Barcelona have reportedly emerged as likely to sign Kylian Mbappe on a free summer transfer, but Real Madrid have no fears that Blaugrana could snatch his signature.
The club are aware that Mbappe is keen to join Los Blancos, with Real Madrid even believing that Paris Saint-Germain have leaked information about allegations of Barcelona interest.
They think an article published by the French newspaper L’Equipe is PSG’s last attempt to prevent Mbappe from leaving the club to live in Paris.
Barcelona and Real Madrid have always wanted to meet their needs, but everyone understands that Los Blancos are the only Spanish team to follow Mbappe and that any move from Barcelona can prevent and tarnish a seemingly wet and calm relationship, despite Joan.

Should Barcelona emerge as Mbappe’s strikers, Real Madrid will know the details of the Catalan club’s move and how determined the 23-year-old is to make his dream of joining Los Blancos a reality.
The leaders of Real Madrid and Barcelona have agreed not to intervene if their home rivals negotiate a target or if players of both teams have one year left on their contracts.
Should Barcelona break the agreement and move to Mbappe, it will run the risk, especially as it has not yet renewed the contracts of Gavi and Ronald Araujo, whose deals expire in 2023.
At the time, both teams expressed their interest in Erling Haaland, as Laporta had used his good relations with Mino Raiola, but many of those meetings with the Italian agent discussed other players and not Norway.
Real Madrid are considering that a large portion of the foundation has been laid and the counting down of Mbappe’s arrival in Los Blancos has begun.
