Kylian Mbappe announced his decision on his future on Sunday night at a UNFP (French Professional Footballers’ Union) celebration.
The French international striker will move to Real Madrid on a free transfer agent this summer after a full deal last week.
All that had been said in recent months had been agreed, and Kylian Mbappe successfully resisted pressure from Paris Saint-Germain to sign a new deal.
Real Madrid president Florentino Perez’s strategy during the season is clear. He confirmed that Los Blancos are sitting in the shadows, relying on Kylian Mbappe’s dream of playing for the team.
The president of Real Madrid has avoided direct contact with the 23-year-old, even if he has been doing so since January 1.
Kylian Mbappe visited Madrid earlier last week, and Monday and Tuesday were two days in which it was clear that an agreement would be reached.
Real Madrid general manager Jose Angel Sanchez has taken the reins of negotiations and put the club at the forefront of doing everything possible to close the deal.
Kylian Mbappe has agreed to join the club, and his representatives have asked Real Madrid to wait until they finalize a contract with PSG before taking the next step.
Real Madrid will remain silent and wait until the player himself confirms that his time at PSG is over, and that his dream of Los Blancos will come true.
The cost of signing Mbappe for a free transfer will be dark compared to the 200 million euros they gave him last summer.
PSG need to invest in their club this summer, and will not have the money on Mbappe’s move to do so.
kylian Mbappe will sign a five-year contract, along with a million release clause. His salary will be lower than what PSG offered him.
