As we enter the second half of the transfer window, the time is approaching for Real Madrid to make a conclusive decision on Kylian Mbappe.

The forward had earlier confirmed his desire to stay at PSG next season, hinting that he would join Real Madrid next year.

However, PSG have no intention to sell Mbappe for free in 2024 and want him to pen a contract renewal.

Mbappe thwarts PSG’s latest renewal offer

According to the latest update from Fabrizio Romano, it appears Mbappe has no intention to renew his contract at PSG.

The Italian transfer expert suggests Mbappe has even rejected PSG’s latest renewal offer. The French champions have put forth a host of solutions to the table.

It even included a new contract with a guaranteed sale clause that can be activated in 2024. But the Frenchman has rejected that proposal as well.

PSG are convinced Mbappe only wants a move to Real Madrid, which was evident when the attacker rejected a record proposal from Al Hilal.

What should be Real Madrid’s play here?

Real Madrid have appeared quite reluctant on making a move for the PSG superstar this summer, as it would require more economic provision.

Given the fact that the club have roped in players such as Jude Bellingham and Arda Guler, spending another fortune on Mbappe could indeed be a stretch.

However, Real Madrid have not completely ruled out the idea. In fact, the Spanish giants could reportedly make an offer for Mbappe on August 15, which is just around the corner.

For the time being, Los Blancos would continue to monitor the situation around the Frenchman. It will be interesting to see if the club plan to wait it out until next year before making a move for Mbappe.

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.
