BREAKING: Real Madrid Announce Mbappe Transfer After Champions League Triumph

The newly-crowned European champions have announced that one of modern football's most prodigious talents is moving to the Santiago Bernabeu on a five-year contract.

Mbappe is joining Real Madrid as a free agent after he announced last month that he will be leaving Paris Saint Germain at the end of his contract this summer.

"Real Madrid C. F. and Kylian Mbappe have reached an agreement whereby he will be a Real Madrid player for the next five seasons," the Spanish champions said in a statement.

"A dream come true, So happy and proud to join the club of my dream," Mbappé said in a post on X.

"Nobody can understand how excited I am right now. Can't wait to see you, Madridistas, and thanks for your unbelievable support. ¡Hala Madrid!"

Mbappe initially joined PSG from AS Monaco in the summer of 2017 on loan before the move was made permanent the following year for £165m.

He leaves PSG as the club's all-time record goalscorer with 256 goals in 308 appearances.

Mbappe won the Ligue 1 title six times, the Coupe de France four times and the Coupe de la Ligue two times.
