In a significant development for football fans worldwide, La Liga president Javier Tebas has made a bold proclamation regarding Paris Saint-Germain’s star striker Kylian Mbappe. According to Tebas, the 25-year-old French captain is destined to join Real Madrid next season, marking a major shift in the football landscape.

Mbappe’s impending departure from PSG was confirmed last week when he announced his decision to leave the club at the end of his contract this summer. While the striker did not disclose his next destination, speculation has been rife about his potential move to Madrid, a scenario now seemingly confirmed by Tebas.

In an interview with Argentine sports newspaper Ole on Monday, Tebas affirmed Mbappe’s imminent switch to the Spanish capital. “He’s Madrid’s next season, yes,” stated Tebas, offering a definitive statement on the highly anticipated transfer.

The prospect of Mbappe joining Real Madrid has long been discussed, with the club reportedly pursuing the talented forward for several years. Now, with Mbappe’s departure from PSG imminent, Madrid appears poised to secure his services and bolster their already formidable lineup.

Mbappe is expected to join a star-studded Madrid squad featuring prominent names like Brazil’s Vinicius Junior and England international Jude Bellingham. Tebas emphasized the quality of Madrid’s roster but cautioned that talent alone does not guarantee success in football’s most prestigious competitions.

While Madrid has dominated the Spanish league and secured a spot in the Champions League final against Borussia Dortmund, Tebas noted that winning titles requires more than just individual talent. However, the addition of Mbappe undoubtedly strengthens Madrid’s championship ambitions, adding depth and firepower to their squad.

Mbappe’s tenure at PSG has been illustrious, with the striker emerging as the club’s all-time leading scorer with 256 goals. Despite his prolific contributions, PSG’s quest for Champions League glory has remained elusive, culminating in a runners-up finish to Bayern Munich in 2020.

By joining Real Madrid, a club synonymous with European success, Mbappe aims to enhance his chances of clinching the coveted Champions League trophy, solidifying his status as one of the world’s premier football talents. – AFP
