Incoming PSG boss wants club to sign Real Madrid forward, but player not for sale

As Luis Enrique edges closer towards an agreement with Paris Saint-Germain, the manager has begun setting up a list of demands for the Parisian hierarchy.

Once PSG can finalize the details of Christophe Galtier’s departure and make Enrique’s arrival official in the media, greater clarity will be observed in the club’s transfer market strategy. However, some details have already emerged.

According to SPORT, Enrique has asked the board of his potential new club to acquire the signature of Real Madrid attacking prodigy, Rodrygo.

The former Barcelona boss has been working in Paris for two days to analyse the team’s demands and the situation with Kylian Mbappe’s future up in the air. And one of his first requests from him is that they make a move for Rodrygo.

The report further claims that Enrique, who was also in talks to be appointed by Chelsea, made a similar request to the English side, deeming Rodrygo’s arrival as one of the conditions for him joining the club.

Rodrygo is not for sale was the memo by Real Madrid, who had already declined to enter into negotiations. The player’s deal with the Royal Whites runs out in 2025, but a long-term renewal is already understood to be in place.

After receiving the number 11 jersey number, Rodrygo claimed to be ready to take responsibility and carry the weight the prestigious number brought with it. With Benzema’s departure, it is expected that he will have an even more prominent role up front.

In addition to the player’s desire to stay put at the Merengues, Real Madrid already ruled out the equation of working on transfer business with PSG, a club they have already endured difficulties negotiating.

Despite the interest in signing Kylian Mbappe from PSG, Real Madrid do not consider the prospect of Rodrygo entering the deal, who remains one of the key pillars of Florentino Perez’s plans for the present and the future.

Atletico Madrid CEO lashes out at Real Madrid: “They cheat the competition”

Locking horns in what is invariably perceived as an intense affair, Atletico Madrid and Real Madrid concluded their most recent clash with controversy enshrouding the result.

Diego Simeone’s cavalry came out on top with a 3-1 win, but the reactions by both sides after the game implied a sense of bad blood, which appears to be an ongoing matter.

The Merengues expressed their displeasure with some of the referee’s decisions during their Real Madrid TV broadcast, highlighting the ‘blatant errors’ they felt referee Javier Alberola Rojas and the VAR had committed.

However, in response to the allegations, Atletico Madrid CEO has retaliated with his own accusations, not holding back against Real Madrid.

Gil Marin accuses Madrid of cheating

As per MARCA, Atletico Madrid CEO Miguel Angel Gil Marin believes that the Real Madrid-related media atmosphere is exerting pressure on the referee teams for the upcoming games.

“Real Madrid cheats the competition. They create unbearable pressure on the referees. The arguments they use are funny but very serious and directly affect the competition,” he boldly exclaimed.

Real Madrid pointed out a bucketload of errors made by the referee on Madrid TV, including goals that should not have stood and violations that warranted sending-offs.

Even so, Gil Marin has not taken these assertions lightly and privately mocked the actions of Real Madrid’s claims.

“They are fanatics. They know that if they do not say these types of things, they would quickly lose their jobs,” he said.

Moreover, he alluded to the instance of Jude Bellingham’s tackle on Angel Correa in the dying embers of the game and how the narrative would have been vastly different if the roles were reversed.

“We wouldn’t be talking about anything else [had that happened],” he concluded.
