Kylian Mbappe has finally made up his mind. He has decided he wants to leave PSG at the end of the season and has communicated the same to club president Nasser Al Khelaifi, as per a report by Fabrizio Romano and David Ornstein.

The terms of the departure are yet to be fully agreed, but he will leave Paris in the coming transfer window on a free agent.

His departure will save PSG nearly €200 million per year, and they are set to focus on their youth project, while hoping to develop the collective group rather than shelling money on one individual.

Mbappe was always leaning towards joining Real Madrid at the end of the season, but had reportedly not been able to make his mind up about the transfer as the terms offered by the Spanish giants were less than what he was making at PSG.

Influential members of his entourage were left unconvinced by the offer presented by Madrid, which delayed the process.

The official announcement about his departure is expected in the coming months once the situation and terms of the same are finalised between the two parties.

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.
