Mbappe saga could drag on until the end of summer with Real Madrid in no hurry

PSG are trying everything in their control to pressurise a move from Kylian Mbappe. The French club are fed up with the winger’s silence and want him to leave this summer.

But according to reports from MARCA, Mbappe will be able to withstand the pressure from the Ligue 1 champions. Neither he nor Real Madrid have any intention of speeding up the process.

The saga of Mbappe’s future is thus expected to go on until the end of the ongoing summer transfer window. Los Blancos hope that such a delay would force PSG to accept a lower fee for their star.

PSG believe an agreement is in place

The connection between Real Madrid and the French winger has been an ongoing storyline for a few years now.

PSG thus find the coordinated silence between both parties suspicious. They believe that Mbappe has an agreement in place to join Los Blancos on a free transfer next summer and that the Spanish club made illegal advances to a player contracted to them.

As such, it was reported that the Parisian giants were considering lodging a formal complaint against Real Madrid to FIFA for ‘tapping up’ the player.

MARCA, however, add that FIFA have not received any message from PSG about the possible agreement they suspect.

Real Madrid also deny any movements around the World Cup winner, and there is no proof of them making any recent approach to the player.

A working trick

As revealed by Ramon Alvarez de Mon, PSG demanded a fee of €300 million for their star player in June. The Merengues backed away in silence and turned a blind eye to the developments in Paris.

A month later, the Ligue 1 champions lowered their demand to €250 million. It is clear that the Merengues are in the driver’s seat, for they once again declined and insisted that their upper limit was €230 million.

With every passing day, PSG edge closer to losing Mbappe on a free transfer. If Florentino Perez deals his cards right, he could get his man on a budget fee this summer.

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.
