Real Madrid’s lineup with Kylian Mbappe (25-Paris Saint-Germain) has been revealed.

Mbappe is set to join Real after all. “Mbappe has agreed a transfer with Real,” France’s Foot Mercato reported on Aug. 8 (KST).

The tug-of-war between Real and Mbappe began in the 2020-21 season, when Mbappe’s contract with Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) expired and he negotiated a transfer to Real. Most expected a move to Real.

However, Mbappe suddenly signed a new contract with PSG. Even French President Emmanuel Macron intervened to convince Mbappe to stay, and PSG signed him to a new contract with a huge salary guarantee.

Real were furious at what they saw as Mbappe’s “betrayal. Real even issued an official statement saying that they would not attempt to sign Mbappe.

The relationship between Real and Mbappe seemed to have grown apart, but before the season started, things changed again. It was revealed that Mbappe’s contract was for two years instead of three, and that he would not be renewed beyond this season.

PSG demanded that Mbappe sign a new contract and excluded him from preseason. Mbappe has since rejoined the team, but there has been no news of a new deal.

Reports are now suggesting that Mbappe will eventually join Real as a free agent. “Real’s attempts to sign Mbappe, which began in 2019, are finally coming to an end,” according to Foot Mercato.

If Real are successful in signing Mbappe, they will form a combination with Jude Bellingham. Real signed Bellingham, one of the world’s best midfielders, for €130 million last summer.

Bellingham immediately became a centerpiece for Real. Not only does he control the game from the center of the park, but his goalscoring prowess has helped Real lead La Liga this season. With 13 goals in 17 league games, he is the top scorer in La Liga. The addition of Mbappe to Bellingham would give Real one of the most potent attacking lines in the game.

The Sun revealed Real’s projected squad after the signing of Mbappe. Vinicius Junior, Mbappe, and Hodriguez form the front line, with Toni Kroos, Bellingham, and Luka Modric below them. David Alaba, Antonio Rudiger, Aurélien Chouaményi and Dani Carvajal complete the back four, with Thibaut Courtois in goal. This is the third Galactico.
