Another day in the Kylian Mbappé transfer saga means another take from a journalist or pundit on the Frenchman’s future. This opinion comes from Spanish journalist Edu Aguirre.
On the El Chiringuito de Jugones Twitch channel, Aguirre noted that he’s betting strongly that Real Madrid will sign Mbappé and join the La Liga side once his contract with Paris Saint-Germain expires. Furthermore, Aguirre expressed a rather confident percentage that everyone will see the French national team captain in Madrid.
“Based on my information and feeling, and taking a guess, I believe Mbappé will play for Real Madrid at 80 percent,” Aguirre said. “These are my chances of it happening.”

Should Mbappé leave PSG and join Real Madrid on a free transfer, it is expected to come at a significant cost. The Daily Telegraph reports that Mbappé is seeking an annual salary of €75 million (£64.5 million) after tax, equivalent to an impressive £1.24 million per week.
Additionally, the report indicates that the Spanish club not only displays decreased enthusiasm in securing his signing but also refuses to meet the initially proposed financial terms.
