According to the Spanish radio station Cadena SER, Real Madrid has reportedly made the decision not to sign Kylian Mbappé. However, RMC Sport suggests that the situation is not so clear-cut.
The reasons cited for this decision include concerns about potentially jeopardizing the club’s wage structure with a player whose salary would exceed €20 million. Additionally, Real Madrid believes that the arrival of Mbappé, who will turn 25 in December, doesn’t align with their new recruitment strategy, which focuses on signing players aged 20 or younger. Finally, a decrease in Mbappé’s popularity among supporters and certain club officials since his refusal to sign in 2022 is also considered a factor.

The information from Cadena SER should be taken with caution. Just a few days ago, other Spanish media outlets claimed that Mbappé was an “obsession” for President Florentino Perez. Could there be a change in circumstances? We’ll find out in the coming months.
RMC Sport suggests that this information is mainly aimed at protecting the image of Real Madrid. They state that the club wants to “keep its distance from Kylian Mbappé to preserve the club’s image if there is no signing this summer.” In other words, the message the Real Madrid wants to convey is that they are no longer pursuing Mbappé. According to RMC Sport, “even if this leak serves the interests of Real Madrid, some members of the club are indeed in favor of abandoning the pursuit of Mbappé.”
