The instability created by the coronavirus crisis forces the possibility of a change of plans. The operation can be difficult for Madrid.
The foundations of football are moving under the feet of Kilian Mbappé. The coronavirus crisis has changed any roadmap that could have been raised prior to the outbreak of the virus. The uncertainty is total.
No one knows how it will affect the transfer market, if the big clubs in Europe will have the possibility of making large transfers and, to top it off, not even the powerful PSG is capable of guaranteeing the salary of its stars (and speaks of a reduction of 50%). %). This is not the time to take wrong steps.
As AS has been able to know, the possibility that Mbappé ends up accepting a renewal with PSG has won integers in recent days, but this could only occur if the clause stipulated in the new contract that allowed him to leave Real Madrid (or another great club) for a set amount of money.
A kind of mega clause like the one that allowed Neymar to go from Barcelona to PSG himself for 222 million euros.
For the white club, the ideal situation is the one it had posed before the outbreak of the coronavirus crisis. Get Mbappe not to renew this summer and try to sign him in the summer transfer window of 2021, when the French only had one year left on his contract.
The same strategy that followed with Hazard. In this way, his signing would have become much cheaper … But with the uncertainty that exists these days, staying true to that strategy is a lot to ask Mbappé.
