Deal in place for Kylian Mbappe
Real Madrid have been heavily linked with a move for the Paris Saint-Germain attacker Kylian Mbappe.
The French World Cup winner is thought to be keen on a move away from Paris this summer, and he has been linked with Liverpool as well.
Mbappe is already one of the best players in world football, and he’s destined to develop into one of the superstars of the game.
According to reports, the Spanish giants already have a deal in place to sign the Frenchman, and it will be interesting to see if they can snap him up during the summer transfer window. They have an agreement with the player and his family.
Eden Hazard has proven to be a disappointing signing for Real Madrid, and the Spanish outfit will be looking to sort out their left flank with a quality signing this summer.
Mbappe would be a major improvement on hazard, and it remains to be seen whether the Spanish La Liga outfit decide to cash in on the Belgian.
Gareth Bale to retire at the end of next season
Meanwhile, Real Madrid winger Gareth Bale is expected to return to Santiago Bernabeu next season.
The 31-year-old Welsh international has done reasonably well during his loan spell at the Premier League club, but he wants to return to Spain next year.
Bale has one year left on his current contract with Real Madrid, and he’s planning to retire after that.
The Welshman has not been at his best for several months now, and it seems that he is falling out of love with the game.
It is evident that Bale is not a part of Zinedine Zidane’s first-team plans, and therefore his decision to return to Real Madrid could prove to be a mistake next year.
He’s unlikely to play regularly for the Spanish club, and he will have to accept a bench role at Santiago Bernabeu next season.
