Betting suspended on Kylian Mbappe next club with French superstar Real Madrid bound

Betting has been suspended on Kylian Mbappe's next club with the French striker having reportedly agreed a deal to join Real Madrid in the summer.

It's been one of football's longest-running transfer sagas but it may finally be reaching an end with Mbappe informing PSG of his desire to leave in the summer when his contract runs out and reports suggesting an agreement has been reached for the Frenchman to join Real Madrid.

In August 2017, following transfer speculation that linked the then-18-year-old with the likes of Manchester United, Liverpool, Arsenal and Real Madrid, it was PSG who came out on top, securing the teenager on an initial loan with a £165m fee to be paid the following year.

His first season would see him win a second straight Ligue 1 title and a second straight Ligue 1 Young Player of the Year.

The following year, fresh off the back of a World Cup win with France, he scored 33 goals in 29 games, winning Ligue 1 once more and being elevated to Ligue 1 Player of the Year.

Being knocked back in 2017 didn’t dissuade Real Madrid from maintaining Mbappe as their number one target, and his growing abilities saw them redouble their efforts to sign the World Cup winner in 2021 with a year to run on his contract. 

They would come knocking again a year later as Mbappe’s contract was about to expire, meaning they could sign the forward for free in a matter of months, before Mbappe shocked everyone by re-signing with the French giants for three more years.

But the clock is close to running down again and it now seems a long-mooted move to Los Blancos is finally on the cards.
