According to a report from L’Equipe, PSG have requested a meeting with Kylian Mbappe and his entourage ASAP as they seek a solution to his situation at the earliest.

Mbappe’s transfer situation is dominating the headlines once again. The 24-year-old has refused to sign a new contract with the club, with his current one expiring next year. At the same time, he does not wish to leave this summer either.

PSG, though, have been firm in their stance – either he signs a renewal or leaves this summer. Nasser Al-Khelaifi, president of the club, made it clear earlier this week that there is no way Mbappe will leave the club for free.

Real Madrid are standing on the sidelines and watching the situation closely. The Merengues are keen on signing the 24-year-old and are growing optimistic about their chances, especially after Al-Khelaifi’s statements.

The 2018 FIFA World Cup winner, though, is reluctant to give up the loyalty bonus that he would be earning if he stays at PSG for one more year. The forward and his entourage want at least part of it paid for them to consider an exit, but the Ligue 1 champions are not in favour of it.

As such, PSG have requested a meeting with Mbappe so that they can find a solution to the situation. Real Madrid, for their part, will not make a move for the Frenchman until he resolves the matter with his current employers.

PSG have also sent Mbappe a letter reprimanding him for making the matter of him not wanting to renew public when he could have handled the matter privately. They also believe that there is no way they can keep the attacker in the team without renewing.

So, Mbappe and PSG will now have to reach an agreement that satisfies both parties, even as Real Madrid watch on with the hope of signing him.

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.
