Having missed out on several chances to sign for Real Madrid in the past, there was something different about the Frenchman’s conviction this summer. After all, it was well known that it was his final chance to sign for the club of his dreams.

Convincing the PSG board of his decision, needless to say, was the most dramatic part of the process. Not only did Mbappe have to sideline a renewal proposal with a heavy salary but he also was forced to accept lower terms of payment to join Real Madrid.

The French offices, thus, unsurprisingly threw the kitchen kink to plead with the player to continue, but their efforts did not yield any fruit.

PSG’s efforts to no avail

According to reports from L’Equipe, via Mundo Deportivo, Nasser Al-Khelaifi refused to come to terms with the French superstar leaving the club for Real Madrid. In fact, he left no stone unturned in his efforts to convince Mbappe to stay.

Among the arguments used by the Parisien administrator was the topic of the Super League planned by Florentino Perez, an idea Mbappe will become a part of if he signs for the Spanish club.

He then pointed out how several of the high-profile transfers in recent times left money for their parent clubs.

“You can’t go for free and reinforce our greatest rival. All the great players, Bellingham, Kane, are leaving money to their club,” he said, insisting now Mbappe’s departure on a free transfer negatively impacted PSG.

Set for his arrival

Having announced his departure and bid adieu to the fans at Parc des Princes, Kylian Mbappe is ever so close to an official move to Real Madrid.

Los Blancos’ place in the UEFA Champions League final appears to be the only hurdle preventing an official announcement from being made, and one can expect positive news in the coming weeks.

As revealed recently, Mbappe has already bought his €18 million house in the Spanish capital just a stones-throw away from the training complex.

At this point, his signing can be taken for granted by the Real Madrid faithful.

Real Madrid face Premier League, Saudi Arabia competition for free transfer target

Real Madrid are set to welcome two new stars this summer, Kylian Mbappe and Endrick, but the Merengues are keen on further bolstering their squad.

Owing to the embarrassment of riches Real Madrid possess in midfield, replacing Toni Kroos with a new signing in midfield is not seen as an immediate priority.

Nonetheless, interesting opportunities will invariably be evaluated closely and it appears the name of Adrien Rabiot has entered the club’s crosshairs.

Real Madrid not the only ones interested

But, according to Gazzetta dello Sport, Real Madrid face stiff competition from Premier League clubs and Saudi Arabian teams in their pursuit of midfielder Adrien Rabiot.

The French midfielder is set to become a free agent if he chooses not to renew his contract with Juventus, a decision that seems increasingly likely.

Known for his technical prowess and versatility, Rabiot excels at playing multiple roles in midfield and notably thriving as a goal threat with late runs inside the opposition box that tend to catch opponents off guard.

While Real Madrid have no shortage of quality in midfield, Dani Ceballos’ exit could pave the way for the 29-year-old to secure a signing for Los Blancos.

However, Real Madrid would have to outmanoeuvre both the financial prowess of Saudi Arabian teams and the competitive allure of Premier League clubs to secure Rabiot’s signature.

On top of that, Juventus are also not giving up on their efforts to try and renew the contract of the French international.

In any case, Rabiot is unlikely to be a priority target for the club but they will be sure to keep a close eye on how his situation develops.
