Kylian Mbappe will not leave PSG to join Real Madrid during the January transfer window. The French International has been on the news for a move to the La Liga giants for the past couple of seasons. Mbappe has already made a name for himself due to his performances for his club and country. He was a very important part of the French team that won the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia.

The 23-year-old is set to become a free agent at the end of this campaign. He has the liberty to sign a pre-contract with Real Madrid if he wants to, during the winter transfer window. The Los Blancos did try to sign Mbappe on the deadline day of the summer transfer window in 2021. Real Madrid made numerous bids of €160 Million, €170 Million, and €200 Million respectively, but they received no response from the PSG hierarchy.

Mbappe has been Real Madrid’s top transfer target for multiple seasons. The club has been carefully managing its spending spree with no transfer fees paid on first-team players since 2019. Meanwhile, the departures of Raphael Varane and Martin Odegaard this summer will help them prepare a bid for Mbappe. With his contract expiring in less than 6 months, the Frenchman can join Real Madrid for free.
