In recent months, the possibility of Kylian Mbappé joining Real Madrid seemed like a distant dream. However, the latest information suggests that the young footballer has come to realize and accept his mistake in rejecting the Spanish giants back in the summer of 2022 when he was available on a free transfer. As a result, it is now highly likely that Mbappé will opt to extend his contract with Paris Saint-Germain (PSG), which is set to expire next summer.
Mbappé and his camp have observed the lack of communication from the Madrid club, which has led them to believe that there may no longer be any interest in his services, especially after the emergence of young talents like Jude Bellingham. Furthermore, even the French players at Real Madrid, such as Tchouaméni, Mendy, and Camavinga, seem to be unaware of any developments regarding Mbappé’s potential move. His name is not being mentioned in the corridors of the Bernabéu.
While it is possible that Florentino Pérez, the president of Real Madrid, may be employing a strategic approach, it is important to acknowledge that a high-profile signing like Mbappé requires time and careful negotiations. Furthermore, if Mbappé were to become a free agent on January 1, he would be able to negotiate with any club of his choosing, adding another layer of complexity to the situation.
The Mbappé camp finds itself in a state of uncertainty, as they do not wish to antagonize PSG’s president, Al Khelaïfi, who is keen on finalizing the player’s contract extension before the end of the year. At present, it appears that extending his contract with PSG is the most viable option for Mbappé, despite his initial prioritization of financial gains over his dream move. Remaining at PSG would guarantee him a salary that may not be matched elsewhere, unless Real Madrid were to make a decisive move for his signature. However, as of now, this scenario has not materialized.
