Real Madrid has made some good transfers so far but still is missing out a big transfer that fans are expecting.
Such is Real Madrid’s fear of missing out on Kylian Mbappe, Marca reports that they will move for the Monaco striker this summer and pay a world-record transfer fee, rather than wait a year until he enters the final year of his contract.
The Spanish publication writes that Madrid ended up in a similar situation with Gabriel Jesus, who joined Manchester City in January, and will bring in Mbappe to compete with Cristiano Ronaldo, Gareth Bale and Karim Benzema, with James Rodriguez and Alvaro Morata making way.
Similarly, Monaco, who value Mbappe at €130 million, favour selling this summer while they can still command a large fee, rather than in a year’s time. Meanwhile, any doubts the France international had about a move to the European champions have been put to bed by the offer of a €6-7m annual salary and a six-year contract.
