According to a fresh report from Le Parisien, PSG have told Kylian Mbappe that they expect a decision from him over his future immediately amid links to Real Madrid.
The Mbappe transfer saga is back on centre stage heading into the summer window after the 24-year-old confirmed that he does not intend to renew his contract with the Parisian giants beyond 2024.
As such, he could leave PSG as a free agent next summer, and Real Madrid had plans to sign him then. But, the Ligue 1 champions are against that scenario and have told the French international that either he renews his contract or leaves this summer itself.
Mbappe, though, has remained firm on his stance that he wishes to stay in Paris for the next season.
But, club chairman Nasser Al-Khelaifi is not entertaining that possibility whatsoever. His stance on the matter has not changed – either Mbappe signs a new contract or leaves immediately. He has informed the forward’s agent and mother, Fayza Lamari, that the sooner the saga ends the better for everyone.
And Les Parisiens are expecting a decision from the 2018 FIFA World Cup winner soon, with everything now in his hands.
Real Madrid, for their part, have been monitoring the situation cautiously but with the hope of landing their top target this year itself. And if Mbappe relents his stance, Los Blancos could very well get their man.
PSG, for their part, value Mbappe at €200 million at least. But that figure should not be an issue for Real Madrid, who are understood to have the money ready for the superstar’s signing.
The ball is now in the player’s court now and it is up to him to decide whether he changes his current stance or not. PSG are firm that they will sell him if he does not renew and are expecting a decision soon.
As such, there may be an ending to the soap opera soon – one which might end up in favour of Real Madrid.
Real Madrid very happy with future star Endrick, eagerly awaiting his arrival in 2024 – Romano
Real Madrid’s attacking unit has been crippled by the loss of Karim Benzema earlier in the summer, which was followed by the loss of Vinicius Jr due to injury.
Although Vinicius has returned, there is much left to be desired from the Madrid frontline as we progress through to the season.
Real Madrid, though, are waiting on the arrival of Endrick. The young Brazilian is set to join the Real Madrid squad in the summer of 2024 when he turns 18.
Real Madrid impressed by Endrick
Endrick has already started his preparation for his pending move to Santiago Bernabeu, having performed exceptionally well in his native Brazil this year.
The youngster is constantly working on his game, in order to further improve himself as an attacker. It has left Real Madrid quite happy and eager for his arrival, reports Fabrizio Romano.
The journalist claims that Real Madrid have been keeping close tabs on everything Endrick has been doing, on and off the pitch, at Palmeiras.
And they have received very good reports on the 17-year-old, with the club impressed by how he is putting efforts to improve himself both performance-wise and in other facets.
Despite there being some question marks over his performances, the teenage forward is starting to showcase his potential, having scored five goals in five starts for Palmeiras.
Endrick also learning new languages
Endrick is not only just working on his performance. In fact, the Brazilian is also learning other languages in order to quickly settle into life in Spain.
The youngster can speak Portuguese, but he may have to master Spanish during his time at Santiago Bernabeu.
As mentioned earlier, Endrick can already speak Portuguese, which should go a long way in helping him team up with fellow Brazilians Vinicius Jr and Rodrygo.
Even Eder Militao can speak Portuguese, which should make it easier for Endrick to adapt to life in Spain, at least for the next year or so.
