PSG midfield mainstay wants Real Madrid transfer, but club not interested
Paris Saint-Germain are bracing themselves for a mass defection in the coming summer. Following the club’s continued underachievement, they are running the risk of losing key players at the end of the season.
The list is led by Lionel Messi, who has been closely linked with a fabled return to Camp Nou. Neymar, too, is likely to leave Parc des Princes, while Real Madrid have reportedly targeted a move for Kylian Mbappe, just a year after missing out on his services.
A recent report from RMC Sport now claims even Marco Verratti could end up departing Parc des Princes at the end of the season.
The French news outlet suggests Verratti is unhappy at PSG and has not hidden his intention to embark on a new adventure elsewhere. His priority is to join Real Madrid this summer, as he has a good relationship with coach Carlo Ancelotti.
Formerly of Pescara, Verratti has been a part of the PSG squad since 2012. During his 11-year stay at the club, he has featured in over 400 competitive matches, winning numerous accolades in the process.
But after PSG’s repeated failures in the Champions League, it appears the midfielder is seeking a new adventure, with Real Madrid emerging as his desired destination.
However, as per the report, the Spanish giants have closed the door on Verratti. They are not interested in signing the Italian international for now, as the club are putting all their resources into the Jude Bellingham pursuit.
The Englishman is one of Real Madrid’s priorities heading into the summer transfer window. Although they have the approval of the player, Borussia Dortmund are likely to hold out for a hefty sum for the services of the youngster, thereby ruling out Real Madrid’s prospects of signing another top-quality midfielder this summer.

Real Madrid have drawn a comprehensive roadmap for the upcoming summer transfer window and the club’s squad planning ahead of the new season, but as far as the club’s ambition is concerned, the objective is to sign Kylian Mbappe in 2024.
Real Madrid are expected to revolve everything around the idea of signing the PSG superstar next year, reports Alfredo Matilla and Sergio Santos.
As per the two Spanish journalists, Florentino Perez is envisioning a Real Madrid strikeforce comprising Rodrygo, Vinicius Junior, and Mbappe.
The report points out that Real Madrid view the Frenchman as a realistic target as they expect him not to accept the option of extending his contract at PSG until 2025 next year. His fallout with the PSG has been already well-documented this year.
With Les Parisien seemingly failing to live up to Mbappe’s ambition, it could only be a matter of time before he opts to leave the club. To that end, Real Madrid will be prepared, especially at the end of next season.
Meanwhile, Real Madrid are starting to lose hope of signing Erling Haaland, because of the striker’s excellent relationship with Pep Guardiola which could keep him at Man City beyond 2024. Mbappe, therefore, has emerged as the top target for Los Blancos.
The potential strikeforce comprising Vinicius, Rodrygo and Mbappe could see Real Madrid operating in a 4-3-3 formation, with Mbappe playing at the centre. It must be noted that the club are also involved in the pursuit of Kai Havertz.
The German could be an intriguing addition to this strikeforce – potentially making Real Madrid one of the most feared attacking sides in Europe. However, it remains to be seen whether or not Los Blancos can actually manage to pull the signing of Mbappe or Havertz in the near future.
