Paris-Saint Germain’s elimination from the UEFA Champions League in the Round of 16 stage once again flared up transfer talks involving all their superstar forwards. Needless to say, Kylian Mbappe’s move to Real Madrid was one of the most widely speculated topics.

The French forward has publicly admitted to being a Real Madrid fan on multiple occasions and has made his dream of eventually signing for the club well-known.

However, he recently ruled out the possibility of it happening in the coming transfer window in an interview as revealed by GOAL.

“The next step? Winning the Champions League. I have already made a final, semi-final, quarter-final, and round of 16. I have done everything but win. That’s all I need. Where do I want to do it? In Paris. I’m a Parisian and under contract. So it’s PSG.”

Los Blancos have spent many a window in the pursuit of the French superstar but his outright rejection of their offer last summer was the final cog.

Real Madrid dropped their interest in him after he renewed his contract in Paris and insist that any interest should come from the player’s side.

Real Madrid will instead go for the signing of Jude Bellingham in the summer, and with only two sides left in the race, the chances are high. Any surplus funds will be used to sign reinforcements for positions of priority like the left-back and centre-forward.

The Frenchman has scored 19 goals and provided three assists in 26 Ligue 1 appearances this season and has been one of Christophe Galtier’s MVPs.

Though Lionel Messi and Neymar could move away from Parc des Princes in June, the youngster wishes to stay and take the club to new heights, at least for the next season.

Mbappe’s contract with PSG runs until the summer of 2024, and it seems clear that there will be no effort from Real Madrid to sign him until then.

Real Madrid players will be pumped up as they take on Manchester City on Wednesday, in the second leg of the UEFA Champions League quarterfinals.

Real Madrid face a daunting task of beating Man City at the Etihad, after drawing 3-3 in the first leg. It must be noted that Los Blancos do not have a good record against Man City, losing twice in their last three meetings.

Vinicius Jr. pumped to defeat Man City

Despite the might of the opposition, confidence and optimism remain high in the Real Madrid camp, with Vinicius Jr., in particular, determined to defeat Man City, reports MARCA.

The Brazilian considers Man City as their main rival, especially given the way Real Madrid have performed against the English champions in recent years.

In the last three meetings between these two sides, Man City have won twice in 2020 and 2023, while Real Madrid secured a majestic victory in 2022.

Man City certainly have the home advantage heading into this fixture, but their might could be tested against a Real Madrid side keen on proving a point.

Vinicius takes Barça win as a reference

Vinicius Jr.’s hopes of defeating Man City and reaching the semifinal stage have been reinforced by the belief that the club can turn things around, just as they did against Barcelona last season.

Back in April 2023, Real Madrid and Barcelona locked horns in the semifinal of the Copa Del Rey. Real Madrid succumbed to a 0-1 defeat in the first leg and required a turnaround in the second leg at Camp Nou.

Sure enough, Real Madrid players stepped up to the plate and secured a majestic 4-0 victory to secure a place in the Copa Del Rey final. Vinicius and Karim Benzema, in particular, were the star performers for Los Blancos.

Although one would expect Man City to offer a much tougher fight, Vinicius remains confident of the club’s ability to stage a turnaround, as the two teams lock horns on Wednesday.
