With each passing day, the transfer of Kylian Mbappe from Paris Saint-Germain to Real Madrid keeps getting closer.

The French superstar will see his contract with PSG run out at the end of the season. So far, the forward has thwarted all the attempts from the club to renew his contract, with all signs pointing towards the 23-year-old desiring a move to the Santiago Bernabeu.

However, PSG are not going down without a fight as they continue to try and convince Mbappe to sign a new contract and prolong his stay at Parc des Princes.

So far, PSG have tried to change Mbappe’s stance by having the President of France, Emmanuel Macron, involved in their bid to have the striker sign a new contract.

The Parisian giants are also leaning heavily on Achraf Hakimi, who happens to be Mbappe’s close friend within the dressing room, to help change his mind.

Now, Defensa Central reports that PSG have turned to club legend Ronaldinho as they try and do everything to prevent Mbappe from joining Real Madrid in the summer.

The Brazilian icon spent two years at PSG between 2001 and 2003 when he was signed from Gremio. He enjoyed great success at the club, even though Les Parisiens were far from being the superclub they are now, before moving to Barcelona.

Ronaldinho has now urged Mbappe to continue at the club, insisting that he can grow into the greatest player ever by staying in Paris.

Speaking on ‘Prime Video Sport’, he said: “ He can become the best player in the world and win the Champions League playing for Paris Saint-Germain.”

“If I want to see him stay here? That would be lovely, wouldn’t it? To see the best players evolve together in Paris and win the Champions League. That would be wonderful.”

Whether Ronaldinho’s words have any sway over Mbappe’s decision or not remains to be seen. As things stand, though, an exit from PSG looks the likeliest outcome.

According to a report from El Chiringuito TV, Paris Saint-Germain superstar Kylian Mbappe wants to be presented as the new Real Madrid player before the beginning of UEFA Euro 2024.

It is to be noted that Euro commences on June 14, a mere 13 days after this season’s UEFA Champions League final.

Now, PSG will have their commitment in Ligue 1 until May 18, and depending on their performance in the Champions League, they will officially end their 2023/24 campaign.

At best, if it ends in May itself, Mbappe can see his dream turning into reality but if the French team somehow reaches the UCL final, the French superstar will have to report for international duty soon after

As such, there would not be any fee involved in the transfer since Mbappe will move as a free agent, but as reported before, the team from the Spanish capital will pay him an extravagant signing-on bonus expected to be around €120-150 million.

As of today, both Real Madrid and Mbappe are working on the final details of the contract. While it is assumed that he would earn a fixed salary of €14 million each season in addition to €30 million in bonuses, there remains a disparity regarding his image rights.

At PSG, Mbappe holds 100% of his image rights but Madrid have a policy that has only been mended once when a certain Cristiano Ronaldo joined from Manchester United in 2009.

Ever since the Galacticos era, Madrid have reserved 50% of the player’s image rights, but in the case of Mbappe, the team from the Spanish capital is okay with having just 20% of it as even that would churn in big money.

Once these details are sorted, Real Madrid can make the official announcement of the deal in collaboration with PSG. Once this is done, everyone will wait for PSG to end their campaign and depending on that, Mbappe will arrange his travel to Madrid.
