Kylian Mbappe Reportedly Agrees Personal Terms With Real Madrid
It wasn’t too long ago that Paris Saint-Germain were reportedly hopeful of extending Mbappe’s stay at the club following talks with his mother. At the time, all signs pointed to the French striker being happy to extend his stay in Ligue 1.
However, as time went on the reports started to swing in the favour of Real Madrid who over time have become increasingly confident in landing the signature of the star striker. With these latest reports it would appear that Kylian Mbappe will be kitted out in the iconic white of Real Madrid next season
Real Madrid are already one of the top teams in Europe and boast some of the best talent in the world. That didn’t stop them from rabidly pursuing the signature of Kylian Mbappe, who had two of the richest clubs in the world battling it out to secure his signing.
Just why did Madrid fight such a battle for his signature? Well, it’s simple, at just 23 years of age he is one of the best strikers on the planet. In Mbappe, Real Madrid could have their cornerstone striker for the next decade to come, if not longer given how well players are treating their bodies nowadays. In addition to his age, Mbappe has proven to be a goalscoring machine.
As of this writing, Kylian Mbappe’s goalscoring record with Paris Saint-Germain is a whopping 168 goals in 216 across all competitions, with 116 of those goals coming in 141 Ligue 1 games. If the French striker can bring that consistency to Real Madrid then there may be no stopping them.
