Will Kylian Mbappe make his Real Madrid debut in the upcoming El Clasico?

The PSG superstar expressed his desire to leave the French capital at the business end of this season, once his current deal with the club expires. He has been heavily linked with a move to Santiago Bernabeu who are likely the frontrunners for his signature.

It is widely expected that the Frenchman will complete a free transfer and move to Madrid which has long been touted as a potential destination for the Frenchman. The PSG hierarchy tried their best to offer Mbappe a new contract but the forward is adamant about a move out of the French capital.

Both Real Madrid and Mbappe seem like a match made in heaven, as one of the brightest players will join the Galacticos this summer. If the move sanctions in the summer, Mbappe will be expected to participate in Real Madrid’s pre-season tour of the United States.

The forward can get the first taste on El Clasico when both Barcelona and Real Madrid lock horns at the Metlife Stadium on August 3rd, 2024.
