In Qatar, they already know that the world champion wanted to wear the white of Real Madrid this season. Mbappe’s possible arrival has gone from a footballing matter to a matter of state, although it could seem the opposite.


Real Madrid won’t give up

In the modern era of Real Madrid, since 2000 to today, no other operation has been so carefully looked after, planned, thought out and executed in detail like this one. For example, Zinedine Zidane arrived at Real Madrid a year after famously signing a napkin, but those months involved movements, negotiations and situations which are totally different to those of the French striker at PSG.

Juventus negotiated for Zidane, just as Inter did for Ronaldo and Manchester United did for David Beckham. Ever since Florentino Perez’s famous “don’t worry” to Josep Pedrerol in April, the club have been on alert to make sure that no one could do anything to jeopardise the most complicated signing of his presidency.


Negotiations are still going on

Real Madrid haven’t wanted anyone or anything to interfere with the operation, which consists of only two spokespeople, the president of Real Madrid and the Emir of Qatar. Tamim Bin Hamad Al Zani is the man who would give the green light to the move, which would allow Perez to act, but there are no intermediaries or external pressures as used in other deals.

In the past few months, nobody at Real Madrid or in their name has tried to get closer to PSG, despite the efforts of many agents, who have all been turned away. They all know that everything depends on one phone call, with no need for a circus around the Parisian club, as Real Madrid aim to avoid angering their counterparts. Since March, everyone at the Estadio Santiago Bernabeu has known that there is only one signing in mind for the club and Mbappe is the only target.
