Renowned Spanish journalist Jorge C Picon has revealed that the club are set to unveil their ultimate offer at the turn of the year, marking the culmination of a prolonged pursuit.
Mbappe, now 24, has ascended to the zenith of world football over the past six years. Bursting onto the scene during the 2016/17 season with AS Monaco, he played a pivotal role in securing the Ligue 1 title for his team. Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) swiftly recognized his potential, securing him on loan in the 2017 summer transfer window before finalizing a permanent deal a year later.
Despite being the linchpin for PSG, Mbappe's future has perennially been shrouded in speculation. The recent limelight has been focused on Real Madrid, with persistent rumours linking the French sensation to the iconic white jersey. This intrigue reached its peak in the last two summer transfer windows.
Mbappe's journey has been marked by steadfast loyalty to PSG, evident even during the tumultuous period when he declared his intention to run down his contract this past summer. Banished briefly from the squad, he swiftly reclaimed his pivotal role, amassing an impressive 17 goals and two assists in just 17 appearances.
Yet, as Mbappe enters the final year of his contract, the football world eagerly awaits his decision. Premier League giants have been lurking in the shadows, but it is Real Madrid that have consistently courted him. Recent reports suggested that the club had abandoned hopes of a Bosman move, having chased the Frenchman in the past three summer windows.
Real Madrid, a club with a storied history, remain cautiously optimistic. Their final offer, poised to be unveiled at the turn of the year, carries the weight of their aspirations to secure Mbappe's services. The catch, however, lies in Mbappe's desire to don the iconic white jersey. The Merengues are not willing to go all out unless the World Cup winner unequivocally expresses his wish to join their ranks.
As Real Madrid unveil their final gamble, the ball is firmly in the court of the 24-year-old prodigy. Will Mbappe choose the allure of the Merengues and embark on a new chapter in his illustrious career? The answer lies in the impending turn of the year, promising a thrilling denouement to this captivating transfer saga.
