After widespread reports that Real Madrid made a bid for Kylian Mbappe, it has been revealed that Paris Saint-Germain made a secret agreement with the Frenchman that they would help negotiate his exit if Madrid made an offer.
Even though Mbappe can leave PSG on free transfer next summer, Madrid are reportedly keen to get the deal over the line this summer and have made a bid of up to €160 million.
It has been widely known that Mbappe was always dreamed of playing Madrid after idolising Cristiano Ronaldo as a child.
According to Marca, PSG were aware of his desires and therefore made a promise to Mbappe in 2017 which essentially meant that they would help negotiate a transfer to Real Madrid if they made an approach.
However, at this moment in time it seems as if PSG will not accept Madrid's first offer.
French journalist Julien Laurens said: "PSG don't want to sell Kylian Mbappé this summer. They have rejected Real Madrid's 160m euros offer for him today.
"Will Real come back with a higher offer? PSG say they would reject it too. But would they really?"
With a very short amount of the transfer window left, it seems increasingly unlikely that the deal will be able to happen.
However with Mbappe reportedly desperate to leave to the French capital, PSG may consider a higher off in order to not lose the forward on a free transfer next summer.
When Mauricio Pochettino was asked about Mbappe's state of mind last week, he was seemingly very relaxed about the situation: "I think he's very good, he's working hard to have a good season. As I've said in recent weeks, Kylian is our player and I don't see why he wouldn't be with us this season.
"This period is part of football, a lot of things are said, some things happen and others never do. The most important thing is that Kylian is very calm. He has a year left on his contract, he's a PSG player. We're happy with him and, from what I see, he's also happy with us."
