The soap opera of Kylian Mbappe’s transfer to Real Madrid refuses to die down. It has been weeks since the Frenchman announced his intention to part ways with the club in 2024, but no concrete development has taken place since.

The long-awaited transfer appeared to be on the cusp of materialising last month, with Real Madrid even willing to offer over €150 million for his immediate incorporation. However, things took a drastic turn when the player insisted on seeing out his contract and accumulating the promised salary for next season.

Reports last week brought forth a new development of the Parisiens being open to offering Mbappe a unique contract. The said proposal would see him extend for two to three seasons but with a commitment to sell him in the summer of 2024.

According to reports from Rodrigo Faez, the Frenchman has refused to sign any renewal with PSG. He wishes to move to Real Madrid this summer and is now hoping to reach an agreement with his club so that a move to Los Blancos can pick up pace.

This comes as a massive relief to both parties involved, for it solves all the roadblocks in his transfer saga.

From PSG’s perspective, they will be able to finally recoup money from his departure and no longer risk losing him on a free transfer. As to whether he would be willing to let go of the bonus he is owed next year, that still remains unclear.

There is also relief in Madrid simultaneously. With Mbappe pushing to sign this summer, the Merengues will have their new marquee forward for the 2023-24 campaign and will save the signing-on bonus that would be expected had he joined next summer.

One hopes that the coming days will be decisive in Mbappe’s future. With the player taking a firm stance, this could finally mean the end of a seemingly endless saga.

    He doesn’t have to reach any agreement with PSG. He’s already signed a contract with them. PSG just don’t want him to walk away for free.

How Manchester United’s pursuit of Dutch star could benefit Real Madrid

The highly anticipated transfer of Leny Yoro to Real Madrid has encountered an unexpected obstacle, with Manchester United’s surprise entry into the race. 

The Red Devils have successfully negotiated a substantial €50 million+ bid with Lille, leaving Real Madrid’s chances hanging by a thread. 

This means the only factor still in favour of Real Madrid is Yoro’s strong desire to wear the iconic white shirt, a dream he has harboured for a long time.

As things stand, Real Madrid face significant hurdles. For once, Lille are exerting pressure on the player to accept Manchester United’s offer, given its considerable value. 

On the other hand, Real Madrid are hesitant to match this figure, creating a stalemate. Additionally, Manchester United are eager to secure a top-notch defender, especially with the departure of Raphael Varane, a former Real Madrid player. 

This sense of urgency is driving United’s pursuit of Yoro, making them a formidable competitor in the transfer race.

A glimmer of hope for Real Madrid

As it turns out, Manchester United are also considering Bayern Munich defender Matthijs de Ligt as a priority target. De Ligt has given his nod to the move and has instructed his representatives to disregard other offers. 

This development provides Real Madrid with a much-needed advantage in the pursuit of Yoro, as United’s focus is divided between two top defenders.

While Manchester United have made progress in negotiations with both De Ligt and Yoro, it is unlikely that they will recruit both players. 

Given De Ligt’s readiness to make an immediate move, Manchester United are expected to prioritize his transfer, leaving Real Madrid as the sole contender for Yoro’s signature. 

This twist in the tale gives Real Madrid a glimmer of hope, as they can now focus their efforts on convincing Yoro to join their ranks.

Yoro’s dilemma: To wait for Madrid or join United

Yoro’s preference is to join Real Madrid, but the club has yet to indicate its willingness to match Lille’s accepted fee from Manchester United.

This has led the Ligue 1 club to favour a transfer deal with the Premier League club. 

If Yoro is to make a move this summer, he faces a difficult decision: either wait until 2025 to join Real Madrid for free, which Lille are unlikely to accept, or agree to a transfer to Manchester United, which would benefit the French club.

The outcome of Yoro’s transfer now hangs precariously in the balance. Real Madrid’s reluctance to match Manchester United’s offer and Yoro’s personal preference for the Spanish giants are the key factors in this high-stakes transfer drama. 

Will Yoro choose to wait for his dream move to Real Madrid or opt for a switch to Manchester United? Only time will tell. 

In the end, Yoro’s transfer will have significant implications for all parties involved. Real Madrid’s hopes of landing their top target hang in the balance, while Manchester United’s urgency to recruit a top defender has thrown a spanner in the works. 

Lille, too, are eager to cash in on their prized asset, and Yoro’s decision will determine the fate of his transfer.

But with United going after De Ligt, it could end up playing into the hands of Real Madrid, helping them land their top target to replace Nacho.
