Kylian Mbappe’s mother pushing him to join Real Madrid – report
Countless negotiations, discussions, and obstacles have stood in the way, prolonging Real Madrid’s efforts to sign Kylian Mabppe, but the saga could be resolved one way or the other in the coming weeks.
Florentino Perez’s wait might not be in vain after all, as according to Ramón Álvarez de Mon, in order for Mbappé to join Real Madrid this summer or in 2024, the club and player are executing a coordinated strategic plan.
If PSG does not trade him this summer, the Frenchman will sign a contract with Real Madrid in January 2024.
With one year left on the World Cup winner’s contract, PSG are desperate to cash out on him before potentially bidding him farewell on a free transfer in 2024.
Mbappe has reassured his desire to see out his year left with the Parisians, but the idea of not renewing does not sit well with PSG.
Moreover, the report states Mbappe’s mother and representative Fayza Lamari is pushing for her son to join Real Madrid.
The negotiations for Mbappé to move to Madrid, whether this summer or the next, are being handled by the player’s mother. These discussions with PSG over the player’s future are tense.
After Madrid’s previous attempt to land the French superstar last year failed, Perez came out to acknowledge Mbappe’s personal will to join as well as his mother’s desire.
“I think his mother wanted him to come to Real Madrid, because it was his dream as a little boy. I haven’t spoken to her, but they tell us that she is upset. When the circumstances change and a person makes a decision, you have to respect it. He’s 23 and was put under a lot of pressure,” he had said.
But a lot will depend on whether Mbappe is willing to relent on his stance and leave PSG this summer or if he decides to wait until January to sign a pre-contract agreement and arrive at the Bernabeu next year.
Either way, until there is a definitive conclusion from the Mbappe saga, Real Madrid have put their plans for a new forward on hold.
