign Ronaldo for a few years.
