Kylian Mbappe was one of the players involved in a huge transfer saga in the summer, with a potential move to Real Madrid looking inevitable. In the end, though, he ended up staying at Paris Saint-Germain, putting pen to the biggest contract in the history of the sport.

The French forward was blessed with a lot of additional benefits, too, including transfer power. He wanted the French club to sign big names in the summer that would heavily help with their sports project.

According to a report relayed by SPORT, Mbappe had tried to use his power this summer in the hopes of signing Aurelien Tchouameni in the summer.

He was, however, informed, that Real Madrid had already signed the player.

This is not the first time this happened to PSG and Mbappe, with the same report claiming that the World Cup winner tried to convince Frenkie de Jong to snub Barcelona in favour of the French capital.

The player was surprised to see players prioritising moves to better sports projects over PSG’s money-heavy transfer moves.

Mbappe had also tried to convince Robert Lewandowski to sign for PSG over Barcelona, but failed on that front, too.

Tchouameni is an integral part of Real Madrid’s team, replacing Casemiro at defensive midfield. He has also been one of the best midfielders through the 2022 World Cup, with France cruising to the Round of 16 with him and Adrien Rabiot at the helm.

Real Madrid have been greeted with some positive news on the injury front as goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois is expected to be fit and ready for the upcoming La Liga clash against Real Valladolid.

The 30-year-old custodian had flown away for national team duty with Belgium and played the full game against Sweden last week. However, the Real Madrid ace was sent back to the club over the weekend due to a minor adductor strain.

This raised concerns over the former Chelsea star’s condition, especially with a busy period lying ahead for the Merengues.

However, Mario Cortegana of The Athletic has eased any nerves surrounding his situation, reporting that Courtois was subjected to tests upon returning to Spain and there is no reason for worry.

The report states that Real Madrid expect their No. 1 to be fit and available for their next game which will be against Real Valladolid in La Liga on April 2, Sunday.

It is further stated that the knock Courtois sustained was not a new one and that the 30-year-old had felt discomfort in the same area during Los Blancos’ UEFA Champions League Round of 16 second-leg tie against Liverpool at the Santiago Bernabeu earlier this month.

Courtois has featured 32 times across all competitions this term, having missed a few matches due to fitness issues. He has managed just ten clean sheets and will be hoping to add to that against Valladolid, now that is reportedly fit to feature at the weekend.

In another boost, reports earlier today indicated that Toni Kroos does not have any injury after concerns were raised due to the midfielder doing individual training sessions over the past week.
