Real Madrid’s proposed deadline-day move for Paris Saint-Germain’s Kylian Mbappe is allegedly “completely off”, because it is already September 1st. So, though Los Blancos were optimistic in just yesterday’s football news, Real Madrid will not sign Mbappe this summer, now.
There has been speculation of football transfers for Kylian Mbappe throughout this summer transfer window. Rumours whispered that PSG would sell Mbappe this summer before he leaves for free when his contract expires in 2022.
And indeed, Kylian Mbappe has entered the final year of his contract with head coach Mauricio Pochettino’s Paris Saint-Germain side.
As such, Real Madrid were hopeful of securing the World Cup-winning Frenchman’s signature in the final days of summer.
And even as the summer transfer window edged to a close (now over after August 31st), Real proposed a bid higher than £189 million to PSG, who first demanded 200 million euros and then 250 million euros for their young 22-year-old striker.
Football News – Real Madrid Will Not Sign Mbappe This Summer
Subsequently, journalist Kaveh Solhekol has now claimed that Real Madrid have walked away from a deal due to PSG stalling.
Solhekol informed Sky Sports News: “I’ve just got a message from somebody involved in the Kylian Mbappe deal, it’s a three-word message: ‘Deal off completely’.”
Kylian Mbappe will thus not get to fulfill his dream move to Real Madrid, at least, this summer.
“I’ve just got off the phone to somebody in Paris who is working on a deal, and this is incredible. Real Madrid was willing to pay for than €220m (£189m) today for Kylian Mbappe,” Solhekol further revealed.
However, he went on: “PSG has stalled, haven’t got back to Real Madrid, who have walked away because it’s too late to do the deal. I’ve been told Real Madrid will sign Mbappe on a pre-contract agreement in January for nothing. PSG could have had more than €220m (£189m) today but have not co-operated.”
