The French forward has firmly turned down any discussions regarding this offer. It’s an indication of his determination to explore other opportunities as a free agent. Speculation has been rife about his future, with Real Madrid being heavily linked to the talented striker.
Rumors have circulated that Mbappé has already reached a pre-agreement with Real Madrid. There are plenty of rumors signaling his intentions to join the Spanish giants next summer.
PSG’s management reportedly believes that the player has set his sights on a move to the Spanish capital, and they are now confronted with the prospect of losing him as a free agent.
The Ligue 1 champions have likely found Mbappé’s replacement in FC Barcelona’s Ousmane Dembélé. As a result, the capital club begins their Ligue 1 season, and they’re ready to do so without Mbappé.
It will be interesting to see how these final weeks of the summer transfer window transpire and whether the 2018 FIFA World Cup winner remains at PSG or finally moves to Real Madrid.
