Kylian Mbappe is at the centre of the rumour mill heading into the summer transfer window after announcing his decision to not renew with PSG beyond 2024.

Real Madrid, who were planning to sign him for free next year, are now gunning for his signing this year itself, as Les Parisiens wish to offload him now rather than seeing him leave for free twelve months later.

This is even after Mbappe insisted that he wishes to stay in Paris for the upcoming season. The message from PSG is that either the forward renews his contract or is sold.

As such, there is a lot of interest surrounding the Mbappe situation, particularly from Real Madrid, who are understood to be willing to spend €200 million on his signing.

There had been murmurs of interest from Premier League heavyweights Manchester United as well, who are also in the market for a top-quality forward this summer.

However, Laurie Whitwell of The Athletic is reporting that sources from both Manchester United and PSG have ruled out the possibility of Mbappe moving to Old Trafford in the upcoming transfer window.

The talk of the Red Devils moving for Mbappe had come out due to their potential takeover by Sheikh Jassim of Qatar. While the ownership change at the Theatre of Dreams remains a strong possibility, there is little to no chance that it would lead to the Frenchman joining them this summer.

As per the report, Mbappe’s dream continues to be to play for Real Madrid and if he does indeed leave PSG, the idea is for him to end up at the Santiago Bernabeu, be it this year or the next.

It is now up to the 24-year-old, who scored 41 goals in 2022/23, and PSG to resolve the situation and decide whether he is sold this summer or allowed to remain at the club for one more season before he can leave for free. In either scenario, Real Madrid are likely the favourites to secure his signing.

Report: Real Madrid reactivate interest to sign €50 million-rated defender

According to a report from Mundo Deportivo, Real Madrid have decided to reactivate the operation to sign Alphonso Davies from Bayern Munich.

The Spanish football giant has shown interest in the Canadian star for quite some time but has yet to seal the deal. Now, following the conclusion of the Copa America, Real Madrid are reigniting their efforts to sign Davies.

Before the Copa America began, Davies mentioned that he would postpone any decisions about his future until after the tournament. 

With the competition now over, his future remains a hot topic for both Real Madrid and Bayern Munich, who are keenly monitoring the situation.

Real Madrid will not meet Bayern’s demand

Real Madrid are hesitant to meet Bayern Munich’s asking price of €50 million for Davies, whose current contract runs until 2025. 

Negotiations between Bayern Munich and Davies’ agent have been ongoing, but they haven’t reached an agreement. Davies is reportedly seeking a significant salary increase, rumoured to be around €20 million per season, which Bayern Munich has declined.

In light of this stalemate, Bayern Munich’s management has decided to withdraw their renewal offer, risking the possibility of Davies leaving for free when his contract expires in 2025. 

This development has opened the door for Real Madrid, who are preparing to make an offer that could potentially satisfy Bayern Munich’s demands.

Davies is likely to leave

In Germany, the consensus is that Davies is likely to leave Bayern Munich this summer, with Real Madrid being the most probable destination. The situation is fluid, but it appears that the Spanish club is in a strong position to acquire the talented Canadian defender.

For Real Madrid, securing a player of Davies’ calibre would be a significant boost to their squad. The club is known for its aggressive transfer strategies, and bringing in a player like Davies aligns with their goals.

As the summer transfer window progresses, the focus will remain on the negotiations between Real Madrid and Bayern Munich. 

Both clubs have a lot at stake, and the outcome will depend on their ability to find common ground regarding the transfer fee and Davies’ salary demands.
