Real Madrid interest for Mbappe heightens as PSG finally set his transfer fee
As the interest for Kylian Mbappe by Real Madrid heightens, Paris Saint-Germain have decided to set his transfer fee at €220 million, according to Le Parisien.
It was gathered that Mbappe intends leaving the Ligue 1 giants for Spain this summer.
Although PSG have refused to sell the 22-year-old, they are now reconsidering their position.
Earlier this week, Madrid submitted their first offer of €160m, but it was rejected.
PSG are believed to be holding out for a €220m transfer fee for the France international, who is into the final year of his contract.
On Wednesday, PSG’s sporting director Leonardo confirmed Mbappe’s desire to leave before the transfer window closes.
Leonardo, however, criticized Madrid’s behavior during the negotiations for the forward.
He said: “We cannot change our plans in the final week of the window. If he is set on leaving, we will not hold him back, but it will be on our terms.
“I can’t confirm the figures but it’s around that. It’s less than we paid. But it’s especially the way Madrid have done it that displeases us.”
