Real Madrid Boss, Ancelotti insisted Real Madrid’s planning for next summer was “already done” but did not disclose whether the club have made a fresh bid for Kylian Mbappe.
Kylian Mbappe was a target for Real Madrid during the last transfer window but recently ruled out leaving Psg in mid-season.
Regardless, Italian agent Giovanni Branchini claimed Real Madrid have Tabled €50million to sign The French Man Kylian Mbappe now, less than 6 months after they reportedly offered up to €200m.
Real Madrid could hire the French star as a free agent at the end of the season.
Real Madrid Boss was asked about Branchini’s comments in Madrid’s news conference on Tuesday, but decided to avoid the issue.
“Talking about players who are not here does not seem fair to me,” said Ancelotti.
“I have a good relationship with Branchini. I prefer not to comment on this.”
Kylian Mbappe scored a hat-trick in PSG’s 4-0 Coupe de France win over Vannes on Monday night and has implied he wants to fight for trophies with Pochettino’s side this campaign.
