Real Madrid are an interested spectator as Paris Saint-Germain try to negotiate a new deal with Kylian Mbappe. The latest twist is the open conflict between the player and his coach, Thomas Tuchel, after being substituted in the last game. That could serve to ratify the opinion which already exists in Madrid: that the France star will end up at the Santiago Bernabeu. However, it's not an easy deal to do and Los Blancos have targetted the summer of 2021 as the key date.
It will be then when Mbappe is moving into the final year of his current deal in Paris, which runs until 2022. It will be then when Madrid make their move, as they did with Eden Hazard this past summer. They will make an offer to PSG with the knowledge that the following year he can leave for free. It's a way of not angering PSG's owners, who have a good relationship with Madrid president Florentino Perez. In the offices at the Bernabeu, they're convinced that Mbappe will not accept the renewal offer he has on the table in the French capital.
Right now, despite Mbappe's current situation, Madrid aren't contemplating that he could sign next summer. Only the player could change that if he rebels against PSG before the end of the season. But Madrid won't do anything in 2020 that they feel could harm thir relationship with PSG.
