After a much-anticipated wait, it is finally official. Kylian Mbappe is a Real Madrid player.

The French superstar has signed for Los Blancos on a five-year contract and will be arriving for free after his contract with PSG expired.

As has been widely reported, Mbappe’s move to the Santiago Bernabeu has been in place since February, when he first informed PSG that he does not intend to renew his deal.

Negotiations were never going to be a major problem given how much both parties desired to join hands.

Now that Mbappe has signed for Real Madrid, the Frenchman took to Instagram to express his pleasure at achieving what he called his ‘dream move’.

With an image of himself from his childhood, dressed in a Real Madrid jacket when he was at the club for a trial, Mbappe posted:

“A dream come true. So happy and proud to join the club of my dream, Real Madrid. Nobody can understand how excited I am right now.

“Can’t wait to see you, Madridistas, and thanks for your unbelievable support. ¡Hala Madrid!” 

As mentioned earlier, Mbappe has signed a five-year contract with Real Madrid, which will keep him at the club until 2029.

The French superstar’s official presentation is expected to take place in July, once the UEFA Euro 2024 is out of the way.

Real Madrid are set to welcome two new stars this summer, Kylian Mbappe and Endrick, but the Merengues are keen on further bolstering their squad.

Owing to the embarrassment of riches Real Madrid possess in midfield, replacing Toni Kroos with a new signing in midfield is not seen as an immediate priority.

Nonetheless, interesting opportunities will invariably be evaluated closely and it appears the name of Adrien Rabiot has entered the club’s crosshairs.

Real Madrid not the only ones interested

But, according to Gazzetta dello Sport, Real Madrid face stiff competition from Premier League clubs and Saudi Arabian teams in their pursuit of midfielder Adrien Rabiot.

The French midfielder is set to become a free agent if he chooses not to renew his contract with Juventus, a decision that seems increasingly likely.

Known for his technical prowess and versatility, Rabiot excels at playing multiple roles in midfield and notably thriving as a goal threat with late runs inside the opposition box that tend to catch opponents off guard.

While Real Madrid have no shortage of quality in midfield, Dani Ceballos’ exit could pave the way for the 29-year-old to secure a signing for Los Blancos.

However, Real Madrid would have to outmanoeuvre both the financial prowess of Saudi Arabian teams and the competitive allure of Premier League clubs to secure Rabiot’s signature.

On top of that, Juventus are also not giving up on their efforts to try and renew the contract of the French international.

In any case, Rabiot is unlikely to be a priority target for the club but they will be sure to keep a close eye on how his situation develops.
