Kylian Mbappé’s connection with Real Madrid is not a recent development. For years, the Frenchman has been linked with the Spanish giants, and once again, they’ll look to land the winger.
Mbappé will become a free agent following the 2023-24 season after the forward opted not to trigger the option to extend his contract until 2025. With the January transfer window nearing, the saga again picks up steam.
The latest news comes from Spanish journalist Edu Aguirre. He reported that the 2018 FIFA World Cup winner has a reserved house in Madrid, raising eyebrows and fueling the already blazing transfer rumors.
“Mbappé has a house in Madrid,” Aguirre said on the set of El Chiringuito (h/t Le10Sport). “It has not yet been purchased. It is reserved. He may come to Madrid, he may not come to Madrid, but he has the house.
“It’s a house of a football player that Mbappé knows very well. In a very well-known area in Madrid. I cannot give the name.”
The revelation made by Aguirre hints at the possibility that discussions and preparations are already in motion behind the scenes for Mbappé’s potential transition to Real Madrid.
Nothing is set in stone. However, the fact that the French star might be taking concrete steps towards securing a residence in the Spanish capital signifies a noteworthy development in this ongoing saga.
