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 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.”
