Real Madrid and Kylian Mbappe have the chance to end one of the most tiresome transfer sagas in football history in just eight months. Los Blancos are convinced there will be a happy ending.
According to Marca newspaper, Mbappe has rejected Real Madrid on three occasions, but Real Madrid are confident that the fourth time will be a success for them.
While few inside the club are willing to talk about it, as they do not want to create any expectations, there is a quiet belief th at Mbappe will be with them this time next year. Mbappe’s silence in recent months has also been taken as promising.
The feeling is that he will sign for Real Madrid on a free from Paris Saint-Germain, even if the Parisian outfit are hopeful of persuading him to either stay, or at least extend his contract.
One of the main factors behind Real Madrid’s confidence is the players.
Inside the dressing room, the likes of Vinicius Junior, Rodrygo Goes, Jude Bellingham and Federico Valverde are all convinced he will join next season and are already discussing how they can fit in with the Frenchman in the side.
The likes of Vinicius Jr and Rodrygo have also spoken publicly about the fact that they can’t wait to play with him.
If the move goes through, it will be a star-studded squad for the Real Madrid manager, be it Carlo Ancelotti or someone else. It has recently emerged as a more sensitive football club, but looking at the young stars coming through, Mbappe could usher in another era of Galacticos at the Santiago Bernabeu.
