Real Madrid not ready to pay even €1 to PSG for Mbappe, believe his renewal was a mistake
In the midst of uncertainty surrounding the future of Neymar and Barcelona-linked Lionel Messi, the name of Kylian Mbappe has once again come up in Real Madrid circles, with recent reports suggesting that the club could go after the Frenchman in the coming summer.
A recent report from MARCA (h/t Madrid Xtra) has offered an update on Real Madrid’s supposed pursuit of Kylian Mbappe. It clarifies that Real Madrid have no intention of going after Mbappe at the end of the season, despite the ongoing situation that is developing at PSG this summer.
The club do not deny the talent possessed by the former AS Monaco and the fact that he could be an asset for the team in the years to come. However, they believe that the time has passed for Real Madrid to go after Mbappe, at least in the coming months.
The French international was linked with a move to Santiago Bernabeu last summer. He was even close to joining the club, but opted to sign a renewal at the last minute, subsequently pledging his future to PSG.
Real Madrid believe Mbappe’s decision to renew his contract at Parc des Princes. The player has indeed endured a difficult relationship with the board since signing a new contract. He was reportedly unhappy with the way the club failed to sign a new number nine last summer.
The report from MARCA further points out that Real Madrid have no intention of sitting down with PSG and negotiating a deal for Mbappe. The club will not give even €1 to the French outfit, as the relationship between the two clubs is completely broken.
Real Madrid, therefore, will focus on the pursuit of Jude Bellingham this summer. The club have an understanding with the English midfielder but must find an agreement with Borussia Dortmund before they can finalise the deal.

Harry Kane ‘very close’ to completing Real Madrid move, only final details remain – report
Jude Bellingham’s move to Real Madrid was finally closed earlier today as officially confirmed by Borussia Dortmund on their website. Yet, the offices at Santiago Bernabeu have not even taken a break to celebrate their success.
According to reports from Alfredo Pedullà, Los Blancos are now completely focused on the acquisition of Harry Kane. The English striker’s arrival is very close to approaching closure and only a few details remain to be sorted.
The Real Madrid and Tottenham Hotspur representatives reportedly held a meeting today over the striker’s transfer. The agenda was to agree on a number for the transfer fee.
The Premier League side began the proceedings with an expectation of €100 to €110 million in exchange for Kane. However, the Merengues suggested a lower point at €80 to €90 million, albeit with the option to include bonuses.
There is not much separating the two parties at the moment, and the minor gap will be bridged in the coming days. Overall, the meeting ended with a broad understanding between the two clubs.
Carlo Ancelotti sees the English striker as the centre-piece of his attack for next season given the recent departure of Karim Benzema. After all, Kane has been one of football’s most consistent goalscorers over the past decade.
Yet, Los Blancos cannot afford to let their guard down with one signing and will need to rope in at least two more names in attack to serve as backup options. The exits of Mariano Diaz, Marco Asensio, and Eden Hazard leave them with no squad depth, after all.
Kane has scored 30, 17, and 23 goals in his last three seasons in the Premier League and is the epitome of consistency. Further, he had three assists in his most recent league season and created 14 big chances.
