Kylian Mbappe Confirms Real Madrid Move After PSG Departure

France striker Kylian Mbappe has finalized his move to Real Madrid on a free transfer from Paris St-Germain. The 25-year-old, who verbally agreed to the deal in February, officially signed the contract, with the transfer set to take effect when the La Liga transfer window opens on July 1st.

Mbappe’s departure from PSG was announced in May, marking the end of his tenure with the club since 2017, during which he became their all-time leading goal scorer.

The agreement with Real Madrid includes a contract until 2029, with Mbappe earning €15 million per season and a signing-on bonus of €150 million paid over five years. Additionally, he will retain a portion of his image rights.

This move also presents Mbappe with the opportunity to play alongside seasoned midfielder Luka Modric, who is expected to extend his stay at Real Madrid for another year. Modric played a crucial role in Real Madrid’s recent Champions League triumph, securing their 15th European Cup title.

As Mbappe embarks on this new chapter of his career, his arrival at Real Madrid is anticipated to be formally announced next week, possibly followed by a presentation at the Bernabeu ahead of Euro 2024.
