Real Madrid growing optimistic about signing Kylian Mbappe – report

Real Madrid continues to dream of dressing Kylian Mbappe in the Royal Whites’ jersey, as the Frenchman remains one of their top targets.

Having completely alienated the World Cup winner from their squad due to the player’s unwillingness to negotiate a deal beyond 2024, PSG are hellbent on fetching a fee for their star man before he inevitably leaves on a free transfer next year.

Optimism growing in the Spanish capital

Now, according to journalist Rodra at Real Madrid, there is optimism that they will finally land Mbappe this summer.

In light of recent news affirming the possibility of an agreement between PSG and Los Blancos, the likelihood that the two sides will find common ground before the transfer window closes is increasing.

Considering Mbappe has already refused offers from Saudi Arabia, Real Madrid are currently best placed to sign the 24-year-old.

While PSG set an immensely high price for Mbappe, with €300 million as the reported figure, it is expected that as the conclusion of the transfer window draws closer, PSG will eventually soften their stance.

From Real Madrid’s perspective, a €180 million bid is more than sufficient for a player who will be a free agent after this season.

Carlo Ancelotti is ‘crazy’ about the signing

As per the report, manager Carlo Ancelotti is one of the many figureheads in the Real Madrid hierarchy that is pushing for Mbappe’s arrival.

While Ancelotti tested out a two-man frontline with various permutations and combinations involving Rodrygo, Vinicius Jr, and Joselu, plenty of chances went down the drain in the pre-season.

Mbappe’s predatory instincts in the final third are thus sought-after, as he will elevate Ancelotti’s dynamics in attack, especially with Karim Benzema no longer an option.

    If Real Madrid actually made a 180mil offer to PSG then delt with the excessive demands of Mbappe separately then he’d be on a private jet this minute.

    Yes, there is ABSOLUTELY no alternative to bringing in MBAPPE if RM is going to be competitive in the new season–with other European soccer giants gearing up for a serious showdown with RM. Indeed, Mbappe could have capitalized on the many chances Vinicius, Joselu and Rodrygo missed in the pre-season games to score goals, including those imvolving Barca and Juventus. Mpabee must be brought in this season, no matter how much it will cost to bring him.
