Real Madrid pessimistic on chances of signing Kylian Mbappé in January

L’Équipe indicate this morning that Real Madrid have little hopes of signing Kylian Mbappé in the January transfer window, despite reports indicating the Frenchman wants to force through a move away from Paris Saint-Germain as soon as possible.

The Merengue upper management doubt that the World Cup winner will really leave the French capital this winter, and that even if he does negotiations would be difficult given the rivalry which has developed between the two clubs over Mbappé’s situation and the Super League. The French international’s behaviour, notably the impression that he sees himself as above the team, has also raised concern for the Spaniards.

For the Champions League holders, yesterday’s reports are simply a way for the forward to put pressure on his club. Los Blancos are nevertheless keeping a close eye on the situation, even if they are satisfied with their current squad and see Mbappé’s potential salary as a stumbling block. Florentino Pérez has not closed the door to the Frenchman, even if he was frustrated by the latter’s decision to stay at PSG last spring.
