Manchester City might look to steal a march on Real Madrid in the summer transfer window. The French forward will likely leave Paris Saint-Germain as a free agent. Mbappé is on the path to establishing himself as one of the world’s best players.
Madrid attempted to sign Mbappé for a nine-figure sum last summer, but PSG firmly held on to the Frenchman in the hopes of tying him down to a bumper new contract. However, with Les Parisiens’ attempts proving futile, the interest from Real Madrid has grown stronger, with Los Blancos ready to offer him a €50 million-a-year contract.
Mbappé could be the long-sought Cristiano Ronaldo successor at Real Madrid, with the youngster giving the Merengues the best years of his career, much like the Portuguese forward before him. But Real Madrid will have to be wary of the threat posed by Manchester City in the race to sign Mbappé.
Real Madrid might be on the verge of losing one priority target in Erling Haaland to Manchester City. And the Premier League champions could steal a march on the Spanish giants in the race to sign Mbappé, which could be a surprising move from the Citizens unless Raheem Sterling calls it quits at the Etihad.
