Real Madrid Will Sign Mbappe As Soon As They Sell Alvaro Morata And James Rodriguez
Real Madrid are looking forward to rope in Monaco teenage sensation Kylian Mbappe – but not before they offload Alvaro Morata and James Rodriguez.
The French teenager displayed incredible form as he guided Moncao to Ligue 1 triumph and also helped the club to reach the semi-finals of the Champions League – with 27 goals to his name from 54 appearances in all competitions.
Arsenal have given up their chase for Mbappe after roping in Lacazette from Lyon for a club record transfer fee. He was also linked with a move to Manchester United, but the Red Devils bosses have now agreed a deal with Everton for their striker Romelu Lukaku.
And it is believed that Liverpool cannot financially compete with Real Madrid and PSG.
Real Madrid and PSG are at loggerheads to sign the teenage sensation, who helped Monaco to the Ligue 1 title with 15 goals in 29 games.
PSG owner Nasser Al-Khelaifi is ready to break the bank for the highly-rated striker.
And sources claim that he has offered Monaco a £105million plus bid for the French teenager.
The Ligue 1 giants are ready to double the wages offered by Real Madrid, which will see Mbappe taking home a staggering £10.5m-a-year after tax.
PSG have also promised the 18-year-old striker a crucial role in the first team.
However, recent reports suggest that Mbappe prefers a move to Real Madrid and play under his childhood idol Zinedine Zidane.
He has demanded the same wages as Gareth Bale if he is to move to Real Madrid, according to reports.
The Monaco star has removed the Ligue 1 club from his Twitter bio amid rumours a move to the Bernabeu is imminent.
But it appears one of the stipulations the teenager is demanding is the same £300,000-a-week pay packet the Welshman currently receives.
Diario Gol say Mbappe is willing to be below only Cristiano Ronaldo in the money ranks.
But there is a surplus of talented players at Real Madrid and this could pose a problem in the expected Mbappe deal.
Last week Real president Florentino Perez warned Mbappe that he could not guarantee him a regular place in the first-team.
But the French teenage star accentuated that he will not switch for less game-time.
But according to Marca, Real are confident that they can lure away the teenager.
And they have now informed Mbappe that they will sign him but only after sell Man Utd targets Morata and Rodriquez this summer.
Morata was on the verge of joining Man Utd but Real Madrid held out for more money and now the Red Devils have agreed a deal with Everton for Lukaku. And sources reveal that Chelsea are now the favourites to sign the Spanish striker.
Rodriguez is believed to join the Red Devils this summer, but is also under the radar of AC Milan, Juventus, Chelsea and PSG.
Mbappe’s incredible form for Monaco has also earned him a place in the France national team and he has left no stone unturned to prove his mettle in the international circuit as well.
