A report out of Spain revealed that Real Madrid is ruling out the signing of Mbappé. Furthermore, even if the Frenchman decides to become a free agent, Los Blancos don’t intend to pursue him.
However, RMC Sport reports that this is all a front that the Spanish club orchestrates. Additionally, the French media outlet reveals that Real Madrid is still interested in signing Kylian Mbappé at the end of the contract, despite the indiscretions of Cadena SER.
In reality, this leak comes from the Madrid club and allows it to preserve its image. The summer of 2021, during which Mbappé finally decided to extend his contract with PSG, left its mark on those at the club.
There is no question for Real Madrid about giving the impression of chasing the Parisian striker. With this media strategy, Real Madrid seeks to cover itself in the event of a non-signing.
It’s been a rollercoaster of news regarding this transfer saga. This past weekend, Real Madrid issued a statement to clarify that they’re not negotiating with Mbappé. It will be interesting to see how this entire saga finally ends.
