Kylian Mbappé is set to become Real Madrid's newest signing this summer after his announcement that he will leave PSG at the end of this season. Many Real Madrid fans are excited to see Mbappé wear the white jersey next season, as the Spanish club has been wanting to sign him for years. What many Madrid fans don't know is that the French star played for the club at one point, but in the youth team when he was 13 years old. A young Mbappé took trials at the Spanish club, where he played a match for the youth team and trained at the Spanish club's facilities.

Mbappé's contact with Real Madrid in 2022 was with the club president Florentino Perez, according to the Athletic. The Athletic reporter Mario Cortegana reports that Real Madrid were disappointed when Mbappé renewed his PSG contract in 2022. It was only in December last year that Real Madrid decided to go for him one final time in January. Several meetings took place, and Florentino agreed to go for him one last time.

Florentino Perez has been in direct contact with Mbappé to the extent that the forward told Perez himself that he was staying with PSG in May 2022. Some members of Mbappé's entourage were not happy with the lower contract offered by Real Madrid. The player, however, gave the club positive indications and told them he would inform PSG that he was leaving. Mbappé will still earn more than crucial players like Vinicius Jr. and Jude Bellingham. The French star is rumored to wear the number nine shirt next season unless Luka Modric leaves, which could lead to Mbappé wearing the number 10.

Florentino Perez's text message to Mbappé

According to Josep Pedrerol from El Chiringuito TV, when Mbappé sent a WhatsApp message to Florentino Perez in 2022 telling him he had renewed with PSG, Florentino replied: "I regret what has happened in the last days. They have broken the dream you had since you were a child." Now Perez will make Madrid fans happy to sign the French star on a free transfer.
