PSG reject €160M Real Madrid Mbappé bid
AS.com has confirmed Real have made the offer and has requested to speak with the French striker as the club seeks to make their statement signing.
With just a week to go until the end of the summer transfer window, Real Madrid have made their first formal advance for Mbappé. AS have been able to confirm with Madrid sources that a €160 million opening offer has been made, but rejected, as both clubs look to get a deal that would be beneficial for either party.
For PSG, Mbappé's contract has only a year left remaining and would be able to leave the Parisian club for free at the end of the 2021/22 season. To have one of their greatest assets leave for nothing is not an attractive possibility, but the club believes they can ask for more money from Real.
Mbappé has already made it clear to PSG that he sees his future at Real Madrid. When PSG originally signed him from Monaco, Real matched PSG's bid, but the player opted instead for the French team.
Sky Sports News also confirms the information given to AS that the sale of Mbappé is closely linked to the possible arrival of Cristiano to PSG. The club's owners want to replace their star if he ends up leaving and right now the Portuguese is the first option to replace him. Ronaldo also has a year left on his Juve deal and Juventus are open to letting him leave.
