The summer transfer window has officially opened and Real Madrid’s priority is still called Kylian Mbappé.
The PSG striker has still not officially announced his decision to leave Paris or to extend, while his current lease expires in a year. Nasser Al-Khelaïfi and Leonardo have made the renewal of Kylian Mbappé’s contract a priority absolute, but negotiations are difficult with the international tricolor. And for good reason, the former Monegasque wants to be certain of the competitiveness of PSG next season before re-engaging and would ideally like to sign a fairly short lease of only one or two additional years. A situation that Real Madrid watches carefully, but also FC Barcelona, according to the information obtained by the GOL newspaper.
The Spanish media understands that Barcelona president Joan Laporta secretly dreams of grilling Real Madrid and of affording Kylian Mbappé to the nose and beard of the Merengue. To achieve its goal, FC Barcelona would be ready to sacrifice Ousmane Dembélé in addition to releasing a sum of around 75 ME to PSG. On paper, Barcelona’s proposal is consistent to recruit a Kylian Mbappé at the end of his contract in June 2022. It is even said that Paris Saint-Germain, who more than anything fears a departure from the French striker for free in a year, could accept it. There is however little chance that the operation will be completed since the media categorically affirms that Kylian Mbappé has no intention of signing for FC Barcelona in the more or less near future. The 22-year-old striker’s No.1 goal, the day he leaves Paris SG, is to fulfill his dream of playing for Real Madrid. The Blaugrana, as ambitious as they are, can therefore definitely give up the signing of Kylian Mbappé in the transfer window.
