Is Kylian Mbappe Finally Making A Move To Real Madrid?

The ongoing saga of Kylian Mbappe’s potential move to Real Madrid continues, with the La Liga giants actively pursuing the French star. The protracted negotiations between the club and the player may finally reach a resolution this summer, but the deal could face a deadlock if Mbappe’s salary demands are not met.

According to renowned football journalist Fabrizio Romano, Real Madrid is making intensive efforts to secure the services of Kylian Mbappe, aiming to make him their next Galactico and fill the void left by Cristiano Ronaldo in 2018.

During an interview with Madrid Zone, Romano stated, “Real Madrid are working hard behind the scenes on the Kylian Mbappe deal. They are on it.”

The World Cup-winning forward is said to be seeking an annual salary of £60 million and a transfer bonus of £107 million. Mbappe is currently allowing his contract with Paris Saint-Germain to run down, with its expiration set for the end of 2024. After that, he will become a free agent, and prominent clubs will have the opportunity to acquire his services.

However, potential complications arise as Real Madrid reportedly aims to offer an annual wage of £30 million, significantly falling short of Mbappe’s financial expectations. This disparity in financial terms could pose a significant obstacle to the completion of the deal, as securing Mbappe’s signature would require a substantial financial commitment from the 14-time Champions League winners.

In recent football action, Real Madrid played to a 1-1 draw against Atletico Madrid in a La Liga derby. As of now, they occupy the top spot in the league table, holding a 2-point lead over Girona.
