That is the latest news from the transfer saga about the great French striker. Marca kept away from placing its knowledge in the story about Mbappe all day, and then they thundered authoritatively tonight. A reputable sport daily claims that an agreement in principle was reached between Real Madrid and PSG regarding the transfer of Mbappe.
In the end, however, PSG agreed to Real's second offer worth 170,000,000 euros fixed and 10,000,000 euros through bonuses (35,000,000 euros from the transfer goes to Monaco). Let us remind you, the first of 160,000,000 euros was smoothly rejected.
Although Nasser Al Khelaifi said tonight that the attitudes of him and the club around Mbappe are well known and will not change them, he still seems to be guided by logic and agreed to take 180,000,000 euros instead of being left without a cent in compensation.
The will of the player not to extend the contract and to want only Real Madrid ruled in the end. Real did not want to increase the pressure due to good relations with Paris Saint-Germain, but in the end, they brought the French before the final act.
It was also seen tonight after the angry reaction of Al Khelaifi to the question about Mbappe. It was obvious that the rich Arab was losing his temper and was about to capitulate.
The time of good relations between Real and PSG, ie Florentino Perez and Nasser Al Kelaifi, has passed with this transfer.
All the tickets were in the hands of Real thanks to the huge desire of Kylian Mbappe to be the first star of Real Madrid instead of one of the three musketeers in the attack of Paris Saint-Germain. Marca claims that Al Khelaifi and PSG had no choice but to accept the offer and that the two clubs will exchange all the documentation regarding the transfer tomorrow.
Official confirmation of the transfer could follow tomorrow, and Mbappe is expected in Madrid on Monday, where he will undergo medical tests and sign a contract. He has reportedly already said goodbye to his former teammates in Paris Saint-Germain.
Four years ago, PSG won the fight with Real for the transfer of Mbappe from Monaco. The Parisians then brought him in a transfer which in the end amounted to 160,000,000 euros. On that occasion, Real had an agreement with Mbappe that they would return for him one day.
And he came back. He waited for the Frenchman to enter the last year of his contract, to reject all offers for an extension and for the club from Prince's Park to be pushed against the wall. Al Khelaifi protested but in the end, he had to admit defeat.
No one chooses zero euro instead of 180,000,000. Mbappe's transfer to Madrid is the second biggest in the history of football. The record is held by Neymar's transfer to PSG for 222,000,000 euros.
