Kylian Mbappe Transfer Saga Not Over: Surprise Development With Real Madrid Move Back on the Cards

Kylian Mbappe transfer saga

As reported by Fabrizio Romano, Real Madrid chief Florentino Perez has revived the Kylian Mbappe transfer saga: “Real Madrid will be always open to buy players who understand that no one is bigger than the club”. It’s clear that despite Perez being disappointed regarding the 11th-hour collapse of the Mbappe deal this summer – they remain interested in any possibility of signing the French superstar in the future.

Kylian Mbappe Transfer Saga Not Over

Real Madrid Prepared to Play the Waiting Game for Mbappe

Real Madrid have been chasing the Paris Saint-Germain star since last August. When asked about the collapse of the deal, Florentino Pérez: “It was not easy for Mbappé to receive calls from the president of France”. He continued: “This is why Kylian has changed”. 

Real Madrid seemed convinced they had won the race for the 23-year-old. He had been widely tipped to sign for Los Blancos but performed an unexpected u-turn to sign a new contract at the Parc des Princes until 2025.

Perez had previously claimed the club had “already forgotten” about the collapse of the Mbappe deal. It now seems like time is a healer, and Perez is now refusing to close the door on the 23-year-old superstar.

The future of Kylian Mbappe

Mbappe moving to the Bernabeu seemed a certainty. According to Perez, outside pressures forced him to stay in Paris. 

The French international is coming off another incredible season where he surpassed 30 goals for the fourth consecutive season and chipped in with an impressive 14 assists.

Paris Saint-Germain remain hungry for that maiden Champions League trophy, and keeping one of their star players is pivotal to any hopes of fulfilling that ambition. 

The 2022/23 season is arguably the most important of Mbappe’s career, with the World Cup in Qatar giving him the chance to show unequivocally he’s the best player on the planet. Back in Paris, they will surely need to win the Champions League in order to keep Donatello away from the Spanish giants.
