Real Madrid have reportedly had a bid worth €215 million for top target Kylian Mbappe being accepted by Paris Saint-Germain.
According to Italian journalist Rudy Galetti, Real Madrid are inching closer to finally secure the services of Kylian Mbappe before the summer transfer window slams shut. The Spanish giants have had an offer worth €215 million being accepted by Paris Saint-Germain, bringing them closer to signing their top target.
Kylian Mbappe has been nothing short of sensational since his breakout campaign in senior club football, back in the 2016/17 season with AS Monaco. Over the last four seasons, following his move to PSG in the summer of 2017, the Frenchman has only gone from strength to strength, while also having won the 2018 FIFA World Cup with France.
To date, Mbappe has amassed an excellent record of 135 goals and 63 assists in 175 appearances for the Ligue 1 heavyweights. However, his future at Parc des Princes is highly uncertain, seeing as he has entered the final year of his deal with PSG, with Real Madrid hot on his trails.
Real Madrid have taken a keen interest in Mbappe pretty much since he first broke out at Monaco. Since then, Los Blancos have been heavily linked with the 22-year-old, who has become their top target ever since Cristiano Ronaldo departed the club back in 2018.
Indeed, Real Madrid have been unable to fully replace their all-time top scorer over the last three years, with Karim Benzema doing the bulk of the scoring. As a result, with his position at PSG becoming dicey, Real Madrid seem to have sensed an opportunity, having launched the offensive for him in the past week or so.
In fact, the Merengues have already had a couple of bids being rejected by PSG, although their latest offer appears to have been too attractive to turn down. As per Rudy Galetti, Real Madrid lodged a bid worth €215 million for Mbappe, with PSG accepting this offer.
What now remains to be seen is if the Spanish giants can move quickly enough to complete the formalities of the transfer before the transfer deadline. For now, it looks like Mbappe is finally headed to Real Madrid in what will be a mega-money €215 million deal.
