With Kylian Mbappe entering the final year of his contract at PSG this summer, speculations about a potential move to Real Madrid are once again starting to do the rounds.

The 24-year-old was close to joining Los Blancos last summer on a free transfer but suddenly decided to make a U-turn and sign a new contract with PSG.

The new deal was for two years, until 2024, with an option for an additional twelve months, with the caveat being that the player must also agree to activate that extension clause.

But now, according to AS, Mbappe has no desire to remain at Paris Saint-Germain beyond next year and has already told Real Madrid officials that he wants to join the club in 2024.

The 2018 FIFA World Cup winner has always dreamt of playing for Los Blancos and does not wish to delay it any further.

On top of that, PSG’s failure in the UEFA Champions League is also becoming an issue for the France national team captain, whose dream is to win Europe’s most coveted trophy.

The report states that Mbappe would be open to joining Real Madrid in the upcoming summer itself, although such a move would only be possible if he were to come for free, as Los Blancos do not intend to splash the cash on him.

And with PSG unlikely to give away their superstar just like that, everything points towards Mbappe possibly leaving Parc des Princes for the Santiago Bernabeu in the summer of 2024.

The report states that nothing will change his mind this time around and that the forward has already informed high-level authorities at Real Madrid that he wants to make the jump next year.

Mbappe decided to continue in Paris last year at the insistence of France president Emmanuel Macron. Having done so, the 24-year-old now does not feel obligated to anyone anymore and wishes to follow his dream and sign for Real Madrid.

The former AS Monaco starlet has even scheduled a meeting with PSG in the coming months to inform them of his intention to leave the club. But with the Parisian giants unlikely to sanction an exit this summer, he will have to wait until 2024 before he gets his move.

As for Real Madrid, they are very clear that there will not be any kind of negotiations with PSG for Mbappe and the only way they are going to sign him is if the player becomes free and paves the way for a move.

Real Madrid eye €3.5 million-rated relegated Premier League striker to reinforce attack

Following a difficult season with troubles in La Liga and the Champions League preventing Real Madrid from retaining their crowns, Los Blancos move towards a transformative summer, full of innovations.

Real Madrid managed to clear plenty of unwanted figures at the club, with a huge relief on the wage bill. However, with an array of exits, the squad has contracted and thus replacements are being inquired.

Apart from the high-profile departure of Karim Benzema, fringe players have also bid their farewell.

Among those names is Mariano Diaz, who was Madrid’s backup striker prior to his withdrawal. Several names have been put on the table to fill his absence as the club largely aim to address their lack of depth.

According to Arancha Rodriguez (via RM4Arab), Leeds United striker Rodrigo Moreno is one of the names gaining consensus in the Madrid hierarchy. Moreover, Joselu has also been considered as a viable alternative.

The two favourites to replace Mariano have proven to be important figures for their clubs as both strikers maintain a starting role.

Playing for Espanyol, Joselu ended the La Liga campaign as the third top scorer, only behind Benzema and Lewandowski. Considering Espanyol’s relegation, such a feat looks even more impressive. The Spaniard secured 19 goals in all competitions.

On the other hand, Rodrigo Moreno recorded 16 goals last season across all competitions. Similar to Joselu’s case, the Spanish international also suffered relegation with Leeds, in spite of his good numbers.

With both players offering adequate output in struggling sides, Real Madrid’s interest is practical. Moreover, considering both Espanyol and Leeds were relegated, their asking price will undeniably lower, which enables the Merengues to sign one of the two targets at a more convenient rate.

It is claimed that Rodrigo has a release clause worth €3.5 million which Los Blancos would have to trigger to sign him from Leeds United.

It now remains to be seen whether Carlo Ancelotti & co. go after the former Valencia man or move for Joselu instead.
