“I know from sources that Mbappé was almost made by Real Madrid”

first_imgThis one year wait was already announced by AS on April 7. The serious crisis of the coronavirus, which is hitting the club economy, has forced Madrid to rethink its transfer strategy and, therefore, the Operation Mbappé, the most ambitious that the club plans for the coming years, has been postponed until the end of the 2020-21 season. In the road map of the Concha Espina club is that the French star does not renew his contract with PSG, which ends in 2022. The player is fulfilling the plan and in Paris they already take it for granted that they have only one year to enjoy the Mbappé phenomenon. “In no case will there be an extension of Mbappé’s contract with PSG. It will be an agreement between them as PSG agreed to part ways with him this summer. In my opinion, it is only a matter of time ”, Rothen pointed out.That determination of the player not to renew his contract is the key point for PSG to understand that within a year he will have no choice but to negotiate the departure of his star. In 2022 the Frenchman could go for free wherever he wanted with a stratospheric record, something that does not interest any of the clubs whose relationship, by the way, is excellent. Madrid already caresses Mbappé, according to the surprising statements of Rothen who, by the way, in March of last year ventured the following: “I can say it from a reliable source, Griezmann will go to Barcelona next summer.” Months later, Grizzi wore the azulgrana t-shirt … Real Madrid is touching Mbappé. The French striker slipped from his hands to Florentino and Zidane in 2017. The non-departure of Bale, for whom Mourinho sighed, made Mbappé look out of place and preferred to leave PSG for 180 million. After several more unsuccessful approaches this year, it opened a door to hope, and Madrid was very close to sneaking in for it, but the crisis caused by the coronavirus pandemic has closed it abruptly. This is what revealed Jerome Rothen, former PSG player (2004-2009) and with very good sources at the Parisian club, on Radio Montecarlo, statements reproduced on the web ParisTeam. “I know from sources that what Kylian Mbappé did to Real Madrid was almost done. But with what is happening, it is certain that Mbappé’s arrival at Real will be postponed. ”last_img read more
