Speaking to COPE, La Liga president Javier Tebas has claimed that he has a feeling that Kylian Mbappe has already signed for Real Madrid.

The 25-year-old’s contract with PSG expires at the end of the season and he has informed the French champions that he will be on his way out when that happens.

PSG have seemingly accepted the situation as well, with their manager Luis Enrique hinting at the superstar forward’s departure this past weekend.

Mbappe may have already signed with Real Madrid, says Tebas

Now, La Liga president Tebas, who has never been shy about commenting on the Mbappe to Real Madrid speculations, has claimed that the 2018 FIFA World Cup winner may have already signed for the Spanish capital club.

“I have the feeling that Mbappé has signed for Real Madrid,” Tebas told COPE.

On what the Frenchman’s arrival would mean for La Liga, he added: “He’ll be another star in La Liga like [Jude] Bellingham, Vinicius Jr., [Antoine] Griezmann, and [Robert] Lewandowski.”

Talks in final stages

As reported earlier today, negotiations between Mbappe and Real Madrid are in the final stages, with a deal all but agreed upon.

It has been reported that the Frenchman will be earning a salary worth around €19-22 million, along with bonuses, as well as a mammoth signing bonus in excess of €120 million. There will also be a Ballon d’Or clause in his deal worth €15 million.

Despite the hefty investment, Real Madrid will not have to make any sales to accommodate Mbappe on their roster, as they have no problems with their salary cap, Tebas had revealed earlier this month.

“Financially, they are very reactive. At the moment, their financial results are very good and they can spend much more than they spend. Madrid have been very prudent financially and have prepared for the signing of Mbappe,” he had said.

“Their strategy is not short-term. They don’t have to sell anyone to afford Mbappe. They really don’t.”

Real Madrid’s collective strength this season cannot be questioned as coach Carlo Ancelotti has assembled a well-oiled side that knows little except bagging victories.

Yet, even in this formidable lineup, Real Madrid’s top scorer this season, Jude Bellingham, stands out above the rest.

The Englishman has exceeded all expectations since joining the Merengues and was once more a key factor for Real Madrid against Barcelona recently.

His last-minute winner against the Catalans saw Madrid essentially confirm their La Liga victory, as the Royal Whites maintain a dominant 11-point lead over Barcelona with seven games left to spare.

Praise from an international teammate

Now, Manchester City sensation Phil Foden, Bellingham’s international teammate and foe from last week has come out to shower praise upon the midfielder.

“I can’t believe his age. I’ve never seen anyone so mature for their age. I feel like he has a gift from God with his physique,” Foden told Mail Sport.

Not only does Foden get to witness Bellingham witness his talents in the English camp, but he also suffered at his hands in Real Madrid’s second-leg quarter-final affair against Manchester City.

Even though the Real Madrid star did not stamp his name on the scoreboard, a moment of great poise under pressure allowed Madrid to take the lead early on.

When asked if Bellingham has ever asked for advice, Foden replied that he does not need any considering he is level-headed and has a supportive family.

“I don’t think he needs any advice, to be honest. He’s an exceptional player. He has a good head on his shoulders. I think he has a good family around him. He is someone I look at, and I don’t see any weaknesses in him,” the 23-year-old claimed.

Bellingham is flying high

In addition to triumphing over Barcelona and Manchester City with great performances, Bellingham was busy collecting wins off the pitch.

Indeed, the 20-year-old was recently awarded the Laureus Award for the Breakthrough of the Year for 2024.

With 21 goals and 10 assists for Real Madrid this season, he has become a beacon of reliability for the Merengues this season.

And the club will be relying on him heavily in the upcoming showdown with Bayern Munich in the Champions League semi-finals.
