LaLiga president Javier Tebas has said he is certain that Kylian Mbappe will join Real Madrid this summer.
A long-term target of Real Madrid, Mbappe has yet to sign a new contract with Paris Saint-Germain and becomes a free agent this summer.
Tebas also said that Mbappe will not be the only top signing by Madrid in the coming transfer window.
“Madrid will get Mbappe and [Erling] Haaland as the others [Barcelona and Juventus] are half [financially] ruined,” he said.
“That Mbappe comes is great news for LaLiga. It would be a joy for LaLiga. It’s the best thing that could happen to LaLiga.”
Tebas later clarified his comments regarding Mbappe and said that while he does not have any facts, there is strong indication that the France international will leave PSG at the end of the season.
“I have no information regarding Mbappe,” Tebas said.
“But I’ve seen few cases of players who have six months left on their contracts that have not renewed their contracts and then went on to continue at the club.”
PSG turned down a €200 million bid from Real Madrid for Mbappe last summer.
Mbappe’s family has been in talks with the Ligue 1 leaders over a short-term extension but no deal has been reached.
