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.
Real Madrid very happy with future star Endrick, eagerly awaiting his arrival in 2024 – Romano
Real Madrid’s attacking unit has been crippled by the loss of Karim Benzema earlier in the summer, which was followed by the loss of Vinicius Jr due to injury.
Although Vinicius has returned, there is much left to be desired from the Madrid frontline as we progress through to the season.
Real Madrid, though, are waiting on the arrival of Endrick. The young Brazilian is set to join the Real Madrid squad in the summer of 2024 when he turns 18.
Real Madrid impressed by Endrick
Endrick has already started his preparation for his pending move to Santiago Bernabeu, having performed exceptionally well in his native Brazil this year.
The youngster is constantly working on his game, in order to further improve himself as an attacker. It has left Real Madrid quite happy and eager for his arrival, reports Fabrizio Romano.
The journalist claims that Real Madrid have been keeping close tabs on everything Endrick has been doing, on and off the pitch, at Palmeiras.
And they have received very good reports on the 17-year-old, with the club impressed by how he is putting efforts to improve himself both performance-wise and in other facets.
Despite there being some question marks over his performances, the teenage forward is starting to showcase his potential, having scored five goals in five starts for Palmeiras.
Endrick also learning new languages
Endrick is not only just working on his performance. In fact, the Brazilian is also learning other languages in order to quickly settle into life in Spain.
The youngster can speak Portuguese, but he may have to master Spanish during his time at Santiago Bernabeu.
As mentioned earlier, Endrick can already speak Portuguese, which should go a long way in helping him team up with fellow Brazilians Vinicius Jr and Rodrygo.
Even Eder Militao can speak Portuguese, which should make it easier for Endrick to adapt to life in Spain, at least for the next year or so.
