Real Madrid's 'Operation Mbappe' Includes Recouping £135 Million From Sales To Fund Bid
Real Madrid are reportedly hoping to recoup up to £135 million from sales next summer in order to fund a monstrous bid for Kylian Mbappe.
That's according to Spanish outlet AS who say Gareth Bale, Luka Jovic and Marcelo could all be sold to help with 'Operation Mbappe'.
The World Cup winner will be at a crossroads at the end of the season with his current contract expiring in June 2022.
He will have just one year remaining on his deal in the summer with Real set to pounce.
PSG are reluctant to sell their prized asset but if the player refuses to sign a new contract, then the club's hand could be forced.
The 22-year-old could also negotiate a free transfer from next January, too.

One of the main stumbling blocks is the finance side of the deal with Real being hit hard by COVID-19.
The La Liga side would have to raise funds by balancing their books with the likes of Bale, Jovic and Marcelo on the chopping block.
