Kylian Mbappé is widely expected to join Real Madrid on a free transfer this summer. However, the French forward’s exorbitant financial demands could derail the move.
According to Talk Sport, Mbappé is seeking a signing bonus of up to €150 million. This would be a record-breaking amount for a free transfer, and it has raised eyebrows even among Real Madrid fans.
Some have even suggested that it would be cheaper for Real Madrid to allow Mbappé to sign a new contract with Paris Saint-Germain and then buy him for a fee. However, this is not a realistic option, as Mbappé has made it clear that he wants to join Real Madrid.
The high cost of signing Mbappé could also have implications for Real Madrid’s other transfer plans. The club is also interested in signing Erling Haaland, and it is unclear whether they will be able to afford both players.
The situation is still fluid, but it is clear that Mbappé’s financial demands are a major obstacle to his move to Real Madrid. It remains to be seen whether the two parties can reach an agreement, or whether Mbappé will stay at PSG after all.
