Real Madrid are considering raising their offer for Kylian Mbappe to €200m in the next two hours.
They have already made a bid of €170m plus €10m in add-ons and are waiting for a response from PSG by 5pm today.
Madrid are considering raising their offer to €180m, or €170m plus €30m in add ons.
Madrid have told PSG that they will walk away at 5 pm today, Skysports reports.
Mbappe is out of contract in 10 months. He has told PSG again he will not sign a new contract. He has told PSG if they don’t sell him now he will move to Madrid as a free agent next summer.
Last night’s midnight deadline for PSG to respond to Madrid’s €170m plus €10m offer came and went with no reply.
Anything past 5pm and it will become more and more difficult for a deal to be done, especially because Mbappe is due to be with the France squad at Clairefontaine.
Mbappe scored twice for PSG last night as they won 2-0 at Reims. He said on social media after the game it was “the perfect night”.
Mbappe is out of contract at PSG in 10 months and he believes he has been promised he can leave if any club match the €180m PSG paid Monaco for him in 2017.
PSG sporting director Leonardo said last week Mbappe wanted to leave but they would not sell him in the final week of the window and they would not sell him for less than his market value.
Madrid are determined to sign Mbappe come what may. If PSG refuse to let him leave before tomorrow’s deadline, Madrid will try to sign him on a pre-contract agreement in January so he can move to Spain as a free agent next summer.
