Kylian Mbappe has been one of world football’s hottest properties for a few years now. At the tender age of 23, he is one of the poster boys for Ligue 1 champions PSG and is also a world cup winner.

The youngster’s desire to join Real Madrid is well documented, with him being vocal about it on several occasions. With his contract running out in June, Los Blancos see it as the ideal time to plan the swoop.

According to the ever-reliable Fabrizio Romano, there is a huge chance that Mbappe joins Real Madrid in the summer as a free agent.

PSG are trying desperately to get the forward to sign a renewal. They promise to make him the highest-paid player in the world and the leader of their project. However, Mbappe’s heart is set on Madrid.

Los Blancos submitted an official bid for the French international in the last summer window, but their approach was instantly rejected by the Parisians. This June, they will not have to deal with the club as Mbappe will be a free agent.

It is speculated that Real Madrid are offering him a contract worth €50 million a year, which is far superior to his current salary (€41 million). Moreover, many outlets have said that the two parties already have an agreement in place.

Real Madrid takes on PSG in the Round of 16 of the UEFA Champions League next week. One could expect an official announcement regarding Mbappe’s future after the blockbuster clash. As of now, the French star has refused to comment on his next club.

Joao Cancelo has, for a long time, been considered one of the best full-backs in the world of football. What makes the Portuguese international special is not just his ability to contribute flawlessly at both ends of the field but also the fact that he can recreate his magic on both flanks.

For a player of such quality to depart Manchester City unsurprisingly broke the internet. Cancelo signed for Bayern Munich on a six-month loan in January with a whopping €70 million purchase clause included in the paperwork.

According to reports from AS, the player preferred a move to Spain. Both Real Madrid and Barcelona were offered Cancelo’s services, and it was only after both La Liga giants rejected it that Bayern Munich got the chance to sign him.

For the Catalans, the player’s salary was the hurdle preventing his arrival. In Real Madrid’s case, however, it was the board’s reluctance to change the squad midway through the season.

For a long time now, Real Madrid have maintained a low profile in winter transfer windows. Carlo Ancelotti liked the full-back’s profile and saw him as a good fit, but the management would not hear of it.

Real Madrid have had a torrid time at the full-back position in recent weeks, indicating that the squad was in urgent need of new signings.

For almost a month, Ancelotti has been without a right-back after both Lucas Vazquez and Dani Carvajal suffered injuries. Just as the latter recovered, Ferland Mendy hobbled off the field and could miss six weeks of action.

Cancelo’s signing would have thus been the ideal way to kill two birds with one stone. Nevertheless, the management have their faith in the young Vinicius Tobias and it remains to be seen if their gamble pays off.
