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’.

According to a report from Mundo Deportivo, Real Madrid have decided to reactivate the operation to sign Alphonso Davies from Bayern Munich.

The Spanish football giant has shown interest in the Canadian star for quite some time but has yet to seal the deal. Now, following the conclusion of the Copa America, Real Madrid are reigniting their efforts to sign Davies.

Before the Copa America began, Davies mentioned that he would postpone any decisions about his future until after the tournament. 

With the competition now over, his future remains a hot topic for both Real Madrid and Bayern Munich, who are keenly monitoring the situation.

Real Madrid will not meet Bayern’s demand

Real Madrid are hesitant to meet Bayern Munich’s asking price of €50 million for Davies, whose current contract runs until 2025. 

Negotiations between Bayern Munich and Davies’ agent have been ongoing, but they haven’t reached an agreement. Davies is reportedly seeking a significant salary increase, rumoured to be around €20 million per season, which Bayern Munich has declined.

In light of this stalemate, Bayern Munich’s management has decided to withdraw their renewal offer, risking the possibility of Davies leaving for free when his contract expires in 2025. 

This development has opened the door for Real Madrid, who are preparing to make an offer that could potentially satisfy Bayern Munich’s demands.

Davies is likely to leave

In Germany, the consensus is that Davies is likely to leave Bayern Munich this summer, with Real Madrid being the most probable destination. The situation is fluid, but it appears that the Spanish club is in a strong position to acquire the talented Canadian defender.

For Real Madrid, securing a player of Davies’ calibre would be a significant boost to their squad. The club is known for its aggressive transfer strategies, and bringing in a player like Davies aligns with their goals.

As the summer transfer window progresses, the focus will remain on the negotiations between Real Madrid and Bayern Munich. 

Both clubs have a lot at stake, and the outcome will depend on their ability to find common ground regarding the transfer fee and Davies’ salary demands.
