As we enter the second half of the transfer window, the time is approaching for Real Madrid to make a conclusive decision on Kylian Mbappe.
The forward had earlier confirmed his desire to stay at PSG next season, hinting that he would join Real Madrid next year.
However, PSG have no intention to sell Mbappe for free in 2024 and want him to pen a contract renewal.
Mbappe thwarts PSG’s latest renewal offer
According to the latest update from Fabrizio Romano, it appears Mbappe has no intention to renew his contract at PSG.
The Italian transfer expert suggests Mbappe has even rejected PSG’s latest renewal offer. The French champions have put forth a host of solutions to the table.
It even included a new contract with a guaranteed sale clause that can be activated in 2024. But the Frenchman has rejected that proposal as well.
PSG are convinced Mbappe only wants a move to Real Madrid, which was evident when the attacker rejected a record proposal from Al Hilal.
What should be Real Madrid’s play here?
Real Madrid have appeared quite reluctant on making a move for the PSG superstar this summer, as it would require more economic provision.
Given the fact that the club have roped in players such as Jude Bellingham and Arda Guler, spending another fortune on Mbappe could indeed be a stretch.
However, Real Madrid have not completely ruled out the idea. In fact, the Spanish giants could reportedly make an offer for Mbappe on August 15, which is just around the corner.
For the time being, Los Blancos would continue to monitor the situation around the Frenchman. It will be interesting to see if the club plan to wait it out until next year before making a move for Mbappe.
