Earlier today, it was confirmed that Al Hilal had sent in a world-record €300 million offer for Kylian Mbappe that PSG are considering accepting as they look to offload him at the earliest possible.

As part of the proposal, the Saudi Arabian giants are even ready to hand Mbappe a mammoth €700 million per season deal with the provision for him to leave for Real Madrid in 2024.

However, as per the latest update from journalist Sergio Fernandez, despite PSG being ready to accept Al Hilal’s gigantic offer, Mbappe has no desire to move to Saudi Arabia and will not join the Middle East outfit.

It is further claimed that the 24-year-old attacking phenom would be willing to spend the entire next season on the bench or in the stands but will not sign for the Saudi Arabian giants.

PSG, for their part, are eager to rush Mbappe’s sale as the longer the situation drags on, the weaker their position gets. To that end, they have been putting pressure on the Frenchman by various means, such as excluding him from the pre-season tour of Asia.

Mbappe, for his part, has not made any move despite all these developments and is training with several other outcasts in Paris. As for Real Madrid, they have also remained quiet on the matter despite their well-known interest in signing the superstar forward.

PSG are seemingly trying to force Los Blancos into action by potentially drumming up rumours of interest from Barcelona.

At the same time, they also wish to discredit Mbappe by painting him in a bad light. The club want to depict him as a bad apple for his refusal to join Al Hilal even though it would mean that his club would stand to earn €300 million from the transfer.

The Ligue 1 champions firmly believe that the forward has an agreement with Real Madrid over a Bosman move in 2024 and want to avoid that scenario at all costs.

However, with the forward unwilling to leave for Al Hilal, it will be interesting to see how the situation develops in the coming days.

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.
