It’s Kylian Mbappé or bust for Real Madrid. Outside of David Alaba, the Spanish club has yet to make additions to their squad as they want to be in a prime position to land the Paris Saint-Germain forward.
AS writes that for Los Blancos, it’s Mbappé or nobody. Among other reasons, economic. Madrid has collected a significant amount in the last two summers (€185-million) in sales.
The sums from outgoing transfers are likely used to alleviate the effects caused by the pandemic and possibly lay the groundwork for a transfer of either Mbappé or Erling Haaland.
Real Madrid is preparing for the barrage of rumors as the summer transfer deadline is near. Many would assume the Spanish club would make some additions at the last minute.
However, the priority remains Mbappé, and they don’t want to risk their economics, whether it’s this year that PSG accepts their offer or wait until 2022 for him to arrive on a free transfer.
