Carlo Ancelotti responds to rumours of Mbappe to Real Madrid in January

Over the past 24 hours, the rumour mill has been going wild with speculations about Kylian Mbappe wanting to leave Paris Saint-Germain at the earliest possible.

Even though PSG director Luis Campos has denied any such development, it seems like the 23-year-old French superstar is unsettled and unhappy at Parc des Princes and is already pushing for a separation of ways, just five months after he signed a lucrative contract.

And, it has also been claimed that the 2018 FIFA World Cup winner desires to join Real Madrid, even though he had snubbed the Merengues in favour of a new contract at the French capital club.

Contradicting reports are emerging on Real Madrid’s stance on the matter, with some publications saying that Los Blancos are favourites to land Mbappe while others claim that Florentino Perez & co. want nothing to do with the French international.

Following the Spanish and European champions’ 1-1 draw against Shakhtar Donetsk in the UEFA Champions League on Tuesday night, a journalist from Canal+ asked manager Carlo Ancelotti if he sees Mbappe arriving at Real Madrid in the January transfer window.

In response, the Italian tactician said (h/t Canal+): “Let’s stay serious, please! You are brave to ask me that. I don’t have to answer.”

At one point earlier this year, Mbappe looked certain to join Real Madrid from PSG on a free transfer, with his contract expiring. However, the Frenchman made a last-minute swerve and signed a bumper new contract with the French club, leaving Los Blancos red-faced.

But, with his situation in Parc des Princes said to be unstable, it will certainly be interesting to see if Real Madrid consider rekindling their interest in Mbappe or whether they have closed the book on that matter for good.

The current edition of the Real Madrid squad is full of young talents, who have shown remarkable potential in recent years.

Arda Guler is among the young players looking to make a mark in European football in the years to come.

The young Turk joined Real Madrid earlier this summer, rejecting many other European giants in the process.

Toni Kroos mentoring Guler at Real Madrid

Guler has not enjoyed the best of starts to his life at Santiago Bernabeu, as he is spending a brief time on the sidelines due to an injury.

However, Guler has not stopped working on his characteristics, as he looks to kickstart his Real Madrid career on a positive note.

To that end, the former Fenerbahce starlet is receiving some key support from one of Real Madrid’s midfield pillars in the form of Toni Kroos.

This is according to MARCA, which suggests that the German international is mentoring Guler in his early days at Santiago Bernabeu.

Kroos: huge ‘sponsor’ of Guler

The report highlights how Toni Kroos is a huge admirer of Arda Guler. The German had even heaped praise on the youngster from Turkey when he joined the club earlier in the summer.

Guler, therefore, is closely training with Kroos, whose years of experience, composure, and knowledge of football, could help the youngster grow at Santiago Bernabeu.

This fits in well with Carlo Ancelotti’s vision at Real Madrid, as the Italian boss wants youngsters to have room to grow, especially with guidance from some of the older guards in the team.

It is one of the key reasons Real Madrid wanted to stick to Kroos and Luka Modric, despite bringing in Arda Guler and Jude Bellingham in the summer.

Guler, therefore, has the stage set for him to start his Real Madrid career on a strong note. After impressing in training, the next step for the youngster is to make a promising debut, which is just around the corner.
