“Mbappe is going to Real Madrid this summer.” Lee Kang-in is rumored to be moving again

January 8, 2024 | by

Kylian Mbappe has once again been linked with Real Madrid.

“Mbappe is joining Real Madrid,” claimed Santi Auna of France’s “Foot Mercato” on Sunday (Korea time). Mbappe’s trip to Real Madrid has been mentioned in every transfer window. “The long drama seems to end. Real kept sending offers to recruit Mbappe. Mbappe wants control of the situation. Negotiations have progressed and an agreement has been reached with Real.”

“After hours of discussion, Mbappe agreed to join Real. Real wants to open a new era and intends to recruit Mbappe this summer. Mbappe also wants to go to Real,” he added.

Mbappe is currently an icon of global soccer. With the era of Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo over, Mbappe is a striker who is selected as the No. 1 in the next Ballon d’Or. He showed off his talent when he was playing for AS Monaco and led the team’s attack in the 2016-17 season. He scored 15 goals and 11 assists in the French Ligue 1 alone, and scored six goals in nine matches in the UEFA Champions League.

He was transferred to Paris Saint-Germain (PSG). After the transfer to PSG, Mbappe displayed remarkable scoring ability. Neymar and Lionel Messi joined the team one after another, and Mbappe was at the center of the team. He set records that are hard to list all of them. He was named the Ligue 1 player of the year five times, won the Young Player of the Year award three times, the Ligue 1 top scorer five times, and the assist king one time. He was named the “Team of the Year” six times. After occupying the “Golden Boy” and “Trope de Copa,” he was named the third “Ballon d’Or” in 2023.

He also won the title at the FIFA World Cup. He led the team to win the title at the 2018 World Cup in Russia, and was named the “Dream Team” and “Young Player.” He was disappointed to win the 2022 Qatar World Cup, as he only became the runner-up. Mbappe, who is currently the best player in the world beyond the PSG and French national teams, has been linked to Real every time. Real wanted Mbappe as its new icon.

PSG strongly protested the news of the free transfer. Mbappe renewed his contract with PSG, which was a two-plus-year contract, until June 2024, and an extension had to be agreed upon. When Mbappe was told that he agreed to transfer with Real after the end of his contract, Chairman Nasser Al-Khelaifi said at a press conference after Luis Enrique’s appointment, “My position is clear. I don’t want to repeat the same thing. If Mbappe wants to stay, he needs to sign a renewal of his contract. We hope he will stay, too. I don’t want to send the world’s best player for free. I will never let him go for free. It is a very clear situation.”

Attention was drawn to Mbappe’s reaction, which was largely unanswered. Judging by his refusal to renew his contract, PSG removed Mbappe from its roster for the Asian tour. In some cases, he leaves the roster for a preseason friendly match, and Mbappe even scored a goal. Since then, he has been excluded from the roster for the Asian tour. Eventually, the two players seemed to be completely wrong. Exclusion of PSG’s preseason tour roster showed signs of difference. As the team was demoted to the second tier, the team went to extremes.

Ben Jacobs, a reporter for CBS Sports in the U.S., said, “If Mbappe wants to stay at PSG without renewing his contract, he will be taken out of the UCL squad for the 2023-24 season. If he wants to move to Realde for free next summer, Mbappe will have a very hard time for a season. He may also have difficulty participating in UEFA Euro 2024 next summer.”

It will be difficult to transfer to Real Madrid right away. There is a big price gap between PSG and Real. Spain’s Marca said on July 28, “The rumor that Mbappe will move to Real, which started when AS Monaco, is in its final stages. Real wants to recruit Mbappe. PSG wants 250 million euros. Mbappe’s mother has conveyed her intention to transfer to the Real leadership. Real wants to lower the PSG demand because it is too high.” 헤라카지노도메인

“PSG Chairman R-Khelaifi wants to surpass the 222 million euros (about W312.5 billion), the most expensive transfer fee recorded by Neymar in football history. That’s why he is looking to make a huge profit this summer. It is something to be proud of if he sells a player with one year left on his contract to become the No. 1 player in all-time transfer fees. Between 225 million euros and 230 million euros (about W316.7 billion and W323.8 billion) is also a story,” he said.

Spain’s Marca also said, “Real has never met with PSG in person, and everything is still on hold. If the price doesn’t match, Mbappe will spend a year at PSG. Although coexistence is not easy, Mbappe wants to go to Real in a year. He has no intention of negotiating directly with Al-Khelaifi. PSG can part ways with Mbappe without paying a penny for his transfer fee.”

In addition to Real, there was news that Liverpool and Al Hilal were aiming to recruit Mbappe. With the dramatic agreement, Mbappe ended up playing for PSG. Mbappe showed an overwhelming presence by showing crazy scoring ability as the main striker of Enrique. He showed good teamwork with Lee Kang-in, drawing attention from Korean fans as well. Several players were at the center of this summer’s event, Mbappe. It was hard to imagine PSG without Mbappe. PSG wanted to accompany Mbappe, but it still seems closer to Real.
