Real Madrid’s Dani Carvajal has simply added to the furore around one of the most talked-about transfer rumours of recent years. The full-back added fuel to the talks of Kylian Mbappe making the move to Madrid this summer after his contract comes to an end at Paris Saint Germain.
Real Madrid are long time suitors for the french striker and had two late bids rejected in the summer transfer window this year. Reports broke out recently that Madrid have all but sealed the signing of Mbappe and have agreed to a bumper contract of £41.5 million per year for the teenage sensation.

However, nothing has been finalised yet with Mbappe not ready to let his decision known until this month’s UEFA Champions League Round of 16 encounter between Real Madrid and Paris Saint Germain. PSG have tried almost everything to make him sign a new contract, but so far Mbappe has refused all of them to possibly make a move to the club of his dreams- Real Madrid.
Now, Dani Carvajal shared his thoughts on the impending transfer of Kylian Mbappe. The 30-year old Spaniard who is a key cog in the Madrid wheel, said, “Mbappe is a great player. It seems his contract runs out now and well… It could happen he wears our shirt in the future.”
The forward moved to PSG initially on loan from Monaco in 2017, where he has gone on to elevate his game to even greater heights. Mbappe has been a Madrid fan ever since his childhood and even idolised the likes of Cristiano Ronaldo and Zidane, two of Los Blancos’ greatest players.
Kylian Mbappe is a proven goal scorer and will greatly benefit Real Madrid if he eventually makes the move to the Spanish capital this summer. So far, he has scored 151 goals in 199 games. He has 77 assists to his name, too.
