Over the past 12 hours or so, the Kylian Mbappe transfer saga has once again taken centre stage after it emerged that the 24-year-old superstar informed PSG via a letter that he will not renew his contract.

It would mean that Mbappe would become a free agent next year and could leave for no fee. With PSG keen on avoiding such a scenario, the French forward could be sold this summer itself, alerting Real Madrid to the possibility of signing him.

However, according to MARCA, Real Madrid will not be alone in pursuit of Mbappe as Liverpool will be expected to rival them if the 2018 FIFA World Cup winner does end up on the market.

Real Madrid have been long-term admirers of Mbappe. They had offered close to €200 million for him in 2021, but PSG rejected their advances. The Merengues believed that they had his signing on a free transfer in the bag last year, only for the attacker to perform a last-minute swerve and renew with the Parisians.

However, with Mbappe now officially informing PSG that he does not wish to extend his contract, Florentino Perez is prepared to go all-out for his signing again.

But PSG are unwilling to do business with Real Madrid and would prefer to sell Mbappe to anyone else apart from Los Blancos.

It opens up the door for Liverpool to make a move. Like Real Madrid, the Reds have also held a long-standing interest in Mbappe and could decide to move for him if it becomes certain that the Frenchman, whose market value is €180 million, is on the market this summer.

The player, for his part, dreams of a move to Real Madrid. However, with relationship between the two clubs strained, PSG could make it difficult for Mbappe to join the Spanish capital giants.

Real Madrid out-of-favour defender now unlikely to leave the club

Real Madrid missed out on the signing of Leny Yoro after deciding not to match Manchester United’s offer for the 18-year-old defender.

With the French prodigy now on his way to the Premier League, Los Blancos are assessing their options before deciding whether to sign a new centre-back or not.

As things stand, the reigning champions of Spain and Europe seem to be leaning towards relying on their existing options rather than going into the market.

Jesus Vallejo unlikely to leave

As such, MARCA reports that the likelihood of Jesus Vallejo leaving the club have now significantly reduced.

Indeed, the 27-year-old out-of-favour defender now appears more and more likely to continue at Real Madrid beyond this summer.

Vallejo returned to the Santiago Bernabeu after finishing his loan stint at Granada during which he hardly played due to injury and fitness woes.

As such, reports suggested that Carlo Ancelotti & co. were not planning on counting on him next season, even though he was handed a new shirt number recently.

But with the Leny Yoro operation collapsing and Real Madrid not keen on recruiting anyone from the market at this point, the Spanish ace is now unlikely to leave the club.

With David Alaba still sidelined, Antonio Rudiger and Eder Militao will start the new season as the first-choice centre-back pairing and Vallejo will serve as the backup while Aurelien Tchouameni will also be an option.

Vallejo, for his part, wanted to stay put and see out his contract which expires in 2025. And, as things stand, it appears that the player will get his wish.
