In a huge update, German publication BILD (h/t Mundo Deportivo) is reporting that Kylian Mbappe has made a decision over his future and wants to join Real Madrid from PSG in the summer.

The 25-year-old’s future has once again been dominating the headlines as he has less than six months left on his contract with PSG.

The Parisian giants have been trying hard to convince him to sign a new contract, using the lure of allowing him to play at the Olympics in the summer as bait.

Mbappe decides to join Real Madrid

However, as per the aforementioned report, the 2018 FIFA World Cup has indeed decided that he wants to join Real Madrid in the summer as a free agent.

Foot Mercato’s Santi Aouna had already reported the same earlier in January, but Mbappe’s administration had moved in quickly to dismiss those rumours.

But, now, BILD is also claiming that Mbappe will be bound to the Spanish capital club once his current deal with PSG runs out on June 30.

Wages yet to be finalised

This development seems to be in line with reports from France earlier this week which suggested that there was an agreement in principle between Mbappe and Real Madrid.

It is further claimed that the French superstar has agreed to reduce his wages to join the Merengues. Despite that, he is still holding out for a bumper contract worth around €70 million per season.

It would completely shatter the wage scale in place at Real Madrid and the report states that Florentino Perez would be willing to offer around half of the Frenchman’s demands, i.e., €35 million per year.

Real Madrid, for now, are waiting on the final yes from Mbappe and his camp before things can be set in motion and an agreement can be reached. For now, it appears that the forward is leaning towards the Bernabeu.

Shocking Modric, Vinicius, Cristiano fact makes Real Madrid fans ‘feel old’

Luka Modric is set to stay with Real Madrid for another season, meaning he will have played more seasons with Vinicius Jr. (7) than he did with Cristiano Ronaldo (6). 

Feeling old yet? We thought so too!

Modric joined Real Madrid in the summer of 2012 after four seasons with Tottenham Hotspur. On the other hand, Vinicius Jr. joined Real Madrid in 2018. 

By the end of the 2023/24 season, Modric and Vinicius will have spent six seasons together. This is the same number of seasons Modric played with Cristiano Ronaldo, who was at Madrid from 2009 to 2018. 

However, with Modric set to stay for another season, he will surpass that, playing more seasons with Vinicius than with Ronaldo, the club’s all-time top scorer.

A new contract for Modric

It is important to note that Real Madrid and Modric have reached an agreement in principle for his contract renewal for another year.

At 38, Modric’s contract was set to expire at the end of the current season. For a while, it seemed the Croatian star might leave Santiago Bernabeu this summer. 

However, things have changed recently, and Real Madrid have decided to offer him a new contract. 

Interestingly, Real Madrid have also offered a renewal to Toni Kroos with club president Florentino Perez personally involved in the negotiations.

Modric and Kroos will continue

Reports suggest that Modric has agreed to the new proposal, with an agreement in principle now in place. It is also expected that Kroos will accept his offer, meaning Real Madrid will keep both veteran players for another season.

The Croatian was reportedly willing to accept a pay cut and a reduced role in the team to continue playing for Real Madrid. This flexibility may have sped up the agreement process.

His willingness to adapt to a reduced role and accept a pay cut has likely influenced the club’s decision to renew his contract for one more year.
