Real Madrid closer than ever to signing Mbappe

Paris Saint-Germain forward Kylian Mbappe has been linked with a move to Real Madrid for some years now, but at last it seems that he is now closer to joining Los Blancos than he has ever been in the past.

Mbappe has refused to sign a new contract at PSG, with his current deal set to expire next summer, and now the Emir of Qatar has got involved in proceedings.

As RMC Sport reported on Monday evening, PSG are now considering the possibility of selling Mbappe before the close of the transfer window.

Curiously, if Mbappe was to make the move to Real Madrid, it could have an impact on the future of the Frenchman's idol, Juventus forward Cristiano Ronaldo, who would suddenly become an option for PSG as they look to replace their young star.

Real Madrid have remained adamant that they are only thinking about signing Mbappe, despite having the option to go down the route of discussing a deal with Borussia Dortmund striker Erling Haaland or even a move that would see Cristiano return to the Estadio Santiago Bernabeu.

Mbappe may be into the last 12 months of his contract, but Real Madrid understand that prying him away from PSG will lead to the 22-year-old being the club's record signing, while he would also become the club's highest-earning player.

Back in May, Real Madrid began to draw up their plans about what they want the new side to look like, with there being an understanding that after bringing in a new head coach and finding a replacement for the captain, Sergio Ramos, the only other name that would be considered is that of Mbappe.

There was a lot of talk about Real Madrid needing a huge overhaul of the squad, but that will come ahead of the 2022/23 season as many of the players' contracts are still in place.
