It has been a bizarre last 18 hours in Paris as news about Kylian Mbappe’s desire to leave PSG has broken football internet. The Frenchman has decided not to renew his contract with the French outfit beyond 2024, which has sparked a ton of rumours about his exit.

PSG do not want to lose Mbappe on a Bosman move next summer, and are looking to part with him this summer, with the fee quoted around €150 million. Real Madrid, still deeply interested in signing him, are ready to break the bank to sign him.

Reports have suggested that Mbappe only wants a Madrid move, and is looking to become the club’s hero and protagonist. However, there might still be a twist in the tale, as the Frenchman has taken to Twitter.

Mbappe has put out a tweet quoting that report saying, “LIES”.

“At the same time, the bigger it is, the more it passes. I have already said that I will continue next season at PSG where I am very happy.”

Mbappe had confirmed his intention to continue at PSG beyond the previous season during the UNFP awards, saying, “I’m happy with the decision I made last year. My contract has one more year and I’ll be here [PSG] next season,”

With PSG looking to sell the player, and Madrid happy to take him this summer, it remains to be seen how the three parties will find an agreement, especially with Karim Benzema having left the club to join Al-Ittihad.

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.
