PSG Remains Calm, Talking Extension with Kylian Mbappé Amid Real Madrid Rumors – Report

If you’re Real Madrid or a supporter of Los Blancos, then this latest information regarding Kylian Mbappé won’t be good news. 

After the 24-year-old opted not to trigger the option to extend his contract until 2025, the assumption was he was heading to Spain. The question was whether it be a transfer this summer or as a free agent next year.

However, the saga took a twist last week when Mbappé returned to first-team training. Then rumors of a possible extension began popping up, and CBS Sports’ Ben Jacobs has the latest on this front. 

Jacobs reports, citing sources, that PSG is calm about the Mbappé situation as the summer transfer deadline approaches. Furthermore, he informs that should Real Madrid make an offer, it’s a scenario the club has been expecting.

The Spanish club will reportedly try to make an offer at the end of the window. Still, the critical question is whether it’s a move for optics or the number is competitive.

Yet, a Real Madrid bid will only be considered by PSG if it’s higher than €160 million. Additionally, PSG is now talking to Mbappé about different contract extension options. Paris believes their star player is committed to the club for the season.

Recently, El Chiringuito host Josep Pedrerol believes the Frenchman staying this season is best for Real Madrid. The Meringues probably want to avoid paying a transfer fee and desire the 2018 FIFA World Cup winner to arrive as a free agent. 

Will it happen? This saga has taken twists and turns that it’s unpredictable to articulate what occurs next.

  1. No, Real Madrid fans are not concerned by the news. Haaland apparently has a similar clause to his Dortmund one… also in effect after 2 years – the same time as MBappe becomes a free agent. Interestingly it is the same figure – around 150M. While MBappe is a great player, most RM fans know that Haaland is more suited for RM’s style of play – he is more like CR7 Ronaldo than MBappe. This is why Real Madrid prefer to wait… the psychological makeup of the player is also being scrutinised – a money hungry player deserves to play for Qatar/PSG. We want a striker that collaborates with creating sporting history.
