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.

Real Madrid have finally received some good news as MARCA confirms that Nacho has finally made his decision about his future, and is set to continue at the club for the foreseeable future.

His contract expires in the summer, and Real Madrid had tabled an extension for the player, which was not accepted by the Spaniard at the time. Now, however, he has decided to reject offers from Juventus, Inter Milan, Chelsea, Inter Milan, and AC Milan.

Nacho will sign a one year extension, with the option to extend for another year if both parties reach an agreement.

His continuity also means that he will be the new club captain for the 2023/24 season, since Karim Benzema is leaving the club on a free transfer in the summer. Luka Modric will be second captain, followed by Daniel Carvajal and Toni Kroos.

Carlo Ancelotti has also spoken to the player, confirming that they trust him for next season in the team, which has gone a long way in helping convince the player.

The Italian gaffer also spoke about the Spanish defender’s contract situation after the game against Athletic Club yesterday, saying:

“Asensio, Nacho and Ceballos? We have explained them their roles. The club have offered them renewals. Asensio has preferred to leave, Ceballos and Nacho are still thinking about it.” 

While a centre-back by trade, Nacho has played across the defence for Madrid continuously, including putting shifts at left-back, right-back, and even centre-back.

His departure would have probably pushed Madrid to sign another defender, especially since they are considering selling Ferland Mendy if a good offer arrives.

Regardless of that, though, Madrid are moving to sign Alphonso Davies, and have already made initial contacts with the player. Bayern Munich have not rejected their advances.

Further, the los blancos management have already met with Davies’ entourage twice, cementing their interest in the Canadian ace.
