Last summer, it appeared like Kylian Mbappe might be joining Real Madrid
The Frenchman’s deal with PSG was about to expire, and it was thought that he had a deal with the Spanish powerhouses. The Merengues were furious when the star forward abruptly reversed course and decided to sign a new contract with the Ligue 1 champions.
But only a few months into the current campaign, rumours that Mbappe was becoming dissatisfied and impatient at PSG began to circulate, and they haven’t stopped since. The 24-year-old allegedly regrets passing up Real Madrid and wants to move to the Santiago Bernabeu.
Real Madrid has made signing Mbappe their top aim for the summer of 2024 and is also interested in doing so. There have been rumours that the Merengues may try to sign the 2018 FIFA World Cup champion this summer.
However, it is currently off the table because the team does not want to pay a transfer price to acquire his services, and it is unlikely that PSG will also discuss the possibility of selling him. However, Mbappe’s deal with PSG will end in 2024, at which point he will be able to sign with any team. His contract contains a provision that would enable him to stay in Paris for an additional year. That would also require the player’s consent, which is considered to be improbable.
As a result, Mbappe may become a free agent in 2024, and Real Madrid is preparing to sign him to a Bosman contract at that time. It will be interesting to watch if Madrid succeeds in acquiring the 24-year-old sensation this time around. As things stand, a transfer for him is not anticipated this year, but the club will give him first attention in 2024.
