Former Real Madrid president Ramon Calderon believes the signing of Kylian Mbappe from Paris Saint-Germain could be very close.
Earlier this week the news came out that Real Madrid had submitted a 160 million euro offer for PSG star Mbappe, putting into action a plan that has been made for years.
The French striker could leave PSG next summer with his contract expired, but Real Madrid hope to take him a year earlier to avoid the risk of losing him next year.
Leonardo talks about Real Madrid’s rejected offer, Los Blancos ‘game’ and the price they are asking for Mbappe.
However, PSG are not interested in Real Madrid’s current offer, as they are said to be asking for 220 million euros for their striker, despite the fact that they could lose him for free next summer.
But now that the first offer has been made, former Real Madrid president Calderon believes the deal will end, despite PSG rejecting the initial offer.
“In my experience, the signing is close. The moment the two clubs sit down and negotiate an offer in between, things are clear,” Calderon told talkSPORT.
“Sometimes, with things so expensive and so important, you just have to pay.”
“If Real Madrid want Mbappe, they will have to pay that much for him,” concluded the former Real Madrid president.
