In a groundbreaking development, PSG and Real Madrid have reportedly hammered out a staggering €300 million ($328 million) deal for the highly sought-after football prodigy Kylian Mbappe.
The exclusive report from popular news outlet Paris Saint-Germain Community indicates that a meeting took place on Wednesday between PSG’s Qatari owners and representatives from Real Madrid, leading to a significant acceleration in negotiations.
Significantly, the Emir of Qatar, Tamim bin Hamad Al Thani, who coincidentally owns the reigning Ligue 1 champions, and Real Madrid president Florentino Perez have actively engaged in exchanging messages in recent hours. Their objective is to reach a mutually favorable agreement.
PSG Community’s Information
PSG Community has provided information stating that the sale of the forward will have an initial value of €250 million ($274 million). Additionally, there will be an extra €50 million ($55 million) in bonuses based on the number of games played by the 24-year-old for Los Blancos and Mbappe’s achievement of winning the Ballon d’Or.
If the report is accurate and the deal goes ahead, Real Madrid will effectively smash the world transfer record previously broken when PSG activated Neymar’s €222 million ($243 million) FC Barcelona release clause in 2017.
Mbappe initially joined PSG on loan from Monaco in the same summer. Later, he secured a permanent deal that made him the world’s most expensive teenager.There were rumors suggesting that the permanent deal had a value of €145 million ($159 million), with an additional €35 million ($38.3 million) in add-ons. This agreement was reached one year later.
It is remarkable to consider that Real Madrid is willing to offer such a substantial amount of money, especially when taking into account that Mbappe will become a free agent in a little over a year.
The Russia 2018 World Cup winner was on the verge of joining Los Blancos in spring 2022 when his terms at the Parc des Princes were expiring, but he then performed a dramatic U-turn and extended with PSG until 2024.
