A lot has been said about Kylian Mbappe’s future in the past and if a recent report from journalist Carlos Carpio (h/t Madrid Xtra) is to be believed, then the World Cup winning Frenchman is still attracted to play for Real Madrid.

Mbappe, 24, is arguably Madrid’s biggest transfer target, but the operation is set to cost the team more than the actual briefing.

Hence, Carpio quotes that if the Frenchman does, in fact, want to don the royal white, then he must lower his financial demands and make himself available in the future for the team. Once that is done, team president Florentino Perez just cannot say no to a player like him.

The ongoing issue at Madrid is pretty evident, to say the least. Club captain Karim Benzema is approaching his wee years and with each passing month, the star forward is getting more vulnerable to injuries.

So to avoid future mishaps, the team from the capital city is hunting for a replacement and for that matter, not only Mbappe but even the likes of Erling Haaland of Manchester City and Tottenham Hotspur’s Harry Kane have been linked.

There are claims (Todofichajes) that Madrid have already established contacts with Kane’s representative and given that his ongoing deal with the London-based team runs until 2024, the valuation can go up to €100 million.

As far as Mbappe is concerned, he is reportedly not happy at Paris Saint-Germain and is of the idea that he has now complied with all the conditions that were put forward during his previous extension.

In any way, signing Mbappe isn’t going to be a cakewalk, to say the very least. It’s not that Madrid will have to fend off other suitors but it is just that the price of the entire business might defy all odds.

Anastasia Tamazova, the wife of Real Madrid goalkeeper Andriy Lunin, has shared insights about her life with the footballer. 

In this conversation, she opened up about their experiences living in Spain and her husband’s potential future moves.

Anastasia expressed her deep affection for Spain, mentioning how welcomed and comfortable both she and Lunin feel in the country. 

She emphasised their love for the place, but also made it clear that if Lunin needs to move to another country for his career, she will fully support him and follow him wherever he needs to go.

“We love Spain very much, the people here are very friendly and we feel very welcomed and comfortable,” said Tamazova as quoted by Mundo Deportivo.

“But if my husband has to leave this country, then of course I will support him and we will go wherever necessary.”

There has been a lot of speculation about Lunin’s future at Real Madrid and recent reports have suggested that the keeper was disappointed when the team’s coach, Carlo Ancelotti, chose not to play him in the Champions League final, even though Lunin had anticipated this decision. 

With the return of Thibaut Courtois, Lunin’s chances of being the main goalkeeper have significantly decreased. 

This situation has led him to consider a possible move this summer, with interest from several big clubs like Atletico Madrid, Manchester United, Arsenal, and Juventus.

It is said that despite the uncertainty, the final decision rests with Lunin. Real Madrid have expressed their desire to keep him and have offered him a contract extension until 2029

Although Lunin seemed ready to sign the new contract, the events surrounding the Champions League final have caused him to reconsider his options. The choice of Courtois over him has planted seeds of doubt about his future with the club.
