There has been a lot of movement with regard to Kylian Mbappe and his future over the past couple of days as it emerged that he has informed PSG about his decision to leave in the summer.

Mbappe’s contract with PSG expires at the end of the season and an exit has been touted for some time now. But it was confirmed earlier this week, with the forward informing PSG president Nasser Al-Khelaifi of his decision.

As soon as the news emerged, talks of a move to Real Madrid in the summer picked up momentum like crazy. And even though there have been links to the Premier League, as things stand, Mbappe appears to be on his way to the Santiago Bernabeu.

Florentino Perez has already told Real Madrid players about Mbappe

Now, Santi Aouna of Foot Mercato is reporting that Real Madrid president Florentino Perez has already informed the locker room about Kylian Mbappe arriving at the club in the summer.

It must be remembered that Real Madrid midfielder Aurelien Tchouameni tweeted a popcorn emoji after news of Mbappe’s departure became public, implying that he couldn’t wait to see what would happen next.

Now, Santi Aouna is claiming that Perez has already announced the 2018 FIFA World Cup winner’s arrival next season to a number of players in the Merengues dressing room.

Final details being worked on

As reported earlier today, Mbappe’s mother, Fayza Lamari, and Real Madrid CEO Jose Angel Sanchez are working out the final details of the French superstar’s contract before a total agreement is reached.

Furthermore, it is being suggested that the 25-year-old attacker will likely be given the #10 jersey at Real Madrid, currently held by Luka Modric, whose contract expires at the end of the season.

Real Madrid are eager to enhance their options in central defense after deciding to not sign any defenders in the recent January transfer window.

Several players are on the club’s radar, with Lille’s promising center-back Leny Yoro most notably high on the club’s wishlist.

However, the Merengues are not turning a blind eye to their homegrown academy gems, as Rafa Marin is making a strong case for himself to join the first team dynamics next summer.

Rafa Marin strengthens his case

The 21-year-old is presently on loan at Alaves and is showcasing solid performances in the heart of defense, with Real Madrid reported to count on him next season.

Now, AS have reported that the reason for the club’s trust in Marin is his upsurge in performances at Alaves. And if Nacho Fernandez leaves, Marin will serve as the fourth central defender in the squad.

A testament to his worth to Alaves is the fact that Marin has not been benched since mid-November, demonstrating his importance in coach Luis Garcia Plaza’s defense.

With 2,282 total minutes played, he ranks as the fourth-highest on the team with the most minutes.

Against Atletico Madrid recently, Rafa Marin enjoyed a stellar outing. In addition to making 15 recoveries and 9 interceptions, he took part in 24 defensive actions. Along with winning two ground and four air duels, he only committed one foul.

An important summer for Marin

Not only is Rafa Marín returning to Real Madrid, but he is also going to represent Spain in the Olympics in Paris.

Marin was included in five of the six matches during the Euro Under-21 qualifiers because coach Santi Denia of Spain’s under-21 team greatly values his presence and height (1.91 meters).

Marin has a bright future ahead of him if all goes according to plan. His season with Alaves is sure to serve as a stepping stone for his integration into the Real Madrid first team.
