The weight of Kylian Mbappe’s ostracism appears palpable, with PSG committed to alienating their star player in hopes of forcing him to accept a transfer before he inevitably takes his leave for free next year.

While Mbappe proceeds to reject proposals over a contract extension by the Parisians’ hierarchy, PSG are adamant on fetching a hefty fee for the World Cup winner.

Real Madrid, currently the team best placed to land the youngster, await Mbappe’s arrival anxiously.

And it was recently reported that optimism in the Spanish capital is rising in this matter.

PSG proceed to alienate Mbappe

In light of Real Madrid’s looming interest as well as the player’s own desire to eventually don the Royal Whites’ jersey, PSG are beginning to strong-arm Mbappe into taking a decision over his future immediately.

In their attempts to push him away from the club, Mbappe’s image is being removed from the Parc des Princes.

Despite being hailed as PSG’s poster boy, the Parisians continue to further distance themselves from Mbappe, indirectly providing evidence of their desire to find a suitor for the player.

In addition to removing his image from the stadium, there are no Mbappe shirts available for purchase in the PSG store any longer.

Mbappe shirts are not available in the official store in any capacity either. Nearly everything related to the player is being removed.

As of yesterday, there were still Mbappe shirts at the official PSG store in Paris, indicating advancements behind the scenes.

Potentially heading into the end game

Florentino Perez reportedly has an opening bid of €180 million ready to send to Paris for their star player, which he plans to submit once Mbappe opens up about his intention to leave.

With PSG already isolating their biggest commercial asset, the possibility of him taking that route has undeniably risen.

All that remains for Madrid and PSG is to enter formal negotiations. With Mbappe unwilling to settle for an extension, a transfer to the Bernabeu may finally materialize this summer.

    PSG is just being childish. Mbappe will remain their best player ever for a long distance and cannot be forgotten in a long time.The President lacks understanding of football. One player cannot win the champions league for a team no matter how good. You need a minimum of 15 quality players and a very good coach. When Ronaldo threatened to leave Madrid in 2018 nobody persuaded him to stay. He was the best player ever in champions league. 4 years down the lane Madrid won another champions league cup in the most admirable manner ever in the history of the championship beating all the best teams in Europe- PSG, Chelsea, Manchester City, Liverpool. If Bayern, Juventus, Atletico Madrid and Barcelona came their way, Madrid would have beaten them. So leave Mbappe alone, let him go wherever he pleases and rebuild your team, Mr Al- Khelaifi.

    You are destroying loyalty by defacing his achievements in PSG. It will have a negative effect on players in future. The club may become unstable in player turn over.

Al-Nassr and Al-Hilal ready to make Real Madrid veteran the highest-paid defender – report

A month ago, whispers began to circulate about Real Madrid’s star defender, Antonio Rudiger, drawing attention from Saudi Arabian football clubs. Initially, Rudiger appeared uninterested in the potential move. 

However, recent reports from SPORT reveal that he has now received multiple offers from the Middle East, notably from Al-Nassr and Al-Hilal, and these offers are lucrative enough to make him the highest-paid defender globally.

Currently, Real Madrid have no intention of parting ways with Rudiger. The player, in turn, seems content to stay with the Spanish giants. 

This mutual desire to remain united is understandable, especially given the circumstances of the past season. 

Injuries to key defenders Eder Militao and David Alaba left a significant void in Real Madrid’s defence, which Rudiger admirably filled. Despite being 31 years old, Rudiger’s exceptional performance last season has only increased his value.

Al-Nassr and Al-Hilal want Rudiger

Al-Nassr, a team that boasts stars like Cristiano Ronaldo, Marcelo Brozovic, and Sadio Mane, is reportedly keen on adding Rudiger to their ranks. 

They currently have Aymeric Laporte as their primary defensive asset, but the dream of strengthening their defence with Rudiger is strong.

The idea is to pair Rudiger with Laporte, creating a formidable defensive duo. The financial offer on the table for Rudiger is astronomical, designed to tempt him into forming a top-tier defensive partnership.

Similarly, Al-Hilal, are also in the hunt. Their goal is to bolster a defence that already features standout players like Senegalese defender Kalidou Koulibaly. 

If Rudiger were to join Al-Hilal, he would be in the company of notable talents such as Sergej Milinkovic-Savic, Ruben Neves, Renan Lodi, and Bono.

Real Madrid and Rudiger are uninterested

Despite these enticing offers, Real Madrid remain firm in their decision not to sell Rudiger. The player himself is not inclined to leave La Liga. 

The departure of Nacho to Saudi Arabia’s Al-Qadsiah and the uncertain physical conditions of Alaba and Militao are pivotal reasons why Real Madrid are unwilling to consider letting go of their most dependable centre-back.

While the Saudi Arabian league is likely to continue its efforts to persuade all parties involved that Rudiger’s transfer would be mutually beneficial, the reality is that such an operation appears highly improbable. 

Rudiger’s value to Real Madrid, coupled with his own commitment to the club, makes any potential move a complex and unlikely scenario.
