Real Madrid open talks with PSG for Kylian Mbappé after second bid

L’Équipe report this evening that Paris Saint-Germain have agreed to enter talks with Real Madrid for the transfer of Kylian Mbappé, following an second offer of €180m.

The Spanish side’s bid for the World Cup winner is broken down into a €170m initial fee and €10m in potential add-ons, a sum which matches what PSG paid Monaco four seasons ago to sign the Frenchman.

Les Parisiens have not outright accepted the bid, but negotiations are now under between the two clubs. Real Madrid have indicated that their financial situation will not allow them to increase their bid by much more, although they will be willing to increase by a few million should that be the difference between getting the signing across the line.
