The countdown has begun: Real Madrid fans start counting down to potential Kylian Mbappe move

Paris Saint-Germain striker Kylian Mbappe’s potential move to Real Madrid has sent waves of excitement through the Spanish capital, with reports suggesting that the 25-year-old France captain has informed PSG officials of his intention to leave the club at the end of his contract this summer.

A source close to the Ligue 1 champions disclosed this development on Thursday, sparking speculation about Mbappe’s next destination.

Real Madrid, long-time admirers of Mbappe, appear to be in pole position to secure the coveted forward’s signature.

While the club has refrained from commenting on the matter, Spanish media outlets have been abuzz with details of the potential transfer.

Reports indicate that Madrid’s current offer falls short of their previous bid in 2022, with Mbappe reportedly seeking a substantial salary of 50 million euros ($54 million) per season and a significant signing-on bonus of 120 million euros.

Marca, a prominent Spanish media outlet, revealed that Mbappe has expressed his desire to play for Real Madrid exclusively, adding that he officially communicated his decision to leave PSG to the club’s hierarchy two days before it became public knowledge.

With negotiations ongoing and financial considerations at play, Madrid supporters and local media are eagerly anticipating Mbappe’s potential arrival at the Santiago Bernabeu.

“The countdown has started,” declared Marca, hinting at the imminent transfer.

“Seven years later everything points to Mbappe’s arrival being a reality from July 1.”

Mbappe’s previous decision to join PSG over Madrid in 2017 is now poised for a reversal, as he contemplates forming a formidable attacking trio with Vinicius Junior and Jude Bellingham in the iconic white jersey.
