Mbappe’s current contract ends at the end of the season. This means that the 22-year-old could leave on a free transfer. As a result, the World Cup champion may play at Madrid with international teammate Karim Benzema and Belgium winger Eden Hazard next season.

Last night, according to El Partidazo on Cadena Cope radio, Eden Hazard seemed to shout ‘Hala Madrid’ to PSG’s Mbappe during Belgium’s match against France. While there is confirmation of the claim, whatever Hazard said made Mbappe chuckle, and he smirked to himself as he prepared for the encounter.
