He talked about how close he was to joining Los Blancos before choosing not to fulfill his dream.
However, more details about Mbappe’s length of the contract have been revealed.
The young French forward’s contract will run until 2024, but Real Madrid is aware of their target’s strategy.
They will be cautious this time and will be willing to avoid abiding by the Frenchman’s rule.
Real Madrid News: Mbappe’s Contract at PSG
Some doubt Mbappe’s PSG contract. They also believe that transfer rumours will spark again when the summer transfer window will reopen next year.
The situation has changed for the other suitors of Mbappe, as his last-minute change of mind has made other clubs worry. There are not many clubs who are willing to offer a contract worth 150 million euros gross per season.
There is also a huge sum as a signing bonus to be offered to Mbappe and his agent. This might be a strategy of his for the PSG’s Qatari owners who ended up putting as many zeros as possible on the World Cup winner’s contract. Even if the forward becomes a free agent, no club will easily get into this deal.
Ronaldo’s Situation at Madrid
This thing is not exclusive to him, as his idol and Real Madrid legend, Cristiano Ronaldo did the same with the Spanish Giant.
Madrid was reluctant to offer an increased salary to the Portuguese, as he was on the wrong side of his 30s. Ronaldo ended up joining Juventus on a €100 million deal in 2018.
Ronaldo’s door to return to Madrid is closed. Florentino Perez was asked earlier this year about Ronaldo’s return. Perez replied: “Cristiano? Again? At 38?” and walked away laughing.
Madrid was interested in Mbappe for a long time. They tried to sign him in 2017 when he was barely 18 years old, playing for Monaco. But he chose PSG because Madrid was occupied by superstars like Gareth Bale, Karim Benzema, and Cristiano Ronaldo.
He had a very minimum chance to get into the first team. Though those players have left behind a great legacy at Madrid by winning 4 Champions League in a span of 5 years.
Real Madrid News: Mbappe’s Possibility of Madrid Return
Mbappe had everything in his hand to make his dream move possible, but he will always be criticised for choosing money over his dream.
For the next time, Real Madrid will try to avoid bringing in Mbappe. After Mbappe’s snubbing to come to Madrid, Florentino Perez spoke: “This is not the Mbappe I wanted to bring, he is another one, who must have changed his dream. He changes. He is offered other things, he is pressured and he is already another footballer. There is no one at Real Madrid above the club.”
Real Madrid has determined to bring in those players who are willing to play for Madrid. According to Marca, Madrid will not chase either Mbappe or Haaland. Because the club is not willing to sacrifice everything for them.
