Real Madrid seemed to have had the signing of Kylian Mbappe locked in last summer. The Frenchman’s contract with PSG was expiring and an agreement was understood to be in place with the Spanish heavyweights.

However, the superstar forward made a sudden U-turn and decided to sign a new contract with the Ligue 1 champions, leaving the Merengues red-faced.

But, only a few months into the new season, reports of Mbappe growing unhappy and frustrated at PSG started doing the rounds and they have not stopped.

It has been claimed that the 24-year-old regrets snubbing Real Madrid and wants to make the jump to the Santiago Bernabeu.

And now, journalist Carlos Carpio (via Blanca Remontada), Real Madrid are also interested in signing Mbappe and have made him their No. 1 priority for the summer of 2024.

There have been some suggestions that the Merengues might look to go after the 2018 FIFA World Cup winner this summer itself.

But that is a no-go at this point as the club do not want to spend any transfer fee on his signing while it is unlikely that PSG will also negotiate his sale.

Mbappe’s contract with PSG will expire in 2024, though, at which point he will become a free agent. There is a clause in his deal that would allow him to extend his stay in the French capital for another year. However, the player would also have to agree to that, which is said to be unlikely.

As such, Mbappe could become a free agent in 2024 and Real Madrid are positioning themselves to sign him on a Bosman deal when that happens.

It remains to be seen if Los Blancos are second-time lucky in their pursuit of the 24-year-old superstar. As things stand, a move for him is not on the cards this year, but he will be a top priority for the club in 2024.

Real Madrid’s new signing Kylian Mbappe suffered a serious injury to his nose during France’s win over Austria earlier this month. The setback even saw the forward sit out the team’s next game against The Netherlands.

As revealed in an update by Diario AS, however, the player’s injury is not as bad as initially anticipated. Contrary to the tentative diagnosis that he may have fractured his nose, it now appears to only be a strong deviation.

It is clear that the player must go under the blade for a smooth recovery. While Real Madrid prefer the procedure to take place immediately, they understand the player’s decision to postpone it until after the Euros.

A month out

Mbappe’s nasal injury will take a minimum of three weeks to heal once he goes under the blade. A more realistic and safer return date would be a month to five weeks after the procedure.

The new signing, thus, will likely miss pre-season with Carlo Ancelotti’s side and there was doubt over his participation in the all-important UEFA Super Cup against Atalanta on 14th June.

The Spanish outlet, however, state that the player could make it back just in time to make his debut against the Serie A side.

After all, the Euro final is scheduled for the 15th of July. Should Mbappe make it that far with France and then undergo surgery, he will still have close to a month before Real Madrid take to the field in Warsaw.

Commitment like none other

Despite facing a serious injury blow in France’s opening clash against Austria, Mbappe insisted and pushed until the very end to participate against the Dutch side on Matchday 2.

Over the years, the French phenom has established himself as not only the epitome of consistency but also dedication. Given how playing for Real Madrid was always his dream, he will do everything in his capacity to participate in the Super Cup.

His presentation as a Real Madrid player will likely take place immediately after France conclude their campaign in the Euros and before he undergoes surgery.
