PSG will contact Real Madrid among other clubs to discuss Mbappe sale

By dropping Kylian Mbappe from their pre-season tour of Asia, PSG sent out a clear message to the Frenchman on where they stand as far as his future is concerned.

The memo from the French champions is as clear as it comes – either the 24-year-old signs a new contract or agrees to leave this summer. There is absolutely no chance that they will let him leave for free next year when his deal runs out.

As such, by omitting him from the squad and leaving him behind in France, PSG have pretty much put Mbappe for sale, with the player unlikely to feature for the club again until he makes a decision on his future.

Amidst this, The Telegraph is now reporting that PSG will start contacting Real Madrid and several other clubs who are interested in Mbappe and can afford his signing so as to discuss the 2018 World Cup winner’s sale.

The idea remains that there is no way the Frenchman would be allowed to leave as a free agent in the summer of 2024. As such, the Parisian giants would be willing to even entertain offers from Saudi Arabia if it meant that they receive a fee in exchange for Mbappe.

The 24-year-old, on the other hand, remains unfazed and is said to be even willing to stay on the bench for an entire season in order to see out his contract and secure his transfer to Real Madrid a year later.

Staying at PSG for another season would mean Mbappe would stand to pocket in excess of €150 million in salary and loyalty bonuses, something which he would have to forego if he leaves right now.

As far as Real Madrid are concerned, they remain interested in signing him right now, but are watching the developments from a distance as they wish for PSG and Mbappe to resolve the situation between themselves before making a move.

It is expected that signing the forward could cost around €400 million in transfer fees, salary, bonuses, and commission payments, which would be a challenge even for a club as well-run as Real Madrid.

With PSG themselves now planning to reach out to Real Madrid and other clubs, it remains to be seen how the situation develops in the coming days.

Real Madrid enjoyed strong representation at the recently concluded European Championship and Copa America.

Dani Carvajal is the only player who returned with silverware, but it is safe to say that all the team’s stars on international duty put up displays to be proud of.

The attention now turns towards the season that lies ahead. Carlo Ancelotti and co. have already begun working ahead of the new campaign, and the internationals will begin rejoining training in the coming week, as relayed by MARCA.

The early returnees

Having suffered an early elimination in the Euro with Croatia, Luka Modric is set to return to training as early as the beginning of the coming week.

The veteran recently renewed his contract with the club and will be looking to prove that he still has it on his feet.

The team’s new signing, Endrick, will join forces with Los Blancos on Wednesday as he begins a new chapter in his short, yet illustrious career so far. All eyes will be on his official signing and presentation.

Meanwhile, Arda Güler and Antonio Rudiger are expected to return to training under Ancelotti towards the end of the week.

The late entries

Players who progressed relatively deeper into the recently concluded tournaments have understandably been granted a longer vacation, and both the French and English representatives of the club enjoy that luxury.

Needless to say, no specific date has been set for their return, considering that their campaign in the Euro ran deep into July.

The team’s Copa America stars, Vinicius Jr, Rodrygo, and Eder Militão, meanwhile, will report to training on July 31st. Federico Valverde, who finished third with Uruguay, will likely enjoy a longer hiatus.
