As the transfer saga surrounding Kylian Mbappé’s future intensifies, speculations are rife that the French forward will join Real Madrid this summer.
MARCA’s Pablo Polo Santías reported that the 24-year-old would leave Paris Saint-Germain a nice sum to rebuild their squad. According to the Spanish outlet, the capital club would receive a staggering €150 million to €200 million in transfer funds.
It takes a lot of time because money is definitely the only obstacle right now in the Mbappé deal. If he leaves, he will leave €150M-€200M in PSG's coffers to strengthen the team.

Mbappé, one of the most coveted young talents in world football, has been a subject of intense interest from Real Madrid. It’s now or possibly never for PSG to receive a fee for the Frenchman.
However, Real Madrid could look at Plan B if this saga continues to drag out. Recently, AS reported that the Spanish club is looking at Juventus’ Dusan Vlahovic. Nonetheless, it could be a ploy to pressure the situation to advance faster.
The LaLiga side needs a striker as only Joselu arrived to help replace Karim Benzema. As for PSG, the injection of these funds would allow them to further consolidate its status as a leading force in European football.
PSG eyes building a well-balanced squad and away from the star-studded names. So this potential sum could accelerate this process with Luis Enrique coming on board.
