The entire world of football is eyeing the Mbappe – Real Madrid saga. The young sensation has made his desire to play for Los Blancos known publicly, and the summer is seen as the perfect time for his dream to turn into reality.
According to reports from Sergio Quirante of Gol, the PSG player’s entourage have confirmed that he will play for Real Madrid next season.
Mbappe’s contract at PSG ends in June after which he will be able to make a move as a free agent. Though the Parisiens have tried to secure his renewal, the player is firm about his commitment to join the Spanish side.
Moreover, it is said that the player already has a verbal agreement in place with Los Blancos. With Mbappe in their ranks, Real Madrid will boast of one of the most dangerous attacking trios in world football.
Karim Benzema has oozed class for the past few seasons, and Vinicius Jr. has finally found his footing as a world-class player. Together, the three will be a menace to opposition defences.
In 21 league starts for PSG this season, Mbappe boasts of a whopping 12 goals and nine assists. Further, he averages two key passes per game and has created 13 big chances in Ligue 1 alone.
Earlier today, La Liga president Javier Tebas was asked about the potential move of the French star to Real Madrid. He responded in the affirmative and added that Erling Haaland could be on his way to the Madrid-based side too.
“Madrid will get Mbappe and [Erling] Haaland as the others [Barcelona and Juventus] are half [financially] ruined.”
Real Madrid veteran has ‘adopted’ Arda Guler, is mentoring him in training
The current edition of the Real Madrid squad is full of young talents, who have shown remarkable potential in recent years.
Arda Guler is among the young players looking to make a mark in European football in the years to come.
The young Turk joined Real Madrid earlier this summer, rejecting many other European giants in the process.
Toni Kroos mentoring Guler at Real Madrid
Guler has not enjoyed the best of starts to his life at Santiago Bernabeu, as he is spending a brief time on the sidelines due to an injury.
However, Guler has not stopped working on his characteristics, as he looks to kickstart his Real Madrid career on a positive note.
To that end, the former Fenerbahce starlet is receiving some key support from one of Real Madrid’s midfield pillars in the form of Toni Kroos.
This is according to MARCA, which suggests that the German international is mentoring Guler in his early days at Santiago Bernabeu.
Kroos: huge ‘sponsor’ of Guler
The report highlights how Toni Kroos is a huge admirer of Arda Guler. The German had even heaped praise on the youngster from Turkey when he joined the club earlier in the summer.
Guler, therefore, is closely training with Kroos, whose years of experience, composure, and knowledge of football, could help the youngster grow at Santiago Bernabeu.
This fits in well with Carlo Ancelotti’s vision at Real Madrid, as the Italian boss wants youngsters to have room to grow, especially with guidance from some of the older guards in the team.
It is one of the key reasons Real Madrid wanted to stick to Kroos and Luka Modric, despite bringing in Arda Guler and Jude Bellingham in the summer.
Guler, therefore, has the stage set for him to start his Real Madrid career on a strong note. After impressing in training, the next step for the youngster is to make a promising debut, which is just around the corner.
