Real Madrid are ready to end the long wait for Kylian Mbappé. For three years, the White club has developed a careful strategy to sign the talented French striker and after a summer of uncertainty, the operation appears closer to completion than ever.
The “soap opera” over Mbappé’s signing began with the decision to protect Karim Benzema and not sign direct competitors like Erling Haaland. However, this caution appears to have backfired at Real Madrid, with Benzema surprisingly leaving the club on the eve of a new season. This unexpected turn left Real Madrid’s attack in a vulnerable position with just three strikers and increased the urgency to sign Mbappé.
Despite disagreements and frustration last summer when Mbappé re-signed with PSG rather than join Real Madrid, the Spanish club appears ready to forgive and forget. Conversations between the player and the club suggest a possible move in 2024 and recent events support this theory. Mbappé stood firm despite threats from PSG president Nasser Al-Khelaifi, choosing to honor his remaining contract rather than bow to pressure.

Despite PSG’s intransigent stance and Real Madrid’s refusal to negotiate, a glimmer of hope has emerged. According to MARCA journalist Carlos Carpio, Real Madrid contacted Mbappé’s mother and offered an exit at a significant price, between 225 and 230 million euros. Although operations are still at a standstill, this offer shows Real Madrid’s determination to secure the services of the French star.
PSG, for its part, is aware of Mbappé’s determination to explore new horizons and has tried to halt his march. However, the player seems determined to free himself from the golden shackles that prevent him from choosing his fate.
