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 youngster Mario Martin finds himself at an interesting juncture in his fledgeling career.

The midfield prospect is well-liked at the club after impressing with Castilla in the past two seasons while first-team manager Carlo Ancelotti is also an admirer of the player.

While Martin seems to have reached the end of his cycle in Castilla, a spot in the first-team squad is not necessarily available right away, unless Dani Ceballos ends up leaving.

Plenty of interest in Mario Martin

Now, The Athletic reports that Mario Martin is a player in demand in La Liga with half the teams in the Spanish top flight eager to sign him up this summer.

As has already been reported, Real Valladolid and RCD Espanyol are understood to have shown a strong interest in the 20-year-old midfield talent.

However, it appears that there are a plethora of other clubs in La Liga who would be happy to sign Martin from Real Madrid in the current transfer window.

Martin wants to stay

But, the report states Martin is leaning towards staying put at Real Madrid at this point even though the prospects of regular first-team minutes are highly unlikely.

The 20-year-old, who has made four senior appearances for Los Blancos thus far, has a contract that runs until the summer of 2026.

Real Madrid, for their part, are not necessarily ruling out a sale provided a good offer comes along.

Even if they do part ways with Martin, the Spanish capital club would very much likely insert an affordable buyback clause as they have been doing in recent times for departing youth players.
