The future of Kylian Mbappé remains uncertain. All that’s known is that the 24-year-old is scheduled to become a free agent after this 2023-24 season. After that, not many know what will transpire.
Real Madrid wants the Frenchman, but they likely now understand he will be a winger. As a result, one of the two Brazilians will be heading out the starting 11. With Vinicius Jr. signing a new contract, Spanish media outlet AS reports (h/t Le10Sport) that all signs point to Rodrygo going to the bench.
Should Los Blancos secure the 2018 FIFA World Cup winner, they’d play Mbappé on the right wing. So if the PSG star does arrive at the Santiago Bernabéu Stadium, it’s terrible news for Rodrygo.
Recent reports reveal that Real Madrid isn’t penciling Mbappé as their next striker, as Endrick should take the No. 9 left by Karim Benzema. The Merengue club continues to trust the potential of the young Brazilian, whose arrival is planned for next summer.
As for Rodrygo, he’ll either have to accept coming off the bench or perhaps the writing could be on the wall that it’s time to try another adventure.
