PSG reportedly insists on $272 million price tag for Kylian Mbappe as Real Madrid’s pursuit intensifies

PSG, Kylian Mbappe, and Real Madrid have been involved in the most complicated back-and-forth in football history as far as transfer rumors are concerned. The Frenchman was in the middle of a heated transfer saga with Real Madrid last summer, only for him to make a U-turn and sign a two-year contract extension with PSG.

Things took a different turn this summer as Real Madrid lost Karim Benzema and needed to make a statement signing to replace him. The Spanish giants went back for Mbappe, turning the Frenchman’s head, leading him to exile from PSG for a while.

Two things are certain in this summer’s transfer sage: Kylian Mbappe wants a move to Real Madrid, and PSG will not lose him for free. Both parties have been through a rough patch, with their relationship initially hitting rock bottom before a strange turnaround got the Frenchman back into the team. Kylian Mbappe rejected all the contract offers by PSG, hinting at a possible departure to Real Madrid on a free transfer next summer when his contract expires.

This prompted PSG to relegate the Frenchman to the second team in their bid to pass a message to him that no player was bigger than the club. Mbappe, as you would expect, happily accepted the development and trained with the club’s B team. However, after not being selected for the team’s first game of the season, a club statement announced the next day that Mbappe would be reinstated into the team after a positive round of talks with the club management.

PSG have now reportedly slammed a $272 million price tag on their star man, putting Real Madrid in a difficult position to negotiate a deal as the transfer window is almost due to close. According to Managing Madrid, PSG are confident of keeping Mbappe beyond this season and may get him to sign a new contract to tie him down to the French capital longer than 2024.
