There are a few days until the Kylian Mbappé transfer saga kicks off. With the 25-year-old becoming a free agent next June, he can sign a pre-contract as soon as the calendar turns to 2024.
As a result, Real Madrid plans to bring in the French international at zero cost in what would be one of the major coups of the upcoming summer transfer window.
Is Kylian Mbappé Real Madrid bound?
El Chiringuito Josep Pedrerol has expressed his views on this possible signing. The Spanish journalist alluded to Mbappé’s birthday and then offered an interesting comment.
“He will be [at Real Madrid] next year, with the 14 European Cups, or 15. Florentino [Perez] and he will have spoken, for sure, on Skype,” Pedrerol said. “That’s where the future Real Madrid player is.”

All eyes are on Real Madrid to present an offer to join them. However, Los Blancos reportedly has a deadline for how long the player has to accept their proposal. As a result, if the Spanish side stands strong, this saga won’t be dragged into the rest of the 2023-24 season.
Meanwhile, PSG is pushing behind the scenes. Paris has assessed two project scenarios – one implicating Mbappé and the other excluding him. The ball is in his court to see if he wants to continue with the Ligue 1 side.
