The future of Kylian Mbappé remains uncertain as the 24-year-old approaches free agency after this 2023–24 season. Mbappé opted not to trigger his option to extend his contract until 2025, so he’s playing on an expiring deal.
As a result, rumors linking the Frenchman to Real Madrid are ongoing. Nonetheless, if the Spanish giants are keen on the 2018 FIFA World Tuttomercatoweb (h/t Le10Sport) reports that the Merengue club would almost be obliged to sacrifice Vinicius Jr. or Rodrygo to have the means to afford the services of Mbappé.
The PSG star has stated he’s not a No. 9, so the capital club had to secure two strikers in Gonçalo Ramos and Randal Kolo Muani. If the winger decides to leave for the Spanish giants, Vini Jr. or Rodrygo might have to be content with coming off the bench.
Vini Jr. recently stated his desire to remain with Real Madrid. Furthermore, Fabrizio Romano reported on Sunday that the Brazilian’s contract extension is sealed. So all eyes could turn to Rodrygo.
He will need to decide whether he wants to be a bench/depth player should Mbappé arrive. Still, there’s the other option that the former Santos FC player could leave.
