The 4 reasons that make Real Madrid hesitate for Kylian Mbappé


By: Manu Tournoux

In just a few hours, Kylian Mbappé will be able to negotiate with Real Madrid, or with any other club interested in his services. PSG will therefore no longer have a say, and the Bondynois will already be able to sign a pre-contract with the team he wants. Of course, in this always very complicated series, we must surely expect surprises and twists. One thing is certain, the Merengues will try their luck. For several days now, the Iberian media have put a piece back into the machine.

So much Marca as A.S. explain that if the Merengues are ready to offer a salary of 26 million euros net annually to the player, with a nice signing bonus of 130 million euros, they have also set an ultimatum. They want a written response by January 15. In the event that Mbappé did not give his agreement during these first two weeks of the year, the Madrid management would close the door.

Weight reasons

In this Sunday’s edition, A.S. explains that there are four reasons why Real Madrid are a little wary and still have some doubts, which will not, however, prevent them from giving it a try. First, the player’s complicated history with the Merengues, and this famous summer of 2021 during which everyone thought he was going to join the Bernabéu. Before throwing an unexpected wind at Florentino Pérez, who is ready to turn the page, but has not forgotten this episode. This is also the case for the supporters.

There is also the explosion of Vinicius Junior, who is Real Madrid’s reference in the offensive sector. Another important reason, similar to the importance taken by the Brazilian in the team: the crazy and unexpected level displayed by Jude Bellingham, who established himself as the leader of the team. With these two players in the team, the arrival of Mbappé is considered less essential than not so long ago. Finally, fourth and final reason: the existence of a certain Erling Haaland, always in the club’s sights. For some, whether within the club or among journalists, Real Madrid needs a player like the Norwegian more than Kylian Mbappé. You will have understood, the Madrilenians will try their luck, but yet another failure in the Mbappé file would no longer necessarily be seen as a disaster or a bitter failure.
