Kylian Mbappe is back dominating the headlines once again just five months after renewing his contract with Paris Saint-Germain.

The Frenchman had looked all set to join Real Madrid on a Bosman move last summer but made a shock U-turn in the last moment to pen a new contract with PSG.

As part of the new deal, the 23-year-old was reportedly given a say in the major decisions that the club made with regard to transfer targets and managerial appointments, apart from a hefty signing-on bonus and mammoth wages.

And, according to MARCA, one of the signings that Mbappe recommended and requested was that of Aurelien Tchouameni. However, PSG were beaten to the midfielder’s signing by Real Madrid, who landed the 22-year-old in a deal that could rise up to €100 million.

The former AS Monaco ace was a man in demand in the summer window as Liverpool too had shown an interest in his services, apart from PSG.

However, Tchouameni always had Real Madrid on his mind as soon as he became aware of their interest, as revealed by himself in a recent interview.

The report from MARCA claims that PSG’s failure to deliver on the promise of signing Tchouameni is one of many reasons why Mbappe is now pushing to leave the club.

The 23-year-old feels ‘betrayed’ by the Ligue 1 champions and is willing to move on as early as January, with a move to Real Madrid said to be his preference. However, PSG have no intentions of letting him join the reigning champions of Spain and Europe.

It will be interesting to see whether Mbappe gets his wishes to join Real Madrid and play with his compatriot, Tchouameni, who he wanted to pair up with at PSG itself this past summer.

Real Madrid set to go into 2023/24 season without any major reinforcements – report

It has not been a great start to the year for Real Madrid. Barring a win over Liverpool in the UEFA Champions League, the Spanish giants have been humiliated by their arch-rivals Barcelona three times while dropping points carelessly in La Liga.

With 12 points dividing the two teams at the top of the table, there is not much hope for Real Madrid, in their bid to retain the title.

Unsurprisingly, this has led to immense pressure on Carlo Ancelotti, who is facing a fightback against those who want him gone at the end of the season.

In the midst of this chaos, a recent report from MARCA states that Real Madrid may once again endure a relatively calm transfer market in the coming summer.

It appears the club have no desire to make too many signings in the summer and are set to go into the 2023/24 campaign without any major reinforcements.

It is no doubt that Real Madrid’s poor performances have highlighted the team’s lack of depth and the need for reinforcements. Especially in the attacking and the defensive department, the club clearly need more depth as they often rely on their existing stars.

But it appears Real Madrid are calm about the issue and do not want to take any risks in the coming summer. Even before the start of the 2022/23 season, Aurelien Tchouameni was the club’s only notable signing, much to the disappointment of Ancelotti.

Recent reports have hinted that Real Madrid’s transfer activity would rely on who becomes the coach in the summer. But the club’s static approach to the market in 2023 could make sense, given the club that the Spanish giants are targeting star players such as Jude Bellingham, Kylian Mbappe and Erling Haaland.

All of the three aforementioned stars are either available or would be available on a cut-price deal in 2024. Erling Haaland, for one, has a special release clause in his contract that can be activated in 2024, even though Manchester City are actively looking to remove it.

Mbappe, too, has his contract at PSG expiring at the end of the 2023/24 season, so it will be interesting to see how Real Madrid go about their business in the coming summer.
