According to Fabrizio Romano, PSG are ready to sell Kylian Mbappe this summer amid strong links to Real Madrid. The journalist further adds that a move to the Santiago Bernabeu remains the 24-year-old’s dream and that he has already apologised to Florentino Perez over snubbing the club last year.

Real Madrid were close to signing Mbappe last summer, but the forward performed a last-minute U-turn to renew his contract with PSG. The move left the Merengues red-faced as they had made preparations to bring the French international to the club.

Naturally, it was believed that Los Blancos were left furious by Mbappe’s sudden change of heart, with club president Perez saying: “This is not the Mbappe I wanted to bring, he is another one, who must have changed his dream.”

However, according to Romano, Mbappe has already issued an apology to Real Madrid supremo Perez over his actions last summer. And the 24-year-old attacker’s dream continues to be to turn out in the royal white of Madrid.

PSG, for their part, are furious about the news coming out from Spain about Mbappe as well as Perez’s recent statements in which he confirmed that he plans to sign the 2018 FIFA World Cup winner.

That, coupled with the Frenchman’s decision not to extend his contract beyond 2024, means that they have now decided to sell him this summer itself, to avoid losing him for nothing next year.

It was reported that Liverpool would be interested in a move for Mbappe if he were to become available. But Romano specifies that the Reds do not have the money to go after his signing, much like Bayern Munich.

It had also been suggested that PSG might demand €150 million for their ace forward, but Romano adds that the Parisian giants are yet to set a price tag.

While an agreement with Mbappe might not be difficult, the transfer will hinge on how negotiations between Real Madrid and PSG go.

    Mbappe was under pressure from his family and the French President to stay with PSG.However, Real Madrid do not have to chase after him. If Mbappe really want to play for Real Madrid, he should make it happen.

Real Madrid 23-year-old striker close to finalising a move to Real Valladolid – report

After two years on loan at Getafe, former Real Madrid striker Juanmi Latasa has returned to the Spanish capital.

His performances, after all, were not enough to coerce his foster club to push for a permanent transfer.

The 23-year-old striker made 32 appearances for Getafe last season, including 15 starts. However, he only had two goals to show for his regular participation and it is safe to label his time at the club as a disappointment.

Now back in Madrid, Latasa is unlikely to get a chance to make a mark at the club. All signs point to a departure in the coming days.

The overwhelming favorite

As revealed in a recent report by Jorge C Picon, several first-division teams in Spain have reported interest in the young striker. Real Valladolid however, are the overwhelming favourites.

The La Liga side are looking for a striker with a good physical presence, height, a strong aerial presence and a knack for goal.

Latasa ticks all the boxes they demand and negotiations between the two clubs are expected to progress in the coming days.

Latasa’s sale, at this point, is thus taken for granted. Leganes and Espanyol are some of the other clubs interested in his services.

No scope in Madrid

Carlo Ancelotti, over the years, has not carved out a reputation as one who trusts academy stars heavily. In his defence, however, he has always had superior options available.

Heading into next season, Los Blancos have a packed forward department including Kylian Mbape, Vinicius Jr, Rodrygo Goes and Endrick.

Considering that the well-established Joselu himself saw no scope at the club next season, it is safe to say that Latasa understands his situation.

From Real Madrid’s perspective, it remains to be seen if they maintain any leverage on his future.
