According to journalist Ramon Alvarez de Mon, Kylian Mbappe has already been signed by Real Madrid and during the paperwork, it was established that the Frenchman would not join the national during the Paris Olympics.

The reporter adds that although the attacker wanted to be a part of that squad, he understood Real Madrid’s request quite perfectly.

Mbappe’s move to Real Madrid is nothing but a matter of official announcement as even Paris Saint-Germain manager, Luis Enrique, has admitted that the French superstar will not be at the club.

However, one thing that continues to deter the matter is Mbappe’s participation in the upcoming Paris Olympics.

Being the host nation, France wants the striker to be one of their flag-bearers, but Madrid are against the idea.

So what next for Mbappe?

As reported before, Real Madrid’s reluctance to let Mbappe go for the Games will now become an interest of national concern. For that matter, French President Emmanuel Macron might intervene in the case.

France want to field the strongest lineup possible for the summer Games for that, Mabppe, among two other senior players, are expected to be in their plans.

So far, nothing is official and everything is in the air. However, what remains true is Mbappe’s future, which lies in Madrid and not Paris. If he signs for Madrid before the Games, the Los Blancos will have the final say about his participation.

What’s the latest about his future?

Recently, Mbappe decided to speak in public while officially announcing that he would talk about his future when the time is right.

“I have nothing to announce. The day I have something to say, I will say it, but until then there is nothing to say,” Mbappe said at the press conference.

“I have never hidden. The day I have to announce something I will do it, I have never been afraid, I will come and say it. It won’t be anything serious, it’s just that I don’t have anything important to announce now, I’m sorry to disappoint you,” he added.

At present, the player is focused on his duty national duty, but if what Alvarez is reporting is true, we might get the official announcement soon.

Luka Modric is set to stay with Real Madrid for another season, meaning he will have played more seasons with Vinicius Jr. (7) than he did with Cristiano Ronaldo (6). 

Feeling old yet? We thought so too!

Modric joined Real Madrid in the summer of 2012 after four seasons with Tottenham Hotspur. On the other hand, Vinicius Jr. joined Real Madrid in 2018. 

By the end of the 2023/24 season, Modric and Vinicius will have spent six seasons together. This is the same number of seasons Modric played with Cristiano Ronaldo, who was at Madrid from 2009 to 2018. 

However, with Modric set to stay for another season, he will surpass that, playing more seasons with Vinicius than with Ronaldo, the club’s all-time top scorer.

A new contract for Modric

It is important to note that Real Madrid and Modric have reached an agreement in principle for his contract renewal for another year.

At 38, Modric’s contract was set to expire at the end of the current season. For a while, it seemed the Croatian star might leave Santiago Bernabeu this summer. 

However, things have changed recently, and Real Madrid have decided to offer him a new contract. 

Interestingly, Real Madrid have also offered a renewal to Toni Kroos with club president Florentino Perez personally involved in the negotiations.

Modric and Kroos will continue

Reports suggest that Modric has agreed to the new proposal, with an agreement in principle now in place. It is also expected that Kroos will accept his offer, meaning Real Madrid will keep both veteran players for another season.

The Croatian was reportedly willing to accept a pay cut and a reduced role in the team to continue playing for Real Madrid. This flexibility may have sped up the agreement process.

His willingness to adapt to a reduced role and accept a pay cut has likely influenced the club’s decision to renew his contract for one more year.
