As the fallout continues from Kylian Mbappe’s decision to not renew with PSG, Le Parisien is now reporting that the 24-year-old superstar wants to move to Real Madrid and he hopes for the transfer to be completed as soon as possible.

Mbappe had been close to joining Los Blancos in the last two summer windows, but the transfer never materialised. However, with his contract expiring next year and his decision not to renew, PSG will be forced to sell him this year or risk losing him for nothing next year.

It has been reported that the French champions could demand a fee of €150 million for their superstar forward. Some outlets have also suggested that Les Parisiens would be unwilling to sell Mbappe to Real Madrid.

However, as per the report from Le Parisien, Mbappe wants only Real Madrid and is not interested in joining any other club.

The €180 million-rated superstar sees the opportunity to join the Merengues as unmissable following the departure of Karim Benzema to Al-Ittihad. He wants to be the new leader of the team following his compatriot’s exit.

The report further adds that Real Madrid are ready to sign Mbappe and that contrary to previous reports, PSG will not stand in the way of his transfer to the Santiago Bernabeu this summer.

This is certainly a huge development and comes after Mbappe released an official statement via AFP confirming that he had informed PSG of his decision to not want to trigger a contract extension.

“I have never discussed a contract extension with PSG. The board has been informed since July 15th, 2022 of my decision not to extend beyond 2024, and the letter sent was only meant to confirm what I already told them.”

The stars seem to be aligning for Mbappe to join Real Madrid, which would make it a blockbuster summer for the Merengues, given that they have already secured the signings of Jude Bellingham, and Fran Garcia, and welcomed back Brahim Diaz.

Real Madrid youngster Mario Martin finds himself at an interesting juncture in his fledgeling career.

The midfield prospect is well-liked at the club after impressing with Castilla in the past two seasons while first-team manager Carlo Ancelotti is also an admirer of the player.

While Martin seems to have reached the end of his cycle in Castilla, a spot in the first-team squad is not necessarily available right away, unless Dani Ceballos ends up leaving.

Plenty of interest in Mario Martin

Now, The Athletic reports that Mario Martin is a player in demand in La Liga with half the teams in the Spanish top flight eager to sign him up this summer.

As has already been reported, Real Valladolid and RCD Espanyol are understood to have shown a strong interest in the 20-year-old midfield talent.

However, it appears that there are a plethora of other clubs in La Liga who would be happy to sign Martin from Real Madrid in the current transfer window.

Martin wants to stay

But, the report states Martin is leaning towards staying put at Real Madrid at this point even though the prospects of regular first-team minutes are highly unlikely.

The 20-year-old, who has made four senior appearances for Los Blancos thus far, has a contract that runs until the summer of 2026.

Real Madrid, for their part, are not necessarily ruling out a sale provided a good offer comes along.

Even if they do part ways with Martin, the Spanish capital club would very much likely insert an affordable buyback clause as they have been doing in recent times for departing youth players.
