“A strange question, I did not expect,” Ancelotti joked on Friday at a press conference when asked if Mbappe was a starter at a Spanish club.
Mbappe is a great player, that’s right. But today I focus on those players who are on the team. Once again, my lineup is great. We can compete with any team in the world. The club is doing well with transfers, I can’t say more than that – added the Italian coach.
Ancelotti made no secret that he knew how much the club he was coach had offered in exchange for the Frenchman. – Now there is a sum of 180 million euros on the table, the transfer is being handled by the club presidents, and I am thinking about the next league match – he added.
At the beginning of the negotiations, Real proposed 160 million to PSG. The French considered this amount … absurd. Later, the Spaniards added 10 million euros, but this proposal was also not accepted. Now on the table – as revealed by the French sports daily L’Equipe – there are 180 million. Euros ($211.48 million).
Ancelotti declined to comment on the size of a possible Mbappe transfer, saying he was “not interested in football politics”.
Mbappe, 22, who joined the Paris team from Monaco in 2017, currently has a contract with PSG until the end of the 2021/22 season.
