Real Madrid officials are going to have to make big financial sacrifices next summer if they want to get their hands on Kylian Mbappe.
Real Madrid were unable to sign Kylian Mbappe this summer. Despite an offer that reached 180M €, the Merengue decision-makers encountered the refusal of Parisian officials. Now, they have no other choice but to wait for the summer to enlist the Bondynois. Unless the latter extends with the vice-champions of France, they will not have to pay then transfer compensation.
The most expensive free player
But not having to shell out money for the actual transfer doesn’t mean Real Madrid can have the international without any investment. According to the daily Marca , even if they recruit him for free, Castilian officials will have to release a very large sum for the world champion . Between bonuses, commissions for agents or intermediaries and the signing bonus, the acquisition in question should cost them € 80 million. And the salary is not even taken into account. A hell of a jackpot for a “free agent”, but that says a lot about the value that Mbappe has on the market today.
Even if playing at the Bernabeu is a childhood dream for him, Mbappe will certainly be very demanding with the Madrilenians before signing the contract. And there is no doubt that other European leaders will position themselves by then with the hope of enlisting him and thus deviating from his Madrid trajectory.
