Kylian Mbappe has been a constant figure on Real Madrid’s wish list for the past few years. The youngster has made it clear many a time that the Merengues are his dream club, yet, has turned down the chance to sign for them on numerous occasions.

Having grown tired of the Frenchman’s shenanigans, Los Blancos placed a deadline on the youngster’s table. The aforementioned deadline may have passed, but it is still clear that if Mbappe does not sign this summer, the door to Madrid will close forever.

It appears as though Florentino Perez’s ploy has worked, for recent days have brought positive developments from Mbappe’s camp. A move is no longer as far as it appeared a month ago.

Tebas weighs in

Speaking to the media in a recent interview, La Liga president Javier Tebas spoke about Kylian Mbappe’s possible move to Real Madrid this summer and the viability of such a large-scale operation.

“There is a high probability that Mbappé will arrive at Real Madrid. More than 50%,” Tebas said, confirming that there are no financial or sporting hurdles to the same.

He went on to admit, however, that it was his personal opinion and that he did not know of Real Madrid’s plans.

“It’s a personal opinion. It depends on Real Madrid, they will decide,” he added, as revealed by Fabrizio Romano.

Decision made

As revealed last week, PSG are already aware of the French winger’s decision to sign for Real Madrid come June.

Their lucrative renewal proposals have not borne fruit, and the player will be a free agent in the summer.

In light of the same, the Parisiens are targetting AC Milan’s Rafael Leao as a replacement to take over from the French talisman.

Needless to say, their hunt for a replacement only confirms the rumour of Mbappe’s dream move nearing completion.

Real Madrid will be on their way to England this Thursday as they gear up to take on Borussia Dortmund in the UEFA Champions League final on Saturday.

The players and the staff will be on a flight to London tomorrow to prepare for the clash at Wembley.

However, according to a report from journalist Arancha Rodriguez, Real Madrid goalkeeper Andriy Lunin might not travel with the rest of the team tomorrow.

The 25-year-old Ukrainian goalkeeper has not trained for three days in a row after coming down with the flu.

Lunin has overcome the flu, but he still has the virus and there is still a chance he could be contagious.

As such, Real Madrid, aware of the importance of Saturday’s match against Borussia Dortmund, are considering leaving the Ukrainian behind to avoid any possible contagion ahead of the Champions League final.

The goalkeeper will likely not travel with the rest of the expedition to London on Thursday and will fly alone on Saturday to avoid the risk of infection.

On Thursday, Lunin will undergo another check-up and, depending on the viral load, he could even travel on Friday. But it seems impossible for him to travel with his teammates.

It has already been suggested that Lunin would be making way for Thibaut Courtois in the starting lineup against Borussia Dortmund on Saturday. The likelihood of that has increased following the events of this week.
