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.

Key Real Madrid defender still not 100% fit ahead of Club World Cup semi-final – report

Published

Carlo Ancelotti heads into the FIFA Club World Cup in a pressure cooker situation. The pressure on the manager’s shoulders is immense, for his job could be on the line after Real Madrid’s poor run of form.

The injury situation does not favour the Italian tactician either. Lucas Vazquez, Ferland Mendy, Karim Benzema, Eder Militao and even Thibaut Courtois are out of the semi-final against Al Ahly, leaving him very few options to play with.

According to reports from Jorge C Picon, David Alaba too is not completely fit yet. The Austrian International was given the medical all-clear and entered the squad for Real Madrid’s game against Mallorca, yet started on the bench as he was not at 100%, and that remains the case ahead of tonight’s clash.

The report, however, adds that his mere inclusion in the squad comes as a breather for Ancelotti. Alaba is highly valued by the technical staff, not only for his reading of the game on the field but also for his leadership.

The defender has already missed seven games for Los Blancos since sustaining a muscular injury against Villarreal at La Ceramica. He did indeed come off the bench for under half an hour against Mallorca, but will likely not be risked to start on Thursday. 

In his absence, Nacho Fernandez and Antonio Rudiger are expected to take centre stage in defence in Morocco. Eduardo Camavinga, meanwhile, could start as left-back again.

Alaba has played 17 games for Los Blancos this season and was one of the players with the most minutes until his injury. In his league campaign so far, he has scored one goal and provided three assists while also averaging a key pass every ninety minutes.

It remains to be seen if the Austrian recovers completely in time for the Club World Cup final should the European Champions make it. As it stands, using a cautious approach is in Real Madrid’s best interest.
