According to reports, Real Madrid isn’t sure if they should try to sign Kylian Mbappe, the forward for Paris Saint-Germain.

The 2018 World Cup winner and Los Blancos have been linked for a number of years, with speculation that he will eventually transfer to the Bernabeu.

But in 2022, Mbappe made a well-known U-turn, turning down the opportunity to finalise a transfer to Real Madrid in favour of prolonging his time at Parc des Princes.

Twenty months later, each club is dealing with a similar situation as Real Madrid waits in the wings while Mbappe chooses where to focus his next phase of development.

The 25-year-old is free to meet with Real representatives in person and sign a pre-contract agreement if he so chooses, as he has fewer than six months left on his deal.

However, PSG president Nasser Al Khelaifi has expressed optimism about the team’s long-term ability to hold onto Mbappe, stating that he wants to keep the forward for an eighth season.

With time on his side, Mbappe himself has stated that he has little intention of making a snap decision, thus it appears that no official announcement will be made anytime soon.

FootballTransfers claims that this is simply making things more unclear behind the scenes at Real, with some believing that the signing of Victor Osimhen ought to take precedence.

According to the source, opinions on whether Real Madrid should keep after Mbappe are divided, with some saying Osimhen “is the better bet.”

According to certain club officials, it would be more advantageous in the long run to sign a player who could step in for Karim Benzema.

Osimhen only recently agreed to a new contract with Napoli, which would keep him a member of the Serie A team until 2026, although it is said that the agreement includes a release option.

Even though the 25-year-old has only scored eight goals and provided two assists in 2022–23, he is still thought to be one of the top attackers in the world of football.

The in-demand forward, who is believed to have aspirations of playing in the Premier League at some point in his career, has been linked to both Chelsea and Arsenal in recent months.
