Mbappe turns around and ends up at Real…”Liverpool give up→Real win with Bosman rule”
Kylian Mbappe’s future is still up in the air.
Real Madrid have not given up on Mbappe, and Liverpool, who were in the running to sign him, have recently pulled out.
French outlet RMC Sport reported on Wednesday that “Liverpool have no intention of signing Mbappe in 2024.
“The Reds are not interested at this stage,” said RMC Sport, adding, “They have been linked with a move for Mbappe in recent days, but Liverpool have no intention of signing him.
Florian Plettenberg, a reporter for Sky Sports Germany who is well versed in European soccer news, also said, “Liverpool are not interested in Mbappe.
A move next summer is not on the table at the moment,” he said, adding that “Real Madrid is still a realistic destination, whether next year or the year after.”
Mbappe has been the subject of transfer speculation since last year.
Real, his dream club, had been actively pursuing him, and he even took time off during the season to fly to Madrid for negotiations.
With a verbal agreement reportedly in place, it looked like Mbappe would be wearing a Real jersey, but PSG were able to sign him to a new 2+1 year contract.
After seemingly committing his future to PSG, Mbappe was once again a transfer hot potato last summer.
With one year left on his contract at PSG at the end of the 2022/23 season, Mbappe indicated that he would not trigger the clause that would have allowed him to extend his contract for another year.
He announced that he would be out of contract at the end of the 2023/24 season and leave as a free agent.
PSG, who had envisioned a future with Mbappe, were furious.
PSG president Nasser Al-Khelaifi demanded that Mbappe leave immediately if he wasn’t going to re-sign, and Mbappe responded with a bombshell statement that he wouldn’t be able to win the Ballon d’Or at PSG.
To make matters worse, it was reported that six players, including new arrivals, were uncomfortable with Mbappe.
With the summer transfer window being the last time they could sell for a fee if Mbappe didn’t re-sign, PSG were forced to play the hardball and ordered a demotion to the second team to pressure him.
But when Mbappe refused to budge, PSG left him off the roster for the preseason Asia tour and actually sent him to the stands for the opening game against Lorient, signaling that he would be spending the rest of the season in the second team.
That changed after PSG’s hard-fought draw at Lorient.
Having already lost Neymar to Al-Hilal in Saudi Arabia, leaving a huge hole in their attacking lineup, PSG brought Mbappe back into the first team.
Since then, Mbappe has been an ace, scoring 14 goals in 12 league games and three in five Champions League games, taking his tally to 17 goals in 17 games across all competitions.
However, he has not yet signed a new contract with PSG, which means he will be free to negotiate with other clubs when the winter transfer window opens. 토토사이트
In light of this, reports have recently surfaced that Premier League clubs Arsenal and Liverpool have expressed interest in signing Mbappe.
“Arsenal and Liverpool are weighing up a possible move for Mbappe, according to Football England.
Arsenal are in competition with Liverpool for the player and are looking at the financial possibilities of signing him.”
In the UK, TeamTalk reports that “Liverpool are keen to bring Mbappe to Anfield.
It is noteworthy that Mbappe’s mother supports the Reds and that Mbappe is a fan of Jürgen Klopp.”
Ultimately, according to RMC Sport and Plettenberg, Liverpool have withdrawn from the race for Mbappe.
However, it turns out that Real, who had reportedly given up on Mbappe, are still after him.
Earlier, Real had issued an unusual official statement to refute allegations that they had concluded preliminary talks with Mbappe, calling them “untrue,” but Spain’s Relevo reported that “contrary to recent statements, Real have not abandoned the idea of signing Mbappe.
Real’s statement was a strategic move to avoid being accused of breaking FIFA rules,” explaining that “the plan is to make an offer to Mbappe in the first half of next year and have him join the club as soon as his contract with PSG ends.”
Mbappe is out of contract at PSG next summer, so the Bosman Rule allows him to negotiate and pre-contract with other clubs up to six months before his contract expires.
Much has already been made of whether Mbappe will re-sign with PSG as he did last year, seek a new challenge in the Premier League, or head to Real, the most likely destination.
