After years of anticipation, Kylian Mbappe is slated to finally grace the pitch in the iconic white of Real Madrid next season, marking the long-awaited conclusion to the transfer saga.

Mbappe has informed PSG of his choice not to sign a contract extension this summer. Having served around six years with the Parisians, he will soon be a free agent and Real Madrid are expected to be his next stop.

Luis Enrique hopes for an amicable ending

PSG coach Luis Enrique took over the helm in Paris last summer and has done incredibly well to extract Mbappe’s best version.

And while the pair is poised to part ways in merely a couple of months, Enrique expressed his heartfelt desire for a positive conclusion to the narrative involving PSG and Kylian Mbappe.

“I would love for the story to end beautifully for PSG and for Mbappé, for everyone,” he articulated.

In his statement, he emphasized solidarity, stating, “We are all in the same boat.”

PSG will soon face off against Real Madrid’s arch-rivals Barcelona in the UEFA Champions League quarterfinals, which provides the French World Cup winner the perfect platform to warrant a hero’s send-off.

Why Mbappe continues to remain tight-lipped over his future

Although Real Madrid are the clear favourites to acquire the 25-year-old, Mbappe has not disclosed his future intentions as of yet, despite entering the final stages of the season.

That is because he will not make any announcements as long as there is a chance to see PSG vs Real Madrid in the Champions League.

Mbappe will only open up when the time is appropriate. He has no desire to cause needless drama or become the center of attention in the unlikely event that the two sides clash.

Of all players people would have expected to turn up for El Clasico today from Real Madrid, it was the backup right-back Lucaz Vazquez who delivered an absolute masterclass of a performance in their 3-2 win.

The Spaniard played Barcelona out of the park starting as the right-back, and ran circles around Joao Cancelo.

He won the penalty for the first goal, scored the equaliser in the 73rd minute, and then assisted Jude Bellingham’s winner in the 91st minute.

“Great night, like many others at the Santiago Bernabeu. We are very grateful to the fans, they created a spectacular atmosphere. We are where want to be, six points away from winning the league,” Vazquez said, as quoted by MARCA.

Coming off an exhausting 120 minutes vs Manchester City in the Champions League, not many would have expected the shift Madrid put in tonight, especially after trailing on two occasions.

“The team, despite the great effort in Manchester, showed their face again. We once again played a great game, and we did everything in our power to achieve this win that gives us the advantage in the league,” Vazquez commented on it.

Now 11 points clear off Barcelona, Madrid can almost sniff La Liga out, and according to Vazquez, it reflects their work well.

“I think this difference speaks well about our work. We had a very good season in La Liga, and we are on the right track.”

As for his own performance, the Spaniard was modest, and said, “I am very happy to be able to help the team. A lot of things went well today, and that is important for everyone”

He was asked two very important things, as well, including his possible inclusion in the 2024 European Championship, to which he replied, “I would love for Luis de la Fuente to call me up for the Euros.”

And more importantly, he also spoke about the controversial penalty incident, but claimed that it was 100% a penalty. “I cut back and his leg caught me. It was a penalty.”

Real Madrid have five days off now before they travel to the Basque county to take on Real Sociedad in the league before travelling to the Allianz Arena to face Bayern Munich in the Champions League semi-finals.
