After an intense market closure in which much of the attention was focused the possible signing of Kylian Mbappé (22 years old) by Real Madrid, French newspapers have begun to explain those frenzied 24 and last hours. Thus, the newspaper L’Équipe offered new details of what it has dubbed “no signing of the century.” According to this medium, after the moments in which it was close until the succession of offers (whites came to present a figure of 200 million to take over the French striker, something that Bondy’s liked because it means that the Madridistas were not bluffing and were going hard for his signing), all without an answer, several agents tried to intervene, showing off the good relations between the two clubs.
