It has been a difficult week for Paris Saint-Germain. The French champions were rocked by speculations suggesting Kylian Mbappe’s desire to leave the club in January amid disagreements with the board.

It was followed by Mediapart’s investigative report on PSG’s use of a “digital army” called Digital Big Brother to launch a smear campaign against Mbappe back in 2019.

The attacker, at the time, had made headlines after revealing updates on his future. He suggested that his future could lie elsewhere, which had put PSG under a lot of pressure to keep hold of the attacker.

According to the Mediapart report, PSG had subsequently launched a smear campaign against the Frenchman online. He was not the only target either, with the club allegedly targeting his compatriot Adrien Rabiot and several other players and media outlets.

In light of these allegations, RMC Sport has conducted an interview with a sports lawyer, who suggests Mbappe could be in a position to terminate his contract at PSG if the allegations against the club are proven.

“Professional players are bound to their club by a fixed-term employment contract, recalls the lawyer. This type of contract can only be broken in specific cases such as serious misconduct. For example, it has been retained in cases of physical, verbal violence or abuse of freedom of expression,” says Tatiana Vessine, a sports lawyer.

“If it were proven and attributable to the employer, therefore the club, it would in my opinion be serious enough to justify a breach of contract,” she added.

The ability to terminate the contract could prove to be quite significant, not only for Mbappe but also for Real Madrid, who have been eyeing a move for the Frenchman for quite some time now.

The Whites were heavily linked with a move for the former AS Monaco starlet in the summer. But the player opted to remain at PSG, subsequently signing a bumper contract extension.

However, with Mbappe’s future at PSG once again coming under the microscope, links to Real Madrid have surfaced yet again, with reports claiming that the 23-year-old wants a move to the Santiago Bernabeu.

It will be interesting to see what the future holds for the French international in the coming months.

Eder Militao has charted a remarkable recovery to return from an ACL injury he suffered on the first day of the 2023/24 season.

The Brazilian international came back to action in late March, featuring for a couple of minutes against Athletic Club – the very team against whom he had sustained the injury.

Following that, the centre-back has also featured sparingly in games against Mallorca and Manchester City, although he is yet to start a game.

Ancelotti has plan for Militao

Now, AS reports that Real Madrid manager Carlo Ancelotti has devised a plan for Militao to be ready to go when the team face Bayern Munich later this month in the UEFA Champions League semifinal first leg.

Militao is expected to play an important role in the Champions League semi-finals. The coaching staff is counting on him to reinforce the team’s defensive capabilities.

The first phase of his reintegration into the dynamics of the competition, which was more psychological than physical, has already been completed.

Ancelotti, who has now drawn up a special plan to give him minutes in order to get him ready (physically) for the semi-finals.

First Militao will be used in the Clásico today, depending on how the game goes. Then against Real Sociedad next week, on this occasion, the Brazilian could even likely be a starter.

At centre-back or right-back

Militao will have options to play against Bayern Munich in the centre of defence, alongside Antonio Rudiger, but also at right-back, as Dani Carvajal will miss the game because he picked up his third yellow card of the season at the Etihad.

It will all depend on how the Brazilian performs in the two remaining games against Barça and Real Sociedad before the UCL semi-final first leg on 30 April.

For the second leg, on 8 May, at the Bernabeu, Militao will compete on equal terms with the rest of the back four. There will be one more game between the two contests, against Cadiz, for him to get minutes. That’s what Ancelotti is counting on with the Brazilian.
