While Real Madrid is strongly announced to follow in Kylian Mbappé's footsteps, the club from the Spanish capital is reportedly unable to sign him as they stand.

With less than a year and a half of his contract at PSG, Kylian Mbappé is at a turning point in his young career. Indeed, the French international must decide between staying and extending his contract in the French capital or leaving next summer, Paris not being able to afford to keep it next season if it does not. not prolonged so as not to be exposed to the risk of it going away freely. For now, Kylian Mbappé is asking for time to make his decision, while Real Madrid is courting him to join their ranks for many months now.

A transfer fee of 200 M €, a salary of 30 M € / year net… That’s too much for Real Madrid!

However, the Covid-19 pandemic has been raging in Europe for over a year, and it has had a considerable impact on the finances of the Merengue. And according to the information released by El Confidencial on Thursday, Real Madrid would simply not be able to sign Kylian Mbappé as is. Indeed, the Madrid team would not generate enough income to afford his arrival because, in addition to the € 200m that PSG would like to ask if his number 7 does not extend, it would be necessary to add the colossal salary of the Frenchman.

This would be estimated at € 30m / year net, an amount currently inaccessible for Real Madrid. So, barring big changes, it would be impossible for Casa Blanca to register the arrival of the current PSG striker next summer.
