Real Madrid are back in pursuit of Kylian Mbappe after it has been reported that the Frenchman is ready to leave Paris Saint-Germain.

He has notified the club, via letter, that he has no intention to renew his contract beyond 2024, which has forced them to put him on the market to recoup some of the €180 million they spend on him in 2018.

Naturally, the first team interested in his services have been Real Madrid. However, it seems they will have to cough up a massive €150 million to sign him this summer, as reported by Julien Laurens.

PSG are tired of the Mbappe saga every summer and have decided to let him go this time around finally, but reports have suggested that they will be ready to sell him to any club but Real Madrid.

There are other teams in the race for Mbappe, including Liverpool. They have been long-term admirers of the player, but will likely sit behind Real Madrid when it comes to his priority order.

In the past, Madrid had offered €200 million for Mbappe’s signature, but were turned down by the Parisian outfit. The player ended up signing a renewal on, at the time, the biggest contract in football history, but has no intention to continue in Ligue 1 beyond 2024.

However, there is one apparent problem in Madrid’s pursuit of Mbappe. The Frenchman prefers to play off the left-wing, moving into no. 9 areas.

Los Blancos already have one of the best player in the world in Vinicius Jr as their left-winger. The question then becomes, is the disparity between Vini and Mbappe enough to warrant a €150 million price tag?

Real Madrid usurped the top spot in the La Liga standings from arch-rivals FC Barcelona as they defeated Girona 3-0 away at Estadi Montilivi.

It was a fine performance from Carlo Ancelotti’s men against Michel’s side, with the returning Jude Bellingham leading the way for his team.

After being benched against Las Palmas in midweek, the England international returned to the starting XI today and turned in yet another Man of the Match display for Real Madrid.

It all started with Joselu opening the scoring just 15 minutes into the game, with Bellingham assisting the goal with a special, outside-of-the-boot pass from the left side, bringing back memories of Luka Modric doing something similar a few years ago.

Talking about that special pass, Bellingham said: “I’ve been watching Luka every day for months. I just want to be creative. It took the pressure off us at the start.”

On the match and the result, the 20-year-old stated that it was a good day across the board for Real Madrid, as he said: “It was an important win. They were doing very well. We made a statement of intent to La Liga. Three goals, a clean sheet….”

It has been a truly remarkable start to life at Real Madrid for Bellingham and expressing how he feels to play for the Merengues, he exclaimed:

“I feel very good. I have freedom of movement and I’m enjoying football. Whenever I put on this shirt I always try to do my best.”

Apart from assisting Joselu’s opener, Bellingham also got his name on the scoresheet in the second period. Talking about his goal, the wonderkid said:

“It wasn’t a very good finish. I could have scored some more, but the important thing is the victory.”

The strike meant that Bellingham now has seven goals and two assists across all competitions for Real Madrid. Reflecting on his brilliant start, he said:

“It’s a good start, not bad. I would like to continue on this path and I won’t always score or assist, but I will always give my best.”

Bellingham’s celebration has been a huge hit, with kids in school, players from other clubs, and many others mimicking it. When asked how his special celebration originated, he replied:

“I don’t know where I first celebrated. I think it was with Birmingham. It’s an inspiration to see kids doing it in schools. It’s a wonderful thing.”
