The Transfer Saga Continues 🥱
Either Real surrenders to his demands or the man himself needs to lower his expectations…
I don’t often resort to quoting the masterfully written work of William Shakespeare when discussing soccer transfer rumors. Still, given the fact that the Kylian Mbappe-Real Madrid saga feels like a long-winded story, I thought it was fitting.

If you thought sitting through the Titanic was bad, God bless you if you’re a Mbappe fan. I suppose Paris Saint-Germain is a ship that refuses to sink, and after years of hearing the same old: “Real Madrid wants Mbappe, but…”, we want Rose, aka Nasser Al-Khelaifi, to let that mother f*cker Jack, aka Mbappe, drown, not in the Atlantic Ocean, but the Spanish La Liga.
🚨 Real Madrid keep advancing on Kylian Mbappé deal with confidence — but nothing has been signed yet.
Formal decision on player side expected soon.
↪️ Nasser Al Khelaifi & PSG have not received any formal communication yet.
It’s a crucial step, part of the pact with Kylian. pic.twitter.com/lzts0ta5wZ

The Titanic and Shakespeare references may be too much to kickstart this piece, but honestly, the dramatics are tiring, and should I report one piece of information, we’ll receive a contradictory soccer news statement regarding Mbappe’s future an hour later.
To be brutally honest, no matter what Fabrizio Romano tells us, we have no idea what Mbappe’s next move will be. They’re going to make an eight-episode docu-series on this nonsense in the future, and if the French superstar doesn’t bag himself a record-breaking career similar to Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo, the PSG-Los Blancos transfer soap opera will be the most memorable time of his career…for all the bad reasons.

So, what’s new, you ask? Well, nothing really, the same old, same old.
PSG continues to present Mbappe with a new contract; he isn’t interested, Real Madrid want dibs, but the Paris hierarchy refuses to be “held to ransom” by his star power.
Los Blancos remain in the negotiating stage with the Frenchman, but allegedly, his expectations are far beyond the offer on the table.
Will Mbappe Finally Move to Real Madrid in 2024?
Your guess is as good as ours. If we allow the Mbappe contract negotiations over the past three years to rule our judgment, then yes, the plethora of headlines involving Real Madrid and Mbappe steer us directly down the path of him eventually moving to the Spanish giants.
Although, something has to give for the above to come to fruition. Either Real surrenders to his demands, however large his demands might be, or the man himself needs to lower his expectations.
Two of the Premier League big-six, Arsenal and Liverpool, have shown interest, but neither is willing to rearrange their pay structure to make way for Mbappe, and rightfully so. We witnessed a similar scenario during Messi’s desired exit from Barcelona, and like Mbappe, options are very limited.
The next few weeks will be telling as the chess pieces begin to fall, and it’ll be Mbappe’s move to make. Please don’t get excited, though; there will likely be some more unnecessary drama along the way, and at least he’s keeping Spanish soccer journalists in a job… checkmate!
