Despite signing a new contract with Paris Saint-Germain in the summer, Kylian Mbappe has once again become the hot topic in the transfer market, following fresh reports suggesting that he is unhappy with life at PSG.

The forward is reportedly keen on sealing a move away from Paris in January following disagreements over the board for several reasons, including the club’s inability to sign a new centre-forward in the summer.

Mbappe also has a dysfunctional relationship with one of the club’s star players in Neymar. This has played a key role in convincing the attacker to consider elsewhere, with Real Madrid appearing to be his preferred option.

There have been reports of a smear campaign launched by PSG in 2019 against Mbappe, which, if proven, could give the player the ground to terminate his contract.

However, according to a report from L’Equipe, it appears Mbappe is planning to sort out his issue by buying himself out of his contract, as he considers the club to be impossible to trust again.

Although terminating the contract without mutual agreements often requires a large sum of money and an elongated legal battle, Mbappe believes he can break his PSG contract and make himself available as a free agent ahead of the upcoming January transfer window.

It could pave the way for Real Madrid to sign the Frenchman after the turn of the year, although the reigning European champions have built some resentment over Mbappe following his decision to remain at PSG in the summer.

They are also favouring a move for Erling Haaland, as they believe the Norweigian could be a more tactically compatible option.

Nevertheless, the possibility of signing Mbappe could be too tempting for a club like Real Madrid, who would ideally not let go of the opportunity to sign one of the best players in world football on a free transfer, if he does indeed buy himself out of his PSG contract.

    I need to see Kylian Mbappé win Ballon d’Or 1, 2, 3, etc, before he will have locus standi to compare himself with Lionel Messi. As at now what he has won is PRIDE WHICH WILL DESTROY HIM. His character is zero, no humility and therefore the nearest he will come runner up in Ballon d’Or.

Federico Valverde, the dynamic midfielder for Real Madrid, is once again on the cusp of adapting to a new role under the guidance of coach Carlo Ancelotti, reports Mario Calderon for Mundo Deportivo

Valverde’s remarkable versatility has been a key asset for Real Madrid, allowing him to excel in various positions on the field. This adaptability has been crucial for the team, and it seems another transformation is on the horizon for the 25-year-old Uruguayan.

The team chances and so does Valverde

His potential shift in role comes amid changes within the team, notably the reassignment of the number ‘8’ shirt to Toni Kroos. 

The German midfielder’s responsibility for constructing the game will likely be shared among several players to ensure a seamless transition.

Here, Valverde’s ability to quickly grasp new concepts will be a significant advantage for both him and Ancelotti. Even during the current period, with many players still absent, Ancelotti is already strategizing on how to best integrate everyone into the team dynamics without compromising performance.

Marcelo Bielsa must be credited

Valverde’s recent experiences with the Uruguayan national team in the Copa America under coach Marcelo Bielsa have further honed his skills. 

Bielsa entrusted Valverde with the captain’s armband and deployed him in a deeper role, where he was responsible for initiating plays from the back alongside his teammate, PSG’s young pivot, Manuel Ugarte. 

This experience has enriched Valverde’s understanding of the game, adding another layer to his already impressive skill set.

As the new season approaches, Valverde will need to re-establish himself in whatever role Ancelotti deems fit—be it as a winger, a pivot, or even a full-back, a position he has previously played under former coach Zinedine Zidane. 

Regardless of where he is positioned, Valverde’s importance to the team is undeniable. His versatility, coupled with his ability to adapt quickly, makes him a pivotal player for Real Madrid’s upcoming campaign.
