Mbappe’s contract with PSG officially expires on July 1, at which point he will officially join the reigning Champions League winners.

The France international is playing his farewell match in Paris Saint-Germain’s seven-year relationship as they defeat Lyon in the French Cup final.

Following a great deal of conjecture, Mbappe made his exit known prior to his final game at the Parc des Princes in May.

The 25-year-old played out his contract in the French city, much to PSG’s annoyance.

However, it was the worst-kept secret in football, with reports claiming that Mbappe made his decision to join with Real Madrid back in February.

And following their triumph over Borussia Dortmund at Wembley to win the European Cup for a record 15 times, Los Blancos have strengthened their team with what may be the greatest free transfer in history.

Prior to France’s participation in the Euro 2024 competition, Mbappe signed a five-year contract at Santiago Bernabeu.

In addition to earning an enormous £86 million signing-on bonus that will be paid in stages, he is expected to be their highest-paid individual at £12.8 million annually.

Now, following two failed attempts, Mbappe’s PSG contract is set to expire on July 1st, making him a Real player.

A statement on Real’s official website reads: “Real Madrid CF and Kylian Mbappe have reached an agreement whereby he will be a Real Madrid player for the next five seasons.”

In due course, more information about Mbappe’s contract, including his new shirt number, will be revealed.

He’ll be a valuable addition to Jude Bellingham, Vinicius Jr., and Rodrygo Goes, a dangerous front trio already.

After spending £166 million to move from Monaco to PSG in 2017, Mbappe set a record by scoring 256 goals in 308 games.
