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 are set to play hosts to Sevilla this evening, in what could prove to be a critical match in the context of the title race.

Although Los Blancos hold a formidable lead at the top of the table, the club are coming on the back of a disappointing result against Rayo Vallecano.

Dropping more points against Sevilla tonight could prove to be costly, especially with Barcelona and Girona breathing down their necks.

Potential Real Madrid lineup vs Sevilla

As Real Madrid approach this crucial game, coach Carlo Ancelotti has to make several arrangements, especially with so many players ruled out either due to injury or suspension.

Defence

Starting from the goalkeeper position, Thibaut Courtois remains out, which means Andriy Lunin should continue in between the sticks, ahead of the unhappy Kepa Arrizabalaga.

In the right-back position, Ancelotti is likely to opt for Lucas Vazquez, as Dani Carvajal is suspended after picking up two yellow cards in the last game.

On a bright note, though, Antonio Rudiger is back and should return to central defence. He will be accompanied by Nacho Fernandez at the heart of Real Madrid’s four-man backline.

Elsewhere in defence, Ferland Mendy should continue to start ahead of Fran Garcia in the left-back position.

Midfield

Moving into midfield, Eduardo Camavinga has been ruled out due to suspension. However, Ancelotti does have a myriad of options in the middle of the park.

Aurelien Tchouameni should continue to operate in the number six position, just behind the two interior midfielders Toni Kroos and Federico Valverde.

Luka Modric is an option on the bench, should Ancelotti require more experience in the middle.

Attack

As for the attack, the Real Madrid frontline should be led by Brahim Diaz once again, even though he faces fierce competition from Joselu.

Vinicius Junior and Rodrygo, on the other hand, are guaranteed choices in the wide attacking spaces, though Ancelotti does have Arda Guler and Alvaro Rodriguez as potential alternatives.
