Journalist Julien Laurens has affirmed that in the last 48 hours, Paris Saint-Germain contacted Real Madrid target Kylian Mbappe to renew his ongoing deal.

As part of the new contract, the Ligue 1 side once again told him they would include a clause that would allow him to leave next year for the club of his choice, but the player rejected the offer right away.

The journalist adds that even if PSG offer Mbappe all the money in the world, he would not accept their offer as the forward has already made up his mind.

Laurens relayed the entire situation by revealing that PSG approach the player by saying, 

“Why don’t you extend and we put a clause in that extension that says that in the summer of 2024, we will give you a guaranteed selling clause for a certified amount of money so that you can go to whatever club you want to,” said Laurens to ESPN FC.

“He said no to that and that’s the second time they have tried to put that in his contract and he said no. So there is still a power struggle between him and the club, and that’s another step towards trying to unsettle him,” he added.

Where are Real Madrid in this?

A lot has been said about Real Madrid’s participation in this entire saga. Of late, it has been learned that they are ready to come up with an offer of €180 million if Mbappe admits he wants to leave PSG.

It is also believed that Madrid have already started internal preparation for the Frenchman’s arrival. This reportedly includes video clips and footage for Mbappe’s presentation.

The team is following a similar procedure that they did last year when the forward took a sudden U-turn and ended up signing an extension with PSG instead.

This time around, however, Mbappe has burnt all the bridges with PSG and there is absolutely no way back.

Real Madrid rising star suffered against Atletico due to veteran forward’s absence, says Simeone

Real Madrid’s 3-1 defeat to Atletico Madrid was not the first time were in trouble this season. In fact, the Merengues have gone behind early in almost every league game so far.

However, the difference on Sunday night was that they never really mounted a comeback. More importantly, Jude Bellingham did not come good, for the first time.

Simeone unravels the mystery

A jubilant Diego Simeone spoke to the media after his side downed Real Madrid by three goals to one and spoke about a plethora of topics. 

Interestingly, he commented specifically on why Bellingham did not have an impact at Civitas Metropolitano, citing the absence of Joselu as a key factor.

“No, the spaces were reduced and I think that Joselu’s lack of presence left him with fewer chances to get there, when he takes advantage of Joselu’s aerial play. We controlled him better, he’s extraordinary,” he said, as quoted by AS.

He even called out the refereeing on the night and insisted that the Real Madrid star-boy should have seen red for his late tackle on Angel Correa, saying:

“It looked like a sending-off to me live, it was a hard leg up, with Angelito hitting the ball.”

Ironically, he defended his defender Jose Maria Gimenez for an equally threatening tackle on the night.

“A bad foul, it’s a yellow card because it goes sideways. Bellingham goes from the front and I think it’s a bit more,” he stated paradoxically.

No time to lament

The game at Civitas Metropolitano may not have gone Real Madrid’s way. Yet, it is good for the Merengues to taste defeat early and see the gaping holes in their dynamic.

Carlo Ancelotti admitted in his press conference that he bore the lion’s share of the fault for Sunday’s loss and that he would have done things differently if given the chance.

“Maybe I could have done it better. It’s pretty clear. When the team doesn’t do what it has to do, it’s my responsibility,” he stated.

Nevertheless, Los Blancos have a hectic schedule ahead with two games in the next five days and a UCL fixture against Napoli next week. With Vinicius Jr back, one hopes they find their mojo once again.
