Real Madrid continues to harbor hopes of securing a deal for Kylian Mbappé this summer. The pursuit of the Frenchman by Real Madrid has been one of the most high-profile transfer sagas in recent years.
Despite their interest, ESPN reports that Real Madrid is cautious in their approach. The Spanish giants are refraining from making a formal offer until Mbappé or PSG initiates discussions.
Los Blancos is aware that the transfer fee is expected to surpass €200 million, making it a significant investment that necessitates a strategic approach.
Real Madrid remain hopeful of concluding a deal for Mbappé. They estimate it will be worth more than €200M but the club wants Mbappé or PSG to make the first move before negotiations officially begin.

Negotiations for such a high-profile transfer require delicate handling, and Real Madrid wants to ensure that both parties are willing to engage in discussions before proceeding.
The initiative from Mbappé or PSG would indicate a willingness to explore the potential transfer, paving the way for formal negotiations. Real Madrid’s patience stems from their belief that Mbappé’s desire to join the Spanish capital club remains strong.
Nonetheless, the capital club will continue working to extend the player. Still, the French giants might have to grasp that the 24-year-old might want out next summer when his contract expires.
