Kylian Mbappe’s exit from PSG this time around appears written in stone. The player is firm about his decision to leave for new pastures after spending seven years at the French capital club.

While his departure is clear, there has been no official communication as to his next destination.

Real Madrid are the overwhelming favourites to sign him, with La Liga president Javier Tebas even admitting that the player has likely signed an agreement with the club.

Mbappe’s agent in Madrid

Now, according to reports from Rodra P, Mbappe’s mother and agent, Fayza Lamari, has been in Madrid for a few days now. Contractual talks and negotiations aside, she is rigorously searching for a house in Madrid that Mbappe will utilise as his base.

Needless to say, Lamari’s personal intervention and search for real estate is perhaps the biggest confirmation of Mbappe’s arrival in Madrid this summer.

Two options stand out for the Frenchman – La Moraleja and La Finca. The former is just a stone’s throw away from Valdebebas as currently houses the likes of Vinicius Jr.

While La Moraleja has the preference of Mbappe’s entourage, Thibaut Courtois’ locality La Finca is also an option as it is known for its security.

PSG owner aware

Earlier this week, Mbappe dined with the Emir of Qatar and the President of France in an event at the Elysèe.

The Emir, who is also the owner of PSG, was caught on camera wishing the youngster the best of luck as he moves on to a new chapter in his career.

With Mbappe’s current club owner himself sold on the idea of his departure, it is only a matter of time before official developments occur.

The player did indeed deny a complete agreement with any club when quizzed on the night, but it could well be a ploy to keep the information low-key until the right moment arrives.

Real Madrid are eager to enhance their options in central defense after deciding to not sign any defenders in the recent January transfer window.

Several players are on the club’s radar, with Lille’s promising center-back Leny Yoro most notably high on the club’s wishlist.

However, the Merengues are not turning a blind eye to their homegrown academy gems, as Rafa Marin is making a strong case for himself to join the first team dynamics next summer.

Rafa Marin strengthens his case

The 21-year-old is presently on loan at Alaves and is showcasing solid performances in the heart of defense, with Real Madrid reported to count on him next season.

Now, AS have reported that the reason for the club’s trust in Marin is his upsurge in performances at Alaves. And if Nacho Fernandez leaves, Marin will serve as the fourth central defender in the squad.

A testament to his worth to Alaves is the fact that Marin has not been benched since mid-November, demonstrating his importance in coach Luis Garcia Plaza’s defense.

With 2,282 total minutes played, he ranks as the fourth-highest on the team with the most minutes.

Against Atletico Madrid recently, Rafa Marin enjoyed a stellar outing. In addition to making 15 recoveries and 9 interceptions, he took part in 24 defensive actions. Along with winning two ground and four air duels, he only committed one foul.

An important summer for Marin

Not only is Rafa Marín returning to Real Madrid, but he is also going to represent Spain in the Olympics in Paris.

Marin was included in five of the six matches during the Euro Under-21 qualifiers because coach Santi Denia of Spain’s under-21 team greatly values his presence and height (1.91 meters).

Marin has a bright future ahead of him if all goes according to plan. His season with Alaves is sure to serve as a stepping stone for his integration into the Real Madrid first team.
