The past 24 hours have seen scrambled reports over Kylian Mbappe’s future. While some sources have gone so far as to say that Real Madrid had completed his signing, others claimed that Paris Saint-Germain lead the race to secure a renewal.
Nevertheless, media had tilted towards suggesting that the Frenchman had chosen to move to Spain. It was said that the official announcement was just a matter of time after the UEFA Champions League final.
There is now another big twist in the story. Investigative journalist Romain Molina tweeted a cryptic message, likely to be about Mbappe’s future.
“Money talks (and wins)”, the tweet reads with an emoji of the Qatari flag.
Money talks (and wins) 🇶🇦— Romain Molina (@Romain_Molina) May 19, 2022
What one can decipher from this hint is that the Qatari management of PSG have managed to come up with an economic offer that Mbappe could not deny. This also means that the young star is set to renew his contract at Parc des Princes.
From the get-go, PSG’s approach to keeping Mbappe has been based on financial perks. Given their massive funding, they have been able to tempt the player with offers no other club could match.
While Real Madrid could only offer over 60% of his image rights, PSG offer him 100% of the same. Moreover, they present a larger signing bonus and an astronomical weekly salary in addition to possibly the captain’s armband, too.
Yesterday, it was also reported that the Qatar funded club were prepared to make the winger the leader of their sporting project. That would mean that Mbappe could dismiss the coach or take decisions on his teammates futures on his own.
It remains to be seen if the youngster opts for money or a solid sporting project. There is little doubt that Los Blancos have a better project and offer more success in terms of silverware.
€85 million-rated Serie A winger ‘dreams’ of playing for Real Madrid, claims father
Napoli winger Khvicha Kvaratskhelia dreams of playing for Spanish giants Real Madrid, the winger’s father has revealed following the UEFA Champions League clash between the two teams last night.
Kvaratskhelia, 22, exploded upon arriving at Napoli last year, leading them to the Serie A title on the back of his explosive performances.
The Georgian winger has been impressing in the ongoing campaign as well, although he failed to score or assist in either of Napoli’s meetings with Real Madrid in the Champions League group stages.
Kvaratskhelia has previously spoken about how he has always been a lifelong supporter of Real Madrid and grew up idolising some of the club’s legends like Cristiano Ronaldo and Guti, among others.
Now, the 22-year-old winger’s father has revealed that his son has always dreamt of and continues to dream of playing for Real Madrid.
As quoted by Fabrizio Romano, Kvaratskhelia’s father said: “Khvicha always dreamed and still dreams of playing for Real Madrid. I am sure about it.”
Talking about the fact that the winger got to play against Real Madrid, Kvaratskhelia’s father added: “For Khvicha, playing vs Real Madrid was special. In my family, everyone is a Real Madrid supporter, except me.”
Real Madrid are in the market for attacking reinforcements, but they are looking for a centre-forward next summer and have Kylian Mbappe and Erling Haaland as their main targets.
As for Kvaratskhelia, whose market value stands at €85 million, it seems quite apparent that he harbours dreams of playing for Real Madrid. But it remains to be seen if there is some interest from Los Blancos in signing the winger.
