Paris Saint-Germain is considering a €160m (£137m) bid from Real Madrid for Kylian Mbappe, with the France striker hoping to sign the Spanish giants.
The 22-year-old has less than a year left on his contract in the French capital after turning down more than three different offers from Paris Saint-Germain for a contract extension in recent months. Despite the arrival of Lionel Messi from Barcelona, Mbappe has made it clear that he would like to move to La Liga after signing from Monaco on an initial season-long loan in 2017 before joining permanently for £165.7m a year later.
It is understood that Real’s offer was made on Sunday but PSG have yet to respond, although they may now decide to cash in a player who has scored 133 goals in just 174 games for the club in all competitions. Mbappe has been linked with a move to Madrid for several months, despite the Spanish club incurring losses estimated at 300 million euros due to the Corona virus pandemic.
Messi is on his way to make his Paris Saint-Germain debut this weekend in Reims. In response to a question about the possibility of playing with the Brazilian star Neymar and the World Cup winner in the French League this season, he said describe it By “madness”. Messi said: “Paris Saint-Germain has done great deals on top of the players who are already here.” “I am excited to play and will do so alongside some of the best players in the world. It will be a great experience every day. I hope to keep winning titles. I have the same hunger as when I was younger.”
