The Kylian Mbappe transfer saga has been the focus of the summer transfer window, with the Frenchman at odds with his club Paris Saint-Germain, and both parties looking for a chance to move on to different paths in the future.
Although Mbappe has been the star at PSG and established himself as one of the best players in the world, he wants to realise his dream of playing at the Santiago Bernabeu for Real Madrid.
It is a well-known fact that Mbappe is seeking a transfer to the Spanish capital, but if any more speculation was required, fans seem to think that the 24-year-old has shared a secret message indicating his desire to join Los Blancos.
In an Instagram post, Mbappe shared four images, one of which was a picture of three playing cards, all of them being 9s. Some have interpreted this as a cryptic message on behalf of the World Cup star, with Madrid in the market for a top-quality striker following the departure of long-time wearer of the number 9 shirt, Karim Benzema.
Mbappe started off as a winger, but has developed into a weapon at the tip of the attack in recent years, and could be exactly what Real Madrid are looking for.
Supported in attack by the exciting and devastating Vinicius Jr and Rodrygo. The vacancy of the number 9 shirt could see Mbappe making it his own if he chooses to join Los Blancos.
PSG are also extremely keen to sell Mbappe, with the Frenchman’s contract expiring in 2024 and the Parisian hierarchy fearing losing out on his services for free.
