Real Madrid is preparing to welcome Kylian Mbappe, 24, from Paris Saint-Germain.
“Mbappe will wear the No. 10 shirt at Real next season,” Spanish outlet Football España reported on Thursday.토토사이트
Mbappe has been at odds with Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) this summer. The spark came when he expressed his desire to not extend his contract, which expires next summer.
PSG responded strongly. They immediately dropped Mbappe from their pre-season roster. If he remained without signing a new contract, he would be suspended for the entire season.
This sparked speculation of a move to Real. It was claimed that Real, who had originally planned to sign Mbappe next summer, would move ahead with their plans and take him this summer.
Specific terms were even discussed. In some circles, it was claimed that Real had loaded up a €250 million transfer fee to sign Mbappe this summer.
The move never materialized. PSG rushed Mbappe into the first team after Neymar’s departure and are now reportedly in talks to extend his contract.
That hasn’t stopped Real from pursuing Mbappe. According to the report, Real are internally confident of signing Mbappe next summer.
Specific terms were previously mentioned. It has been reported that Real have prepared a €35 million after-tax salary to secure Mbappe’s signature.
They have even prepared the number 10 shirt for Mbappe, which is also the number he wears for the French national team. PSG’s number 7 is currently worn by Vinicius Junior, so Mbappe would be given the number 10 shirt.
Current number 10 Luka Modric appears to be out of Real’s plans for next season. Modric’s contract expires next June. It is likely that he will leave the club after becoming unhappy with his reduced playing time this season.
