Paris Saint-Germain sporting director Leonardo revealed that the club has rejected a bid of £137m for Kylian Mbappe from Real Madrid. Mbappe joined PSG in 2017 from Monaco for £166m. He has made it clear that he would like to join real Madrid one day with his contract running out next season. The French youngster has won three Ligue 1 titles as well as three French Cup titles.
“Yes, we said no verbally to Real,” Paris Saint-Germain sporting director Leonardo said when asked about Real Madrid’s bid for Kylian Mbappe. “No one is being held back. If someone wants to leave and our conditions are met, we’ll see. The offer is considered to be a far cry from what Kylian is worth today. We also owe part of this money to Monaco and we consider that the bid is not sufficient.”
“Kylian wants to leave, it seems clear to me. If Real Madrid makes an offer, it seems clear to me… I am taking a position that I think is clear to everyone. If he wants to leave, we are not going to hold him back, but it will be on our terms,” he added. “Kylian always promised that he would never leave the club for free. That’s what he’s always told us. We have no plans to talk to Real Madrid again. The deadline is August 31 at midnight. That’s how the transfer window is, but we are clear about this: we want to keep him and extend his deal. But we’re not going to let him go for less than what we paid for him when we still owe Monaco money.”
