Paris Saint-Germain made it their mission to prevent Kylian Mbappe from signing with Real Madrid, and they were successful in their efforts. They reportedly tried to sell the Frenchman to another club for an outrageous sum that would have broken all records in world soccer.
Paris Saint-Germain star Kylian Mbappe almost signed for Real Madrid last year but changed his mind at the last minute and signed a new deal with the Ligue 1 winners instead. The whole ordeal has been disappointing for Carlo Ancelotti’s side as they thought they had secured his services top striker.
However, due to a late course correction, communication between the club and the players’ camp broke down. Since then, rumors have swirled about the Spanish side’s stance on a potential move for the 24-year-old.
Despite the recent tension between him and the PSG camp, the striker has reportedly not given up hope of one day playing for the Whites. However, there have recently been rumors that the reigning French champions will do anything to prevent him from moving to Madrid.
PSG offered Kylian Mbappe to Liverpool for astronomical sum
Even though Kylian Mbappe only inked his new contract this summer, Premier League outfit Liverpool have been given the opportunity to sign him over the remainder of the current season. One story makes the astonishing assertion that the Frenchman has just one viable exit choice, and that is to join the Reds, who are said to be preparing for a Qatari takeover attempt.
In fact, Paris Saint-Germain had reportedly been doing all they can to prevent him from joining Real Madrid. The Athletic now claims the Parisians actively worked to prevent Mbappe from signing with the Madrid giants, instead demanding any potential deal go to Liverpool.
Antero Henrique, a consultant at PSG, reportedly paved the way for the French star to quit the club in July, as detailed in the report. Henrique, though, maintained that any departure would have to be to England, and he and the club’s president Nasser Al-Khelaifi set a staggering transfer value of €400 million.
