Kylian Mbappe Faces Crucial Deadline for Real Madrid Move
As he is unlikely to sign a new contract with Paris Saint-Germain, the France international’s future is once again the focus of considerable conjecture. Next summer, he might sign a free transfer to Real Madrid.
The France international ultimately signed a new contract in Paris that is set to expire in June of 2022, contrary to Los Blancos’ initial expectations that he would sign on a free agent in 2022.
Real Madrid is certain that Mbappe won’t extend his contract with Luis Enrique’s team, but they’re not ready to start a new chapter in the forward’s life story, according to AS.
According to reports, Carlo Ancelotti’s team has given the attacker until January 15 to reach a compromise; if a deal cannot be reached by then, they will reportedly proceed.
According to the rumour, if a deal for Mbappe falls through, the team will go for Erling Haaland, the forward for Manchester City.
It’s thought that Real Madrid has the money to make a major acquisition in the summer of next year, and in recent weeks, there has also been conjecture regarding Haaland’s future.
There is rumoured to be a €200 million (£175 million) release clause in the 23-year-old’s current contract, but his agent recently refused to rule out the player leaving next year.
Haaland has once again been a standout player for Pep Guardiola’s team in the 2023–24 campaign, making 21 appearances across all competitions and tallying five assists in addition to 19 goals.
Mbappe, on the other hand, has made 18 appearances for PSG this season, with 18 goals and 2 assists, including 13 Ligue 1 games with 15 goals and 2 assists.
It is believed, nevertheless, that Liverpool has no immediate plans to make a move for Mbappe, with Real Madrid continuing to be the front-runner for his services.
Mbappe would be in a great position to demand massive wages in addition to a hefty signing-on fee because he is a future free agent.
Nevertheless, PSG is said to still be interested in signing the former Monaco young player to a new deal. In 278 games with his current team, he has 230 goals and 100 assists.
