Kylian Mbappe could join Real Madrid this summer

Various sources have linked Kylian Mbappe with a summer transfer move to Real Madrid. Mbappe is reportedly weighing his options and could make his dream transfer to the Santiago Bernabeu this window. Last summer, an imminent move to join Los Blancos stalled after Mbappe was offered an irresistible deal by his club Paris Saint Germain. This mega deal made him change his mind and commit to staying in the French capital as they aimed for Champions League success. However, after falling short of their primary objective last season, the World Cup winner is said to be open to a transfer to Spain.

Why Mbappe could favor the move

The Frenchman could favor the move as he targets a Champions League medal that could prove crucial in his quest for a Ballon d’Or. This elusive trophy has reduced his chances of winning the coveted individual award by a big percentage. He has been shortlisted multiple times but has yet to taste it. The likes of Erling Haaland now stand a higher chance of winning the Ballon d’Or after winning the European club’s elite competition. Mbappe would like to move to a club with a higher chance of winning the trophy than stay in Paris.

The PSG president’s reaction could push Mbappe away.

PSG President Nassr Al Khelaifi recently went on a rant about the forward. He stated that Mbappe seemed undecided about his future and had to decide his future. He gave the player an ultimatum of two weeks to decide whether he was moving elsewhere or staying at a club. Al Khelaifi further reiterated that no player was bigger than the club, not even he, the president. This rant is connotative of a worrying relationship between the player and the club. The outburst could also play a role in pushing Mbappe away to Real Madrid, his dream club.
