Paris Saint-Germain will reportedly put Kylian Mbappé on the market after the 24-year-old informed the capital club with an official letter that he would not extend his contract.
With Mbappé possibly on the market, all eyes are on Real Madrid to make a move for the France international. Foot Mercato reported on Monday that the Spanish club could take action in the next few weeks.
◉ À travers sa lettre, Mbappé confirme bien qu'il avait une 3e année OPTIONNELLE en 2024-2025.
◉ Le Real Madrid pensait le signer libre dans un an mais pourrait passer à l'action dans les prochaines semaines.

Real Madrid wanted to circle back on the PSG star despite being spurned last year after Mbappé extended his contract. Nonetheless, now it’s a different situation and rather than wait until Mbappé becomes a free agent, Los Blancos must act now to replace Karim Benzema.
It will be interesting to see what Real Madrid does, as their initial plan was to wait and pursue Mbappé once he becomes a free agent to avoid paying a transfer fee.
However, if the forward is indeed available, then their plans have to shift and they’ll possibly need to gather a sum to bring the play they’ve long coveted to the Spanish capital.
