After several attempts to sign French professional footballer, Kylian Mbappe from Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) this summer failed, Real Madrid will receive the forward for free next summer.
Naija News understands that Madrid had repeatedly made offers to PSG but was turned down by the Ligue 1 club.
The 22-year-old player has just a year left on his contract with PSG. Madrid’s first offer to land Mbappe deal was £137million, which was snubbed by PSG.
The La Liga giants increased their bid to £145m plus £9m in add ons and was also rejected.
The Spanish club was full of hope on completing Mbappe’s deal on the transfer deadline day after they increased their bid to £189m. Unfortunately, no response was made by the Ligue 1 side.
Come next summer, Los Blancos will move to wrap up Mbappe’s transfer and PSG will be offered nothing this time after they have agreed on pre-contractual terms with the young star.
Meanwhile, English Premier League club, Everton has loaned their forward, Moise Kean to Juventus.
Juve’s quest for a forward became paramount following Cristiano Ronaldo’s departure to former club, Manchester United.
Naija News reports that Kean began his football career at Juventus in 2016. The Italian footballer became the club’s youngest-ever debutant at the age of 16.
Kean’s return to Juve on loan reportedly cost the Seria A club €7m and the contract deal expires in 2023 with an obligation to sign permanently.
The player had spent last season on loan at Paris Saint-Germain, where he netted 17 times in Ligue 1.
