Kylian Mbappe once turned down Real Madrid’s offer to extend his contract with PSG, but he’s now wanting to switch to play in Spain. The French star has two transfer demands that “White Vulture” must fulfill in order to sign him.

But recently, the circumstance has undergone a significant alteration. Mbappe highlighted his dissatisfaction at the PSG leadership’s failure to live up to its commitments to him regarding a potential new project. As a result, the 1998 star had a change of heart and began to fantasize about joining Real Madrid after the 2022–23 season.

If Hakimi and Theo Hernandez join Real Madrid this summer, Mbappe wants to get back together with his national team and club teammates.

Sport also revealed that Real Madrid will not necessarily pursue Mbappe this summer, despite the fact that they still desire the 24-year-old star.

Instead of Mbappe, Real Madrid is reportedly interested in Borussia Dortmund’s Jude Bellingham and even Man City’s Erling Haaland, a striker. They will “grab the handle” if this mega-deal is announced in the summer transfer window of 2023, not the striker wearing the number 7 shirt of PSG.
