Kylian Mbappe: France forward signs Real Madrid contract to join on free transfer


Kylian Mbappe has agreed to join Real Madrid without having to pay any transfer fee. His current deal with Paris St-Germain will come to an end on 30th June.

The forward from France gave his verbal confirmation to transfer to Bernabeu in February and later, in May, made it public that he would depart from PSG once the season was over.

Mbappe, who is currently 25 years old, recently finalized his deal with Real Madrid and is expected to make his move to Spain once the transfer window for La Liga opens on July 1st.

It is anticipated that Madrid will publicize the agreement in the following week and may formally introduce the striker at the Bernabeu before Euro 2024.

Mbappe, who won the World Cup in 2018, has scored 256 goals for PSG since he first started playing for them on loan from Monaco in 2017. This means he holds the record for the most number of goals ever scored by a PSG player.

He has reached an agreement with Real that will last until 2029. He will be making 15 million euros ($16.9 million) per season. In addition to this, he will receive a 150 million euro ($169.5 million) signing bonus that will be paid over five years. Also, he will keep a part of his image rights.

The opportunity for the French player to share the pitch with Luka Modric has arrived, as it's expected that the Croatian midfielder will renew his contract with the team for an additional year.

On Saturday, Madrid achieved their 15th European Cup victory with a 2-0 win over Borussia Dortmund at Wembley. Modric, who is 38 years old, entered the game as a substitute.

The ex-Spurs player's ongoing contract expires towards the end of this month, although it is anticipated that he will remain with the club for an additional year.

Toni Kroos, a German player who is 34 years old, was substituted by Modric during the last four minutes of his final performance for the club, which he has been a part of for 10 years.

Real Madrid will host a celebratory procession throughout the streets of Madrid on Sunday evening to mark their triumphant victory and secure their place in soccer history.
