La Liga president Javier Tebas has recently broken his silence over Real Madrid TV’s videos on referees, confirming that the league will take action against the club.
Tebas also commented on the European Super League, notably launching yet another scathing attack on Real Madrid president Florentino Perez.
But apart from these topics, Tebas also spoke about Kylian Mbappe’s future and his speculated move to Real Madrid this summer.
Tebas on Kylian Mbappe’s future
When asked about the future of Mbappe, Tebas suggested that there is more than a 50% chance of the Frenchman joining Real Madrid at the end of the season.
“I said it was around 50% some weeks ago, now it is even more,” Tebas said (h/t Fabrizio Romano) on Mbappe’s future.
When asked whether the chances have exceeded more than 50%, Tebas said, “Yes, I think so.”
This is hardly surprising as Mbappe’s contract at PSG expires at the end of the season. The forward is now the main subject of a tug-of-war between PSG and Real Madrid.
PSG are keen on retaining the Frenchman and are willing to offer him a brand new lucrative deal. The forward, though, has yet to respond to PSG’s offer.
Tebas believes that with each passing day, the chances of Mbappe’s move to Real Madrid increase.
“Every day that passes and Mbappé does not sign the new contract with PSG, the percentage increases,” he said.
Real Madrid, for their part, are certainly pushing and want the Frenchman to make a decision as soon as possible. The coming days could be crucial, as far as the forward’s future is concerned.
Real Madrid do not want to pay ‘crazy money’ for top defensive target – Romano
As has been reported by multiple reliable sources today, Alphonso Davies is likely to be on his way to Real Madrid from Bayern Munich in the summer.
It has been suggested that the 23-year-old Canadian left-back already has a verbal agreement with Los Blancos over a transfer either this summer or in 2025, when his contract with the Bundesliga champions runs down.
Now, the idea is for Real Madrid to start negotiations with Bayern Munich over a transfer fee so that a mutually beneficial agreement can be reached for the summer window.
Real Madrid will not pay crazy money
Amidst all this, Fabrizio Romano has come out with an update claiming that Real Madrid do not intend to pay ‘crazy money’ to sign Davies from Bayern Munich given that he will be entering the final year of his contract.
The Italian transfer expert claims that Real Madrid have been the preferred destination for Davies for a while now and that the personal terms between the two parties will not be an issue at all.
So, a summer move would now hinge on Bayern Munich’s asking price for their left-back.
Romano states that the Bavarian giants will attempt to tie Davies down to a new contract until May or even June.
But if the left-back, who is demanding hefty wages worth around €20 million, does not agree to sign, they will be forced to sell instead of losing him for free next year.
In that scenario, Real Madrid will be best-placed to sign Davies, although Los Blancos will not go overboard with their spending on the Canadian.
