After a flurry of rumours earlier this month, the Kylian Mbappe to Real Madrid speculation has gone a bit quiet over the last few days. We all know it is only a matter of time before something new emerges though. At the end of the day, PSG have made it clear that they want the Frenchman to either sign a contract extension or leave this summer.
Mbappe’s current deal with PSG runs until the summer of 2024. It is understandable that the Ligue 1 champions do not want to risk seeing him walk out as a free agent a year later.
Of course, the position of Real Madrid in this saga is interesting as well. They can either push to sign Mbappe this summer or they could try to wait a season and hope that he is available as a free agent in 2024.
There is an interesting update on the situation. As reported by Managing Madrid, according to club sources, Florentino Perez and the rest of the Real Madrid board are expecting as well as hoping to see Mbappe green-light his PSG exit over the upcoming weeks.
Real Madrid stance on Mbappe move this summer
This could be a great time for Real Madrid to sign Mbappe even though it would take a major transfer fee. He could be the player to replace Karim Benzema, who has joined Al-Ittihad, up top as well as become the face of the club.
If Real Madrid decided to wait a year, they might have the opportunity to sign the best player in the world on a free transfer next summer. That is considering that Mbappe chooses to stay on at PSG and see out his contract.
Of course, PSG want him to make a decision quickly. But it is Mbappe who holds most of the cards right now. So let’s see what the French World Cup winner decides to do.
