The entire world of football is eyeing the Mbappe – Real Madrid saga. The young sensation has made his desire to play for Los Blancos known publicly, and the summer is seen as the perfect time for his dream to turn into reality.

According to reports from Sergio Quirante of Gol, the PSG player’s entourage have confirmed that he will play for Real Madrid next season.

Mbappe’s contract at PSG ends in June after which he will be able to make a move as a free agent. Though the Parisiens have tried to secure his renewal, the player is firm about his commitment to join the Spanish side.

Moreover, it is said that the player already has a verbal agreement in place with Los Blancos. With Mbappe in their ranks, Real Madrid will boast of one of the most dangerous attacking trios in world football.

Karim Benzema has oozed class for the past few seasons, and Vinicius Jr. has finally found his footing as a world-class player. Together, the three will be a menace to opposition defences.

In 21 league starts for PSG this season, Mbappe boasts of a whopping 12 goals and nine assists. Further, he averages two key passes per game and has created 13 big chances in Ligue 1 alone.

Earlier today, La Liga president Javier Tebas was asked about the potential move of the French star to Real Madrid. He responded in the affirmative and added that Erling Haaland could be on his way to the Madrid-based side too.

“Madrid will get Mbappe and [Erling] Haaland as the others [Barcelona and Juventus] are half [financially] ruined.”
