LaLiga giants, Real Madrid have reportedly made a €160million bid for Paris Saint-Germain superstar, Kylian Mbappe, with ESPN claiming that the Ligue 1 giants have immediately rejected the bid for their star striker.
Mbappe's current contract with the Ligue 1 giants expires in the summer of 2022, with the 22-year-old making it clear that he does not intend to sign a new contract despite renewed approaches from the club management regarding an extension.
It has also been reported that Madrid made the offer for Mbappe on Sunday, and while PSG for now are not interested in selling the player, they might just decide to cash in on the youngster considering that they would have to let him leave for free next season.
Madrid for their part were laying the groundwork over a possible bid for sometime now and that they were pursuing a clear strategy which would ensure that they would not risk the good relationship between the two clubs - while also waiting for Mbappe to himself reveal that he was looking to leave the French giants.
Despite seeing their finances hit due to the coronavirus pandemic, Madrid have been careful when it comes to their finances, having not spent on a first-team addition since 2019. In addition to that, they have sold the likes of Raphael Varane and Martin Odegaard for €41m and €40m respectively, therefore ensuring that they have funds available to make a move for the Frenchman.
