La Liga president Javier Tebas is confident that Real Madrid will land Kylian Mbappé next summer. The 24-year-old will become a free agent as he’s currently playing on an expiring contract and can sign anywhere in 2024.
While Tebas believes his league will have a new star, El Chiringuito host Josep Pedrerol ran with a joke using the remarks stated by the league executive.
“Tebas has said that Mbappé has a 70% chance of coming to Madrid … but Florentino still does not know,” Pedrerol jokingly said.
😕 "TEBAS ha dicho que MBAPPÉ tiene un 70% de venir al MADRID…

After a 3-1 loss on Sunday to Atletico de Madrid, supporters of Los Blancos are questioning moves such as not pursuing a goal scorer to replace Karim Benzema. The Spanish giants chose to play the waiting with the Paris Saint-Germain star.
Rather than offering a transfer fee to the French club, Real Madrid hopes the 2018 FIFA World Cup will come to the Santiago Bernabéu Stadium on a free transfer. However, the La Liga side has been burned in the past.
Many expected Mbappé to leave last year, but he remained. Anyone following this saga knows that it’s a rollercoaster ride and to expect the unexpected.
