Journalist Jose Felix Diaz of MARCA has shared exciting news that FIFA aims to host the final match of the 2030 World Cup at the Santiago Bernabeu Stadium and to make this a reality, the governing body has already approached Real Madrid to finalize an agreement.

The 2030 FIFA World Cup will be jointly hosted by Morocco, Portugal, and Spain and despite some challenges, FIFA is optimistic about holding the final at the Bernabeu.

Interestingly, one major hurdle is the requirement to dedicate the stadium for three months, which could be problematic for Real Madrid.

However, the strong relationship between FIFA and Real Madrid is expected to facilitate the agreement.

Real Madrid are undecided

Currently, Real Madrid are hesitant to surrender their stadium for such an extended period due to the significant financial implications. 

While the club acknowledges the prestige of hosting a World Cup final, negotiations are crucial to finding a solution that benefits both parties.

Discussions between FIFA and Real Madrid are ongoing, but many details, including financial distributions, still need to be finalized. 

However, there is ample time to reach an agreement, as the final schedule for the 2026 World Cup was only released less than a year ago.

Real Madrid and FIFA working to find a solution

Both FIFA and Real Madrid are working to find a way to make the stadium available for the World Cup without disrupting the club’s activities. 

There is a shared optimism that an agreement will be reached, and if the FIFA Congress ratifies the 2030 World Cup in December, the Bernabeu is set to be the centrepiece of the event.

This event is further boosted by the fact that the relationship between Real Madrid’s president, Florentino Perez, and FIFA’s president, Gianni Infantino, is very strong. 

Overall, while challenges remain, the collaborative spirit and mutual respect between FIFA and Real Madrid give hope that the Bernabeu will host the 2030 World Cup final, adding another chapter to its storied history.

Real Madrid realized one of their biggest sporting and commercial ambitions by signing Kylian Mbappe on a free transfer this summer.

Adhering faithfully to their Galacticos philosophy, signing Mbappe exemplified that the Merengues pursue not only elite talent but also renowned figures who carry global recognition.

While Mbappe has yet to play a single minute for the club, he is already busy breaking records at the club.

Mbappe’s shirt sales are through the roof

Indeed, according to El Chiringuito, within a mere day of its launch, Kylian Mbappe’s jersey sales have soared to an astounding 450% higher than those of Jude Bellingham.

Given Bellingham’s huge name in football, this impressive statistic highlights a fervent demand for the French star’s jerseys among supporters worldwide.

Moreover, the club’s online store has reaped substantial financial rewards, generating an impressive sum of €800,000 solely from the sale of Mbappe’s jerseys.

On top of that, they have sold more than 7,000 Mbappe shirts at the club’s physical store which will have provided further revenue boost.

Considering that the 2018 World Cup winner will don the number 9 shirt adds to the incredible demand, as several greats of the game have represented this number in the past, including Karim Benzema most recently.

Real Madrid struggling to keep up with the demand

Reports have mentioned that Real Madrid are appealing for patience from their fans as they handle the high volume of sales.

In fact, Real Madrid eventually posted a note on their website warning that delivery delays of up to 4-6 extra weeks may occur due to the great demand for Mbappe’s kits.

Tuesday, July 16 is set aside for his formal presentation at the Santiago Bernabeu, where a full house is expected to greet him, potentially with a large chunk of the fans wearing Mbappe jerseys.
