Real Madrid has announced that Kylian Mbappe has signed a five-year deal to join the Spanish club from Paris Saint-Germain.

Mbappe is one of the most prolific forwards in world football.

"Real Madrid have reached an agreement for the player to be at Real Madrid for the next five seasons," the club said in a statement.

On his part, Mbappe, 25, said on his X account that the move was "a dream come true".

"So happy and proud to join the club of my dream @realmadrid. Nobody can understand how excited I am right now. Can't wait to see you, Madridistas, and thanks for your unbelievable support.”

According to reports in Spain, he will earn 35 million euros a season.

Mbappe had verbally agreed to move to Real in February and then announced in May he would leave PSG at the end of the season.

Real, fresh from winning their 15th Champions League on Saturday with a 2-0 victory against Borussia Dortmund, moved to confirm the deal on Monday before Mbappe is involved in pre-Euro 2024 friendlies for France.

A World Cup winner as a teenager in 2018, Mbappe scored a club record 256 goals for PSG since joining the Qatar-owned club from Monaco on an initial loan in 2017.

He eventually moved to PSG in a 180-million-euro ($195 million) deal -- all at 18.

Mbappe helped PSG to six Ligue 1 titles and steered them to the 2020 Champions League final, but they lost to Bayern Munich.

He scored a hat-trick in the World Cup final against Argentina in Qatar in 2022 but still finished on the losing side as Lionel Messi's Argentina won on penalties.

At Real Mbappe will form a formidable attacking trio with Brazilian forward Vinicius Jr and England international midfielder Jude Bellingham.
