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.

There just does not appear to be any respite from injuries for Real Madrid.

Just when it appeared that they were close to having their full squad – barring the two long-term absentees – the Merengues have been struck down by fresh injuries this week.

Arda Guler, who was on the cusp of being named in the squad for the Las Palmas clash, injured himself in training on Tuesday.

And now, during the game against Las Palmas at the Santiago Bernabeu, Real Madrid have lost key defender David Alaba to an injury.

Close to the 40th-minute mark, Alaba went down on the ground clutching his leg and appeared to be in quite a bit of discomfort.

Soon enough, the medical staff arrived to take a look at the Austrian and seconds later he was off the pitch and straight towards the tunnel.

Lucas Vazquez came on to replace the injured Alaba, with Nacho Fernandez moving into the centre-back position alongside Antonio Rudiger.

Alaba’s injury leaves Carlo Ancelotti with just two fit centre-backs in Rudiger and Nacho, which is set to be a matter of great concern.

The hope will be that Alaba’s condition is nothing serious and that he is able to mount a quick recovery.
