When they are in the middle of July, a meeting with the directors of AS Monaco were, Florentino Pérez and José Angel Sánchez, respectively president and sporting director of Real Madrid, convinced that they are the transfer of Kylian Mbappé to finish up. The agreement between the two clubs was not yet conclusive, but the Monegasken had by then already accepted that they Mbappé would lose and saw him prefer not to a direct rival in the Ligue 1, as writes Marca. In addition it seemed the difference between the 190 million euro that Dimitri Rybolovlev and Vadim Vasilyev asked and the offer of Real – 180 million euro – bridge.

On Monday 24 July followed in Los Angeles, where Real when on stage was a meeting with Wilfried Mbappé, the father and agent of Kylian. It was not the first meeting, because father Mbappé was the past three years several times visited in oefencomplex Valdebebas with Zinedine Zidane, with whom he was on good terms. Mid-June had a Real offer already revealed to daddy Mbappé: a contract of six seasons and a salary of seven million euros net per year.

The prospect that Kylian together with his idol Cristiano Ronaldo could play football, voted father Mbappé conveniently. Only, he put the emphasis on the sporty project, was more important than the money. And therein was the only obstacle that Kylian the competition had to compete with ‘the BBC’. Wilfried did not see how his son would play forward with Cristiano, Gareth Bale and Karim Benzema on the field.

For Real, they were strong that they father Mbappé were able to convince with the rotation system of Zidane, which Kylian certainly speelminuten would get. But because the French coach insisted on the departure of one member of the BBC as Mbappé came, began Real work to make the departure of Gareth Bale. Only: who would not. That piste was thus of necessity abandoned.

On that particular July 24, was the attitude of father Mbappé suddenly completely changed. He said that a bid had come from PSG, that is also prepared 180 million euros to pay for it and that Kylian a salary of 14 million euros net plus premiums promised. In addition, he would always play on his favorite position: deep in the striker, not on the flank. For Real, they understood that day that they are behind the net would fish. And indeed: on 7 August did He know that his son, a decision had been taken. It would be PSG.
