Kylian Mbappe to Real Madrid CF: Why does it make sense? 

While there is no official word over it, reports have said that Kylian Mbappe has informed PSG President Nasser Al-Khelaifi that he will leave the club when his contract expires, which will happen at the end of the season. It would end his seven-year association with the club, and he will become a free agent after that.

Certain aspects may be the reason why he is leaving Parc des Princes. Although the contract was actually for until 2024 with an option for an additional year, PSG paraded him at Parc des Princes when he signed that final agreement, holding up a jersey with the year 2025 printed on it. According to reports, Mbappe was displeased with the incident and felt let down by the team for not signing more elite players despite what they had promised to accomplish when he signed the contract.

Kylian Mbappe, widely known as one of the best players in the world, will be on his way out and could excite the free-agent market. But the club that has the highest chance to entice the player will be Real Madrid. Notably, the La Liga outfit made a $190 million offer for the forward in 2021, but PSG rejected it. The player signed his current deal the following year.
