Kylian Mbappé is consistently linked to Real Madrid this summer or the next. But the White House is hesitant to sign the Frenchman for two reasons.
The Mbappé saga is far from reaching its conclusion both in France and in Spain. Despite resuming training with PSG, the Bondynois continues to fuel the press with speculations about his future.
Real Madrid Between Hesitation and Taking Action
On Saturday, Kylian Mbappé played his first match of the season with Paris Saint-Germain. During the match, the captain of the French national team was decisive, scoring the equalizing goal (1-1) against Toulouse. The day after this match, the German press, particularly SportBild, announced that Real Madrid hasn’t given up on the French international and could make a move with an offer of 120 million euros in the final moments of the transfer window, which ends on September 1st, according to Goal.
However, from the Spanish perspective, the interest from the White House seems to be fading away for PSG’s number 7. Nonetheless, optimism prevails. According to information from Defensa Central, even though Kylian Mbappé’s arrival would change things for the better for Jude Bellingham, the strong player of Real Madrid at the beginning of this season, it would also have negative effects for some.
Firstly, Rodrygo Goes would be the main victim if Kylian Mbappé arrives at Los Blancos. Real Madrid wants to make the Brazilian player more and more essential in the Madrid squad. This wouldn’t be possible if the Frenchman arrives, as he would lose his starting position. Secondly, Vinicius Junior would also face challenges, even though the Brazilian winger wouldn’t have significant issues. According to the media, despite these factors, Florentino Pérez would be willing to take the risk to try to bring in the prodigy of the French National Team. This summer or the next? No one can accurately answer this question.
