Paris Saint-Germain’s ownership has pressured Kylian Mbappé with an ultimatum: Either extend his contract or be sold this summer. Well, it appears the capital club is hitting the reset button.
PSG Community reported on Thursday that Mbappé is leaving PSG as the French giants and Madrid have agreed on a fee worth €200 million plus €50 million in bonus.
As a result, if Real Madrid is willing to pay that sum, then it’s one that the Ligue 1 side cannot turn down. Furthermore, representatives for Mbappé and the Emir of Qatar met to discuss the Frenchman’s future at PSG.

It’s been rumored that Real Madrid will go as high as €120 million in terms of a transfer fee, while PSG would be looking for upwards of €200 million.
Suppose the reporting is accurate by PSG Community, who hit on the news regarding Luis Enrique becoming the next manager. The reigning Ligue 1 champions got their desired asking price in that case.
Real Madrid must replace the goal-scoring production after Karim Benzema left for Saudi Arabia this summer. Meanwhile, Mbappé remained adamant about staying and honoring the final year of his contract, but it seems PSG doesn’t want to run the risk of him leaving as a free agent.
It seems both clubs would be happy if this is indeed the outcome.
