The Kylian Mbappe saga is expected to continue next month when the player officially enters the last six months of his contract with PSG. He is not expected to renew his contract, as he announced the same earlier this season.

And unless his decision changes in the next six months, he will likely leave Paris on a Bosman move. This also means he is free to negotiate his free move with any club starting next week.

And as per a report by Oscar Mendez, Real Madrid are still interested in the player, and will do their best to sign him on a free transfer. Teams from the Premier League also interested in his contract.

Madrid’s case

Florentino Perez has been trying to sign Mbappe for nearly half a decade at this point, and will continue to do his best to bring the Frenchman to the club in the summer on a free transfer.

Madrid are ready to pay him a huge signing bonus and make him the highest-earning player in Europe, if previous reports are still true.

And while there is slight tactical confusion about his position on the pitch, given both him and Vinicius Jr like to play on the left-wing, that is headache Madrid will want to leave to Carlo Ancelotti, or the next coach, if there is one.

That said, Madrid are also reportedly keeping tabs on Erling Haaland. The Manchester City star is not expected to be on the move as early as the summer of 2024, but an interesting offer from the record UCL winners could definitely stir up things.

The Norwegian is, stylistically, a better fit for Madrid as a natural striker, but could end up costing them an amount upwards of €150-170 million. His price could also reach up to nearly €200 million.

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.
