While talks have reportedly taken place with both Mino Raiola and Pini Zahavi, respectively representatives of Erling Braut Haaland and Robert Lewandowski, Leonardo could only count on the Bayern Munich striker’s agent if Kylian leaves. Mbappé in the next few hours.
We are entering the final phase of the Kylian Mbappé soap opera since the summer transfer window will officially close its doors on Tuesday evening. Enough to leave little time for the various clubs to do their business and negotiations and a small window of opportunity for Real Madrid. As has been discussed in recent days, the Merengue club is pushing behind the scenes to complete the arrival of Kylian Mbappé. A first offer of 160M € was made and directly rejected by the management of PSG as Leonardo pointed out last Wednesday for RMC Sport. And since Thursday and Real Madrid’s second transfer offer of € 180m including bonus, nothing. Radio silence on the side of PSG which has still not responded according to Le Parisien, awaiting a larger offer in order to resume serious discussions with Real Madrid, according to the daily newspaper in the capital. According to L’Equipe, it could be that the proposal in question will be made in the next few hours for a transfer fee close to € 200m, but the mystery remains complete at this level. However, as regards the potential succession of Kylian Mbappé before the end of the transfer window, we would see much more clearly.
Whether via journalist Abdellah Boulma who assured that Mino Raiola would push for Erling Braut Haaland to wear the PSG tunic or through Sport BILD which for its part affirmed discussions between Leonardo and the agent of the Borussia Dortmund striker, it is clear that Halaland seems to be a real option for PSG as part of the succession of Kylian Mbappé. However, it would not be, or at least for the summer transfer window. According to The Athletic, PSG have not initiated any concrete movement behind the scenes to try to complete the recruitment of Halaland by the end of the transfer window when the player himself wants to perform this season at Borussia Dortmund in order to have the maximum number of options available next summer when its release clause set at € 75 million will be effective. What confirms the exclusivity of 10sport.com published last August 25 in which we revealed to you that PSG was thinking of Erling Braut Haaland only for an operation in the summer of 2022. And to top it all off, the sporting director of BvB Michael Zorc assured German media that the club’s position has not changed and that he will stay at Borussia Dortmund this summer.
Although he is only a Plan C, as le10sport.com assured you last Wednesday, Plan A being the continuation of Kylian Mbappé with an extension, and Plan B being to keep the Frenchman and leave him Going free by turning to Haaland next summer, Robert Lewandowski appears to be the most likely lead so far in the context of Kylian Mbappé’s impending departure from Real Madrid. In fact, ESPN revealed last Saturday that talks between its agent Pini Zahavi and Leonardo had already taken place last week. And the representative of the striker Bayern Munich, club he wants to leave, has reportedly offered the services of the Pole to the sporting director of PSG. Due to the situation with Haaland and Everton’s refusal to sell Richarlison as Rafael Benitez recently pointed out, only the Lewandowski option would remain for PSG if Mbappé were sold by Tuesday night.
