Paris CNN —French soccer superstar Kylian Mbappé made a dramatic foray into the country’s election campaign this week, but don’t expect the striker to have an influence on the outcome. The far-right National Rally party of anti-immigration leader Marine Le Pen is leading in the polls, and most pundits suspect her populist movement has never come this close to power. Leaders of the French far-right National Rally, Marine Le Pen and Jordan Bardella, attend a rally ahead of the European Parliament elections where the party had huge success earlier this month. In 2006, Marine Le Pen’s father, far-right patriarch Jean-Marie Le Pen, suggested there were too many “players of color” on the national side. While millions will cheer them on at the Euros, they serve as a visible reminder of the country’s changing demographics — an issue which animates voters for the National Rally like no other.

CNN —Soccer superstar Kylian Mbappé was pictured wearing a French-inspired tricolore mask during a training session on Thursday, after the France captain broke his nose during the team’s opening Euro 2024 win against Austria three days ago. There had been fears the injury might rule Mbappé out of his nation’s second Group D match of Euro 2024 against the Netherlands on Friday, but France manager Didier Deschamps told reporters Thursday that the star should be available. The French Football Federation (FFF) said Mbappé was then taken to a local hospital, where X-rays confirmed the break. The swelling has come down on his nose,” France forward Antoine Griezmann said, per Reuters. “We’ll see the last minute, depending on how he’s feeling.”Mbappé was involved in non-contact training on Wednesday, wearing plasters over his nose.

The hostIt’s fair to say expectations for the German national team are not high within the host country. Expectations are low for the German national team. Didier Deschamps has been in charge of the national team since 2012 and last January extended his contract until 2026. After winning the World Cup and Nations League, Mbappé wants to add the Euros to his resume. That’s the only one that missed me with the national team after I did everything with the national team,” Mbappé told CNN recently.

CNN —French soccer superstar Kylian Mbappé said that there were “things and people that made me unhappy” during his final season at Paris Saint-Germain, in his first comments since his blockbuster move to Real Madrid. Mbappé was speaking at a media conference on Tuesday ahead of France’s friendly against Luxembourg and stressed that his long-expected move to Madrid was a “relief,” while also adding that his final season in Paris was filled with mixed emotions. While saying in general that he was happy in his final season, he went to detail one aspect that did make him unhappy. But his final season in Paris was overshadowed by speculation around his future. “I wish him all the best,” told CNN Sport’s Amanda Davies at the Globe Soccer Awards Forum in Sardinia, Italy.

French soccer star Kylian Mbappe will reportedly receive a signing-on bonus of at least £85 million, or $108.4 million, over the next five years after completing his much-anticipated move to Spanish giant Real Madrid. The 25-year-old World Cup winner is expected to officially join Real Madrid on a free transfer when his contract with Paris Saint-Germain expires at the end of June. A spokesperson for Real Madrid did not immediately respond to CNBC's request for comment. One of the photos showed Mbappe meeting former Real Madrid player and five-time Ballon d'Or winner Cristiano Ronaldo. Confirmation of Mbappe's move to Real Madrid came shortly after the Spanish club won the Champions League final for a record-extending 15th time.

CNN —Real Madrid announced the signing of French superstar Kylian Mbappé on a five-year deal on Monday, ending one of the longest-running transfer sagas in soccer. Mbappé’s move from Paris Saint-Germain comes two days after Real won a record-extending 15th European Cup with victory over Borussia Dortmund, adding further star quality to the team’s attack. Mbappé wrote on social media shortly after the announcement was made that the move was “a dream come true.”“So happy and proud to join the club of my dream @Real Madrid,” he said alongside a photo of himself when he was younger in a Madrid jacket. He played more than 300 games for the club, scoring his 250th goal in March and winning the Ligue 1 title a month later. But that could change at Real Madrid, with Los Blancos boasting unprecedented success in the competition, having won six European crowns over the past 10 years.

Real Madrid have been trying to land Kylian Mbappe for years — and now they finally have their man. Several meetings were held on the matter, but some senior figures at Madrid were not convinced it was a good idea. First of all, there were concerns the club’s interests could be damaged again after Mbappe’s rejection two years ago. On February 13, a Tuesday, Real Madrid played away against RB Leipzig in the first leg of a Champions League last-16 tie. In his acceptance speech, he did acknowledge Al-Khelaifi, who in 2021, 2022 and 2023 repeated that his star player would not leave PSG for free.

The easier bit was the 90 minutes as Real Madrid won a record-extending 15th Champions League title by beating Borussia Dortmund in Saturday’s final. Off the pitch, Madrid topped Deloitte’s Football Money League 2024 with the highest revenues across the game over 2022-23. Madrid had been thrashed 4-0 by Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City in their Champions League semi-final second leg, while Xavi’s Barcelona easily won La Liga title. The ratings below, based on a model devised by sports intelligence firm Twenty First Group, help show the strength of many Madrid players whose best days are still ahead of them.

CNN —Borussia Dortmund star Jadon Sancho is the first to admit “it’s kind of crazy” the way his season has panned out. “It’s kind of crazy, you know, I don’t think anyone would have expected this – me being in the Champions League final, especially where I came from. I don’t think I’ve fully recovered yet on that part, but I’m trying my best to get over that,” Sancho admitted to CNN Sport.

Now, Kylian Mbappé, who is widely expected to imminently join Real Madrid, says he’s looking forward to the challenge of playing in a new country. Spada/LaPresse/ShutterstockThe first time Real came calling for Mbappé was when the forward was just 13 years old. In his comic book, “Je m’appelle Kylian (I’m called Kylian),” Mbappé describes his dreams of one day playing in the famed white shirt of Los Blancos. We won the league and went to the semifinal of the Champions [League], but I did nothing important in the world of football. I’m French, I’m from Paris, so it was something special.

He’s won six Ligue 1 titles, three French Cups, two League Cups and a record five Player of the Year awards. The closest Mbappé came to winning the Champions League was reaching the final in 2020. Even if Mbappé was to lift one more trophy, can his time in Paris be considered a success if he didn’t achieve the club’s ultimate goal? “He’s their all-time top scorer, he’s won the league’s Player of the Year award five times in a row. “What’s interesting is he’s not necessarily captured the hearts of fans, especially in the way he’s left the club.

As a final scene it was so fitting that, for a second, it was possible to wonder if Kylian Mbappé had done it on purpose. He had reached the dying embers of Paris St.-Germain’s run in the Champions League. Yet again, the dream of European glory that powered the club for more than a decade had been dashed. Suddenly, here he was, clean through on goal: the best player in the world, the hometown icon who has come to symbolize P.S.G.’s ambition, prowess, excess and hubris, his flashbulb moment at his fingertips. And then, as Dortmund’s defiant back line trailed helplessly in his blistering wake, Mbappé slipped.

CNN —Jadon Sancho rediscovered some of his magic as he helped Borussia Dortmund to a 1-0 victory over Paris Saint-Germain in the first leg of its Champions League semifinal clash on Wednesday. Sancho, who returned to Dortmund on loan in January after an unsuccessful big-money move to Manchester United, was his elusive best as he proved a constant thorn in the Parisians’ side. It means Dortmund holds a slender one-goal advantage going into the second leg at the Parc des Princes next week. He scored 50 goals and registered 64 assists in four seasons with Dortmund, before making the move to the Premier League and Manchester United. “Sancho looks like a different player entirely.
