Furthermore, Real Madrid maintains contact with individuals close to the negotiations and is privy to the latest player situation updates. The LaLiga side’s interest in Mbappé has not waned as the transfer saga unfolds.
The club’s hierarchy understands the significance of the potential transfer and is keen on securing the services of one of the most talented footballers.
While Real Madrid remains in the loop over the 2018 FIFA World Cup winner, Paris Saint-Germain wants to drum up even more interest. Romano also reported that the Ligue 1 side is open to negotiating with any club over Mbappé.
It will be interesting to see how the situation unfolds as club president Nasser Al-Khelaifi weighed in on the matter Wednesday.
“The club’s position on Kylian is clear,” Al-Khelaifi told reporters. “We want him to stay, but he must sign a new contract this summer. He won’t be able to leave for free, and he said so himself. One of the best players in the world will not go free.”
