While Barcelona are struggling to win against a fourth division side in the Copa del Rey round of 32, Real Madrid seem to have pulled off one of the biggest transfers of the decade.

A report from Santi Aouna suggests that Madrid have reached an agreement with Mbappe over a summer move. The Frenchman will join the Spanish capital outfit on a free transfer after his contract with PSG clocks up.

As early as today, it was reported that Mbappe has not taken a decision over his future, and that he is not completely happy with the terms offered by the record UCL winners, which are lower than their offer last summer.

The World Cup winner wanted to take his time to evaluate his decision, with a report stating that he was also open to a move to the Premier League, with Liverpool interested in signing him.

He also spoke about his future following the win against Toulouse in the Trophee des Champions final during the week.

“In 2022, I did not know my decision until May. If I know what I want to do, I would not let the decision drag on. It would not make sense.”

“I did not make my decision but we have an agreement with the president Al Khelaifi so it means that all parties are protected,” he said speaking about the loyalty bonus clause in his contract, which will only be triggered if he renews.

Madrid have been chasing Mbappe’s signature for over five years now, and if there is any truth to this report, it could be one of the biggest transfers in recent years, especially considering it is for free.

Real Madrid will sign off on their successful La Liga campaign today with a fixture against Real Betis at the Santiago Bernabeu.

The game, being seen as a final preparation for the UEFA Champions League final against Borussia Dortmund, sees manager Carlo Ancelotti field his strongest possible lineup.

All eyes will obviously be on the retiring Toni Kroos, who bids goodbye to the Bernabeu in what will be his final home game as a Real Madrid player.

The German international starts in the centre of the park alongside Federico Valverde, while Eduardo Camavinga slots in as the No. 6.

Meanwhile, Real Madrid captain, Nacho Fernandez, also starts in what could be his last game at the Bernabeu as well.

Nacho pairs up with Antonio Rudiger in defence, flanked by the full-back pairing of Dani Carvajal and Ferland Mendy. Thibaut Courtois starts in goal ahead of Andriy Lunin and Kepa Arrizabalaga.

Up front, Vinicius Jr. starts in attack, partnering up with Rodrygo Goes. Top scorer Jude Bellingham occupies the attacking midfield role for Real Madrid.
