After his contract at Parc des Princes expires in June, the World Cup winner is expected to join the Blancos. Real Madrid and Kylian Mbappe have reached terms, with a deal for the Paris Saint-Germain sensation expected to be unveiled after the Champions League final.
Mbappe’s current deal with PSG expires in one month, and the club has been urgently seeking to hold down a coveted asset with a new job contract extension.
After four months of negotiations, Futballnews has heard that Madrid and Mbappe have reached an agreement, with only a few minor issues to iron out before a contract can be confirmed. The Blancos are also waiting for the Frenchman to declare his exit from PSG, which he might do as soon as May 21, when they play Metz in their final game of the 2021-22 season.
Kylian Mbappe has always wanted to play at the Santiago Bernabeu, and Madrid have been sure of signing him since their unsuccessful move for him last year, with PSG officials now all but resigned to the reality that he will be moving on to a new challenge this summer. Even if Mbappe does announce his departure from PSG in the coming days, Madrid will not make his move official until after the Champions League final.
When they face Liverpool at Stade de France on May 28, the Spanish giants will be seeking their 14th European Cup, and they don’t want any off-field issues to detract from Carlo Ancelotti’s preparations.
Mbappe’s arrival in Madrid is expected to be announced in early June, and his official introduction at the Bernabeu is expected to be postponed until after he returns from international duty with France on June 13.
Previous reports that a deal had been reached came from the Spanish press and were given less credence than this information, which comes from a more reliable source of transfer news. Indeed, this is possibly the clearest indicator yet that Mbappe will play football for Real Madrid next season, fulfilling his childhood ambition of wearing the Bernabeu club’s white.
