It seems like Real Madrid’s hierarchy and the club’s President Florentino Perez has made up their mind regarding the player. This might prove to be the last opportunity for the PSG’s number seven to fulfill his dream of playing for the Los Blancos.
However, PSG and Manchester City would both be hesitant to lose their star players to Real Madrid. While Mbappe forms a critical part of Les Parisiens’ attacking threat, City seems to be a different team without the services of their striker Erling Haaland.
