As Kylian Mbappe’s rift with Paris Saint-Germain continues to widen, a report from RMC Sport has emerged that Premier League giants Chelsea happen to be one of the several clubs interested in his acquisition.

Mbappe, who was recently excluded from PSG’s pre-season Asia tour, has always maintained that he wants to see out his ongoing deal which ends in 2024, basically meaning that he wants to leave the team as a free agent.

PSG, on the other hand, are feeling betrayed by the player’s behaviour and they are of the idea that he has already agreed a free transfer with Real Madrid.

Since it has been established PSG do not want to be ‘paralysed’ by the demands of the forward, they have decided to put him up on the market.

As of today, PSG want to sell Mbappe as soon as possible and for that, they are open to every solution. This is where Chelsea have positioned themselves among other teams like Al-Hilal.

Now, it is safe to assume that joining the Saudi side is a far-fetched idea at the moment, but a move to the Premier League can be a tempting proposition, considering the money they can offer.

As reported by the aforementioned media, Chelsea and at least one other unnamed English club are trying to get close to the player.

As far as Al-Hilal are concerned, the French publication claim that they are ready to offer Mbappe €400 million over two years.

When it comes to the transfer fee, the Saudi team will reportedly offer PSG €200 million for the star forward and if Mbappe does not give a positive response to the extension, PSG would accept the offer.

At the same time, it must be understood that since the player is under contract until 2024, PSG cannot force him out, meaning that the final decision rests with the player himself.

Amidst all this, Real Madrid continue to monitor the situation carefully, knowing that Mbappe wants to join them. What now remains to be seen is whether the Frenchman yields and accepts to leave this summer or remains firm on seeing out his contract.

Real Madrid youngster Mario Martin finds himself at an interesting juncture in his fledgeling career.

The midfield prospect is well-liked at the club after impressing with Castilla in the past two seasons while first-team manager Carlo Ancelotti is also an admirer of the player.

While Martin seems to have reached the end of his cycle in Castilla, a spot in the first-team squad is not necessarily available right away, unless Dani Ceballos ends up leaving.

Plenty of interest in Mario Martin

Now, The Athletic reports that Mario Martin is a player in demand in La Liga with half the teams in the Spanish top flight eager to sign him up this summer.

As has already been reported, Real Valladolid and RCD Espanyol are understood to have shown a strong interest in the 20-year-old midfield talent.

However, it appears that there are a plethora of other clubs in La Liga who would be happy to sign Martin from Real Madrid in the current transfer window.

Martin wants to stay

But, the report states Martin is leaning towards staying put at Real Madrid at this point even though the prospects of regular first-team minutes are highly unlikely.

The 20-year-old, who has made four senior appearances for Los Blancos thus far, has a contract that runs until the summer of 2026.

Real Madrid, for their part, are not necessarily ruling out a sale provided a good offer comes along.

Even if they do part ways with Martin, the Spanish capital club would very much likely insert an affordable buyback clause as they have been doing in recent times for departing youth players.
