With each passing day, speculations surrounding the future of Kylian Mbappe continue to grow as the player and PSG are at a total impasse, with Real Madrid watching closely from the sidelines.

The 24-year-old has made it clear that he does not wish to renew his contract beyond 2024 but wants to stay at the club this summer.

However, PSG have been firm on their stance that the 2018 FIFA World Cup winner must leave this summer or sign a new contract as there is no way they will lose him on a free transfer next year.

Now, journalist Ramon Alvarez is reporting that the Ligue 1 champions are putting immense pressure on Mbappe to leave right away, which will come as a boost for Real Madrid in their pursuit of the French forward.

The report from the journalist adds that Mbappe has already turned down three new contract offers from PSG and as such the club are intent on offloading him right away.

In fact, Les Parisiens do not want the former AS Monaco ace to do the pre-season with the rest of the squad and want him out of the club by next week. PSG also believe that Mbappe will be joining Real Madrid if he does indeed leave the club.

So, they are applying pressure on the 24-year-old to accept their decision and leave. Furthermore, the attacker’s latest interview, where he appeared to slam PSG has not gone down too well with some of his teammates or the club president Nasser Al-Khelaifi.

As such, things should accelerate over his departure in the coming days, with Real Madrid likely to benefit from this and sign their top target, potentially for a fee of over €200 million.

In a recent report by Manu de Juan in AS, it has been revealed that Arda Guler is expected to play a significant role for Carlo Ancelotti’s Real Madrid next season, despite ongoing rumours connecting him to Liverpool

Currently, Carlo Ancelotti has five key players listed on the club’s official website: Kylian Mbappe, Vinícius Jr, Rodrygo, Brahim Diaz, and Endrick. However, Guler is an additional player who is likely to make a substantial impact next season.

In fact, it is said that the Turkish teenager is set to be Ancelotti’s versatile player for the 2024-25 season. His adaptability is a major asset as he can play in various positions, including as a central or attacking midfielder, a right winger, or even as a forward. 

His recent performance in the European Championship highlighted his capabilities, where he scored one of the tournament’s standout goals. This versatility makes him a valuable addition to the squad.

Ancelotti has clear plans for Guler

Ancelotti has indicated in the past that he sees Guler’s primary role as a forward. However, the coach is not hesitant to use him in a midfield role when needed.

This flexibility will be crucial, especially with changes in the team’s lineup. With Toni Kroos having left and Aurelien Tchouameni expected to play more as a centre-back, there will be a need for additional midfield options.

Despite his potential, there are concerns about Guler’s physicality and his ability to cover extensive ground on the field. Ancelotti has acknowledged these limitations, noting that Guler needs to improve his defensive positioning and overall physical endurance. 

The coach has mentioned that Guler is already working on these areas, aiming to overcome these challenges.

Meanwhile, during one of the celebrations at Cibeles, Ancelotti hinted at Guler’s increased involvement in the upcoming season. He described Guler as a “very interesting boy,” suggesting that the young player will have more opportunities to showcase his skills. 

This implies that fans can expect to see a lot more of Guler in action, making him a player to watch closely in the next season.
