With Kylian Mbappe’s future up in the air, almost every big club across Europe has taken note of the PSG superstar’s situation. And there seems to be growing interest in acquiring his services as it is starting to feel like the 24-year-old will be on his way out this summer.

Indeed, following his omission from the squad for the pre-season tour of Asia as well as the club’s decision to not let him play unless he either renews or accepts an exit, it appears that an exit is closer than ever.

Real Madrid, who hold a long-standing interest in Mbappe, are watching the situation develop with great attention as they look to strike if the forward relents and accepts to leave.

However, Los Blancos are no longer in pursuit of the 2018 FIFA World Cup winner as MARCA reports that Premier League bigwigs Chelsea, Manchester United, and Tottenham Hotspur are also interested in signing Mbappe.

Apart from the three English clubs, Saudi Arabia’s Al-Hilal are also keen on the 24-year-old and would be willing to offer a world-record fee as well as a gigantic contract to the player.

Chelsea have made some big moves in the transfer market over the past year and would be keen on Mbappe. However, given their recent dealings, UEFA is keeping a close eye on their finances and a move could be difficult unless there are more sales made.

Manchester United’s interest in Mbappe had been linked with their potential Qatari takeover. However, that does not appear to be the case as the Red Devils are looking at the Frenchman irrespective of any change in ownership.

As for Tottenham, their chairman Daniel Levy has been in talks with PSG president Nasser Al-Khelaifi recently, with the latter enquiring about Harry Kane. And it appears the Lilywhites have taken an interest in Mbappe’s situation.

Despite the growing interest in his services, Real Madrid continue to be Mbappe’s preferred destination, the report from MARCA states.

The same has been confirmed by the ever-reliable Fabrizio Romano as well, who claims that Mbappe’s priority is to play for Real Madrid.

The Italian transfer expert states that PSG will encourage other clubs to submit bids for their superstar, but are aware that he has his heart set on a move to the Santiago Bernabeu.

In the same manner, clubs from Saudi Arabia will also make attempts to try and sign the French attacker even though they know that he wants to sign for Los Merengues.

Real Madrid, though, are not in a hurry to make any move as they believe time is on their side and the further the saga continues, the more PSG would be forced to accept a lower fee.

Mbappe, for his part, has remained unfazed by the development even though there is a possibility that he might spend the entire next season on the bench if he does not leave or renew.

    Tottenham must stay out on Mbappe’s radar as we know that this is not realistic. Let’s rather focus on signing Randal Kolo Muani, he is also a Gem.

Euro 2024: Rating every Real Madrid player’s performance at the tournament

The UEFA Euro 2024 came to an end last night with Spain being crowned the champions of Europe thanks to a 2-1 victory over England in Berlin.

Considering how well La Roja played throughout the tournament and their performance in the finals on Sunday night, they were the deserved winners of the trophy.

With Spain lifting the trophy, Real Madrid veteran defender Dani Carvajal added another title to his already successful campaign finishing 2023/24 as a La Liga, Champions League, and EURO winner.

Nacho and Joselu, who were still contracted with Real Madrid when the Euro started, joined Carvajal on that list while Jude Bellingham finished on the losing side.

Real Madrid had a total of 13 players representing them at the Euros in Germany and not all managed to make a solid impression. Here are how the Merengues’ stars fared at the European Championships.


Dani Carvajal: 8/10

The Spanish right-back was one of the stars of the show at the Euros, playing an integral role in La Roja’s success. Carvajal kicked off his first Euro with a goal in the opening game against Croatia and continued to be a reliable player for Spain both in defence and attack.

Carvajal forged a strong partnership with Barcelona’s Lamine Yamal on the right flank and even played a key role in the team’s opening goal against England in the final.

Nacho: 6/10

Technically no longer a Real Madrid player, Nacho was still contracted with the club when the Euros kicked off. Starting in the opener against Croatia, he helped Spain to a clean sheet against Croatia.

The veteran defender also put in solid shifts in the quarter-final and semi-final ties against Germany and France, respectively and helped see out the game against England last night.

Joselu: N/A

Behind the likes of Alvaro Morata and Mikel Oyarzabal in the pecking order, Joselu, who left Real Madrid at the end of June, played just 90 minutes across two games.


Jude Bellingham: 6.5/10

Having enjoyed a dream season with Real Madrid, Jude Bellingham was unable to replicate those performances for England.

While he did score two crucial goals, including a stunning bicycle kick to keep his team alive against Slovakia, and assisted Cole Palmer’s strike in the finals, his overall display left a lot to be desired.


Kylian Mbappe: 6/10

Real Madrid’s newest acquisition, all eyes were on Mbappe heading into the Euros. And even though France made it as far as the semi-finals, the 25-year-old failed to live up to the expectations with a nose injury impacting his displays.

Mbappe finished the tournament with a solitary goal and two assists, but as he admitted after the defeat to Spain, his Euro will go down as a failure.

Aurelien Tchouameni: 6/10

Making a return from injury during the tournament, the Real Madrid midfielder was a solid presence in the centre of the park for France alongside N’Golo Kante without really standing out a great deal.

The 24-year-old provided strength and stability in midfield for Les Bleus and even tried to get upfield in matches. But his shooting from distance was way off the mark.

Eduardo Camavinga: 5/10

Starting just one of France’s six games and featuring as a substitute in three more, Eduardo Camavinga was not a major presence for Didier Deschamps’ side at the Euros which came as a surprise.

The Real Madrid starlet did show glimpses of quality when he did get a chance but not enough for him to make an impact.

Ferland Mendy: N/A

Having made a return to the France setup for the first time since 2022, Mendy did not play a single minute at the Euros, with former Real Madrid left-back, Theo Hernandez being preferred by the manager.


Antonio Rudiger: 7/10

Carrying on from where he left off for Real Madrid, Rudiger was a solid presence at the heart of the German defence at the Euros in his homeland.

Came up against some tricky forwards throughout the hosts’ quarterfinal run but did well to hold his own, but was guilty of losing Mikel Merino for Spain’s goal that eliminated Germany.

Toni Kroos: 6.5/10

It was not a fairytale ending for Kroos, who waved goodbye to his international career with a forgettable display against Spain during which he could have been easily sent off for the array of fouls he committed.

Prior to that, however, Kroos was instrumental for Germany in their run until the quarterfinals, stringing play together from the centre of the park.


Arda Guler: 7/10

One of the breakout stars of the Euros, Arda Guler showcased his talent and potential, helping Turkey to the quarterfinals of the tournament.

The 19-year-old started off with a wonder-goal against Georgia and also added two assists to his tally in his first major tournament, following in the footsteps of greats like Cristiano Ronaldo and Wayne Rooney. A bright future awaits.


Luka Modric: 6/10

Unlike recent years, Luka Modric’s Croatia were unable to get past the group stages, with the veteran midfielder finishing the tournament with a goal from under 240 minutes.


Andriy Lunin: 2/10

Started the tournament as Ukraine’s No. 1 against Romania but made costly errors that saw him lose his place in the starting XI. Did not feature again after the opener as his team crashed out of the group stages.
