Even though the odds are stacked in favour of Real Madrid as far as Kylian Mbappe’s pursuit is concerned, there are other parties who continue to remain in the picture for his signing.

With Mbappe’s fate at PSG sealed, all signs point towards him leaving the club this summer, despite his insistence on wanting to see out the remaining year on his contract.

Real Madrid are keen on the 24-year-old and wish to close his signing by the second week of August, but could face some competition from other clubs.

Chelsea in the hunt for Mbappe?

According to journalist Pedro Morata on COPE, Chelsea are in the picture for the signing of Mbappe in the current transfer window.

Indeed, the Blues’ owner Todd Boehly has already called PSG president Nasser Al-Khelaifi to explore the possibility of a transfer.

Chelsea have bolstered their frontline already this summer with the additions of Christopher Nkunku and Nicolas Jackson, both of whom are impressing heavily in pre-season.

But under the new ownership, Chelsea have not held back as far as their spending in the market is concerned and it would not come as a surprise to see them go after Mbappe’s signing with intent.

Mbappe wants only Real Madrid

PSG are seeking a transfer fee of around €250 million for their prized asset – something that Los Blancos are reluctant to pay, but Chelsea could be open to meeting that valuation.

While talks might have begun between Chelsea and PSG, any move would require Mbappe to give the final green light.

But, the 24-year-old has no intention of signing for any other club apart from Real Madrid, having already turned down a mammoth €200 million contract from Al Hilal.

The longer the status quo continues, the better for Real Madrid as it would force PSG to accept a lower fee than their initial demands.

At the same time, though, Los Merengues wish to close the book on his signing ideally before the season kicks off in the second week of August. So, things could start moving in the coming days.

Jude Bellingham’s Euro 2024 campaign came to a heartbreaking end as England slumped to a 2-1 defeat against Spain in the final.

Bellingham was one of the better players for England in what was a hard-fought affair at the Olympiastadion. However, the Real Madrid star was not able to get his team over the line, with England conceding a late winner from Mikel Oyarzabal.

Bellingham was visibly disappointed at the result and was seen storming off the pitch and even kicking a drinks cooler in frustration.

Speaking to a press after the defeat, Bellingham expressed his thoughts, calling it a ‘heartbreaking result’.

“We all wanted nothing more than to make history and make people of England proud but we didn’t deliver. Going forward we will analyze it, it’s a young group,” he said (h/t Daily Mail).

Bellingham was indeed one of the more important players for an England side, which was criticised by many for their underwhelming performances

However, the Real Madrid star also looked at the positive. “It’s disappointing because we have to deliver at some point but there are things we can take from this,” he said.

“As a team, we will take the positives and negatives and we have to find a way to get it over the line,” the midfielder added.

While the defeat to Spain was certainly a blow for young Bellingham, the Englishman can hold his head up high, as he is coming on the back of a tremendous campaign that saw him secure the La Liga and the Champions League title.

For now, Bellingham will be looking forward to an extended summer break, before shifting his focus back to Real Madrid ahead of the new season.
