Real Madrid’s president, Florentino Pérez, is already considering the possibility of moving on from Kylian Mbappé and has identified a potential replacement for the French superstar. With Mbappé’s future uncertain, the Spanish giants are preparing for all scenarios, a strategy that has served them well throughout their illustrious history.
The ongoing “Mbappé saga” continues to dominate the attention of Florentino Pérez and José Ángel Sánchez, as they are well aware that the young forward from Bondy is the true galáctico that Real Madrid needs to elevate their squad to new heights.
While the club remains focused on the present, they are also keeping a keen eye on the future. Defensa Central reports that in the event that Mbappé decides to renew his contract with Paris Saint-Germain or does not make the move to Real Madrid in 2024, Florentino Pérez has already identified several names to bolster the attacking line. However, it is clear that his preferred choice is Erling Haaland.
Several factors make Haaland an attractive prospect for Real Madrid. Firstly, there is a strong relationship with the player’s agent, Pimienta. Secondly, Haaland himself has expressed a desire to play in Spain, a country he adores to the extent of owning a house in Marbella. Lastly, having already achieved success with Manchester City, the Norwegian striker is ready for a new challenge at the Bernabéu.
These enticing factors have led President Florentino Pérez to seriously consider Haaland’s potential signing next summer. However, it is important to note that this move would not materialize during the current campaign.
Kylian Mbappé must understand that Real Madrid will not wait indefinitely for his decision, especially considering his off-field behavior, which does not align with the values of the club and its supporters.
If the talented Frenchman fails to express his desire to join the Los Blancos this summer or, at the latest, during the January transfer window in 2024, Florentino Pérez will redirect his attention towards Manchester, where another star player awaits him. There have been rumors suggesting that this alternative option may come with a release clause of around €180-200 million.
Real Madrid’s future plans hinge on the outcome of the Mbappé situation. While the club remains hopeful of securing the services of the French prodigy, they are also prepared to explore other options. Erling Haaland, with his impressive track record and desire to play in Spain, emerges as the frontrunner. Only time will tell how this captivating transfer saga unfolds, but one thing is certain – Real Madrid is determined to maintain their position as one of the world’s footballing powerhouses.
