Kylian Mbappe to Make Waves at Real Madrid Potential Impact on the Squad


Real Madrid are closely monitoring Kylian Mbappe’s situation with PSG and are prepared to make a move should he choose Real Madrid over Paris Saint-Germain, potentially changing the dynamic in the capital city. Should he sign, it could shake things up significantly.

Mbappé’s Current Situation at PSG.

Kylian Mbappe is currently contracted with Paris Saint-Germain until June 30th 2024 but there’s little certainty as to his continued stay beyond this summer. PSG have indicated that if Mbappe doesn’t extend his contract until 2025 they may sell him; to emphasize their point, they excluded him from their summer tour of Asia which further angered Mbappe. Yet Mbappe remains firm in his commitment and intends to honor his contract regardless of PSG’s actions.

Real Madrid Has Expressed Their Interest in Mbappe

Real Madrid has long been considered an attractive destination for Mbappe, though many assumed he might move there by 2024. Now however, many believe a move could happen this summer instead; particularly as they recently parted ways with Karim Benzema. Officially however, Real Madrid president Florentino Perez and coach Carlo Ancelotti have refrained from making any statements on a potential move; though players such as Fede Valverde have expressed their excitement. Real Madrid closely monitor all developments around him closely so we shall see where this situation unfolds next.

Potential Formation Changes at Real Madrid

Real Madrid envisions Mbappe playing as a central striker (ndeg9) alongside Vinicius Jr on the left and Rodrygo on the right, though Ancelotti has recently considered shifting from their traditional 4-3-3 formation into one that prioritizes summer signing Jude Bellingham – this adaptation was evident during an AC Milan friendly match earlier this month.

Mbappe’s Arrival Could Impact Real Madrid Squad
Three players could be affected directly by Mbappe’s signing:

  1. Rodrygo: Rodrygo could become one of the first casualties of Mbappe’s arrival, with his playing time likely decreasing as PSG shows interest in him but neither Rodrygo or PSG have expressed a desire for him to leave.
  2. Joselu: Ancelotti already considers Joselu a back-up player and with Mbappe joining, his playing time could further reduce.
  3. Brahim Diaz could find himself caught in the crossfire should Mbappe join Real Madrid this summer. Ancelotti intended for Diaz to be deployed as an immediate replacement for Marco Asensio who moved on to Paris Saint-Germain; however, his role may change significantly should Real Madrid opt to remain with their 4-4-2 formation.

Kylian Mbappe’s potential arrival at Real Madrid could bring with it dramatic alterations to their team setup and roster composition. While Real’s goal of signing him may be their priority, they must also balance their squad according to tactical adjustments resulting from this high-profile transfer that could alter Madrid’s landscape significantly.
