As we progress further into the season, all eyes are on Kylian Mbappe as he looks to take a decision on his future.

The forward’s contract at Parc des Princes expires at the end of the season, meaning he is eligible to sign a pre-contract agreement with Real Madrid right now.

Many expect Mbappe to sign for Real Madrid on a free transfer, amid growing pressure from the Spanish giants.

Mbappe, for his part, has remained tight-lipped on his future. But in a recent interaction, his PSG teammate Gianluigi Donnarumma has opened up about the player’s future.

“Kylian will make the best decision, he always gives his best in every training session, in every game, we are proud to have him here and we hope to have him here for a long time,” Donnarumma said (h/t MARCA).

The former AC Milan goalkeeper has been a teammate of Mbappe since 2021 when he joined PSG on a free transfer. Donnarumma has since developed an excellent relationship with Mbappe.

The goalkeeper’s comments came shortly after a 2-0 win over Real Sociedad in the UEFA Champions League. Mbappe notably scored the opener, helping the French giants remain on top of the game from the early proceedings.

Donnarumma’s hopes of having Mbappe in the team, though, appear to be dissipating. The forward is more likely to join Real Madrid with each passing day.

In fact, in the same Real Sociedad game, a Real Madrid representative was present, watching Mbappe closely. This serves as another indicator of Mbappe’s seemingly inevitable move to Santiago Bernabeu this summer.

‘Will have to put my feelings aside’ – Bellingham on facing Borussia Dortmund in UCL final

It has been a special debut season for Jude Bellingham at Real Madrid.

Since arriving from Borussia Dortmund in a deal worth €103 million, plus add-ons, last summer, the 20-year-old sensation has become an instant hit at the Santiago Bernabeu.

Despite his form declining a bit in the second half of the season, Bellingham has racked up returns of 23 goals and 12 assists from 41 games in all competitions.

A special game for Bellingham

Having won La Liga and the Spanish Super Cup, Bellingham now has the chance to end the season in the most epic ways possible by lifting the UEFA Champions League, against his former club, in his homeland.

As such, Saturday’s UCL final at Wembley, against Dortmund, is set to be a special one for the young phenom, and he acknowledged as much during an interview today.

“It’s a very special game for me but I’ll have to put feelings aside. It’s been a great season, they’ve made me feel very welcome and I’ve enjoyed playing football with them,” said Bellingham, as quoted by Mundo Deportivo.

When asked if he had been in touch with any of his former Dortmund teammates ahead of Saturday’s showpiece event, Bellingham replied:

“I’ve spoken to Sancho, we said we’d meet there. He took me under his wing when I came to Dortmund and that meant a lot to me.”

On how Real Madrid can win the game

Earlier today, Carlo Ancelotti was asked if he had sought any information from Bellingham to prepare a strategy to beat Borussia Dortmund.

The midfielder himself was asked by the media as to how Real Madrid can get past his former club at Wembley this weekend, to which he replied:

“To win we will have to play at our maximum level, if we are at that level it is very difficult for our opponents. The staff are sure to do a great job analysing Dortmund, I trust them 100 per cent.”

Stressing how it is a dream for him to win the UEFA Champions League with Real Madrid, Bellingham remarked:

“Winning the Champions League is the reason I’m here, I always dreamed of playing for this team, and this team is linked to the Champions League. I want to be a small part of their history.”
