Speaking at the unveiling of new manager Luis Enrique, PSG president Nasser Al-Khelaifi has provided an update on the future of Real Madrid target Kylian Mbappe.

The 24-year-old’s future has been the talk of the town after he confirmed that he will not renew his contract beyond 2024. Real Madrid have been keeping close tabs on the situation without making a concrete move as of yet as they wait for the situation to become clear.

Mbappe, for his part, has maintained that he does not want to leave PSG this summer. The club, though, are insistent that the only way he stays put for next season is if he renews his deal. If not, the 24-year-old will be sold in the current transfer window.

And now Al-Khelaifi has doubled down on that point, stating that the thought of Mbappe leaving the club for free is unfathomable and that the only way he remains at the club beyond the summer is if he renews.

“Kylian will not leave for free. If he wants to stay, he must renew,” Al-Khelaifi said (h/t MARCA). “Mbappe leaving for free? Impossible.”

“Our position is strong. Mbappé will not leave for free. Impossible. The best player in the world leaving for free is not happening,” the PSG president added.

Further underlining the stance of the Ligue 1 champions, Al-Khelaifi said: “If Mbappé wants to stay, he stays. But he has to renew. We can’t let him leave for free and that’s what he promised the club. If he changes his mind, it’s not my fault.”

With PSG not willing to move from their position, Mbappe will now have to change his – either decide to forego the loyalty bonus that he is to receive next year and leave now or sign a new contract with the French champions.

Real Madrid will be closely watching the situation as they are certain about signing Mbappe. The only unknown variable in the equation remains is the ‘when’.

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.
