Although Unlikely, It’d Be Awesome
Real Madrid must be living in the dreamland that they’re still one of the dominant clubs…
Dear Paris Saint Germain and Kylian Mbappé, the clock is ticking. Are you in or out?
No f*cking around; Real Madrid is no longer playing games in their pursuit of the French superstar striker. According to a report from the Spanish publication AS, if Mbappé has not decided to join Real Madrid by 15 January, they will shift their focus elsewhere, and the alternative is just as exciting.
🚨 Real Madrid are ready to offer Kylian Mbappé whose PSG contract expires next summer, a deal – but he must make a decision by 15 January.

Tick Tock, Tick Tock
Real Madrid’s caution is understandable. They have already experienced negative consequences during this Mbappe soccer news saga. However, the prominent Spanish club will make another attempt to acquire the superstar from PSG.
Mbappé’s contract at the Parc des Princes is nearing its expiration. While Paris Saint-Germain is eager to avoid losing their most valuable player without compensation, the attacker remains for now.
Real Madrid expressed interest in signing Mbappé previously. Still, when it seemed they had successfully acquired him, the 24-year-old abruptly changed his mind and decided to extend his contract with PSG.
To prevent more humiliation, AS reports that Real Madrid has established a certain timeframe. However, if they cannot entice the PSG superstar to Spain, their other option is Erling Haaland.
🚨 Real Madrid have given Kylian Mbappé an ultimatum: They will send him a contract offer on January 1st and will give him 15 days to respond.
Once this deadline has passed, the Spanish club will prioritise the signing of Erling Haaland.

Excuse Me, What? Haaland to Madrid…
Real Madrid must be living in the dreamland that they’re still one of the dominant clubs in Europe. Sure, the supporters are present, but they aren’t the big draw of old, and acquiring the best player in the world, Haaland, from last season’s treble winners will not be a simple task.
There is a prevailing opinion in Madrid that Haaland would be enthusiastic about relocating and joining up with his former Borussia Dortmund colleague Jude Bellingham.
The Norwegian resides in Spain and makes frequent visits, instilling Real Madrid with assurance that they may entice him to go from the Premier League winners.
Cute, But Nah
All of this is cute and all, but I’m not sure they received the memo that Haaland’s previous release clause from City was removed last year; furthermore, his time spent in Manchester has been incredibly successful.

Of course, money talks, but both Haaland and Mbappé can find the extra pay exactly where they are. It boils down to personal achievements and what they believe is achievable in a Real Madrid jersey.
The Ballon d’Or, perhaps? It’s something that a Messi World Cup win would’ve seen Haaland win under the Man City banner, so I’d expect him to be content.
As for Mbappé, he’s the most likely of the two to join el Real in the La Liga. After all, Ligue 1 isn’t known as the most challenging division. But after f*cking around so much, we can’t even be sure he’d sign on the dotted line.
For Los Blancos fans, we can let them dream. We’ve even witnessed soccer transfer rumors suggest the absurdity of signing both Mbappé and Haaland. Alongside Jude Bellingham, that’s a dangerous f*cking trio, but honestly, it’s not happening unless you’re playing FIFA on the PS5.
