A dizzying transfer window entered its final hours on Tuesday with superstars Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo changed clubs. However, questions over whether Kylian Mbappe could make a successful move to Real Madrid from Paris Saint-Germain, right now are still unsolved. Confirmation of Mbappe’s future dominated the final day of a remarkable window. This season, after devoting an entire career at Barcelona, Lionel Messi completed football transfer to PSG and Ronaldo’s sensational return to the former Manchester United club.
22-year-old Mbappe’s future is potentially more important for the sport in the long run while the moves of 34-year-old Messi and 36-year-old Ronaldo are changes in world football’s tectonic plates. It is believed that Real Madrid’s fortune could be significantly improved with World winner Mbappe’s goals. In the Spanish title, last season Real were beaten by local rivals Atletico Madrid.
Amidst Real’s continued attack, Qatar-owned club Paris Saint-Germain struggled to keep their star striker with signing Messi to join a formidable attacking trio with Neymar and Mbappe. A source close to PSG has reported that after failing offers of €160 million ($189 million) and €180 million, the Spanish giants made a third offer of €200 million.
If Paris-born Mbappe keeps up with every passing hour, chances look high, then PSG will think he has the strongest chance of winning the elusive Champions League yet. In addition to adding Messi, the club has more transfers as it has signed four-time Champions League winner Sergio Ramos from Real Madrid and one of the world’s top goalscorers Gianluigi Donnarumma for a free transfer from AC Milan. PSG also strengthened Liverpool’s own midfielder Georginio Wijnaldum and Moroccan right-back Achraf Hakimi, who shone for Inter Milan last season.
