It seems that Real Madrid's statement in which the club confirmed that it did not negotiate with Kylian Mbappe, was not a strategic move by Florentino Pérez, but rather the real position of the Merengue management in the recent period.
This is what was reported by "Cadena Ser", which revealed that Kylian Mbappe has become out of the accounts of Real Madrid, and there will be no attempts again to sign him.
According to the report, two main reasons behind Real Madrid's reluctance to sign the Paris Saint-Germain star, the first and most important is his huge salary and transfer bonus that he would have won once he joined the Spanish capital.
Mbappe's salary with Real was supposed to be 35 million euros per year, which is a very huge figure, knowing that the highest salary in the team's roster is 3 times less than this figure.
In addition to the huge economic burden on Real Madrid's coffers, this salary would have caused a crisis in the dressing room, as the rest of the stars would demand equality or a little closer to this figure.
In addition, Real Madrid must pay €30 million or more in transfer bonus, which is also a figure that the club does not want to bear its coffers and plunge it into economic crises that it does not need.
The second reason is that Kylian Mbappe is "old" in terms of age compared to the team Florentino Perez is planning.
If Mbappe joins Real in the summer of 2024, he will be 26, while Florentino Pérez prefers younger players such as Endrick, Rodrygo and Vinicius in line with the Santiago Bernabeu's young player project.
It is noteworthy that Real Madrid tried to sign Mbappe in the summer of 2022, and indeed everything indicated that he was close to the Santiago Bernabeu, but the surprise was the decision to renew it for Paris Saint-Germain, which sparked great anger in the corridors of Madrid at the time.
