The French superstar is set to end his seven-year stay at PSG by joining Los Blancos when his contract expires next summer, Anthony Evans reports for The Daily Record.


The transfer saga has dominated world football in the last four years, but Kylian Mbappe looks set to be finally on his way to Real Madrid.


The La Liga giants moved for the World Cup winner in 2022, only for the French star to change his mind at the last minute and pen a new deal at Paris Saint-Germain. But the 25-year-old has now openly declared his desire to leave the club when his contract runs out at the end of the season and goes out of his side’s 2-0 away win against Nantes last weekend, coming off the bench to net a late penalty.


And according to Spanish football expert Guillem Balague, Madrid chairman Florentino Perez has now got his man. Balague claims that the forward, who has netted a staggering 321 goals in 438 matches for club and country so far, will pen a five-year deal at the Santiago Bernabeu that will see him earn €13million (£12.8million) a season.


Mbappe is also set to bank a blockbuster € 150 million (£ 128 million) signing-on fee across the duration of his contract and negotiate an unprecedented detail to retain a significant percentage of his image rights.


However, the player does have a one-year extension clause at PSG, so his exit is likely to involve either a sale with a transfer fee or financial sacrifices on Mbappe’s part. As well as the European Championships in Germany next summer, the pacey striker is also believed to be keen on representing France in the upcoming Olympic Games in his home city of Paris, which could delay his official debut in Madrid colors.


Mbappe’s arrival in Madrid next season will further bolster boss Carlo Ancelotti’s exceptional forward line, consisting of star Brazilian duo Rodrygo and Vinicius Jr and England’s Jude Bellingham. Should legendary playmaker Luka Modric opt to depart Los Blancos at the end of his contract in the summer, then Mbappe will inherit the iconic number 10 shirt that has previously been worn by the likes of Mesut Ozil, Luis Figo, Clarence Seedorf and Gheorghe Hagi.


The superstar hopes to end his spell in Paris by helping the Ligue 1 champions finally end their hoodoo by lifting the Champions League. Luis Enrique’s side has flattered to deceive in the competition in recent seasons despite having boasted the talents of Lionel Messi and Neymar alongside Mbappe. Still, the Spaniard’s new-look team is now on the verge of claiming their place in the quarter-finals, having secured a 1-0 win against Real Sociedad in the first leg of their last 16 clashes.
