For the first time in months, Real Madrid are showing signs of urgency on the Kylian Mbappe transaction.
The Merengues had initially opted to wait for the player to begin talks, but are now taking solid steps towards sealing his arrival before La Liga begins.
PSG are aware that the player wishes to join no club other than the Galacticos, but continue to negotiate with other interested parties in the hope of putting pressure on Real Madrid.
According to reports from L’Equipe, the Parisians are awaiting a concrete offer from Chelsea for their young star.
PSG demand a high fee
Earlier this week, reports emerged claiming that Chelsea owner Todd Boehly had made contact with PSG president Nasser Al-Khelaifi to discuss a deal for Mbappe.
And now, Les Parisiens are expecting the Premier League heavy-hitters to come up with an offer for the 24-year-old World Cup winner.
It is well known that PSG are relatively powerless in Mbappe’s transfer or the fee it will bring. He may be one of the best in the business, but the fact that his contract runs down next summer brings the inevitable possibility of him leaving for free.
As it stands, PSG hope to get close to €250 million in exchange for Mbappe. Leaking reports of negotiations with Barcelona, Saudi Arabia and now Chelsea appears to be means of turning the heat on Los Blancos.
No more options on Mbappe’s table
Nasser Al-Khelaifi had given his star player an ultimatum to make his decision by the 31st of July – to leave immediately or to renew with PSG.
Now having past the deadline, Mbappe can no longer renew his deal in Paris and a departure is his only real option.
If he does not agree to an exit, the player could well face 12 months on the sidelines.
A move to Madrid this summer now appears increasingly possible but it will require Mbappe to take firm control of his future and begin serious talks with Florentino Perez.
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.
