Real Madrid will reportedly choose between signing Erling Haaland and Kylian Mbappe in the summer of 2024.
Los Blancos have been long-time admirers of French superstar Mbappe and narrowly missed out on him last summer after he chose to sign a two-year contract extension with PSG.
But according to French publication L’Equipe, the 24-year-old’s contract at Parc des Princes will end in the summer of 2024 as he is increasingly unlikely to trigger the option of extending his deal by another 12 months – which he must do by the end of July.
This means that Mbappe will be available for free next summer, which could entice Real Madrid.

Despite this, L’Equipe are reporting that Los Blancos are also keeping tabs on Manchester City star striker Erling Haaland and might attempt to sign him. In addition, Madrid expects Karim Benzema to sign a one-year extension soon, with the Frenchman expected to leave at the end of the 2023-24 season to make way for a new superstar signing.
Meanwhile, if Kylian Mbappe decides to sign for Real Madrid, he must take a significant pay cut to seal the move. Moreover, he might be required to play more centrally as Vinicius Jr. is currently the number one choice on the left wing.
