At the tender age of 23, Kylian Mbappe is already a global icon. The Frenchman conquered the elusive World Cup the first time he played in it, and has displayed a ridiculous consistency in front of goal.

The youngster is dubbed as a future Ballon d’Or winner and his statistics back the same. Mbappe wishes to move to Real Madrid in the summer, but the process is not as straightforward as it appears.

Reputed investigative journalist Romain Molina reveals details on the various forces in play in deciding the youngsters future.

Kylian Mbappe’s renewal is a reportedly a political matter for the state of Qatar. Emir of Qatar and France’s President Emmanuel Macron are trying to convince Mbappe to stay at PSG.

This is primarily because his departure would inflict big damage to the image and branding of the club owners and Ligue 1.

PSG have tried everything at the financial level to convince the 23-year-old to stay. Most recently, they have gone as far as to offer him the captain’s armband for the upcoming season.

The former Monaco star hasn’t made a final decision about his future yet. Multiple clubs want to sign him this summer. It is Real Madrid, however, who lead the race.

Mbappe, once again, displayed his brilliance one the weekend against Lorient. On the night, he had two goals and three asissts to his name with four key passes and three shots on target in a 5-1 win.

It is understandable why he is an invaluable asset to both club and country and neither want to let him go in the summer.

Real Madrid have made it a habit to identify and sign the best young talents from Brazil in recent times. The Merengues recently signed Endrick Felipe from Palmeiras, although the striker will join the club in 2024, once he turns 18 years old.

Now, according to journalist Bruno Andrade on UOL Esporte, Real Madrid have set their sights on 19-year-old Brazilian defender Robert Renan.

The teenage centre-half came through the ranks at Corinthians and went on to make 13 senior appearances for the Brazilian outfit. He left the club last month to sign for Russian giants Zenit St. Petersburg as part of the operation involving Yuri Alberto.

Renan is yet to make his debut for Zenit, but Real Madrid have had their eyes on the 19-year-old for a while now and have been closely following his progress and performances.

The teenage defender is currently a part of the Brazil U-20 team at the South American U-20 Championship in Colombia. And he has performed admirably in the tournament, featuring in each of his team’s five matches so far.

Renan’s performances in the U-20 Championship are said to have further piqued the interest of Real Madrid.

The report suggests that Los Blancos will continue keeping tabs on the young defender’s development at Zenit over the coming months.

With Nacho Fernandez’s contract expiring at the end of the season and Jesus Vallejo’s future uncertain as well, Real Madrid could use a defensive reinforcement in the summer to support Eder Militao, David Alaba and Antonio Rudiger.

Established players such as Josko Gvardiol have been linked with a move to the Bernabeu.

Renan, too, could be an option for Real Madrid in the summer. But, as things stand, the interest in the Brazilian is at a very nascent stage and the Merengues will continue to track his progress at Zenit, where his contract runs until 2028.
