As the rage around Kylian Mbappe and his future continues, PSG have shown more signs of the rift widening between the two parties.
PSG and Mbappe have had a major falling out over the past month or so after the Frenchman informed the club of his decision to not extend his contract beyond 2024.
Les Parisiens have since told him that he must leave this summer or renew his contract, neither of which are acceptable options for the forward as he wishes to continue in Paris for one more season before leaving for free.
PSG, Mbappe headed for a bitter divorce
But in order to force him out of the club, PSG left Mbappe out of the squad for their pre-season tour of Asia, leaving him behind in Paris to train with other out-of-favour players.
The Ligue 1 champions have also made it clear that he will not play for the club again unless he renews his contract.
The Parisian giants have now gone ahead and removed the 24-year-old superstar from their new BrilliantCrypto sponsorship poster, as can be seen below.
It is becoming abundantly clear that PSG do not see Mbappe at the club for the upcoming season despite his insistence on not leaving.
Les Parisiens are understood to firmly believe that the forward has an agreement with Real Madrid over a free transfer in 2024 and have thus been forcing him to leave.
PSG even accepted a world-record €300 million bid from Al Hilal for Mbappe, but the World Cup winner refused to hold talks with the Saudi Arabian giants, throwing a wrench in the club’s plans.
Mbappe only wants Real Madrid
By this point, it has been well-established that Mbappe dreams of joining Real Madrid, ideally next summer for free.
But, if he does accept leaving PSG in the current transfer window, it will only be for the Santiago Bernabeu.
Real Madrid, though, are playing it cool and have not made any move to sign the French superstar as of yet, as they believe that the longer they wait, the more the pressure on PSG to sell him for a lower fee.
However, it has been reported earlier today that a transfer might not be much farther away, with a world-record €230 million deal likely to take place soon.
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.
