Mbappe’s olympic dream in jeopardy as Real Madrid takes a firm stance

Kylian Mbappe’s participation in the 2024 Paris Olympics is in doubt as Real Madrid has taken a firm stance against releasing their players for the tournament.

In March 2024, Real Madrid sent a letter to the French Football Federation informing them that none of their French players would be allowed to participate in the Olympics, which will be held in Paris from July 26 to August 11, 2024. This letter effectively puts an end to Mbappe’s dream of playing in the competition, unless there is a significant turnaround.

Mbappe is expected to join Real Madrid at the end of the current season. He has already informed the PSG management of his departure. Negotiations for his transfer to the Spanish capital club are almost complete.

Disagreement over Olympic Participation

A point of contention between the two parties is Mbappe’s desire to participate in the Paris Olympics. The French striker announced in January that he dreamed of playing in the 2024 Olympics. However, his future club, Real Madrid, is opposed to this decision. The Parisian star is reportedly unhappy with this stance from the Spanish club’s leadership.

French President Emmanuel Macron has expressed his strong support for Mbappe’s participation in the Olympics. The French leader wants to mobilize all of France’s stars to ensure the country’s best possible representation at the games.

In a statement on RMC on Monday, April 15, 2024, Macron spoke about the preparations for the Olympics. He expressed his belief that France can win multiple medals. The French president is particularly interested in Mbappe, who is a star player for the French national team.

According to RMC, the Olympic Committee has reportedly selected the names of several stars who will represent France. These include Kylian Mbappe, Antoine Griezmann, climber Oriane Bertone, rugby player Antoine Dupont, and judoka Clarisse Agbegnenou. Basketball players Victor Wembanyama and Laëtitia Guapo are also said to be on the list.
