Real Madrid were dealt with a massive blow in the summer when Kylian Mbappe rejected a move to Santiago Bernabeu in favour of a prolonged stay at Paris Saint-Germain. The forward even ended up signing a bumper contract extension at PSG that granted him additional powers at the club.

However, a few months into the new season, it appears the relationship between PSG and Mbappe has completely fallen apart. This has been reported by Mario Cortegana of MARCA, who suggests the Frenchman now wants to depart Parc des Princes in the upcoming January transfer window.

The Spanish journalist goes on to claim that the former AS Monaco starlet favours a move to Real Madrid, just months after he refused to move to Santiago Bernabeu.

PSG, though, have other ideas and only want to sell him to Liverpool, who are one of the clubs in contention to sign the Frenchman. However, with Mbappe keen on joining Real Madrid, we could potentially witness yet another elongated transfer saga.

Mbappe’s new season at PSG has seen him score 11 goals in 12 competitive matches so far. The forward has indeed managed to enhance his attacking partnership with Lionel Messi and Neymar, with the three attacking playing a key role in PSG’s success so far this season.

Mbappe’s potential exit could serve as a major blow for Les Parisiens, who are also facing the risk of losing Messi in 2023. The Argentine has indeed been linked with a potential return to Camp Nou next year.

As for Real Madrid, they could be in for an interesting transfer window in January. Even though the club may have the option to go after Mbappe once again, it is worth noting that the relationship between the two parties had taken a hit during the summer when the player rejected the opportunity to move to the Bernabeu.

But most importantly, Real Madrid are one of few clubs who have the luxury to go after Erling Haaland in 2024. The Norwegian international has proven to be an instant hit in the Premier League and is arguably a more tactically sound replacement for Karim Benzema.

Hence, Los Blancos may have a decision to make as they look to choose between two of the rising stars of world football, neither of who can co-exist with the other.

Real Madrid forward Rodrygo, who is currently training with the Brazilian national team for the Copa America in the United States, expressed his excitement about the prospect of playing with Kylian Mbappe. 

Rodrygo emphasised that it would always be a pleasure to team up with Mbappe, whom he considers one of the best players in the world.

Rodrygo mentioned that it would be a great honour for him to play alongside the future Real Madrid forward. 

“For me, it’s a pleasure to play with Mbappe, I always made it very clear. He’s going to help our team a lot, he’s going to help make it even stronger than it already is,” said the forward as quoted by Mundo Deportivo.

What about Rodrygo’s place in playing XI

Mbappe and Rodrygo are set to join forces at Real Madrid starting next season. Interestingly, the Frenchman’s arrival could potentially impact Rodrygo’s playing time. 

Despite the competition, though, the forward remains optimistic and prefers to focus on his current role with the Brazilian national team rather than speculate about his future at the club.

“It is always a pleasure, but now is not the time to divert the focus, I want to be focused on the national team. 

“Mbappe is also playing the (European) championship with his national team and I want to be focused here.

“But always making it clear that it is a pleasure and a dream to play with one of the best in the world,” he added.

Rodrygo is focused on Copa America

As Rodrygo prepares for his first Copa America with Brazil, he aims to demonstrate the same high level of performance that he has consistently shown with Real Madrid in recent years. 

He recalled a memorable moment from the 2021/22 Champions League semifinal against Manchester City. 

In that match, Rodrygo scored two last-minute goals that forced extra time, ultimately securing Real Madrid’s place in the final, where they defeated Liverpool.

Rodrygo hopes to replicate such extraordinary performances with the Brazilian national team during the Copa America. 

His main goal with the national team is to have impactful moments that contribute to the team’s success, similar to his crucial role in the Champions League semifinal.
