In yet another twist to the endless Kylian Mbappe-Real Madrid saga, the French attacker has rejected an offer to join the Spanish club as a free agent next summer, according to a report published on The Times. Mbappe will now explore a move to join the Premier League, per that same report.
The Times’ piece indicates that Real Madrid had pushed Mbappe towards signing a pre-contract agreement earlier this month, with the attacker left unimpressed by the offer. The report would be consistent with what the Spanish media had reported a few days ago, saying that Real Madrid had given Mbappe a deadline to make a final decision this month.
The offer from Real Madrid would’ve made Mbappe the highest-paid player on the team’s roster, according to a report from both The Athletic and The Times. However, the latter indicates that “Mbappe has told friends that Madrid will not decide his future for him.”
If the report is accurate, the Mbappe-Real Madrid saga is definitely over, and this time might be the true and final ending.
