A quite considerable development in Kylian Mbappe’s transfer saga to Real Madrid was confirmed on Monday night.
Attacking sensation Mbappe, of course, is long overdue to end his spell with Paris Saint-Germain this summer, to join La Liga champions Real in a big-money free agent deal.
Such a move would see the Frenchman join forces with fellow countryman Karim Benzema and Los Blancos winger Vinicius Junior, to potentially form the deadliest front three in world football.
It will therefore undoubtedly come as music to the ears of the Real faithful to learn that, tonight, their team have taken a monumental step towards the signing of Mbappe.
According to a report by The Athletic’s reliable David Ornstein, the 23-year-old has reached agreement on the personal terms of a contract in the Spanish capital.
It is being repeated that, as of now, Mbappe hasn’t signed for Carlo Ancelotti’s Los Blancos, with PSG remaining desperate to strike a last-minute deal for their long-serving attacking star.
Tonight’s developments, however, would certainly seem to indicate that Galactico’s latest signing is getting closer and closer to the Bernabeu.
