Real Madrid have launched a second bid worth €180m for Paris Saint-Germain star Kylian Mbappe, having seen their first offer of €160m rejected by the French giants.
The 22-year-old’s contract expires at the end of the 2021/22 season, but Los Merengues are determined to land the World Cup winner this summer. The Frenchman has stated he wants to leave Paris, and the club’s sporting director Leonardo has confirmed the talisman’s desire for a new challenge.
PSG chairman Nasser Al-Khelaifi does not want to lose Mbappe this summer and did not waste any time in snubbing the initial offer of €160m. The chairman wants €200m, whereas director of football Leonardo has suggested a price tag of €180m could be acceptable.
Now, sources have confirmed that Real have put that €180m bid on the table, and Leonardo has told those in charge at the Parc des Princes to accept it as he wants to bring this saga to an end once and for all.
