There appeared no way back for the Kylian Mbappe saga to restart this summer. Yet, it has worked its way back into the headlines.
The youngster appeared set to stay in Paris this summer after reaching an agreement with PSG to compromise on his economic bonuses. That way, he would secure a free transfer to Real Madrid next summer.
As revealed by reports earlier today, Los Blancos’ idea of signing Mbappe is still very much on. In fact, they are said to be preparing a €120 million move to the youngster immediately.
Now, according to reports from AS, Mbappe himself is waiting for Real Madrid to send the offer to PSG.
Fayza Lamari, Mbappe’s mother, is also his agent and is in charge of handling the offers he has on his table.
Real Madrid have thus expected a call from the player’s mother for a while now over a move to Spain.
Los Blancos are aware that Mbappe’s transfer is impossible without the green light from Lamari. They are patiently waiting for the go signal and will launch the bid immediately upon receiving it.
Deadline day drama again
There is not long left before the summer transfer window closes. However, Mbappe’s saga has historically dragged on until the very last seconds of the window.
This summer, Real Madrid intentionally delayed the process in the hope of pushing PSG to accept a low bid. The Parisiens demanded in excess of €200 million, but Los Blancos refuse to shell out such an amount for a player in the final season of his contract.
Resurfacing reports of an offer signal that this was the plan all along. Will the Merengues make their final signing of the season in the coming days? Only time will tell.
Real Madrid very happy with future star Endrick, eagerly awaiting his arrival in 2024 – Romano
Real Madrid’s attacking unit has been crippled by the loss of Karim Benzema earlier in the summer, which was followed by the loss of Vinicius Jr due to injury.
Although Vinicius has returned, there is much left to be desired from the Madrid frontline as we progress through to the season.
Real Madrid, though, are waiting on the arrival of Endrick. The young Brazilian is set to join the Real Madrid squad in the summer of 2024 when he turns 18.
Real Madrid impressed by Endrick
Endrick has already started his preparation for his pending move to Santiago Bernabeu, having performed exceptionally well in his native Brazil this year.
The youngster is constantly working on his game, in order to further improve himself as an attacker. It has left Real Madrid quite happy and eager for his arrival, reports Fabrizio Romano.
The journalist claims that Real Madrid have been keeping close tabs on everything Endrick has been doing, on and off the pitch, at Palmeiras.
And they have received very good reports on the 17-year-old, with the club impressed by how he is putting efforts to improve himself both performance-wise and in other facets.
Despite there being some question marks over his performances, the teenage forward is starting to showcase his potential, having scored five goals in five starts for Palmeiras.
Endrick also learning new languages
Endrick is not only just working on his performance. In fact, the Brazilian is also learning other languages in order to quickly settle into life in Spain.
The youngster can speak Portuguese, but he may have to master Spanish during his time at Santiago Bernabeu.
As mentioned earlier, Endrick can already speak Portuguese, which should go a long way in helping him team up with fellow Brazilians Vinicius Jr and Rodrygo.
Even Eder Militao can speak Portuguese, which should make it easier for Endrick to adapt to life in Spain, at least for the next year or so.
