Everything you need to know about Kylian Mbappe to Real Madrid from Fabrizio Romano

Firstly, Fabrizio Romano pleased Real Madrid fans by claiming that, despite contrary reports, Kylian Mbappe is only in direct negotiations with Real Madrid. Furthermore, the Spanish giants are the only side to table a concrete offer for Kylian Mbappe at this stage, which was hinted by David Ornstein earlier this week.

He then followed it up saying the contract offer from Real Madrid has NOT been signed by the player yet. In his own words, Fabrizio Romano said: "The official contract of Kylian Mbappe is not formally signed yet because there are still some details to clarify but we are speaking about details so the deal is really advancing to the final stages and to the signing stages."

Then, Romano did an excellent job at explaining why there has been no official announcement from Paris Saint-Germain and Kylian Mbappe. In short, it's because the contract has not yet been officially signed but he did clarify that Paris Saint-Germain would be the first to be notified about Mbappe signing the deal, since there would be formal communication between the player and his club.

Clarifying about the terms of the deal, Fabrizio Romano suggested that Kylian Mbappe would have huge power over his own image rights, which is an agreement the camp is trying to reach with Real Madrid. He will also receive a salary in line with the top players at the club, including Vinicius Junior and Jude Bellingham.

This was to be expected as The Real Champs cited reports saying Kylian Mbappe would be the highest paid player at Real Madrid.

All in all, this is a huge and important update from the most reliable transfer source in the world. While there are still complications to sort out, Romano concluded by stating the official contract is in Kylian Mbappe's hands, so the deal is progressing well.

The transfer saga linking Kylian Mbappe to Real Madrid has been ongoing for many years. It seems now, though, that the player will become a player next season, if all goes to plan between now and the end of the season.
