It is no secret that Real Madrid are headed towards the signing of Kylian Mbappe from PSG in the summer transfer window.

The French superstar’s contract at the Parisian outfit expires at the end of the season and has decided to leave as a free agent, with everything indicating that he will be moving to the Spanish capital club.

There has been nothing official announced about it, though, given that both Real Madrid and PSG are still active in the UEFA Champions League and might even face each other in the finals.

Imminent movement likely if PSG is eliminated

However, a report from El Chiringuito TV states that if PSG are eliminated from the UEFA Champions League by Barcelona, there may be some imminent movement between Mbappe and Real Madrid.

The first leg of the quarterfinals saw PSG get beaten 2-3 at home and if they are unable to overturn that tonight, they will be eliminated from the competition.

That happening could bring Mbappe and Real Madrid a step closer as there may be some imminent movement expected between the two parties if PSG are out of the tournament.

If reports are to be believed, the 2018 FIFA World Cup winner has already signed his contract with the Merengues, and the announcement has been held up for the season to get over.

But if PSG are out of the Champions League, the date of the announcement might come forward.

Even with all the excitement around Kylian Mbappe, it is Vinicius Junior, who continues to be Real Madrid’s biggest star.

In the past few years, the Brazilian has witnessed substantial growth, notably establishing himself as one of the best players in world football.

Vinicius’ rapid rise to prominence has been backed by numbers as well, with the forward racking up 82 goals and 75 assists in 262 competitive matches for Real Madrid.

Vinicius on receiving advice from Ronaldo

In a recent media interaction, Vinicius Junior, when talking about his success at Real Madrid, revealed that the forward constantly receives advice from his compatriot and former Real Madrid legend Ronaldo.

Vinicius particularly pointed out Ronaldo’s advice in 1v1 situations and how it has helped him improve in such scenarios.

“Ronaldo always calls me and gives me advice, he teaches me so many things. Since he told me that his favourite thing is a 1v1 vs a GK, I thought about it a lot and started working on it really hard,” Vinicius said (h/t Madrid Zone).

“Now, every time I’m in a 1v1 with a GK, I’m the calmest guy in the world. Ever since that conversation with Ronaldo, I stopped being afraid of making mistakes in a 1v1,” the forward added.

Vinicius has indeed witnessed an improvement in his 1v1 play in recent years, which has been reflected in his higher goalscoring numbers.

This season, the forward has netted 23 goals in all competitions while racking up 11 assists. His goalscoring prowess, coupled with his ability in 1v1 situations could prove to be critical as Real Madrid take on Borussia Dortmund in the UEFA Champions League final next month.

The Brazilian international, though, will be up against a challenging defensive duo of Mats Hummels and Nico Schlotterbeck, who have been able to keep the opposition attacks quiet this season.
