The reasons that push PSG to sell Kylian Mbappé
Kylian Mbappé is inevitably approaching a departure from Paris Saint-Germain. And yet on Wednesday, his sporting director Leonardo announced that he had officially refused Real Madrid’s first offer for the French striker. A proposal estimated at 160 million euros which was rejected by the Parisian management. But now, in recent hours, Casa Blanca has launched a new offensive and PSG finds itself pushed to its limits.
Florentino Perez has indeed presented a new offer of 170 million euros plus 10 million bonuses. The latter gives headaches to the Parisian board which has still not officially responded to this new Madrid attempt to wrest the French genius from the residents of the Parc des Princes. And for good reason, such a sum to buy back the last year of the international tricolor’s contract can not be refused in more than one way.
First, because the main protagonist refused to initial a new lease with the Ile-de-France formation. But also because the economic interest prevails, even in Paris SG. As L’Equipe indicates in today’s edition, the Covid-19 has left its mark on the financial level and letting Mbappé go free in six months would be a very bad option for the Parisian management. If PSG has opened negotiations with the Merengues for a potential transfer of its number seven, this is anything but trivial. The arrival of Lionel Messi in Paris will limit the sporting and economic consequences for the Ile-de-France club.
The Team also specifies that new partners have come forward to sign partnership agreements since the arrival of the Pulga. But the most obvious reason that pushes Nasser Al-Khelaifi and Leonardo to reflect is the DNCG. Indeed, the Parisian general staff has counted in front of the financial policeman of French football on sales of around 200 million euros. A stone’s throw from the end of the summer transfer window, the observation remains clear: it does not jostle at the gate to acquire PSG players with very comfortable contracts. The only sale of the 2018 world champion would therefore meet the objective announced before the DNCG. More than ever, the future of Kylian Mbappé will influence the end of the transfer window of Paris SG. Ile-de-France supporters are holding their breath!
