Less than a month remains for the transfer window to officially open and teams have already begun making big-money signings.

The moves of Erling Haaland to Manchester City and Karim Adeyemi to Borussia Dortmund have shook the footballing world even before the commencement of the window. Yet, there is one transfer that can make bigger headlines than the Norwegian’s move to England.

Kylian Mbappe is one of football’s biggest stars and has single-handedly carried Paris-Saint Germain this season. The World Cup winner’s future in France is still undecided, with both Madrid and Paris being equal possibilities.

According to reports from Manu Sainz (h/t TheMadridZone), Nasser Al-Khelaifi was seen telling other members at the ECA meeting in Madrid that Mbappe would extend his contract with PSG.

The French club are said to have offered their star a renewal worth €50 million in order to keep him in Paris. However, there are reports that say that Mbappe prioritises a sporting project over money which could fuel his move to Real Madrid.

In 33 league games for PSG this season, the Frenchman has scored 24 goals and provided 15 assists. He averages two key passes per game and has created 21 big chances.

In the Champions League, he had ten goal contributions in just eight games this season and created three big chances.

After failing to win the prestigious competition despite having the worlds biggest names with his current team, one would expect the youngster to engineer a change in scenery.

Alongside Karim Benzema and Vinicius Jr at Real Madrid, Mbappe could be a part of one of football’s most devastating trios.

Real Madrid are looking towards a heavy splurge in the coming summer transfer window. After all, they do not even have another option given the sheer number of player departures already finalized.

Los Blancos have lost the services of Karim Benzema, Marco Asensio, Mariano Diaz, and Eden Hazard over the past week. While three of the four players predominantly featured on the bench, their presence in the squad gave Carlo Ancelotti’s side much-needed depth and a cushion of sorts.

The forward unit is, thus, the most prioritized department ahead of the transfer window. However, pieces are beginning to fall apart on other fronts and could potentially put the club in a difficult situation.

According to reports from Gianluca Di Marzio, Juventus are eyeing Lucas Vazquez and hope to sign him in the coming month. Contacts between the two parties have begun and the transfer fee discussed appears to be around the €6 million to €8 million ballpark given that he has just one year left on his contract.

The player, for his part, is willing to sign for the Italian giants given his relative lack of minutes at the Santiago Bernabeu. At 31 years of age, he understandably does not want to play a second-fiddle role.

Vasquez played part in 23 of Real Madrid’s 38 La Liga games last season, starting only on 12 occasions. Even in his few appearances, he averaged a mere 50 minutes per game.

The veteran completed the season with four goals and an assist to his name. Further, he averaged five defensive actions and a key pass in every game and feels hard done by his limited role.

Vazquez’s departure would place the club in a tricky situation as it would leave Real Madrid with only Dani Carvajal as a natural right-back option. Nacho Fernandez could, in theory, serve as the backup but a new signing for the position cannot be ruled out.
