Friday night saw a domino of events that blew open Kylian Mbappe’s future back into the forefront. Paris Saint-Germain dropped a bomb on the player’s future, and the pressure is now on the youngster to make a swift decision, with Real Madrid waiting in the wings.

The Parisiens officially announced the squad travelling to Japan for the club’s pre-season campaign last night and made the bold decision to omit Mbappe altogether. French outlet L’Equipe go as far as to state that the club’s future without the superstar has begun.

Fabrizio Romano sheds more light on the situation, stating that the French club officially see Mbappe as saleable from today.

They feel the star wants to leave on a free transfer to Real Madrid in 2024, especially given that he did not revert to the club after Nasser Al-Khelaifi’s public statement and deadline.

The Italian journalist adds that PSG feel betrayed by their main player and are convinced that he has an agreement with Real Madrid. They do not want to be paralysed by any single player’s demands.

Mbappe is thus for sale, and his immediate departure is the priority for Les Parisiens. They will not veto any club and are open to selling him to any institution that puts up the money they demand.

All eyes are now on the PSG outcast. It is clear that he will not play for his current employers again until he announces an official decision between two options – to renew and stay or leave immediately. A free transfer next summer is not an option for PSG.

The melodrama for the winger’s transfer has dragged on for too long now, but this could be the turning point. Considering that the player cannot train until he puts an end to his silence, one can expect Mbappe to make an official announcement in the days to come.

Whether or not that decision favours Real Madrid now remains to be seen.

Real Madrid missed out on the signing of Leny Yoro after deciding not to match Manchester United’s offer for the 18-year-old defender.

With the French prodigy now on his way to the Premier League, Los Blancos are assessing their options before deciding whether to sign a new centre-back or not.

As things stand, the reigning champions of Spain and Europe seem to be leaning towards relying on their existing options rather than going into the market.

Jesus Vallejo unlikely to leave

As such, MARCA reports that the likelihood of Jesus Vallejo leaving the club have now significantly reduced.

Indeed, the 27-year-old out-of-favour defender now appears more and more likely to continue at Real Madrid beyond this summer.

Vallejo returned to the Santiago Bernabeu after finishing his loan stint at Granada during which he hardly played due to injury and fitness woes.

As such, reports suggested that Carlo Ancelotti & co. were not planning on counting on him next season, even though he was handed a new shirt number recently.

But with the Leny Yoro operation collapsing and Real Madrid not keen on recruiting anyone from the market at this point, the Spanish ace is now unlikely to leave the club.

With David Alaba still sidelined, Antonio Rudiger and Eder Militao will start the new season as the first-choice centre-back pairing and Vallejo will serve as the backup while Aurelien Tchouameni will also be an option.

Vallejo, for his part, wanted to stay put and see out his contract which expires in 2025. And, as things stand, it appears that the player will get his wish.
