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 set to play hosts to Sevilla this evening, in what could prove to be a critical match in the context of the title race.

Although Los Blancos hold a formidable lead at the top of the table, the club are coming on the back of a disappointing result against Rayo Vallecano.

Dropping more points against Sevilla tonight could prove to be costly, especially with Barcelona and Girona breathing down their necks.

Potential Real Madrid lineup vs Sevilla

As Real Madrid approach this crucial game, coach Carlo Ancelotti has to make several arrangements, especially with so many players ruled out either due to injury or suspension.

Defence

Starting from the goalkeeper position, Thibaut Courtois remains out, which means Andriy Lunin should continue in between the sticks, ahead of the unhappy Kepa Arrizabalaga.

In the right-back position, Ancelotti is likely to opt for Lucas Vazquez, as Dani Carvajal is suspended after picking up two yellow cards in the last game.

On a bright note, though, Antonio Rudiger is back and should return to central defence. He will be accompanied by Nacho Fernandez at the heart of Real Madrid’s four-man backline.

Elsewhere in defence, Ferland Mendy should continue to start ahead of Fran Garcia in the left-back position.

Midfield

Moving into midfield, Eduardo Camavinga has been ruled out due to suspension. However, Ancelotti does have a myriad of options in the middle of the park.

Aurelien Tchouameni should continue to operate in the number six position, just behind the two interior midfielders Toni Kroos and Federico Valverde.

Luka Modric is an option on the bench, should Ancelotti require more experience in the middle.

Attack

As for the attack, the Real Madrid frontline should be led by Brahim Diaz once again, even though he faces fierce competition from Joselu.

Vinicius Junior and Rodrygo, on the other hand, are guaranteed choices in the wide attacking spaces, though Ancelotti does have Arda Guler and Alvaro Rodriguez as potential alternatives.
