With Kylian Mbappe’s future at PSG once again taking centre stage, Real Madrid are keeping a close eye on developments surrounding the 24-year-old superstar.

However, as per reports relayed by Mundo Deportivo, Real Madrid are not the only club monitoring the situation around Mbappe as Arsenal, too, are keeping tabs on the French attacker.

The Gunners have just reinforced their frontline with the signing of Kai Havertz, another player that was on Real Madrid’s radar. And they are now closely watching the situation with Mbappe and any possible developments.

Mbappe confirmed his desire to not renew with PSG when his contract expires next year. As a result, the Parisian giants wish to sell him this summer unless he signs a new deal.

But the player is intent on staying and seeing out the final year of his contract at the club as he stands to lose an enormous amount of money in salary and loyalty bonus if he leaves this summer.

So, the possibility of Mbappe, who scored 41 goals last season for PSG, signing a new two or three-year contract that includes a verbal commitment for him to be sold next year is not ruled out either.

Either way Real Madrid are waiting for the situation between PSG and the player to develop before they make their move. But it seems like Arsenal too are waiting in the wings.

Even though the Londoners believe that the 24-year-old is likely to join Real Madrid, they plan on making an attempt for one of the world’s best attackers.

Real Madrid usurped the top spot in the La Liga standings from arch-rivals FC Barcelona as they defeated Girona 3-0 away at Estadi Montilivi.

It was a fine performance from Carlo Ancelotti’s men against Michel’s side, with the returning Jude Bellingham leading the way for his team.

After being benched against Las Palmas in midweek, the England international returned to the starting XI today and turned in yet another Man of the Match display for Real Madrid.

It all started with Joselu opening the scoring just 15 minutes into the game, with Bellingham assisting the goal with a special, outside-of-the-boot pass from the left side, bringing back memories of Luka Modric doing something similar a few years ago.

Talking about that special pass, Bellingham said: “I’ve been watching Luka every day for months. I just want to be creative. It took the pressure off us at the start.”

On the match and the result, the 20-year-old stated that it was a good day across the board for Real Madrid, as he said: “It was an important win. They were doing very well. We made a statement of intent to La Liga. Three goals, a clean sheet….”

It has been a truly remarkable start to life at Real Madrid for Bellingham and expressing how he feels to play for the Merengues, he exclaimed:

“I feel very good. I have freedom of movement and I’m enjoying football. Whenever I put on this shirt I always try to do my best.”

Apart from assisting Joselu’s opener, Bellingham also got his name on the scoresheet in the second period. Talking about his goal, the wonderkid said:

“It wasn’t a very good finish. I could have scored some more, but the important thing is the victory.”

The strike meant that Bellingham now has seven goals and two assists across all competitions for Real Madrid. Reflecting on his brilliant start, he said:

“It’s a good start, not bad. I would like to continue on this path and I won’t always score or assist, but I will always give my best.”

Bellingham’s celebration has been a huge hit, with kids in school, players from other clubs, and many others mimicking it. When asked how his special celebration originated, he replied:

“I don’t know where I first celebrated. I think it was with Birmingham. It’s an inspiration to see kids doing it in schools. It’s a wonderful thing.”
