Kylian Mbappé and Thierry Henry basically confirmed the Real Madrid move happening

French President Emmanuel Macron visited Mbappé at the French national team training session. Macron asked Mbappé, “Is the announcement [Mbappé to Real Madrid] today?” Mbappé then said, “Tonight, tonight.” The French star also removed PSG from his bio on Instagram, which also hints that the announcement is very close to happening, and many fans are waiting for the official statement by Real Madrid and the player himself. Real Madrid has been after the French star for many years and was close to signing him in 2022, but the player decided to extend his contract with PSG.

Thierry Henry, the manager of the U23 French national team for the Summer Olympics, accidentally revealed that Mbappé would go to Real Madrid when asked why the French star was not on the list for the Olympics. Henry said, “Real Madrid were really straight forward about the Olympics—the last time I suffered this many rejections was back in my college days.”
