  • Kylian Mbappe is all set to become a Real Madrid player
  • Reports claim the Frenchman has already signed a contract
  • Here are five things that might happen as a result of the move

Three certainties in life at the moment are death, taxes and Kylian Mbappe wearing the famous white Real Madrid shirt in the coming months.

The Frenchman, who was keen on having his future settled by March, reportedly told Paris Saint Germain he had no intentions of signing a new deal, with his current contract running out in the summer.

Amid interests from various big clubs across Europe, it appears the 25-year-old is finally set to appease Real Madrid by joining the Spanish giants after years of cat-and-mouse.

Sky Sports further reports that Mbappe has ‘already signed a five-year deal’ with Los Blancos and will take a considerable pay cut from what he is currently earning in Paris.

However, the Frenchman will still be the highest earner at the club, beating the likes of Vinicius Junior and former Borussia Dortmund midfielder Jude Bellingham.

Assuming everything goes according to plan and Mbappe finally becomes part of the Los Merengues, several events are likely to follow in the near future. , explores some of the scenarios.

1. Real Madrid will churn out a Ballon d’Or winner

Mbappe coming to Real Madrid only boosts the club’s chances of producing another Ballon d’Or winner.

The Frenchman is largely regarded as the best player in the world at the moment, and with Real Madrid being the most successful club in the world in terms of Ballon d’Or wins, according to Sporting News, it is not hard to see them producing another winner of the coveted accolade.

2. La Liga ratings/popularity will hike

To understand the magnitude of Mbappe’s impending move to Spain, the La Liga president Javier Tebas has been following the saga closely.

Tebas presumably knows what is at stake and recently exuded confidence that Mbappe would join Real Madrid.

The La Liga boss definitely knows millions of eyes will turn to the Spanish top tier, possibly at the expense of the French Ligue 1.

3. A possible era of Real Madrid dominance

Let’s make something clear: Real Madrid has always been a big club.

But one pain in the club’s ambitions has always been Barcelona, but the Catalan giants’ glory days seem to be well behind them.

Barca are in a rebuilding phase, while Real Madrid are as mighty as ever. Adding Mbappe to the Spanish giants will only add a gulf between Los Blancos and the rest of the La Liga teams, unless other rivals also decide to make extraordinary changes to their teams, which is unlikely.

4. A maiden Champions League for Mbappe

One trophy that has eluded Mbappe over the years is the Champions League.

Despite his best efforts, the 2018 World Cup winner always falls short, even with the addition of serial winner Lionel Messi to PSG in 2021.

But at Real Madrid, the 25-year-old stands a solid chance of clinching the most coveted club trophy in the world because of several factors, including the fact that he would be teaming up with the most successful club in the competition.

5. Real Madrid departures

One thing that comes with signing a player of Mbappe’s calibre is a huge wage bill.

With reports claiming Mbappe will sign a five-year deal, Real Madrid may need to balance their books by letting some players go.

In the recent past, Sergio Ramos and Keylor Navas moved to PSG from Madrid, and one can bet the two teams will likely transact in the near future after Mbappe’s departure.

Mbappe set to trademark his celebration

In other news, Sports Brief highlighted the steps Mbappe has reportedly taken to protect his trademark celebration and name.

The former Monaco man wants to own the intellectual right to the image alongside the name 'Mbappe.'

If he is successful, his goal celebration will be trademarked in 27 European countries, including Spain.
