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.

Premier League club close the doors on defender’s exit amid Real Madrid interest

Back in March, news surfaced that Real Madrid and Manchester United were both interested in signing Everton defender Jarrad Branthwaite

The competition for his signature was fierce, but United eventually shifted their attention to another target, Leny Yoro, leaving Real Madrid without a new defender. 

Despite their interest, Everton’s high valuation of Branthwaite at €80 million made both clubs reconsider their pursuit.

According to a report from The Athletic, Everton’s stance on Branthwaite has now solidified. They are not entertaining any offers for the defender. 

Real Madrid, in reality, never made an official bid. They were merely observing from a distance as Everton turned down two substantial offers from Manchester United. 

The highest of these offers was close to €60 million, including both fixed and variable components, yet it still fell short of Everton’s expectations.

Everton want nothing less than €80 million

These deals have set a precedent, making Everton firm in their demand of £65-70 million, equivalent to over €82 million, for Branthwaite. Despite his high valuation, Everton is adamant about retaining him, considering him a crucial part of their future plans.

Complicating matters, Everton are facing significant financial difficulties. The club has been in a precarious financial position, confirmed by recent reports. 

The Friedkin Group, owners of Roma and potential new buyers for Everton, have halted negotiations with the club’s current owner, Farhad Moshiri. 

They have accumulated over €600 million in debt, and the uncertainty surrounding its management has only worsened the situation.

In light of these financial troubles, selling Branthwaite for a substantial amount could have provided a much-needed financial boost for Everton. However, the club is reluctant to part with one of their most promising young talents. 

They view Branthwaite as a vital component of their long-term strategy and are unwilling to sell him at a discount, even in their current economic state.

At Goodison Park, the decision to keep Branthwaite despite lucrative offers is a clear statement of their commitment to building a strong future. The young defender is seen as a key asset, and Everton’s refusal to sell him underscores their belief in his potential. 

The club’s financial struggles continue to pose challenges, but they are determined to navigate these difficulties without compromising their long-term vision.
