The Kylian Mbappe to Real Madrid transfer saga is back in the headlines, as the Frenchman closes in on the expiry of his contract with PSG with each passing day.

The 25-year-old’s current deal runs out on June 30 and there have been contradicting rumours emerging about his future. Some suggest he has agreed to join the Merengues while others indicate that he might still renew his contract with PSG, like he did in 2022.

Mbappe’s entourage came out earlier this month and stated that the forward will not be pressured into a decision and will take a call on his future on his own terms.

However, now, reports from France, as relayed by SPORT, are claiming that Real Madrid and Mbappe already have an agreement in principle for him to join the Merengues at the end of the season.

According to the aforementioned information, Los Merengues and the Frenchman’s negotiators have laid the foundations for his signing to be completed after years of rumours and talks.

Despite that, it is claimed that Mbappe intends to listen to PSG’s arguments in a final negotiation before finally closing the deal. But, it would be too late for the 2018 FIFA World Cup winner to reconsider his position and accept the latest offer.

Furthermore, the report states that Mbappe has been offered the No. 10 jersey by Real Madrid, which is currently worn by Luka Modric.

The 38-year-old is also in the final year of his contract and is expected to move on from the Santiago Bernabeu at the end of the season.

There had been growing optimism at PSG that they had created the situation for Mbappe to accept their latest renewal offer. But now everything indicates that continuity is nowhere near.

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.
