After three unreal comebacks in successive rounds of the UEFA Champions League, Real Madrid are truly deserving of their spot in the finals. It would not be wrong to say that Los Blancos are the most resilient team in world football, capable of turning any game at their will.

To imagine another star player joining the ranks of this side is a fearful prospect that would send shivers down the spines of Europe’s finest. That could well happen through Kylian Mbappe’s reported move to Madrid.

After Real Madrid’s sensational run in Europe this season, it seems impossible to convince the youngster not to join the setup next season. PSG are trying hard for a renewal, and Madrid’s aim is to seal the move in the coming weeks.

An official statement has been released around the Frenchman’s future by his mother, Lamari Fayza, stating that nothing had been decided over Mbappe’s future. Fabrizio Romano reports the statement as follows.

“There’s NO agreement in principle with Paris Saint-Germain or any other club. Discussions around Kylian’s future continue in great serenity to allow him to make the best choice, in the respect of all the parties.”

The official statement comes as a response to several reports last night that suggested Mbappe had renewed with PSG for two more seasons. At the same time, Spanish media claimed that his move to Real Madrid had been completed.

The coming weeks will be crucial in deciding the youngsters future. Expect a lot of twists and turns down the way. Yet, a move to Madrid seems more likely than a renewal at this point.

Federico Valverde, the dynamic midfielder for Real Madrid, is once again on the cusp of adapting to a new role under the guidance of coach Carlo Ancelotti, reports Mario Calderon for Mundo Deportivo

Valverde’s remarkable versatility has been a key asset for Real Madrid, allowing him to excel in various positions on the field. This adaptability has been crucial for the team, and it seems another transformation is on the horizon for the 25-year-old Uruguayan.

The team chances and so does Valverde

His potential shift in role comes amid changes within the team, notably the reassignment of the number ‘8’ shirt to Toni Kroos. 

The German midfielder’s responsibility for constructing the game will likely be shared among several players to ensure a seamless transition.

Here, Valverde’s ability to quickly grasp new concepts will be a significant advantage for both him and Ancelotti. Even during the current period, with many players still absent, Ancelotti is already strategizing on how to best integrate everyone into the team dynamics without compromising performance.

Marcelo Bielsa must be credited

Valverde’s recent experiences with the Uruguayan national team in the Copa America under coach Marcelo Bielsa have further honed his skills. 

Bielsa entrusted Valverde with the captain’s armband and deployed him in a deeper role, where he was responsible for initiating plays from the back alongside his teammate, PSG’s young pivot, Manuel Ugarte. 

This experience has enriched Valverde’s understanding of the game, adding another layer to his already impressive skill set.

As the new season approaches, Valverde will need to re-establish himself in whatever role Ancelotti deems fit—be it as a winger, a pivot, or even a full-back, a position he has previously played under former coach Zinedine Zidane. 

Regardless of where he is positioned, Valverde’s importance to the team is undeniable. His versatility, coupled with his ability to adapt quickly, makes him a pivotal player for Real Madrid’s upcoming campaign.
