Real Madrid have made a breakthrough in their pursuit of Paris Saint-Germain star Kylian Mbappe as he agrees to move to Spain at the end of the season, MySportDab reports.
This is in line with a report by Germany Media outlet, Bild, who have revealed that the World Cup winner has finally agreed to join Real Madrid as a free agent when his contract in Paris expires in June.
Before now, PSG have turned down two bids in the past years as they hope to convince their star man to stay but the latest news is that Mbappe has refused to sign a new contract as his heart is set for the Spanish capital.
Mbappe has long been Real Madrid president Florentino Perez’s top priority and he is now reportedly months away from landing the 23-year-old.
Mbappe will, according to the report sign for Madrid as a free agent in a mega deal worth £41.5m per year in wages. This is roughly around £900k per week.
PSG, who face Real Madrid in the last-16 of the UEFA Champions League, have been angered at the pursuit of Mbappe from the Spanish side.
Back in August, PSG sporting director Leonardo accused his counterparts at Real Madrid of ‘illegal’ behaviour, accusing them of directly contacting Mbappe and his camp.
Mbappe is viewed as one of the most impressive players in world football and he perfectly fits the bill for Real Madrid’s long-established ‘Galactico’ transfer policy.
The World Cup-winning striker moved to PSG initially on loan from Monaco in 2017, where he has gone on to elevate his game to even greater heights.
Mbappe has long been an admirer of Real Madrid and may now ply his trade there next summer unless PSG could get the player to sign a new contract which is in doubt at the moment.
If Mbappe leaves for Santiago Bernabeu, PSG may turn their attentions to Dortmund striker, Erling Haaland, who will also become a free agent next year and has a release clause of less than £80m.
