To the surprise of many, Kylian Mbappe wound up staying with Paris Saint-Germain past the summer transfer window. Real Madrid did submit two offers to PSG for the forward, but the French powerhouse still refused to sell him.
For now, Angel Di Maria well aspires to see Mbappe stay on with the club in the long-term. But as he revealed to TyC Sports, Real Madrid president Florentino Perez may be the one key factor in this transfer saga.
“Florentino Pérez has put aside a lot of money to be able to make an important purchase.” Di Maria said. “He is giving his all for Kylian. I don’t know if the club will let him go, if they will keep him and let him go free, if they will renew.”
Speculation still points to Mbappe soon joining Real Madrid.
