Mbappe has stopped negotiations with PSG to extend his contract

Real Madrid Clear Favorites in Superstar Sweepstakes

Paris Saint-Germain’s Kylian Mbappe is the soccer player with the largest market share in the world at present ($160m), and will be able to negotiate with any team after January 1st, 2022. This after entering the last six months of his contract with the French giants.

‘Winter cleaning’ for Paris Saint-Germain

The Ligue 1 leaders have other important issues besides those created by the departure of Kylian Mbappe from the club. They must reduce their squad, selling some players to create a bigger budget. Currently, over 30 players are under contract with PSG, and they must get more than $115m from the next two transfer periods to reduce the budget deficit. Not just that as they might also look for a new manager. With so many stars at his disposal, Mauricio Pochettino is under huge pressure since the team is not playing as they should. These inconsistencies and struggles are telling us not to back PSG on our soccer picks and parlays

Mbappe has no intention of renewing his PSG contract and might leave for free in the summer. With less than one week to go until he enters the final six month of his current deal, Real Madrid are certain that they will sign the French star. Mbappé wants to lead the new Madrid project at the club’s revamped stadium, set to be completed in 2022.

The transfer window opens New Year’s Day in the Premier League, Bundesliga and Ligue 1 with the clubs already planning their next steps amid the ongoing financial crisis and covid-19 outbreak.

Change of plans for Real Madrid

Real Madrid has decided to change the plan for Mbappe transfer with the Champions League double leg that will be played in the company of the Parisians. Out of respect for PSG, Los Blancos do not want Mbappe to sign the pre-contract that will send him to the Santiago Bernabeu next year until after the return match, scheduled for March 9th. The Spanish giants do not want him to play against his future team as this would attract unbearable pressure and hate from the French fans.

Real Madrid want Mbappe’s departure to take place on friendly terms. Thus, if they reach an agreement, he will not put his signature on the contract until the end of the Champions League second leg between the two clubs. PSG are huge favorites to win the first leg being priced at -105 on the three-way moneyline according to the latest soccer odds.

Real Madrid wants to hit not one but two shots in the next transfer window. In the context in which Mbappe would arrive for free at the Santiago Bernabeu, Los Blancos would have any transfer money to sign the Norwegian rising star Erling Haaland. They were willing to shell out approximately $230m on Mbappe last summer-despite his expiring contract-so there’s plenty of money to spend, if required.

They could become the strongest attacking team in the world as the two superstars would join Vinicius Jr., who exploded this season for the Whites. Even without Haaland, a forward line of Mbappé, Karim Benzema and Vinícius Jr. is sure to grab many headlines. Carlos Ancelotti, Real Madrid’s manager, is obviously excited by this prospect. Now, the exchange of generations has taken place to a large extent, with very few players still at Real Madrid since they won four Champions League trophies in five years from 2014-2018.

If you’re betting online, you should always stay informed and follow the most important news regarding the transfers. Liverpool have also held a long-standing interest in Mbappe,, though it’s nearly certain he will move to Real Madrid.
