Journalist Mohamed Bouhafsi has made an exciting claim that Paris Saint-Germain are considering the possibility of signing Real Madrid star Vinicius Jr.

PSG are currently dealing with the aftermath of losing their long-time star player Kylian Mbappe, who chose not to renew his contract with the team and instead signed with La Liga champions Real Madrid.

As a result, there is a significant gap in Luis Enrique’s attack strategy. To address this, Nasser Al-Khelaifi and his team are eyeing Vinicius Jr. as a potential replacement. 

“PSG are looking at Vinicius,” said Bouhafsi on RMC SPORT.

This move would not only be beneficial for PSG on the field but also serve as a form of payback to Real Madrid for their successful acquisition of Mbappe.

Problems at Real Madrid?

Recent reports suggest that Mbappe’s arrival at Real Madrid could affect the progress of either Rodrygo or Vinicius Jr even though Carlo Ancelotti is already working on certain blueprints

Both players prefer playing on the left side, and moving to the center of the field might decrease their effectiveness and comfort. This situation has led to speculation that Vinicius might consider a move away from Madrid.

It is to be noted that Real Madrid announced a contract renewal for Vinicius in October last year, extending his stay until 2027 with a release clause of €1 billion. 

Despite this, if Real Madrid were to consider selling him, they would likely demand at least €250 million, a fee that would make Vinicius the most expensive footballer in history, surpassing Neymar Jr.

Real Madrid will reject any offer for Vinicius

However, the poor relationship between Real Madrid and PSG makes such a deal almost impossible. 

Florentino Perez, Real Madrid’s president, would reject any offers from PSG, just as the Parisians did when he tried to sign Mbappe. This means the only way for PSG to acquire Vinicius Jr. would be to meet his release clause.

Despite these challenges, PSG remain interested. While Vinicius is happy and supported in Madrid and has no plans to leave, PSG will continue to monitor the situation, hoping for an opportunity to strengthen their attack.

Just in: Real Madrid’s defensive target picks up fresh injury

Real Madrid are in active negotiations with LOSC Lille for the transfer of Leny Yoro. After weeks of impasse, the club appear to have made some ground in the race to sign the Frenchman.

However, should the Yoro deal fall through in the coming weeks, Real Madrid have identified Lazio’s Mario Gila as the ideal alternative.

Formerly of RM Castilla, Gila currently plies his trade for Lazio and has emerged as a key defensive lynchpin for the Italian outfit, impressing onlookers with his technique and discipline.

Mario Gila picks up fresh injury

However, in a major development, it appears Mario Gila has picked up a fresh injury during training, reports Diario AS.

In the pre-season camp at Auronzo di Cadore, Gila appears to have fractured his left foot and could be out for several weeks.

Lazio confirmed the defender’s injury, stating, “Mario Gila underwent clinical and instrumental examinations which revealed a fracture of the phalanx of the big toe of his left foot, suffered during training.”

Gila has started taking the appropriate treatment and the extent of his injury will be known soon. However, as things stand, the defender could be out for at least the next few weeks.

What does this mean for Real Madrid?

Mario Gila’s fresh injury setback is sure to dwindle any hopes of a potential return to Real Madrid this summer.

In any case, Gila’s chances of returning to Santiago Bernabeu were slim given that Real Madrid have finally made some ground in the deal to sign top defensive target Leny Yoro.

Los Blancos, though, would have liked having someone like Gila available as an alternative, especially with LOSC Lille still demanding a fortune for the Frenchman.

Unfortunately, that might not be an option anymore, no thanks to Gila’s injury. The club, though, will keep a close eye on the Spaniard’s injury situation, knowing he could return to fitness before the end of the summer break.
