The Kylian Mbappe to Real Madrid saga has gone on and one for years now, and it is at the centre of the footballing world once again. It looks like the Frenchman is not ready to extend his current deal with PSG, and it runs out in the summer of 2024. That has put the Ligue 1 champions in a difficult situation.
PSG have only two options right now. One, to try and transfer Mbappe this summer itself. Two, to somehow find a solution with the Frenchman and extend his contract again. Otherwise, he will walk out as a free agent a year from now.
Of course, Real Madrid are expected to be keeping a close eye on the situation. The possibility of Mbappe joining the club this summer has not been ruled out yet, although the next one looks a more likely timeframe.
"“It is only a matter of time before he plays for Real Madrid. He has that desire to wear the white shirt because he liked the team when he was young.”"
French legend tips Mbappe to join Real Madrid
It does feel almost inevitable that Mbappe will join Real Madrid in the future. But that was the feeling last year as well, and the Frenchman did go on to sign a contract extension with PSG back then. So, nothing should be taken for granted before we see him in a Royal White jersey.
Even a move this summer would make sense for Real Madrid. With Karim Benzema leaving at the end of last season, not only do Los Blancos need a centre-forward but someone who can be the face of the club as well.
There have been plenty of twists and turns in the Mbappe to Real Madrid saga over the years. And there could be more to come in the future.
