In a recent interview with Canal +, Real Madrid midfielder Aurélien Tchouaméni openly discussed the possibility of Kylian Mbappé joining the club. Known for their strong bond from their time together in the national team, Tchouaméni expressed his desire for Mbappé to join Real Madrid, emphasizing that the best players in the world should play for the club. However, he also acknowledged that Mbappé’s decision to remain at Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) meant that their meeting at Real Madrid would have to wait.
Tchouaméni’s candid remarks about Mbappé have not gone unnoticed. The French forward, grateful for his friend’s support, reached out to personally thank him. It is evident that Mbappé had intentions to join Real Madrid this summer, but due to the complex negotiations between PSG and the Spanish club, a transfer did not materialize. However, Mbappé remains aware that next year may present him with a final opportunity to make the move, and he is keeping that possibility in mind.
For now, Mbappé is choosing to remain tight-lipped about his future. He wants to focus solely on the current season, both at the club and international level. The last thing he desires is to have his transfer saga overshadowing his performances on the pitch and constantly dominating press conferences involving his coaches and teammates.
Real Madrid, on the other hand, is hopeful that Mbappé will commit to signing a contract in January, thus avoiding a repeat of the uncertainty that plagued the club during the 2022 transfer window. Mbappé is fully aware that his decision not to join Real Madrid this summer disrupted the club’s planning and feels indebted to Florentino Pérez and the fans. He has no intention of repeating the same mistake.
The potential transfer of Kylian Mbappé to Real Madrid was undoubtedly a missed opportunity for both the player and the club. The prospect of seeing one of the world’s top talents donning the famous white jersey excited fans and raised expectations. However, due to various circumstances, the move did not materialize. Nevertheless, the admiration and respect between Mbappé and Tchouaméni remain intact, and their friendship continues to flourish.
As the season progresses, all eyes will be on Mbappé, waiting to see if he can replicate his exceptional performances and maintain his focus amidst the ongoing speculation surrounding his future. Real Madrid fans will undoubtedly be hoping that, come January, Mbappé will finally fulfill their dreams and become a part of the illustrious history of the club. Until then, the footballing world will eagerly anticipate the next chapter in this captivating transfer saga.
