At the age of 20, Kylian Mbappe shone in the 2018 World Cup. At that time, the public knew him better and the past images of the French striker were searched.
In it, a picture of Mbappe in his teens, wearing jeans and a green hoodie, lying on his bedroom bed, surrounded by posters of Cristiano Ronaldo during his time playing for Real Madrid plastered all over the wall is more noticeable. chief.
The PSG star called CR7 an inspiration for his career, and also the player he admires the most. In 2017, Mbappe temporarily put aside his childhood dream to choose to play for PSG. But there is always a feeling that one day the World Cup’s top scorer in 2022 will become a Real player.
Mbappe turns back
Nearly 6 years have passed, Mbappe once again informed PSG that he will not renew his contract. The move comes less than 12 months after he turned down interest from Real and committed his future to the Paris capital club for at least two more seasons.
At this time, Mbappe pushed PSG into a difficult position. They are forced to sell him or risk losing everything in the summer of 2024. Meanwhile, “Los Blancos” is always lurking and ready to grab Mbappe whenever possible.
This is the right time for PSG to make money from Mbappe. The French international is a native of Paris and one of the best players in the world. But he always kept an eye on the Spanish capital. At the same time, when a striker is needed, it is almost certain that Real will splash money.
Having excellent players helps to create a certain degree of success. Mbappe is very important for PSG with the goal of conquering the top of the continental cup. However, putting aside the romance, from the perspective of PSG, the value that Mbappe brings is decreasing. Their star player gradually became distracted.
It all started last summer when he made huge financial demands on PSG. The move was quickly accepted. He wanted more money, more power than anyone else in the dressing room. PSG agreed to every last detail, before celebrating as if they had just got a bargain.
However, Mbappe is said to regret his decision to stay and immediately call Florentino Perez, promising the possibility of wearing a Real shirt in the future. In fact, Mbappe feels not attached to PSG for long. Sooner or later, he will leave the Parc des Princes. At that time, selling Mbappe was the best option for PSG.
During the past time, Mbappe has always attracted attention with the noise outside the field. The player born in 1998 publicly protested against the host team for arbitrarily using his image to promote the 2023/24 season ticketing campaign.
PSG president, Nasser Al-Khelaifi, was forced to have a talk with the PSG dressing room to resolve the problems. The Parc des Prince club had to give in and remove the promotional video from all social media platforms.
From the beginning of the season, Mbappe became the cause of many controversies at PSG. He was unhappy with his teammates after being eliminated from the Champions League. Mbappe also criticized Neymar’s lack of focus and anger when PSG stripped Presnel Kimpembe’s vice-captain transfer to him. The French striker looks unhappy. “Mbappe distanced himself from PSG,” Reuters concluded.
However, PSG still tried to keep Mbappe. L’Equipe said the Paris capital team must pay a bonus of up to 60 million euros a year for Mbappe. In addition, the former Monaco player’s monthly salary is up to 6 million euros.
Currently, when the situation cannot be saved, PSG is ready to let Mbappe leave. According to the New York Times, PSG wants to earn at least 200 million euros. This could be the best thing Mbappe has done for PSG. Last year, Mbappe admitted that he did not want to leave PSG for free, and wanted the team to make money.
By announcing his desire to leave before the 2023 summer transfer window opens, Mbappe is fulfilling that promise. PSG can still hold the advantage in negotiating with Real. Selling Mbappe and using the money to rebuild the team collectively is not a bad plan.
Real wants Mbappe in the summer of 2024. However, parting with Karim Benzema changes the plan. The Spanish Royal team needs a striker to lead the attack. Mbappe is the perfect piece to fill the void left by Benzema. “Instead of spending a large amount of money recruiting Harry Kane, Real has a reason to focus on Mbappe,” Goal said.
Real is no longer a “Galaxy”, but they are always ready for the biggest signings. Not surprised if one or two more names leave the Bernabeu to make way for Mbappe. Don’t forget Real once ruthlessly sold Mesut Ozil even though he was the mainstay in 2013.
Mbappe has always considered Ronaldo as an idol and his dream of wearing a Real shirt has been formed since then. Hard to blame Mbappe when his mind is no longer on PSG.
Mbappe’s departure is sooner or later. Therefore, this summer is the best time to end the story, open a new chapter for the player, for PSG and for Real.
