Real Madrid will usually get who they want when they shortlist a player to sign.
Kylian Mbappe is the latest megastar talent that Los Blancos are currently after, although Paris Saint-Germain have managed to stand firm to the Spaniard’s advances so far.
It has been claimed that serious offers have already been rejected by the Parisians as they do not want to sell one of their many talisman at the club, although they might be forced to cash in soon.
Mbappe’s current contract expires at the end of the season, which means he will be able to talk to a foreign club in the winter about a potential move and complete such a move on a free transfer and the fact he has turned down new deals suggest he could well enter discussions with a new club. Its definitely a betting market worth checking out on https://www.sportweddenschappen24.net/ over the next few months!
And, according to reports, it would seem that Real Madrid are ready to pounce on such a move with their president, Florentino Perez, stating that he hopes something can be sorted out by the turn of the year.
Perez told Spanish paper El Debate (via Sky Sports): “In January we will have news on Mbappe.
“Hopefully, everything can be sorted on January 1.”
Although, potentially scared at damaging the “good relations” that the two clubs have – in Perez’s own words – it would seem he has backtracked on those comments as he believes they were “misinterpreted” – just as everyone in football feels when they speak.
A report by Marca (via Sky Sports) stated: “My words were misinterpreted.
“What I said is that we have to wait until next year to hear from him, always with respect to PSG with whom we have good relations.”
Those “good relations” might already be strained as PSG’s sporting director, Leonardo, had reacted angrily to the continued talk of Mbappe to Real Madrid, asking for the talk to stop as the transfer window is closed.
“It’s been going on for two years,” the Brazilian told French sports daily L’Equipe (via Sky Sports). “I just remind you that the transfer window is closed, that a season is underway.
“There are matches and Real Madrid cannot continue to behave in this way. “Let it stop! Kylian is a player of Paris St Germain and the club wants this relationship to last.”
Mbappe himself has not totally ruled out staying at PSG beyond this season.
Asked if he was going to leave next summer, Mbappe told L’Equipe: “I’ve been in football long enough now to know that yesterday’s truth is not necessarily today’s, nor tomorrow’s.
“If I was told that [Lionel] Messi was going to play at PSG, I wouldn’t have believed it, so you never know what’s going to happen.”
