Real Madrid’s Bid for Kylian Mbappe
During the summer transfer window, Real Madrid made a whopping bid of 180 million euros for Kylian Mbappe. PSG, who wanted to keep their star player and wanted to form a unformidable MNM trio of Messi, Neymar and Mbappe, rejected this bid.
To increase the stakes, Madrid made another bid of 200 million euros, which was again rejected. This cleared PSG’s intention and the Spanish Giants decided to get Mbappe for free in the 2022 summer transfer window, when his contract expires.
Zlatan says to not follow ‘Mojandose’
The AC Milan star told fans to avoid any fake news and wait for this saga to end in the next summer window. Zlatan concluded his interview with L’Equipe by saying, “I helped to the PSG to 100%. Every day I worked in this. I brought the things to which was accustomed in the Juve or in the Milan.
I did not adapt me to the PSG, was all the contrary. The PSG wanted to arrive to the maximum level, inside and out of the field, but there was a lot that do. Me enorgullece say that I was there at the beginning and see where is today. It has been fantastic”.
This trilogy between PSG-Mbappe-Madrid continues and is up to Mbappe to decide his future. Football fans just have to wait when it finally unveils and makes the next summer transfer window more exciting.
