The La Liga giants are said to be monitoring the situation around Kylian Mbappe for weeks. The club is now planning to make a late bid for the PSG player as per SportBild.  The La Liga club will wait till 29th-30th August before making a $130 million bid for the French international. Real Madrid reportedly wants to avoid getting back and forth on the negotiations and complicating things.

The French international has long been speculated to make the move. In the earlier transfer windows, there were rumors of him wanting to leave PSG to join the La Liga club but he eventually ended up staying. Some say it hurt Florentino Perez’s sentiments who was seen in a viral video stating to a supporter, “The poor guy, Mbappe must already be sorry.” 

Real Madrid is in safe waters for now but they need to make a few signings. Strengthening their backline and frontline both by making some crucial signings would be the priority. The recent injury crisis has also been a big blow.
