Kylian Mbappe’s transfer to Real Madrid has been a major talking point over the past couple of months, with the Merengues seeming set to acquire the Frenchman from Paris Saint-Germain.

However, there has been an unexpected turn, and the 23-year-old is set to snub Madrid and sign a new bumper deal with PSG.

The ever-reliable transfer journalist Fabrizio has confirmed that Mbappe has already informed Real Madrid president Florentino Perez of his decision, which, his representatives claim has been the toughest decision of his life.

Despite a league-winning season and potential Champions League glory for Los Blancos, they are set to miss out on Mbappe again.

This puts a major spanner in the works for their transfer plans. Perhaps, the motivation to help end the Parisian’s European title drought, a very lucrative financial deal, and a starring role in their project has convinced Mbappe to stay.

Mbappe has had a spectacular season in Ligue One once again, as PSG claimed the title and he was named player of the season.

The French government also reportedly tried to convince the 23-year-old to continue in France as the flag bearer of French football.

There is a high chance that this played a major role in his decision, and maybe also the motivation to continue alongside Lionel Messi and Neymar in one of the most fearsome attacking trios in world football.

The saga has finally come to an end. A gut-punch for Madrid but a huge statement of intent from PSG.

Real Madrid will be aiming to continue their recent winning streak when they take on third-placed Real Sociedad in La Liga on Sunday.

Los Blancos have picked up three wins in three games against Villarreal, Athletic Club and Atletico Madrid. Given that Barcelona already have a lead at the top of the table, Carlo Ancelotti’s men cannot afford any slip-up against Sociedad tomorrow.

Ahead of the much-anticipated contest at the Santiago Bernabeu, manager Ancelotti has announced the Real Madrid squad list for the game.

Dani Carvajal, who trained normally today, is still not back on the roster, with Ancelotti already admitting that the Spaniard could return against Valencia next week.

Meanwhile, David Alaba, Aurelien Tchouameni and Lucas Vazquez also remain unavailable while Ferland Mendy misses out after picking up a hamstring injury against Atletico Madrid.

Rodrygo Goes, who also sustained a knock in the game against Atletico, is fully fit and on the squad list for the Real Sociedad encounter. Eden Hazard is also back after missing the last two matches with an injury.

Castilla midfielder Mario Martin, who made his senior debut against the Rojiblancos is retained on the list by Ancelotti.
