Kylian Mbappe has been linked with a move to Real Madrid for years. He has never seemed closer to the PSG exit door than he does now though. It is believed that the Frenchman does not want to extend his current deal, which runs until the summer of 2024. On the other hand, the Ligue 1 champions seem to be looking to part ways with him in the ongoing transfer window rather than risk losing him as a free agent a year later.
The situation is pretty fluid right now. The possibility of a loan move for the season has not been ruled out either, with clubs like Liverpool and Chelsea being linked with Mbappe in recent days.
Real Madrid appear to be the undisputed favourites to sign him on a permanent basis, whether he leaves PSG this summer or the next one. Amidst all this, Mbappe has been pictured with one of the Spanish giants’ players.
Rodrygo appears to be holidaying in Italy right now. And the Brazilian winger posted a picture of himself with Mbappe on his Instagram story.

Of course, players taking pictures with each other while on holiday is nothing new or significant for that matter. It happens a lot and should not be taken as a transfer hint.
It is pretty interesting though that the two could find themselves playing for the same team in the very near future. Plenty of rumours have suggested in recent days that Real Madrid are ready to make a transfer bid for Mbappe this summer if they feel that the offer is certain to be accepted.
Let’s see how things play out in the Mbappe transfer saga over the coming weeks. There have been plenty of twists and turns over the years and more could be yet to come.
