The Spanish team’s offers for the 22-year-old striker are silent, despite suggestions that Paris would be willing to sell for the right offer
Real Madrid left Paris Saint-Germain feeling sharp about the way he handled negotiations for Kylian Mbappe, Purpose can reveal.
The Spanish team made two bids for the French star in August, one for about € 160 million (£ 137 million / $ 188 million) and the latest worth € 170 million (£ 146 million / $ 200 million) plus additions of € 10 million (£ 9 million / $ 12 million).
Madrid then issued an ultimatum to the Ligue 1 team and insisted that they withdraw their offer if they did not receive an answer on Monday at 18:00.
Why is Madrid upset?
Madrid feel PSG have twice given them false hope over their offers for the World Cup winner.
Madrid and Mbappe got the idea that the club would be willing to sell if they could recover the investment they made on the striker when they signed him at Monaco.
But when Madrid offered to do so, PSG simply ignored them instead of saying whether they would accept or reject it. The best they got was sports director Leonardo, who rejected the talk of a media transfer.
The official silence spurred the side of Santiago Bernabeu to issue the ultimatum and they walked away when the deadline expired.
Is the agreement dead?
No one involved in the negotiations can completely rule out the possibility of an agreement before the transfer window closes on Tuesday.
As Mbappe is free to leave when his contract expires at the end of the season, PSG can call on Tuesday to negotiate. Madrid, meanwhile, could make one last attempt to bring PSG back to the table.
What happens next?
If Madrid can not push through an agreement in front of the window, they are waiting until next summer. They are confident that they can transfer Mbappe for free in 2022.
