MARCA CLAIMS THAT MADRID WILL SIGN MBAPPÉ THIS SUMMER

Paris Saint-Germain forward Kylian Mbappé is no doubt a long-term transfer target for Spanish La Liga giants Real Madrid but while the French Ligue 1 giants have remained adamant that they do not want to sell their prized asset, Madrid have continued to grow in optimism that they can lure him away from the Parc des Princes this summer. Mbappé has continued to reject the contract renewal offers that have been tabled to him by PSG amid reports that he is tired of playing for the club and wants to engineer a move to the Santiago Bernabeu in the near future.

Madrid have not yet tabled a formal bid to Paris Saint-Germain because of certain concerns that he would command an extremely large fee. Mbappe's PSG teammate Neymar has agreed to terms with the French club and signed his contract extension with the side some months ago but Mbappé has not yet been convinced enough to put pen to paper on his deal. Real Madrid have recently recalled former manager Carlo Ancelotti to take over from the departed Zinedine Zidane and even though many people thought the change in manager would change Mbappe's mind about wanting a Madrid move, it seems to have not.

A lot of former footballers including Nicholas Anelka and Thierry Henry have all tipped Mbappé to leave PSG and sign for Madrid if he wants to boost his chances of winning the UEFA Champions League title and the Ballon d'Or award as well but it has not been easy. Even if Mbappé declares that he wants to move to Madrid and hands in a transfer request, PSG would not want to lose him on a cheap and would place a large sum on his head.

Spanish newspaper outlet Marca says that Mbappe's Madrid move is inevitable, and the transfer will likely happen before next season.
