Real Madrid have a “high” chance of signing French Superstar Kylian Mbappe at the end of the season, according to La Liga president Javier Tebas.
After agreeing a deal with PSG at the end of the season, Kylian Mbappe will become a free agent on July 1. He is already eligible to negotiate a pre-contract with a view to a summer move but has yet to decide where he intends to play in 2024/25 and beyond.
While every top club in the world would surely love to have Kylian Mbappe, the gossip surrounding his future has hardly strayed seriously from Real Madrid for several years now.
“I think high,” Tebas said, via Marca, of the possibility of Kylian Mbappe moving to the Bernabeu.
“It’s a personal opinion. The 26-year-old… PSG doesn’t seem [to stay]. It will depend on Real Madrid, the president and what he is willing to bet on. Real Madrid must think that the arrival of Jude Bellingham already made him a star, Vinicius Junior is another
“If a player wants to go to Madrid… more than 50% [will go].”
Kylian Mbappe’s camp recently refuted claims in France that he had already chosen Madrid.
Kylian Mbappe is determined to play for France at the Olympics on home soil in Paris in July and August as a designated overage player, pledging to PSG president Nasser Al-Khelaifi that he will be the first to know what the final decision will be.
Financially, PSG are relaxed about the situation, even with Kylian Mbappe on the way to becoming a free agent. There is already a legally binding agreement between the player and the club for up to €80 million, which Kylian Mbappe would return even if he left Paris as a free agent – and therefore did not incur a transfer fee. .
That number is variable and it’s not just Kylian Mbappe giving up his loyalty bonus. Other factors are taken into account when calculating the final sum, which sources describe as a complicated legal arrangement and based on how and when Kylian Mbappe leaves, should that happen.
He has already given up part of his loyalty bonus due last year, enough to convince Al-Khelaifi of his commitment to the club. If Kylian Mbappe extends, he will get the waived money back.
