Kylian Mbappe Is Once Again Linked to Real Madrid
Javier Tebas repeatedly said that Kylian Mbappe is headed to Real Madrid and he is confident about it. The LaLiga President seemed so sure that the top free agent will sign with Real Madrid because other franchises do not have the budget of spending big for Mbappe.
The French forward has been a long-term target of Real Madrid and they have always been vocal about it even before the free agent talks came. Keep in mind that PSG declined Real Madrid’s $200M offer for Mbappe last summer.
Mbappe has not re-signed with Paris Saint-Germain for a contract extension which means he is entering free agency this summer. Rumors circulated that his team actually offered a new contract for him, but he has opted not to sign it yet in order to view other offers that will come his way this summer.
“That Mbappe comes is great news for LaLiga. It would be a joy for LaLiga. It’s the best thing that could happen to LaLiga.” Tebas exclaimed.
The LaLiga President also added that Real Madrid’s financial versatility does not limit them from signing Kylian Mbappe, but also allows them to sign another top free agent or two this coming transfer window.
However, Teban later clarified that he has no facts to back up his statement, but he is certain that the France national team player is not resigning with Paris Saint-Germain. His basis are past free agency splashes wherein max players with a few months left on their contract do not renew their contracts or open up talks regarding an extension. If Mbappe was eyeing another season with PSG, then him hitting the free agency should not already be a conversation right now.
There are ongoing talks that Mbappe’s camp has been negotiating with his mother team, but a deal has never been finalised.
Kylian Mbappe is a real football talent being compared to the likes of Pelé because of his versatility and winger play. Real Madrid Team Manager Carlo Ancelotti described him as “currently the best football player in Europe” which is a big statement coming from a notable football personality. No wonder why Mbappe’s free agency is much of a big deal.
