According to an update from Fabrizio Romano, Paris Saint-Germain will push Kylian Mbappe to decide his future this week. If the player fails to do so, the club will sethis price this week and commence negotiations with interested clubs anyway.

Les Parisiens‘ stance comes after the player’s repeated attempts to foil a prompt move away from the French capital. Mbappe demands to be paid a loyalty bonus before he leaves, but his club are understandably hesitant to pay such a large sum to a star set to leave.

PSG thus hope to put Mbappe under pressure with their latest step. After all, the winger has not yet made a final decision over his future. He will only communicate his intentions to the club once he is 100% sure.

Real Madrid have been monitoring the developments in France and are awaiting the green light from Mbappe over a departure. Needless to say, it will be up to PSG to bring the player to the exit door. It is them who stand to lose if he sees out his contract.

Los Blancos anticipate the player’s signing to cost over €200 million and are willing to pay that fee. The coming week will thus be critical on that front, especially considering the French side’s latest stance on negotiations.

While there has been no tangible development, it is clear that the hurdles in Mbappe’s move now appear easier to cross. With PSG reconciling to pay part of his bonus, the 24-year-old can have no further excuses to push for continuity.

The Frenchman could take part in PSG’s pre-season tour in Japan this month as things stand. Yet, with PSG wanting him to make a decision by the end of the week, there could be some development soon. The coming days will be critical.

Real Madrid out-of-favour defender now unlikely to leave the club

Real Madrid missed out on the signing of Leny Yoro after deciding not to match Manchester United’s offer for the 18-year-old defender.

With the French prodigy now on his way to the Premier League, Los Blancos are assessing their options before deciding whether to sign a new centre-back or not.

As things stand, the reigning champions of Spain and Europe seem to be leaning towards relying on their existing options rather than going into the market.

Jesus Vallejo unlikely to leave

As such, MARCA reports that the likelihood of Jesus Vallejo leaving the club have now significantly reduced.

Indeed, the 27-year-old out-of-favour defender now appears more and more likely to continue at Real Madrid beyond this summer.

Vallejo returned to the Santiago Bernabeu after finishing his loan stint at Granada during which he hardly played due to injury and fitness woes.

As such, reports suggested that Carlo Ancelotti & co. were not planning on counting on him next season, even though he was handed a new shirt number recently.

But with the Leny Yoro operation collapsing and Real Madrid not keen on recruiting anyone from the market at this point, the Spanish ace is now unlikely to leave the club.

With David Alaba still sidelined, Antonio Rudiger and Eder Militao will start the new season as the first-choice centre-back pairing and Vallejo will serve as the backup while Aurelien Tchouameni will also be an option.

Vallejo, for his part, wanted to stay put and see out his contract which expires in 2025. And, as things stand, it appears that the player will get his wish.
