As was confirmed by Fabrizio Romano earlier today, Kylian Mbappe’s move to Real Madrid is now only a matter of time. The 25-year-old has decided to leave PSG at the end of the season when his contract expires and all signs point towards him joining Los Merengues.

Major parts of the contract have seemingly been agreed upon and an agreement regarding the image rights, which was seen as a potential issue, is also close to being completed.

It will be not long before the deal is tied up fully, although an official announcement might have to wait until the end of the season.

Mbappe’s impending arrival to Real Madrid is bound to bring a lot of eyeballs to La Liga, which had lost some of its starpower following the exits of big names like Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi over the past few years.

And Getafe president Angel Torres agrees with that sentiment as he claimed that Mbappe’s arrival is like a ‘lottery’ and that they should thank Real Madrid supremo Florentino Perez for making it happen.

Speaking to COPE (h/t Mundo Deportivo), Torres said: “We have won the lottery; we have to thank Real Madrid and Florentino. There is no better team for the arrival of Mbappe.”

Torres also spoke about the issue that happened between Mason Greenwood and Jude Bellingham when Getafe and Real Madrid clashed in La Liga earlier this month.

Bellingham allegedly called Greenwood a ‘r*pist’ during the match, with the matter being investigated. However, the Getafe president insisted that there was no issue between the clubs, saying:

“Regarding what happens on the pitch. It stays there. Greenwood is playing. We have not denounced. The news, that I’ve got, is that an American channel says, that they called him that. Getafe didn’t say anything. I didn’t talk to Florentino, because I have nothing to talk. We didn’t do anything.”

English sources: Manchester United has an ‘unbeatable’ offer for Real Madrid striker

According to a recent report from Defensa Central, Manchester United have set their sights on Real Madrid forward Joselu and for that, they are prepared to make a generous offer to lure him, proposing a two-year contract with an impressive salary of €5 million net per year.

Manchester United’s interest in signing Joselu has grown in recent months. His reputation has been on the rise, and United are willing to go all out to secure his signature. 

At Real Madrid, the forward’s exceptional performance, particularly his two crucial goals in the European Cup semi-final against Bayern Munich, has made a significant impression. 

It is said that this performance highlighted the importance of keeping a strong squad, and Joselu’s contributions have not gone unnoticed.

Real Madrid can sign him

While Joselu is currently committed to Espanyol until June 2024, Real Madrid hold a potential purchase option for him

The cost of this option is relatively low, but it is important to note that Real Madrid’s roster is quite full, with limited space for new players. 

Despite this, Joselu’s previous stint in the Premier League has not been forgotten, and Manchester United remains keenly interested in bringing him back to England.

Joselu is an old-school forward who knows what it means to face some of the toughest defences in the world. He understands the challenges and the battles that come with playing at the highest level. 

United love Joselu

Even if he is not guaranteed a starting position, his experience and knack for scoring goals make him a valuable addition to any team. 

Manchester United see these qualities in Joselu and believes he could be a significant asset to their squad.

In England, there is talk of a lucrative two-year contract on the table for the Galician footballer. This deal would significantly boost Joselu’s salary, offering him €5 million net per year. 

This substantial increase in his earnings is a key part of United’s strategy to tempt him away from Real Madrid’s Valdebebas training complex.

Carlo Ancelotti and his staff are very pleased with Joselu’s performance as he has proven to be more than just a team player, but there is a chance that they might still lose him this summer.
