Real Madrid played their final game of the league last night as Santiago Bernabeu bid adieu to a club legend in Toni Kroos.

A lot, needless to say, is set to change this summer. The German’s departure did come as a shock to many, but it is only one of the numerous departures expected.

Kylian Mbappe, meanwhile, headlines the arrivals front.

The PSG superstar played his final game for the club last night and is gearing up for his move to Madrid, although no official announcement has been made yet.

Mbappe opens up on Real Madrid move

Speaking to the media after his final game for the Parisien club via Mundo Deportivo, the French winger was asked directly why he would not admit that he had signed for Real Madrid despite the transfer being taken for granted.

“Because I think that, first of all, I had to say goodbye and I wanted to end my club well,” he said, insisting that it would be out of respect for his current employers to announce the move just yet.

He then went on to reveal that an official announcement is not far away, although he did not reveal when it would be made.

“There is a time for everything. I will announce my new club when the time comes. [In] a few days maybe, there is no problem.”

Finally, Mbappe was asked if the official announcement would arrive before the beginning of the European Championships in Germany, to which he said,

“I don’t know yet because some details are missing.”

Hinting at success in Madrid

Also speaking to the media after last night’s game, Mbappe cryptically spoke about the club he was set to join without revealing any clues about his destination.

“What I have had here I will not find anywhere, but I will have other things and I know they will also be fantastic,” he said, looking forward to the chapter that lay ahead of him.

Having already purchased a mansion in Madrid and with the paperwork all but done, Mbappe is set to move to the Spanish capital in the coming days.

An official announcement can arrive after Los Blancos’ UEFA Champions League final, although they will require the green light from PSG for the same.

France NT growing concerned about Real Madrid star’s fitness ahead of Euros

Real Madrid star Aurelien Tchouameni is currently with the French National Team in preparation for the upcoming European Championships.

Didier Deschamps and Co. were hoping that the defensive midfielder would make a complete recovery from the stress injury on his left foot in time for the Euros, but his situation does not appear as favourable any longer.

With the commencement of the competition approaching fast, the French setup are worried and must make a decision fast, as revealed by SPORT.

Long time out

Les Bleus are still living in the optimism that Tchouameni will make it back in time for the premier event. With every passing day, however, the Real Madrid star’s availability is looking more distant.

After all, the deep-lying midfielder last played over a month ago in Real Madrid’s UEFA Champions League semifinal against Bayern Munich. Since then, he missed four league games, the UCL final and two friendly games with the national team.

Should the Frenchman recover in time, there will be questions raised about his match-fitness and rightly so for 40 days is a very long hiatus in the world of football.

Urgent decision

The medical team of the French national setup have reportedly devised a specific plan to ensure that the youngster recovers at the earliest and is available for the event in Germany.

Deschamps, however, has a critical decision to make as he will not be allowed to make any changes to his squad after the tournament begins. His deadline, thus, is the 17th of June before his team’s clash against Austria.

The manager hopes to recover Tchouameni at all costs and will likely wait until the nth minute before taking a decision.

Should a replacement be required, a UEFA Medical Committee doctor will have to confirm that the injury is indeed as serious as the camp believe.
