The Spanish press already welcomes Kylian Mbappé

The Spanish sports dailies report at length on the announcement by Kylian Mbappé to leave Paris-SG at the end of the season. However, they are not being so emphatic, in their eyes, the Frenchman’s arrival at Real Madrid is already understood. The AS newspaper headlines “Adios Paris” and dwells on the financial effort – entirely relative – that “Kyky” will have to make in order not to explode Real’s salary scale. The journalist speaks of overall remuneration falling by 50%.

The 2018 world champion will still be the highest paid member of the Merengue locker room, according to AS which announces that “image rights will constitute the sensitive point of the negotiations since Real does not want to abandon them completely while the clan Mbappé claims them 100%.”

In Marca, the other daily prescriber of Madrid news, Carlos Carpio suggests that the French striker will soon be a Madrid player at “90, 95 or 100%” and announces that the two parties have been negotiating intensively for two weeks. “If Mbappé only wanted to earn as much money as possible, he would never sign for Real” but would stay on the banks of the Seine.

The Madrid club specialist explains that president Florentino Perez personally leads the way financially. At the head of a team which already has young cracks such as Vinicius Jr and Jude Bellingham, he would have “all the peace of mind” to attract Kylian Mbappé without accepting the pharaonic amounts demanded by the advisers of Bondy’s child.

As for El Pais, the main Spanish general daily, it is limited to a headline informing of the player’s decision to leave Paris-SG. On the inside page, it is written that “the news was received with a certain distance and also with a touch of optimism at Real headquarters”. On site, everyone would ask themselves: “Where is he going to go if not to us?” »

On the other side of the Alps, we are on the same wavelength and we do not imagine for a moment seeing the captain of the Blues playing in Serie A. For La Gazzetta dello Sport, “the only possible destination for the Bondy’s crack is Real Madrid”, before listing his track record and specifying “that he is only missing the Champions League. A fundamental step to aim for the Ballon d’Or. A new life awaits him at Ancelotti’s Real Madrid,” concludes the pink daily.

On the other side of the Chanel, if we believe that Real Madrid is in pole position to recruit him, we also imagine “a potential jostling within the European elite” to seduce him. “The door is ajar in the Premier League if a club can meet its significant financial demands,” writes The Guardian. An opinion not shared by the BBC, which believes “that there is no one in the equation other than Real Madrid”. A new Mbappé soap opera has opened regardless.
