Real Madrid is expected to choose between Kylian Mbappe and Erling Haaland for a mega-transfer in 2024.
• Real Madrid is looking for a new superstar in 2024 and could sign Haaland or Mbappe.
• Mbappe will be available for free next summer.
WHAT OCCURED? According to L’Equipe, Mbappe’s contract with Paris Saint-Germain will expire in the summer of 2024, as the French international is unlikely to exercise his option to extend his contract by another year, which he must do by the end of July. This means the forward will be available for free next summer, which may tempt Real Madrid.
THE OVERALL IMAGE: However, according to the French site, Los Blancos are also keeping an eye on Manchester City forward Erling Haaland and may make a move for him as well. Karim Benzema is anticipated to sign a one-year agreement with the club and leave at the end of the 2023-24 season to make way for a new superstar signing.
AND THEN THERE’S THIS: However, if Mbappe chooses to play for Real Madrid, he will have to accept a big pay cut. Furthermore, because Vinicius Jr. is currently the number one pick on the left flank, he may be asked to play more centrally.
Mbappe will add another Ligue 1 trophy to his collection on Saturday, with PSG sure to retain their title if they defeat Strasbourg. Meanwhile, Manchester City and Real Madrid will face Brighton and Rayo Vallecano in domestic play on Wednesday.
