Mbappe Signs Real Madrid Deal

Published

Kylian Mbappe, the French striker, has officially signed a contract with Real Madrid, solidifying his move to the Spanish club on a free transfer when his Paris St-Germain deal expires on June 30.

The 25-year-old verbally agreed to join Real Madrid in February and confirmed his departure from PSG in May.

Mbappe, a World Cup winner in 2018, has signed a deal with Real Madrid until 2029, earning a lucrative €15 million per season, plus a €150 million signing-on bonus to be paid over five years. He will also retain a percentage of his image rights.

The Frenchman will join a star-studded squad, including Luka Modric, who is set to sign a new one-year extension with the club. Modric, 38, came on as a substitute in Real Madrid’s 2-0 win against Borussia Dortmund in the Champions League final on Saturday.

Mbappe’s move to Real Madrid marks the end of his successful tenure at PSG, where he became the club’s record goalscorer with 256 goals since joining from Monaco on an initial loan in 2017.

The signing is a significant coup for Real Madrid, who will formally present Mbappe at the Bernabeu before Euro 2024.

The club is expected to announce the deal next week, with a trophy parade through the Spanish capital on Sunday night following their record-extending success in the Champions League.

This development is a significant milestone in the career of one of the world’s most talented footballers, and fans are eagerly anticipating his debut in the famous white shirt of Real Madrid.
