The worst kept secret in football is finally out in the open, with Real Madrid confirming that Mbappe has now signed for the club. Mbappe announced his departure from PSG at the start of May and now joins Madrid after a season where Carlo Ancelotti’s side finished top of La Liga and won the Champions League for a record 15th time.

The club announced the news with a very brief statement: “Real Madrid C.F. and Kylian Mbappé have reached an agreement whereby he will be a Real Madrid player for the next five seasons.”


The move has been long in the making with the French superstar having been linked with Los Blancos almost every single year, if not every single transfer window since U-turning on a move in 2022. The 25-year-old will now finally make the move as a free agent but has reportedly taken a pay-cut to join Ancelotti’s men. However, he is still expected to be the club’s highest-paid player, with estimated earnings of €15m (£13m/$16m) to €20m (£17m/$22m) per year.

The 25-year-old has already joined the French national team camp ahead of their European Championship campaign and will be hoping for more glory before linking up with his new team-mates at the Santiago Bernabeu.
