Over the past week, there have been numerous rumours and speculations about the future of Kylian Mbappe, most of which suggest that the PSG star is headed for Real Madrid in the summer.

It has been confirmed that Mbappe will leave PSG at the end of the season when his contract expires. And even though there has been talk of Manchester City being approached by some of his representatives, all signs indicate that the French forward is headed to Spain.

In fact, earlier today reports went as far as claiming that the 2018 FIFA World Cup winner had even signed a five-year contract with Los Blancos which would keep him at the Santiago Bernabeu until 2029.

PSG president privately acknowledges Mbappe’s Real Madrid move

Although nothing is official and confirmed as of yet, PSG president Nasser Al-Khelaifi has privately acknowledged that Mbappe is headed to Real Madrid, reports AS.

Al-Khelaifi, president of the French club, was in Doha this weekend where he held several meetings with people he trusts, and in one of those meetings, to which AS had access, he acknowledged that “Mbappe has it done with Madrid 100%.”

Real Madrid have been very cautious given that the fact that both they and PSG are alive in the Champions League could lead to a future meeting between the two teams, which would put them in a very awkward position.

At the same time, though, Los Blancos were very clear that they could not wait until May, as happened in the spring of 2022, and for a last-minute twist to happen that could leave the club in the lurch.

Therefore, Real Madrid fans can now breathe easy, because the Galactico signing for 2024 is already a done deal and it is only a matter of time before the parties involved make it official.

Real Madrid will sign off on their successful La Liga campaign today with a fixture against Real Betis at the Santiago Bernabeu.

The game, being seen as a final preparation for the UEFA Champions League final against Borussia Dortmund, sees manager Carlo Ancelotti field his strongest possible lineup.

All eyes will obviously be on the retiring Toni Kroos, who bids goodbye to the Bernabeu in what will be his final home game as a Real Madrid player.

The German international starts in the centre of the park alongside Federico Valverde, while Eduardo Camavinga slots in as the No. 6.

Meanwhile, Real Madrid captain, Nacho Fernandez, also starts in what could be his last game at the Bernabeu as well.

Nacho pairs up with Antonio Rudiger in defence, flanked by the full-back pairing of Dani Carvajal and Ferland Mendy. Thibaut Courtois starts in goal ahead of Andriy Lunin and Kepa Arrizabalaga.

Up front, Vinicius Jr. starts in attack, partnering up with Rodrygo Goes. Top scorer Jude Bellingham occupies the attacking midfield role for Real Madrid.
