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 finally received some good news as MARCA confirms that Nacho has finally made his decision about his future, and is set to continue at the club for the foreseeable future.

His contract expires in the summer, and Real Madrid had tabled an extension for the player, which was not accepted by the Spaniard at the time. Now, however, he has decided to reject offers from Juventus, Inter Milan, Chelsea, Inter Milan, and AC Milan.

Nacho will sign a one year extension, with the option to extend for another year if both parties reach an agreement.

His continuity also means that he will be the new club captain for the 2023/24 season, since Karim Benzema is leaving the club on a free transfer in the summer. Luka Modric will be second captain, followed by Daniel Carvajal and Toni Kroos.

Carlo Ancelotti has also spoken to the player, confirming that they trust him for next season in the team, which has gone a long way in helping convince the player.

The Italian gaffer also spoke about the Spanish defender’s contract situation after the game against Athletic Club yesterday, saying:

“Asensio, Nacho and Ceballos? We have explained them their roles. The club have offered them renewals. Asensio has preferred to leave, Ceballos and Nacho are still thinking about it.” 

While a centre-back by trade, Nacho has played across the defence for Madrid continuously, including putting shifts at left-back, right-back, and even centre-back.

His departure would have probably pushed Madrid to sign another defender, especially since they are considering selling Ferland Mendy if a good offer arrives.

Regardless of that, though, Madrid are moving to sign Alphonso Davies, and have already made initial contacts with the player. Bayern Munich have not rejected their advances.

Further, the los blancos management have already met with Davies’ entourage twice, cementing their interest in the Canadian ace.
