Real Madrid made three attempts to sign Kylian Mbappe from Paris Saint-Germain this summer. The Spanish giants made three offers, varying from €160m to €200m. The Parisians, however, stood firm and decided to reject all offers for their star forward. Madrid will now be forced to wait until at least January to make a new offer.
PSG owner Nasser Al-Khelaifi has been speaking at the ECA assembly and there he explained how the French club was able to withstand the massive offer for Mbappe, who has now entered the final year of his contract in Paris. “The only thing that matters is that the club respects Financial Fair Play,” he said. “And Paris respects it.”
Some unexpected comments from the PSG owner as the French club has been fined in the past for not respecting the UEFA Financial Fair Play rules. Meanwhile PSG had a very active transfer summer as their acquired Sergio Ramos from Real Madrid, Gianluigi Donnarumma from AC Milan, Georginio Wijnaldum from Liverpool and Lionel Messi from FC Barcelona on a free transfer.
