Despite the transfer window entering its closing stages, the links between Kylian Mbappe and Real Madrid have yet to be extinguished.
Mbappe has regained PSG’s trust, earning the opportunity to continue another season without extending his contract beyond 2024.
But there is also the slight possibility that he will end up donning the Royal Whites jersey this summer after PSG reportedly reduced his asking price.
Now, adding fuel to the fire, Christian Karembeu, the former French player for Real Madrid, expressed his desire to see Mbappe end up joining the Spanish capital club.
Karembeu wishes to see Mbappe at Madrid
When asked about the rumours that the PSG forward could make an early switch to Real Madrid Karembeu was eager to see the move materialize, replying (h/t Mundo Deportivo):
“That’s a question for Florentino Pérez, but hopefully he can get here and win trophies with Real Madrid.”
Karembeu has plied his trade with Los Blancos in the past for three years between 1997 and 2000 and thus understands the responsibility one carries with the Madrid badge.
He claimed the team Ancelotti is building is “a great team”, as he continues to monitor his former club observantly.
“The team has started with three victories, and that is very important for the confidence of the group,” added the Frenchman.
Although the Merengues have suffered some big injuries, the team is heading in the right direction and has so far looked dominant with successive victories in La Liga.
Finally, the World Cup winner avoided acknowledging the controversy between Luis Rubiales and Jenni Hermoso, stating: “It is a national issue, Spain has to decide and we have to wait for the new news.”
Real Madrid very happy with future star Endrick, eagerly awaiting his arrival in 2024 – Romano
Real Madrid’s attacking unit has been crippled by the loss of Karim Benzema earlier in the summer, which was followed by the loss of Vinicius Jr due to injury.
Although Vinicius has returned, there is much left to be desired from the Madrid frontline as we progress through to the season.
Real Madrid, though, are waiting on the arrival of Endrick. The young Brazilian is set to join the Real Madrid squad in the summer of 2024 when he turns 18.
Real Madrid impressed by Endrick
Endrick has already started his preparation for his pending move to Santiago Bernabeu, having performed exceptionally well in his native Brazil this year.
The youngster is constantly working on his game, in order to further improve himself as an attacker. It has left Real Madrid quite happy and eager for his arrival, reports Fabrizio Romano.
The journalist claims that Real Madrid have been keeping close tabs on everything Endrick has been doing, on and off the pitch, at Palmeiras.
And they have received very good reports on the 17-year-old, with the club impressed by how he is putting efforts to improve himself both performance-wise and in other facets.
Despite there being some question marks over his performances, the teenage forward is starting to showcase his potential, having scored five goals in five starts for Palmeiras.
Endrick also learning new languages
Endrick is not only just working on his performance. In fact, the Brazilian is also learning other languages in order to quickly settle into life in Spain.
The youngster can speak Portuguese, but he may have to master Spanish during his time at Santiago Bernabeu.
As mentioned earlier, Endrick can already speak Portuguese, which should go a long way in helping him team up with fellow Brazilians Vinicius Jr and Rodrygo.
Even Eder Militao can speak Portuguese, which should make it easier for Endrick to adapt to life in Spain, at least for the next year or so.
