As the ongoing summer transfer window is set to close in less than a week, Real Madrid is now rushing to haul in Paris Saint-Germain forward Kylian Mbappe.
Earlier this week, Real Madrid reportedly made an offer to PSG for Mbappe that centered on a €160 million transfer deal. PSG turned down the offer as it had no desire to sell the forward at the time.
Now, Real Madrid is inching closer to the possibility of signing Mbappe to a blockbuster permanent transfer deal.
As noted by RMC Sport, Real Madrid and PSG opened up discussions for the first time on Thursday over this transfer matter.
Real Madrid submitted a transfer offer of €170 million coupled with a €10 million bonus to PSG for the forward. Unlike the first time around, PSG did not immediately respond by turning down the offer.
Many well looked forward to seeing Mbappe, Lionel Messi and Neymar on the pitch together this season. But at the moment, Mbappe is looking to leave for Real Madrid in what may be yet another notable move in this transfer window.
