The unbeatable even more unbeatable? Mbappé goes to Real Madrid

The unbeatable even more unbeatable? Mbappé goes to Real Madrid

The “unbeatable” get the “unstoppable”. France’s superstar Kylian Mappé will play for Real Madrid in the future. He is following in famous footsteps and is likely to give Hansi Flick something to think about.

Kylian Mbappé is now a royal. The 25-year-old 2018 football world champion and 2022 runner-up is moving to Real Madrid, who have won the Champions League again, thus fulfilling a dream of his heart. He signed a contract that is valid until June 30, 2029. Real announced this around 44 hours after their 15th triumph in the Champions League. “You can’t hit the table harder with your fist,” wrote the Spanish sports newspaper “Marca” immediately.

Reports: Signing bonus in the three-digit million range

The lightning-fast captain of the French national team had already confirmed his departure from Paris Saint-Germain after seven years weeks ago. He had wanted to move to Real two years ago, but instead he extended his contract with PSG again – until the end of June 2024. The fact that he would now go to Real was only an open secret, the only question was the timing of the announcement.

However, he had told French President Emmanuel Macron during his visit to the national team’s headquarters in Clairefontaine: “This evening.” And so it happened. This time Mbappé took the opportunity to make the long-awaited transfer perfect. There was no transfer fee, but in such cases players and agents are usually happy to receive a generous signing-on fee. According to reports, in this case it is said to be 150 million euros.

Mbappé quarrels with PSG

PSG President Nasser al-Khelaifi recently even demanded of Mbappé: “You cannot leave for free and strengthen our biggest rival.” According to a report in the French sports newspaper “L’Équipe”, Mbappé even waited for payments of his April salary and his February bonuses in the dispute with the club boss. It can only be said to be a warm farewell for the most successful goalscorer in the club’s history to a very limited extent.

Mbappé also explained in the CNN report that he had not yet moved to his dream club in 2022. “It was about more than staying at PSG. It was about the World Cup in Qatar.” This took place at the end of 2022, and Mbappé and France had only failed in their attempt to defend their title in the final, losing on penalties to Argentina, including his former PSG teammate Lionel Messi.

Hansi Flick will also have to think

How this team can now be stopped, reinforced by one of the best players in the world, will be a challenge for the coaches of Europe’s top clubs and also Madrid’s arch-rivals FC Barcelona with the German coach Hansi Flick.

Mbappé will also follow in famous French footsteps in Madrid. Zinédine Zidane once played for the Royals, and fellow countryman Karim Benzema became one of the most successful goalscorers. “There is still a lot I can give to football,” said the attacker, who was born in a Paris suburb. “I want to immortalize my name in the history of football.”
