To say that Kylian Mbappe is invaluable to Paris Saint-Germain would be an understatement. The Frenchman has carried the Paris based team through both domestically and in Europe this season despite having some of football’s biggest names in his dressing room.

The thought of the youngster departing PSG is unthinkable for the Parisian fans and management alike. Unsurprisingly, the club went all out to secure a contract renewal with the World Cup winner.

Despite being offered astronomical wages, the captain’s armband and 100% of his image rights, amongst other perks, Mbappe seems set to depart the French side in the summer. Real Madrid are best placed to sign him.

In recent weeks, Los Blancos are said to have finalised the details of his transfer. Moreover, it was reported that the Madrid based side planned to announce the move after the UEFA Champions League final.

Marco Verratti was asked about the future of his teammate and his possible move to Real Madrid. The Italian international said he did not know much about Mbappe’s decision.

“Mbappe? It’s his decision and I’m waiting, like you. When I’m off and see notifications that say Kylian is in Madrid, it gives me a stomach ache (laughs). Even if afterwards he said to me: I was on vacation,” he was quoted as saying.

The forward’s contract ends in June, after which he can join any team of his choice on a free transfer. Needless to say, this comes as a big blow to PSG’s plans for next season while providing Carlo Ancelotti with the biggest boost he could ask for.

Javier Tebas may be at war with Florentino Perez over the Super League, but the La Liga president has always been a vocal supporter of Real Madrid.

Not too long ago, he spoke extensively about Real Madrid’s possible signings of Kylian Mbappe and Alphonso Davies, going as far as to state that the Frenchman might have already signed a deal with Los Blancos.

Speaking at the Football Business Summit in London recently, Tebas once again unravelled many questions about Real Madrid’s financial situations while also touching upon Kylian Mbappe and Jude Bellingham.

On finances and Mbappe

He began by praising Los Blancos for navigating their finances with utmost caution during the crucial years of the pandemic in addition to their splendid revenue generation as revealed by Mundo Deportivo.

“Real Madrid have had a very optimal management, before, during and after the pandemic. Madrid have been earning an average of €30 million per year in the last ten years at least.”

“I don’t know what they are going to pay Mbappé, but knowing their financial situation, they are not going to have a problem paying him. I think it will be much less than what PSG pays him,” he added on the speculated arrival of Mbappe.

Speaking about how Real Madrid are able to make such massive signings while other clubs in the league continue to struggle to meet La Liga’s spending limits, the league president said,

“They have removed two large salary burdens in recent years, Eden Hazard and Gareth Bale. And then they incorporated players with not-so-high investments.

“Real Madrid have then had great benefits, they achieved a significant reduction in the salaries of the players.”

Tebas further stressed the fact that Real Madrid’s financial situation was so rosy that they could invest massive amounts in squad reinforcements without facing any repercussions for the same. He insisted that it was not a bias in any way but a reward for a team that managed situations well.

“We can’t limit the one who is doing well. According to January data, Madrid could invest €700 million euros in transfers. They will not spend that at all, but the situation is so good that they could.”

Praise for Bellingham

Finally, the Spanish administrator praised Real Madrid star Jude Bellingham for his imperious form this season and went as far as to call him the best player in the world.

“Bellingham is currently the best player in the world, for his fitness and his way of playing. It is very important for us to have the best, even if you don’t always have everyone, to grow and for everything.”

“If we are all honest, he has exceeded everyone’s expectations and we hope that he will continue like this for many years,” he concluded.
