Real Madrid is ambitious and doesn’t rule out the possibility of pairing the Frenchman with Bellingham and Vinicius in the squad. PSG had requested a month of ‘truce’ that ends today.
It’s Kylian Mbappé’s turn to make a move. PSG asked him for a month of silence before making his future public for issues of vital importance for the stability of the Parisian team and French football itself, such as the audiovisual rights of the French championship, which is currently being sold. Since January 1st, the striker has had the power to talk, negotiate, and even decide his future from June 30th, but the express request of the Paris club leaders spoke of a month of truce. And so it has been.
Real Madrid, at all times, has wanted to stay out of the month of January that has already ended. The White Club has denied any movement around the Frenchman. In fact, he had not been talked about in the different meetings held in Valdebebas until last week. Not even when the entire Madridista hierarchy was in Riyadh for a week for the Super Cup, with Florentino Pérez at the helm. Those days were used to move forward with the Super League project, with meetings with different stakeholders in the possible new competition.
However, everything has changed in recent days, as we said last Sunday. This change speaks to the ambition shown by the leaders. Real Madrid, as the ones in charge consider, may be close to making a major move. A club, owned by its members, could afford the luxury of having three of the most highly rated players in the world of football, something that they are starting to talk about and have clearly understood is possible this time.
Having Vinicius, Bellingham, and… Kylian Mbappé on the same team and dressed in white can stop being a utopia and become a demonstration that there are still certain values that some clubs cannot handle, no matter how much money they have. To which we must add Endrick, Camavinga, Tchouaméni, Valverde, Rodrygo…
Last summer, Real Madrid stayed out of Mbappé’s way. That’s what they said in June and they kept it up until the last day of August. For a while it seemed that history would repeat itself in 2024, but the White Club was obliged to look at what was happening in Paris and that’s what is happening. That’s right, all from the tranquility that comes from analyzing what happened in previous years and looking at the excellent behavior and performance of the current squad. The need is not pressing from a sporting point of view.
Real Madrid also has a clear idea of how it is going to move in terms of economics so as not to harm the sporting side. In all senses. In terms of the club’s stability and in terms of the order of the dressing room, which is considered by everyone who sets foot in Valdebebas to be the best they have worked with.
For his part, Mbappé has always recognized that his decision would not harm PSG, giving the impression that what was discussed last summer served as justification for his possible departure from the French club on June 30th. For a long time, there was talk of the striker’s renunciation of a sum of money (80 million euros) that he had to receive as compensation for his departure at the end of his contract with the Paris club.
