On October 30th, the Ballon d’Or gala will take place, and Jude Bellingham and Vinicius Junior will be in attendance. Kylian Mbappé will also be present as one of the nominees, so it is very likely that they will have a conversation in which the topic of Real Madrid will inevitably come up.
The future of Kylian Mbappé is still up in the air. He has yet to renew his contract with Paris Saint-Germain, and in January, he will be completely free to negotiate with any club and even sign a new contract. That is why there is unease within the Parisian club, although they still have confidence in convincing him to renew.
Meanwhile, Real Madrid holds hope that the player will finally take a step and fulfill his childhood dream. However, they are very discreet and cautious. When it comes to this player and his environment, they prefer not to take anything for granted until there is a signed document.
What they do know is that Mbappé deeply regrets the decision he made in 2022. The player knows he made a mistake by extending his contract and rejecting the opportunity to play for the best club in the world. Now, he has the opportunity to prove what he has been conveying in recent months.
A different gala
The Ballon d’Or gala will be held in a context of global uncertainty. The conflicts between Russia and Ukraine, as well as Israel and Palestine, have put the world on alert. Especially after extremist groups have called for attacks in Europe. In fact, some attacks have already occurred in recent days.
For this reason, according to La SER, the Real Madrid club is concerned about the event that will take place in Paris on October 30th. This is mainly because Vinicius and Bellingham are expected to attend. France is currently facing many security and terrorism issues, and most of the residents are uneasy.
