Kylian Mbappe is one of the best soccer players in the world, the PSG attacker has been wowing fans since France won the World Cup in 2018. Speculation about his future at PSG have been growing since Mbappe has 1 year remaining on his PSG contract and rumors of a big-time money move to Real Madrid has started as early as last season.
If Kylian Mbappe were to wait out that one year at PSG he would become the biggest free agent of any sport and could start a bidding war between the biggest clubs in the world for his services. In an effort to avoid that bidding war, Real Madrid President Florentino Perez has hinted that the Spanish giants could make a move for the French star at season's end.
According to various sources out of Spain, a transfer fee for Kylian Mbappe would be around 250 million Euros. To add fuel to the fire, Goal is reporting that Mbappe has told his team to begin looking for houses in Spain if a move is realized as early as this summer.
Kylian Mbappe house hunting in Spain
Kylian Mbappe already speaks Spanish, and it is reported that he views a move to Real Madrid as a key moment for his young career. At 22 years of age Mbappe has already won the World Cup, and domestic titles with Monaco and PSG. PSG is in the middle of searching for their first Champions League title and Mbappe is 100 percent focused on that, but nonetheless has begun the process of looking for a potential home in Madrid.
Real Madrid on the other hand is in the midst of a public relations nightmare following two ill-fated television interviews by Florentino Perez over the now dead European Super League, stating in those interviews that Mbappe is a target and that the club is being patient as to how things develop.
For Mbappe the season could be truly epic, he may win the Champions League and will lead France in the Euro Cup later this summer. He could top it off with a dream move to Real Madrid before the Euros even beings.
Florentino Perez and Super League statements
During a Spanish radio interview, the Real Madrid President stated that without a Super League “signings like Mbappe and Haaland would be impossible”. He also went on to say “...the Super League came to alleviate the economic damage this season. If Mbappé doesn't come this year, no one is going to shoot himself. People know how I am and if things are not done it is because they cannot. But the members and the fans, it is wrong for me to say so, they are happy.”
As for the signings of Mbappé and Haaland: "Life is what it is. I know what I have to do. Madrid belongs to its partners, it has no one to put the money in. I have to be a good administrator. Then the virus will end and I'm sure life will return to normal.”
