How good can Real Madrid be with Kylian Mbappe in their lineup ?

Kylian Mbappe is one of Football’s brightest young stars. The 25-year-old has enjoyed a successful career since gracing the football field for the first time in 2015 for AS Monaco. The talismanic forward burst onto the scene with the French side, helping them to a Champions League Semi-Final in 2017. His stellar performances for Monaco helped him attract a lot of attention from big European clubs, but he decided to remain in France and move his base to Paris. The move to Paris Saint Germain was expected to help the club get closer to Champions League glory, but 7 years later PSG still finds itself without any European trophy.

The 2018 World Cup winner has been the face of PSG and his presence has attracted many other world-class players. However, the experiment with star-studded players has been proven to be a failure for the club. Despite PSG’s failure in Europe, Kylian Mbappe has been a name that has always attracted a lot of attention from the biggest teams in the world. The frontrunner among all these sides has always been Real Madrid. The fourteen-time Champions League winners have been heavily invested in bringing the Frenchman to their club. It was reported that in 2022, the player was certainly going to complete the move, but discussions with owners of PSG and intervention from French President Emmanuel Macron led to a change in his decision.

However, after years of back and forth, it now looks like Mbappe will secure a move to Real Madrid in the summer of 2024. Reports from Fabrizio Romano suggested that the player is negotiating the final details of the deal with Real Madrid and will move to Spain after the end of the current season. The La Liga leader already have the likes of Vinicius Jr., Jude Bellingham, Camavinga and Tchouameni on the team. With the help of these names, the Los Blancos have been able to dominate in Europe and Spain. Adding Kylian Mbappe to the already stacked lineup will give it a whole new dimension and they will certainly wreak havoc across the footballing world.

Real Madrid has traditionally been a team with star players in their lineup. The early Galacticos era saw the likes of Ronaldo, David Beckham, Zinedine Zidane, Luis Figo and Roberto Carlos in the Real Madrid team. These were all some of the best players in their positions and had achieved a lot of success with their respective clubs before moving to Madrid. Having assembled all the pieces for the Galacticos team, Florentino Perez fulfilled his promise, but this came with its own set of problems. They were able to win La Liga in 2003, but post that went trophyless for three seasons, which is not acceptable for a club of the size of Real Madrid. This poses a very pertinent question to the club which is once again looking to stack a star-studded team that will this superstar lineup lead to immediate success?

What does the future look like for Kylian Mbappe if he moves to Real Madrid?

Despite the next transfer window being a few months away from now, Real Madrid has been busy plotting deals for the next season. They have been in talks with Kylian Mbappe to finally have him in Spain. Aside from that, there have been talks about bringing in Bayern Munich left-back Alphonso Davies into the team. Reports suggested that Davies has agreed to a move to Madrid, but now official talks between Real and Bayern are yet to take place before the Canadian can join the Spanish giants.

With Kylian Mbappe joining the likes of Vinicius Jr., and Rodrygo in the attacking trio, Madrid are set to be a team that can cause a lot of problems for opposition defences. To add more firepower, Madrid has to look no further than Jude Bellingham, who has totalled 20 goals in all competitions this season.

Despite their abundance of talent, one couldn’t help but wonder if they could all fit under one locker room. Real Madrid have had great chemistry this season. The arrival of Jude Bellingham has further solidified their position in world football, but with a few more stars set to be welcomed in the summer, things could get tricky for the Spanish giants. There is a lot of uncertainty surrounding the future of veterans Luka Modric and Toni Kroos. However, one thing that could work in favour of these young sensations is their drive to succeed.

Although they have accomplished a few titles over their careers, it’s safe to say that these youngsters have not reached their ceilings yet. When playing for a club like Real Madrid, there is a lot of pressure to win trophies and that could prove to be difficult, but if these stars can fight together, this coming era of the Galacticos could prove to be one of the greatest in the history of the club.
