The soap opera between PSG, Kylian Mbappé, and Real Madrid seems to be coming to an end imminently.
After years of rumors in which it seemed that the French footballer aimed at Real Madrid but not to sign for the white team, everything will come to an end soon.
Will he renew for PSG or finally land in the capital of Spain? We will know very soon.
An Imminent Decision
Just a few days ago, Kylian Mbappé claimed that the decision on his future was practically made. At the insistence of journalists’ questions, the French footballer postponed his decision until before May 28, when he will meet with the France senior team.
His team, PSG, will play its last Ligue 1 match this Saturday, May 22, against Metz at 21:00. There has been much speculation as to whether his decision would be made public at the end of this match, but the latest information seems to point to Sunday 23 May as the day on which it will be confirmed.
After what happened during the summer of last year, when the player’s future seemed firm towards Real Madrid, his club, PSG, came to reject a dizzying offer of up to 200 million euros. The player later admitted that he wanted to leave France for Madrid, but now, it seems that doubts have arisen again about his movements.
In any case, there are only a few days left for the future of one of the most decisive players in the world to be defined. Paris or Madrid are the only two options for the player, who already rejected Los Blancos 5 years ago. Will we see Kylian Mbappé in white next season in La Liga?
There is no lack of desire on the part of both the club and the fans. Nevertheless, this is the second time Real Madrid has had the opportunity to take the French star, and it looks like it will be the last. If Mbappé decides to extend his contract with the French, the doors of the team chaired by Florentino Perez could close, never to open again.
Real Madrid, focused on the Champions League Final in Paris
Meanwhile, Real Madrid is keeping quiet about the country’s future. And it is not for less, since the club will dispute next May 28 the Champions League final precisely in Paris. It seems that the team is focused on this match and does not want any external distractions under any circumstances.
Their opponent will be Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool, who are in the middle of the Premier League, with just one game to go.
In addition, it comes after winning the FA Cup against Chelsea, whom they defeated in the final after a penalty shootout that ended 5-6 in favor of the ‘Reds’.
It should be noted that Real Madrid and Liverpool already faced each other in the Champions League final of the 2017/2018 season. Back then, Cristiano Ronaldo-led Real Madrid took their 13th Champions League with goals from Karim Benzema and Gareth Bale (2).
Although Liverpool still has the same coach on the bench, Los Blancos will this time be under Carlo Ancelotti.
For the English, should they win on Saturday, this would be their 7th Champions League.
The last time they managed to lift the ‘Orejona’ was in the 2018/2019 season, with a 2-0 result against Tottenham. Goals from Mo’ Salah (1′) and Origi (86′) were enough to make champions of a team that has marked a cycle and is still on the cusp.
