MADRID (AP) – Kylian Mbappé has signed a contract to play for Real Madrid in a union of the sport’s top talent and its most successful club.

Madrid said on Monday that Mbappé agreed to a five-year contract.

The 25-year-old World Cup winner with France joins a Madrid team that is already loaded with talent and still celebrating its record-extending 15th European Cup title.

Until now, Mbappé has played club soccer only for French teams – first at Monaco and for the past seven seasons at Paris Saint-Germain, which he left as a free agent after failing to persuade him to extend his contract.

In 2021, Madrid was rejected after offering PSG a bid of 180 million euros – the same amount PSG paid Monaco for a teenage Mbappé years earlier.
