As the end of the 2023-24 season nears, all eyes are on Kylian Mbappe’s future as the youngster is yet to confirm his next step after leaving PSG.

All signs, however, indicate a move to Real Madrid which has been on the cards for several years now. With his contract running out next month, the Frenchman will sign for Los Blancos as a free-agent although a hefty signing-on bonus is expected to be involved.

An official announcement of his signing, however, is still pending and is expected in the coming weeks.

The sibling’s decision

Kylian Mbappe and his brother Ethan Mbappe have both represented PSG in recent years, albeit at different levels.

While the older brother was by far the French club’s leader on the field with his contributions and impact, the younger of the two plays for PSG’s under-19 side and has even featured twice for the senior team in Ligue 1.

In light of his elder brother’s imminent move to Real Madrid, Ethan was recently asked by a PSG fan if he was on his way to Madrid as well. He confidently replied in the negative as revealed by Fabrizio Romano and assured fans that he would stay at the club.

When will Mbappe’s move be announced?

PSG only have two games remaining in the ongoing season, one against Metz in Ligue 1 and the other against Olympique Lyon in the final of the Coupe de France.

They officially complete their season in a week, and an official announcement of Mbappe’s transfer to Real Madrid can be expected anytime after the cup final.

As revealed earlier this week, Mbappe wants the announcement of his transfer to be made before the start of the Euro 2024 in Germany, a stance that Real Madrid’s administration share.

The only hurdle, however, is that Mbappe is contractually bound to PSG until June 30th and thus cannot officially be presented as a Real Madrid player without the Parisiens’ permission.

Moreover, Los Blancos must negotiate with the French Federation to release Mbappe temporarily from the training camp which appears complicated.

Ancelotti-favourite defender will leave Real Madrid if club signs 23-year-old ace

With Kylian Mbappe’s signing now a completed objective, Real Madrid turn to what was always considered the second most critical operation of this summer – Alphonso Davies.

The Canadian full-back has been on Los Blancos’ radar for a while now, but with his contract with Bayern Munich running until 2025, his signing is seen to be a tad bit more complicated.

The Bavarians’ firm stance that they wish to persist with the speedster, needless to say, has only made the objective more complicated for Los Blancos.

No room for three

Despite Bayern Munich’s repeated advances towards Davies in recent weeks, Real Madrid are firm that they will attempt to sign the player this summer.

In light of the Canadian full-back’s possible arrival, Cadena SER reveals that Ferland Mendy will almost certainly leave Real Madrid if Davies’ signing is pulled off.

Carlo Ancelotti is clear that he has no room for three left-backs in his squad. One of Fran Garcia and Mendy must thus leave the Spanish capital in such a scenario and the Frenchman is better placed on that front.

Mendy’s current deal in Madrid runs out next year and the player has been informed that a decision over his future at the club will be taken shortly.

On track with Davies

The Spanish outlet also reveal that the Canadian speedster rejected an offer from Bayern Munich in recent hours and that his departure from the Bavarian capital is not ruled out.

Bayern Munich demand a sum of €50 million for the dynamic full-back. Real Madrid, however, have set a spending limit of €30 million for the youngster and will not exceed that sum in any scenario.

Vincent Kompany’s men thus have a critical decision to make, for allowing Davies to run down the final year on his deal may well back-fire as did the case of Kylian Mbappe with PSG.

Real Madrid, as it stands, appear to be in the driver’s seat.
