Real Madrid are all but certain to sign Kylian Mbappe from PSG in the summer, with the 25-year-old set to arrive on a free transfer.

Reports suggest that the announcement of the transfer is only a matter of time and that his mother and agent, Fayza Lamari, is already house-hunting in Madrid.

Mbappe’s addition will take this Real Madrid squad to another level, but it appears that the Frenchman does not wish to come alone from PSG in the summer.

Mbappe wants Real Madrid to sign Achraf Hakimi

As per El Chiringuito TV, Mbappe has asked Real Madrid to make an effort to sign his PSG teammate Achraf Hakimi as well.

Hakimi is no stranger to Real Madrid, with the Moroccan right-back having come through the ranks at the Spanish capital club’s academy and even winning the UEFA Champions League with the team during the 2017/18 season.

After two seasons on loan at Borussia Dortmund, Hakimi was sold to Inter Milan, from where he made his way to PSG and has thrived there.

During his time in Paris, Hakimi has forged a close bond with Mbappe, and it appears that the latter is eager to continue their partnership, having asked Real Madrid to look into the possibility of signing him.

Real Madrid have Hakimi on their radar

It must be noted that Real Madrid have Hakimi on their radar as a reinforcement for the right-back position.

However, any move for him is being planned for 2026, when his contract with PSG expires, with the idea being that Dani Carvajal can continue to be the first-choice right-back for a couple more years.

Hakimi, for his part, would also be open to a return to the Santiago Bernabeu. However, it is unclear whether he would be willing to wait until 2026.

    As for this decision, to take Hakimi along with Mbaape that means Hakimi is going to be second right back for Real Madrid,starting from the bench because Cavarjal is there already

Barcelona find legal precedent to replay El Clasico after ‘ghost goal’ controversy

Barcelona’s recent defeat to Real Madrid in El Clasico appears to have caused calamity inside the Catalan camp.

The defeat has effectively ruled Barça out of the title race while further diminishing the chances of Xavi staying at Camp Nou.

Amid all this, Barcelona president Joan Laporta appears to be having a hard swallowing the result and has gone on a rampage against the use of VAR, which notably annulled a goal from Lamine Yamal after it was cleared from behind the line by Andriy Lunin.

A day after the result, Laporta even warned that Barcelona might seek legal measures to try and replay El Clasico if they find any evidence of wrongdoings. And that statement could now soon turn into reality.

Barcelona consider legal measures

According to Cadena SER, Barcelona are considering legal action under the guidance of none other than Laporta to force a replay.

Their inspiration? An incident earlier this year in the Belgian League, where a VAR error led to the permission for a replay of an Anderlecht vs Genk match, although the decision was later annulled by the Court of Arbitration for Sports (CAS).

CAS is the apex body for all things related to sports. And although the entity was involved in annulling the replay between Genk and Anderlecht, Barcelona are hopeful they would intervene in this matter.

The Catalans are aware that local bodies such as RFEF and CTA might not cooperate with Barcelona, knowing the image and prestige of Spanish football could be at stake.

As such, Barça are hopeful of intervention from CAS. They want the apex court to look into the matter and stage a replay of the Clasico.

Barca’s threats of legal action, including potentially involving the CAS, seem like a desperate attempt to try and remain in the title race – the only avenue for silverware left for the Catalans this season.
