Kylian Mbappe’s transfer speculation has finally been laid to rest. There has been speculation about his move for months now. In between there was a tense standoff over his contract with PSG. But now all that is behind him and Kylian Mbappe has finally confirmed his move to the Spanish capital where he is set to join the Spanish giants on a free transfer. The news was first broken by Le Parisien while ESPN confirmed the news by citing reliable inside information.
Kylian Mbappe follows in the footsteps of his illustrious predecessor, Cristiano Ronaldo. He will have his task cut out for him if he is to help Los Blanco win the Champions League. This is a title that is missing in his portfolio though he managed to power his way to the World Cup final.
Earlier Talks Of Kylian Mbappe’s Move To Real Collapsed For Various Reasons
There have been earlier occasions when the Spanish giants almost signed Mbappe. Before Mbappe joined Monaco earlier, he was on trial at Real Madrid for a week. But his family prevailed upon him to move to Monaco.
When he was shining in Monaco, Real again came up with a $195 M offer, but there was a lack of a guarantee on playing time. This finally swayed his decision to move to PSG.
Real was wary of offers from Saudi Arabia or even an extension offered by the Paris side. Saudi club AL Hilal probed with a $776 M offer, that included a summer with the Spanish side.
A crucial issue is that the contract is yet to be signed by the parties. So there remain the chances that Kylian Mbappe could repeat the backflip he made in 2022 that led to his PSG stint.
