Real Madrid will almost certainly sign Kylian Mbappe this summer after a foolproof plan laid out by the club is set to reap its benefits very soon.

Real Madrid are doing everything they can to realise interest in Kylian Mbappe this summer. The Whites have made the Frenchman their primary target since 2020, but his signing was not possible last year only due to the losses suffered by the coronavirus restrictions. Nonetheless, there is a sense of inevitability that the club can sanction his signing this year.

Mbappe’s contract at the Parc des Princes expires in June 2022 and the player has reportedly shied away from any possible renewals. The France international could be sold this summer as the Parisians would not want to lose him for free, especially with the possibility of signing Lionel Messi as his short-term replacement ahead of next season.

According to Diario AS, Real Madrid have already got their plans in place about pursuing Mbappe’s signing and will do so by selling as many as six players. Isco, Dani Ceballos, Gareth Bale, Luka Jovic, Marcelo and Brahim Diaz are all going to be transfer-listed and the Merengues remain optimistic about cashing-in on a collective 100 million euros.

Los Blancos remain confident that PSG’s demands would not be loftier than 150 million euros and will drawn down a loan of 50 million euros that will allow them to bring the player in. The said loan is set to take Madrid’s debt to 800 million euros in light of the new stadium’s construction as well, which runs for an ultra-long duration of 25 years.

Paying Kylian Mbappe his wages is not going to be much of an issue simply due to the club’s rigid policies of not bending their back for sky-high demands. Moreover, with Bale and Isco hopefully sold in the summer, the club would have freed up nearly 20 million euros of wage budget every year which is certainly going to be enough to pay the forward’s salary.

Finally, the club is of the optimism that stadiums will reopen soon for fans and the revenue will return to pre-Covid levels by the end of this fiscal year. Real Madrid may not be able to sign Erling Haaland this summer, but every single thing points to Mbappe arriving at the Bernabeu ahead of next season and the fanbase can look forward to it with bright hopes.
