Paris Saint Germain have rejected the £137m bid for Frenchman Kylian Mbappe who had the intention to leave the club.
Mbappe showed intentions to leave the club this summer after a historic move from Messi who joined the club from Barcelona.
PSG sports director Leonardo said that the money is not worth it since the club owe Monaco too.
“The offer is considered to be a far cry from what Kylian is worth today. We also owe part of this money to Monaco and we consider that the bid is not sufficient.,” he said.
“We made two important offers to Kylian: one at the level of the top players in the squad two months ago, and one above these players very recently. We want to prove to him that he is an important player, at the centre of the project, but not above the project,” he added.
Mbappe’s fate now hangs in the balance as the end of the transfer window edges closer.
