The Kylian Mbappe transfer saga could finally come to an end in January. The Spanish giants have been pursuing Mbappe, regarded as the most valuable player in global football. There were numerous reports last summer of the French forward-moving to Spain. You can follow further developments on this transfer on Bongdalu, one of Vietnam’s most popular sports sites covering Football, Baseball, Basketball, Tennis, and Esport. So, is there a chance Mbappe will arrive in Spain in January?
Perez Sounds Bullish
The Real Madrid President revealed to Spanish newspapers that he is optimistic that Mbappe will finally sign with the club. Real waited patiently until the final moments of the 2021 summer transfer window to make concerted offers for the Frenchman.
Real made these bids when Mbappe still had a year left on his contract. This means that Real Madrid were not scheming to steal the French forward for free. However, because PSG failed to negotiate with Real Madrid, they have left Mbappe in a position to leave the French capital for free.
Contract Talks with PSG Have Stalled
Reports from PSG suggest that Mbappe has resisted every contract the Parisians have offered him. At the moment, it seems not even money would be able to change Mbappe’s mind from pursuing his dream of playing for Real Madrid.
In this regard, recent reports claim that Kylian Mbappe will sign a pre-contract agreement with Real Madrid. He will sign the pre-contract deal as all free agents can negotiate with other clubs six months before their contract expires. If that happens, Mbappe will arrive in Madrid in June.
Will The Deal Be Announced During The Season?
Reports suggest that Mbappe’s presentation would have to wait until July at the new-look Santiago Bernabeu. This would be the perfect venue to unveil the perfect signing, right?
The reports also claim that Real would not make any announcement while Mbappe was still contracted to PSG. This is an excellent decision by Real Madrid. Mbappe has already had to deal with enough blow-back from PSG fans after the August transfer rumors.
The Dream Forwardline?
With Mbappe, Karim Benzema and Vinicius Junior would form one of the most feared attacking trio globally. It would arguably be better than the Mbappe, Messi, and Neymar trio. Additionally, Real Madrid are also targeting Erling Haaland, one of the most talented strikers in Europe right now.
If Haaland and Mbappe arrive and Vinicius continues his form up, Real Madrid will have a reliable frontline for several years. Based on past experiences, Madridistas will be careful not to get their hopes up until they see official communication from the club. Nevertheless, Madrid fans hope they will see Mbappe don the iconic number “7” shirt. That would mean Eden Hazard leaves the Bernabeu or gives up the kit.
There is hope this time around as reliable sources from Spain claim that the deal will happen. Fortunately, for Real Madrid, no other club seems interested in signing the Frenchman at the moment. Moreover, Mbappe himself wants to play for Real Madrid. Therefore, Madristas have every reason to be hopeful Mbappe will sign in January.
