Mbappe to join Madrid at end of season


France captain Kylian Mbappe will join La Liga giants Real Madrid when his contract with Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) finishes at the end of the season, Le Parisien and ESPN reported on Saturday. Mbappe said in 2023 he would not renew his contract at the Ligue 1 side when it expired at the end of the 2023-24 campaign, allowing him to move on to another club on a free transfer. He has been free to sign a pre-contract agreement since the transfer window opened on Jan 1. French newspaper Le Parisien and ESPN, citing sources, said the 25-year-old striker would announce a pre-contract agreement with the 14-times European champions in the coming week.
