The Kylian Mbappé transfer saga at Real Madrid could reach its boiling point as the Spanish side could look at other options. Manchester City striker Erling Haaland is a name that constantly comes up. However, there might be another player: Victor Osimhen.
Despite the Frenchman rejecting them in the past, Real Madrid remains keen on Mbappé. However, Football Transfers (h/t Mundo Deportivo) reports that there are supporters within Los Blancos of the arrival of the PSG winger, but not everyone would be willing to pursue him.
The report adds that there’s talk about an internal division within the La Liga side regarding this matter.
Furthermore, it cites a source who notes that the more experienced executives believe that Osimhen is a better option because his style is more similar to Karim Benzema’s and would fit better into the team’s playing style.
They also consider Mbappé’s financial demands to be excessive. Additionally, the reported deadline of 15 days is about to hit, and it will be interesting to see if Real Madrid continues to play hardball and pulls away from this file.
