On the verge of breaking up with Paris SG during the summer, Kylian Mbappé made a special request to Real Madrid, which probably helped him stay in Paris.
The fateful date of September 1 has now passed, and Kylian Mbappé will therefore continue the season with Paris SG. Barring a cataclysm, his departure will not really be studied this winter, unless Paris crashes in the great widths in its group stage. This is not a habit of the capital club, which still has great ambitions in the Champions League, and hopes to have a better and more complete workforce for European meetings this season.
For its part, Real Madrid is having a perfect start to the season in the league, even if its transfer window is of great concern to the socios. Between the lack of recruitment of a center forward and the injuries in the workforce, the formation of Carlo Ancelotti does not seem as well armed as that for the big deadlines. Will Florentino Pérez bite his fingers for not having succeeded in bringing in Kylian Mbappé, who is still escaping him this summer?
The answer can only be given at the end of the season, but what is certain is that the Spanish giant did not take advantage of the XXL confusion between Mbappé and PSG to strike a big blow. This was not at all the wish of the French striker, who did not want to hear about an arrival in Madrid this summer. If he had already made it clear that he would not extend his term at Paris SG and that he would not change his jersey as a result, the former Monegasque was very clear with all the parties concerned. Thus, in the show El Chiringuito, Eduardo Inda, the editor-in-chief of the newspaper OK Diario, was categorical. Mbappé never asked Real to make an offer to bring him this summer, and he even wanted to make Casa Blanca understand that they should not move a finger in this direction, at the risk of complicating his situation.
Mbappé at Real in 2024, it’s not guaranteed
“I am told that Mbappé asked Real Madrid, through emissaries, not to make an offer because he did not want to leave PSG. There was also the problem of the loyalty clause, which Madrid could face. In Madrid, it is obvious that it will take place next year, but for me it will be an auction,” delivered the journalist, for whom Mbappé did not want to see Real Madrid make an offer to PSG this summer. It is true that if Florentino Pérez had ever tried his luck at the height of the crisis between the French player and his club, Nasser Al-Khelaïfi’s response could very well have been to open the door to a transfer, as the positions the two parties were then very far apart. This was never the case, without knowing whether Mbappé’s wishes were respected, or whether Florentino Pérez simply did not want to take the risk of making an offer and being rejected again, he who would now like the 2018 world champion to clearly position himself on a future at Real Madrid with a view to 2024.
