Countless negotiations, discussions, and obstacles have stood in the way, prolonging Real Madrid’s efforts to sign Kylian Mabppe, but the saga could be resolved one way or the other in the coming weeks.

Florentino Perez’s wait might not be in vain after all, as according to Ramón Álvarez de Mon, in order for Mbappé to join Real Madrid this summer or in 2024, the club and player are executing a coordinated strategic plan.

If PSG does not trade him this summer, the Frenchman will sign a contract with Real Madrid in January 2024.

With one year left on the World Cup winner’s contract, PSG are desperate to cash out on him before potentially bidding him farewell on a free transfer in 2024.

Mbappe has reassured his desire to see out his year left with the Parisians, but the idea of not renewing does not sit well with PSG.

Moreover, the report states Mbappe’s mother and representative Fayza Lamari is pushing for her son to join Real Madrid.

The negotiations for Mbappé to move to Madrid, whether this summer or the next, are being handled by the player’s mother. These discussions with PSG over the player’s future are tense.

After Madrid’s previous attempt to land the French superstar last year failed, Perez came out to acknowledge Mbappe’s personal will to join as well as his mother’s desire.

“I think his mother wanted him to come to Real Madrid, because it was his dream as a little boy. I haven’t spoken to her, but they tell us that she is upset. When the circumstances change and a person makes a decision, you have to respect it. He’s 23 and was put under a lot of pressure,” he had said.

But a lot will depend on whether Mbappe is willing to relent on his stance and leave PSG this summer or if he decides to wait until January to sign a pre-contract agreement and arrive at the Bernabeu next year.

Either way, until there is a definitive conclusion from the Mbappe saga, Real Madrid have put their plans for a new forward on hold.

    Heaven help Real Madrid and their fans. Mbappe will unsettle the team with his behaviour and is certainly not worth the money being asked. His disliking for South America footballers is well documented which will not be welcomed by the players and training staff. Let him stay with PSG

In a recent report by Manu de Juan in AS, it has been revealed that Arda Guler is expected to play a significant role for Carlo Ancelotti’s Real Madrid next season, despite ongoing rumours connecting him to Liverpool

Currently, Carlo Ancelotti has five key players listed on the club’s official website: Kylian Mbappe, Vinícius Jr, Rodrygo, Brahim Diaz, and Endrick. However, Guler is an additional player who is likely to make a substantial impact next season.

In fact, it is said that the Turkish teenager is set to be Ancelotti’s versatile player for the 2024-25 season. His adaptability is a major asset as he can play in various positions, including as a central or attacking midfielder, a right winger, or even as a forward. 

His recent performance in the European Championship highlighted his capabilities, where he scored one of the tournament’s standout goals. This versatility makes him a valuable addition to the squad.

Ancelotti has clear plans for Guler

Ancelotti has indicated in the past that he sees Guler’s primary role as a forward. However, the coach is not hesitant to use him in a midfield role when needed.

This flexibility will be crucial, especially with changes in the team’s lineup. With Toni Kroos having left and Aurelien Tchouameni expected to play more as a centre-back, there will be a need for additional midfield options.

Despite his potential, there are concerns about Guler’s physicality and his ability to cover extensive ground on the field. Ancelotti has acknowledged these limitations, noting that Guler needs to improve his defensive positioning and overall physical endurance. 

The coach has mentioned that Guler is already working on these areas, aiming to overcome these challenges.

Meanwhile, during one of the celebrations at Cibeles, Ancelotti hinted at Guler’s increased involvement in the upcoming season. He described Guler as a “very interesting boy,” suggesting that the young player will have more opportunities to showcase his skills. 

This implies that fans can expect to see a lot more of Guler in action, making him a player to watch closely in the next season.
