It’s been nearly three weeks since Kylian Mbappe decided to reject Real Madrid and sign a contract extension with Paris Saint-Germain. Almost a month since making his decision, details regarding what went on behind the scenes are beginning to surface.
Real Madrid thought it had clinched the one wish they have had for a long time, signing Mbappe. For a long time, the Spanish club broadcast its optimism on this pursuit in the media, just as affirmative on the inevitable arrival of the player to the Santiago Bernabéu Stadium at the end of his contract with PSG.
However, that optimism and positiveness changed as Marca reports that Real Madrid started to doubt a favorable outcome in this saga during the player’s stay in Qatar with his representatives during the tour organized between the penultimate and the last day of the Ligue 1 season.
A photo in which Mbappe proudly showed the PSG logo would have been regarded as documenting the failure of his transfer to Los Blancos.
The Spanish media outlet assures that the striker had given his agreement to the club and insists on the financial motivations which would have guided the striker to prefer Paris to Madrid.
