After over a week of speculative silence, there finally appears to be news pouring in related to Kylian Mbappe’s move to Real Madrid. According to reports from SER, the French superstar is expected to make the blockbuster move this summer with no further ado.

Paris Saint-Germain have decided to sell the player in the coming month, for holding on to him for another season would see him depart on a free transfer. With all parties now working in unison, negotiations should progress swiftly.

Florentino Perez has spoken numerous times about his admiration of the French international. In fact, he stalled all of Real Madrid’s talks with other potential forward recruitments earlier this month in anticipation of Mbappe’s final decision.

Now that Los Blancos have the green light, only the economic aspect of the deal remains to be settled. Reports state that the Spanish outfit have the money ready for the youngster and are determined to not let him slip from their grasp this time around.

A fee of around €200 million is being discussed as the tag on Mbappe’s name. While it may be slightly high for a player with only one year left on his contract, it is safe to say that the forward brings more than the money’s worth.

Should his move to Real Madrid go through, Mbappe will form part of one of the world’s most dangerous forward trios at Santiago Bernabeu. With Vinicius Jr to his left and Rodrygo Goes flanking him to the right, the young Galactico setup would seemingly be unstoppable.

The 24-year-old scored a staggering 29 goals and provided five assists in just 34 Ligue 1 appearances last season, finishing as the top-scorer in France. Further, he provided 1.6 key passes per game and created 17 big chances.

Real Madrid usurped the top spot in the La Liga standings from arch-rivals FC Barcelona as they defeated Girona 3-0 away at Estadi Montilivi.

It was a fine performance from Carlo Ancelotti’s men against Michel’s side, with the returning Jude Bellingham leading the way for his team.

After being benched against Las Palmas in midweek, the England international returned to the starting XI today and turned in yet another Man of the Match display for Real Madrid.

It all started with Joselu opening the scoring just 15 minutes into the game, with Bellingham assisting the goal with a special, outside-of-the-boot pass from the left side, bringing back memories of Luka Modric doing something similar a few years ago.

Talking about that special pass, Bellingham said: “I’ve been watching Luka every day for months. I just want to be creative. It took the pressure off us at the start.”

On the match and the result, the 20-year-old stated that it was a good day across the board for Real Madrid, as he said: “It was an important win. They were doing very well. We made a statement of intent to La Liga. Three goals, a clean sheet….”

It has been a truly remarkable start to life at Real Madrid for Bellingham and expressing how he feels to play for the Merengues, he exclaimed:

“I feel very good. I have freedom of movement and I’m enjoying football. Whenever I put on this shirt I always try to do my best.”

Apart from assisting Joselu’s opener, Bellingham also got his name on the scoresheet in the second period. Talking about his goal, the wonderkid said:

“It wasn’t a very good finish. I could have scored some more, but the important thing is the victory.”

The strike meant that Bellingham now has seven goals and two assists across all competitions for Real Madrid. Reflecting on his brilliant start, he said:

“It’s a good start, not bad. I would like to continue on this path and I won’t always score or assist, but I will always give my best.”

Bellingham’s celebration has been a huge hit, with kids in school, players from other clubs, and many others mimicking it. When asked how his special celebration originated, he replied:

“I don’t know where I first celebrated. I think it was with Birmingham. It’s an inspiration to see kids doing it in schools. It’s a wonderful thing.”
