Kylian Mbappe has chosen Real Madrid, but will have to commit in January – report

Journalist Tomas Gonzalez-Martin has affirmed via El Debate that Paris Saint-Germain forward Kylian Mbappe has chosen Real Madrid, although the condition of his transfer hinges on the fact that he must confirm his decision in January itself.

The journalist adds that the Frenchman must finalize the signing of his contract with Real Madrid in January, however, a potential hurdle could lie in the delayed decision-making of his parents. 

As of today, the forward’s stature in the market has somewhat decreased, with Erling Haaland, Vinicius Jr., and Jude Bellingham now surpassing him, and now according to his lawyer, the optimal resolution could be a move to Real Madrid.

Mbappe regrets his past decisions

Mbappe’s advisors strongly assert that if a professional representative had guided his career, he would currently be a part of Real Madrid and would not have extended his contract with PSG. 

However, his mother, Fayza Lamari, intervened and assumed the role of his proxy and continued at PSG — a decision now viewed as a significant error. Mbappe, though reluctant to admit it openly, regrets that particular choice in his career trajectory.

Now, the player has realised that his destiny lies with Real Madrid. With his contract set to conclude at the end of the season, the window to shape his future opens in January. 

However, the decisive step must be taken during this crucial month; otherwise, Real Madrid will actively pursue Haaland as an alternative.

Mbappe wants Real Madrid, period!

Gonzalez-Martin shares an inside story by claiming that three years ago, Mbappe hired a lawyer Delphine Verheiden to reshape his destiny. 

The forward made it clear that in order to succeed in Europe, he needed to commit to signing with Real Madrid.

Now, he knows that it’s a now-or-never situation mostly because Madrid will go for Haaland if he delays his decision further. If he follows the protocol, Real Madrid will show interest but if there’s a delay, the moment will be lost.

Amidst all this, it has also come to light that PSG have offered a fresh renewal. The previous offer stood at €1 billion over a three-year period, yet he declined. 

While a renewal with PSG would immerse him in a sea of millions, he does not want to focus on money. Rather, he wants to leave a mark in European football.

As Real Madrid get closer and closer to their final game of the season against Borussia Dortmund in the UEFA Champions League, they are now sweating over the availability of one of their players.

It has already been confirmed that both David Alaba and Aurelien Tchouameni will miss the finals in London due to injuries.

Other than that, Carlo Ancelotti is likely to have the entirety of his squad available at his disposal, although there could be some concerns surrounding Andriy Lunin.

Lunin not in training for the third day in running

Indeed, Andriy Lunin has not participated in team training today, making it three days in a row heading into the Champions League final, reports Mundo Deportivo.

The Real Madrid goalkeeper is down with a fever that has kept him out of training for three days in a row now.

However, the report does add that despite not being in training for three days now, the Ukrainian international will fly to London and be on the squad list for the finals.

But with reports already suggesting that Thibaut Courtois will be starting in goal against Dortmund, Lunin’s continued absence from training only further strengthens the Belgian’s chances.

Kepa Arrizabalaga, who was absent from training on Tuesday due to personal reasons, is back working with the rest of the squad today. The Spaniard will have no involvement in Saturday’s final though.

Carlo Ancelotti is likely to go with the exact same starting lineup that he named for the Merengues’ final La Liga match against Real Betis.
