Real Madrid have made an improved bid of £145.6m (€170m) to sign Paris Saint-Germain forward Kylian Mbappe.

The La Liga club’s initial offer of £137m (€160m) was rejected by PSG on Wednesday.

Mbappe is in the final year of his contract, meaning he’ll be able to sign for Real Madrid on a pre-contract agreement as soon as the January transfer window opens.

Still, as was noted in the report by Sky Sports, the bid was rejected.

Real Madrid were expected to come again – and they have. Sky Sports’ Kaveh Solhekol reports that the Spanish giants have upped their bid to £145.6M [€170M].

How can Madrid afford ‘impossible’ €160m Mbappe bid?

In April, Real Madrid president Florentino Perez told the world that football was dying and clubs like his could no longer survive without a European Super League, in the face of state-backed sides like Paris Saint-Germain and Manchester City.

The 74-year-old also insisted that due to the realities of the current transfer market, neither his club nor any other would be able to afford to sign Kylian Mbappe or Erling Haaland this summer.

So just how is it that Los Blancos, four months later, are able to splash the cash to bring the former to Santiago Bernabeu, when they had alluded to being stone-cold broke?
