[인터풋볼] Reporter Daesik Kim = It turns out that Real Madrid made an official offer for Kylian Mbappe from the transfer window last summer.
Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) president Nasser El Kelaifi opened his mouth to the truth of transfer rumors surrounding Mbappe in an interview with Spanish ‘Marca’ on the 21st (Korean time).
With Mbappe finally agreeing to a new contract with PSG, Mbappe’s path has not risen to the surface, but Mbappe’s path has received worldwide attention since a year ago. Mbappe was turning down PSG’s continued contract offer, while Real were watching Hositamtam Mbappe.
It was during the transfer window last summer that Real’s movement began to take off in earnest. When Mbappe had one year left on his contract with PSG, Real made an offer to PSG. The amount of the transfer fee proposed by Real was at a level that would go down in football history, so there was a debate about whether Real made such an offer.
A year later, it was confirmed that this was true. “We are talking about a recent offer from Real, but last summer Real made 170 million euros and 180 million euros,” said El Kelaifi. ” he confessed. The transfer fee was the amount that could be ranked second in the history of football.
“When I turned down the €180 million offer, Real said they were crazy about us,” said El Kelaifi. I was able to do that because I was sure Mbappe would stay. “I understand Real’s disappointment, but what they’re saying to Mbappe is not fair.”
In the end, it was proved that El Kelaifi’s choice was right. Mbappe negotiated with Real and PSG after the season was over, and ultimately chose to stay at PSG. Mbappe will play as a PSG player until the 2024-25 season.
It is difficult to rekindle the Mbappe transfer rumors right now, but it seems that Real are still not giving up. Real president Florentino Perez said in a recent interview with Spanish media: “Mbappe did not betray me. He has said many times that playing for Real is his dream. However, everything changed in 15 days due to political and economic pressures. A lot can change in three years.”
