Real Madrid Has Eyes Set On Mbappé
This summer, Real Madrid has already made one significant signing in the form of Jude Bellingham. Normally, one would not anticipate the club to make any more significant additions to their team within the same transfer window. The opportunity to sign Kylian Mbappe does not come along every day, and a transfer to the Santiago Bernabeu might still be in the cards for the Frenchman, whose future at PSG is unknown.
Mbappe has said that he will not extend his contract with PSG, which now expires in the summer of 2024. This has left the Ligue 1 champions in an awkward situation.
The best-case scenario for them would be a summer transfer for Mbappe. But, in the end, it is up to the player to decide whether he wants to leave now or wait a year to become a free agent.
It's difficult to predict Real Madrid's prospects of acquiring Mbappe this summer. However, there is a favorable update on the issue.
According to ESPN, Real Madrid is still on the fence about signing Mbappe. However, Los Blancos are hoping that a deal to sign the Frenchman will be completed this summer.
Of course, it's easy to understand why Real Madrid may be hesitant. Mbappe appeared to be on his way to the Santiago Bernabeu last summer as well, only to negotiate a contract extension with PSG.
If a transfer did take place, the timing would be ideal for Real Madrid. With Karim Benzema departing at the conclusion of last season, the team requires a figurehead to lead the line, and Mbappe might be that guy.
