Kylian Mbappe’s speculated move to Real Madrid can go down in history as one of football’s most powerful transfers of all time.

After all, the player is currently at the peak of his form and a clear contender for the title of the best player in the world.

Needless to say, the transfer of such a massive player has to be handled with utmost caution, considering the economic and sporting impact an official announcement will have on his current employers and league.

The news of his move to Real Madrid, thus, has been moving slowly in recent weeks. Spanish outlet MARCA, however, brings out an explosive update on the saga.

Agreement done

The report revealed that the French phenom has already signed a five-year contract with Real Madrid. The official signing was completed in February.

The announcement of his move, however, has been on hold considering the situation in the UEFA Champions League.

After all, both PSG and Real Madrid are alive in the competition and could meet in the finale as they are on opposite halves of the draw. An announcement before the two teams face off in the competition would prove chaotic for the Parisiens.

Therefore, nothing will be announced as long as PSG are alive in the European competition.

Possible dates of announcement presentation

If Real Madrid and PSG do not face each other in the UCL owing to either side’s elimination, the announcement of Mbappe’s signing for the Spanish giants may arrive before the end of the season.

In fact, it is likely that it will be announced in the final round of Ligue 1 if PSG maintain its lead and win a title so that the player can receive a fitting farewell.

The Spanish publication also reveals that Mbappe’s official presentation as a new Real Madrid player will take place either before or after the massive Taylor Swift concert planned at the Santiago Bernabeu.

The American singer will perform at the venue twice—on May 29 and 30—and Los Blancos hopes to use the large audience to present their signing of the decade.

Even with all the excitement around Kylian Mbappe, it is Vinicius Junior, who continues to be Real Madrid’s biggest star.

In the past few years, the Brazilian has witnessed substantial growth, notably establishing himself as one of the best players in world football.

Vinicius’ rapid rise to prominence has been backed by numbers as well, with the forward racking up 82 goals and 75 assists in 262 competitive matches for Real Madrid.

Vinicius on receiving advice from Ronaldo

In a recent media interaction, Vinicius Junior, when talking about his success at Real Madrid, revealed that the forward constantly receives advice from his compatriot and former Real Madrid legend Ronaldo.

Vinicius particularly pointed out Ronaldo’s advice in 1v1 situations and how it has helped him improve in such scenarios.

“Ronaldo always calls me and gives me advice, he teaches me so many things. Since he told me that his favourite thing is a 1v1 vs a GK, I thought about it a lot and started working on it really hard,” Vinicius said (h/t Madrid Zone).

“Now, every time I’m in a 1v1 with a GK, I’m the calmest guy in the world. Ever since that conversation with Ronaldo, I stopped being afraid of making mistakes in a 1v1,” the forward added.

Vinicius has indeed witnessed an improvement in his 1v1 play in recent years, which has been reflected in his higher goalscoring numbers.

This season, the forward has netted 23 goals in all competitions while racking up 11 assists. His goalscoring prowess, coupled with his ability in 1v1 situations could prove to be critical as Real Madrid take on Borussia Dortmund in the UEFA Champions League final next month.

The Brazilian international, though, will be up against a challenging defensive duo of Mats Hummels and Nico Schlotterbeck, who have been able to keep the opposition attacks quiet this season.
