It is a sea snake that keeps talking about it whenever a transfer window is approaching. But with an extension of a contract which is slow to come just a few months before his end, Kylian Mbappé seems to be closer than ever to Real de Madrid. So, are the games really made and can PSG still reverse the steam? Some answers in this article.
A glass ceiling at PSG
That could have to bet On such a trajectory in 2017 when he was still an illustrious unknown?
After a coronation of world champion in 2018, Mbappé continues to panic the counters and win the individual distinctions at PSG. Among the significant facts of his young career, his designation as the best young player of the 2018 World Cup by FIFA, with 4 goals scored. That same year, he won the first Kopa trophy, rewarding the best world player under the age of 21 and ranks fourth in the Ballon d'Or. During the 2018-2019 season, Kylian Mbappé finished top scorer in the American championship with 33 goals and was elected best player and best Hope of League 1 of the season during the UNFP trophies. After a 2020 season almost put in parentheses due to Covid 19 pandemic, the return to the field is again thunderous. The tricolor striker became in May 2021 the fourth top American scorer in history all competitions over a season with 45 goals. With such performances in club and in the national team, even the legends of football like Pelé or Miroslav Klose admit that the young prodigy could exceed their own records in the medium term. But if all the lights seem green, at the individual level, it is at the collective level that the rub. Because if the domination of PSG on a national scale is indisputable, the Parisian club combines the reverse in Europe.

Real Madrid to pass a course
There is therefore only a European coronation to the tricolor attacker to touch the stars. If PSG outrageously dominates Ligue 1 for more than 10 years, this is a completely different story in C1. Despite the billions of euros invested by the Qatar Sovereign Fund Investment Authority, for a decade, Paris Saint Germain has only managed to rise to the C1 final once. A final lost against Bayern Munich, without panache and which is added to other disillusions such as the famous "Rontada" against FC Barcelona or even recent elimination in the face of a largely attacable Real Madrid. A downside which is actually anything but a detail for the center-forward of the Blues. Because the Champions League is no more and no less than the ultimate coronation that it is possible for a player to obtain in the club. But a title of this ilk in parallel with its enormous individual performances would also be the key to potentially win a golden ball. An additional goal and landing that a club like Real Madrid and its 13 Champions League seems to be able to offer it. The repeated European disillusions of PSG in C1, and even more the last face precisely the Merengue could have sealed the fate of the attacker.
All conditions (almost) met
If Real Madrid that has made it soft eyes for several seasons seems to be a tailor -made club for Mbappé, it is also the timing that seems ideal. Arriving at the end of the contract in June 2022, the player is free to get involved wherever he wants. The opportunity to have signed without transfer compensation (but with a huge signing bonus) one of the best players in the world obviously does not leave insensitive clubs. Among them, Real Madrid, at the end of the cycle and in full reconstruction, is in a position to welcome the world champion. With an XXL contract offer and the possibility of finally winning the C1, Real Madrid seems closer than ever to convince the prodigy. Finally, the possibility of playing with his teammate in blue Karim Benzema could also tip the scale in favor of the White House. Nevertheless, Paris Saint Germain, of which Mbappé is now the spearhead, does not hear it by this ear. Thus, the latest rumors report a final attempt on the part of PSG to extend the player. The Mbappé clan, his family and probably his agent would therefore have been returned to Doha in Qatar In order to discuss a possible extension in the capital. With a budget, so to speak, unlimited, the Qataris owners and shareholders of PSG should indeed be able to align themselves with the financial offer of Real Madrid. But on the sports project, this is much less safe. So, Kylian Mbappé, future Real Madrid player? The bets are open.
