Real Madrid’s hand was reportedly forced when defender Rafael Verne was asked to leave the club this summer. However, it now appears as if it could be part of an even bigger project in which the club will finally be seen signing long-term target Kylen Mbabane.
The Premier League team, Manchester United, is reportedly planning to finalize a move for the French defender, which will bring in around 50 50 million in revenue for the Liga organization. Los Blancos have been conservative in the transfer market for the past year, and are thought to be preparing a big money move for Mbuppe.
Proceeds from the sale of Varanasi could go from Paris Saint-Germain to his fellow Frenchman. With the exception of David Alaba, who arrived on a free transfer from Bayern Munich this summer, Real Madrid have not been closely linked with many other players during the transfer window. Fans are hopeful that the MBP deal could still happen, but the club keeps its cards close to its chest.
Real Madrid president Florentino Perez does not want to directly challenge PSG counterpart Nasser al-Khalafi, especially after the latter made it clear that he was not interested in selling MBP. Los Blancos are punctual, raising funds in the background. If the opportunity arises, they are willing to come up with something out of the ordinary.
Sergio Ramos’ departure also means that the club has been able to reduce its payroll by leaving more wiggle room for a possible signing of Mbabane. With the arrival of Alba, no new signatures are expected in the defense. Nacho and Eder Melita will lead, with the help of Victor Chast, Mario Gela or Isa Valgio.
Real Madrid are not spending on more players, instead opting to retain reliable players like Lucas Vazquez. There are still huge salaries for players like Gareth Bale and Eden Hazard to deal with them, but Real Madrid are ready to meet the demands of the PSB if they finally decide to sell Mbappe. The French club is expected to cost less than 180 grams of euros.
Mbappe has reportedly told manager Mauricio Pochettino that he has no plans to renew his contract with PSG. Instead of losing it on a free transfer in 2022, the Paris-based club may still decide to make money.
