Earlier today, reports emerged confirming that Al Hilal had indeed made a shocking, world-record bid of €300 million to sign Real Madrid target Kylian Mbappe this summer.

Apart from being ready to shell out such a massive sum on the French superstar’s signing, the Saudi Arabian giants are also offering him an enormous contract worth €700 million per season. It would also have the provision for him to leave for Real Madrid in 2024.

Building on these claims, Fabrizio Romano is now reporting that PSG will undoubtedly accept the €300 million offer from Al Hilal as they are keen on resolving the Frenchman’s situation at the earliest possible.

As such, the feeling is that Real Madrid must act now and all eyes will be on club president Florentino Perez to see whether he makes a move or not.

The Italian journalist states that there is no conversation between Mbappe and Al Hilal at this point and that the forward wishes to continue in Europe and has his heart set on a move to Real Madrid only.

Mbappe has made it clear that he does not wish to leave this summer and is unwilling to renew his contract which extends next year. As such, he could leave for free next year, something that the Parisian giants are unwilling to accept.

The Ligue 1 champions are also convinced that Mbappe has a verbal agreement with Real Madrid over a free transfer next summer.

In order to avoid losing him for free, they have omitted him from the pre-season tour of Asia and have told him that the forward will not play for them again until he makes a decision on his future – either renew or leave.

Real Madrid have been monitoring the developments from a distance even though their interest in Mbappe is no secret. However, with other clubs, including Barcelona, seemingly making moves, Los Blancos will now have to act on their interest in the Frenchman.

Real Madrid had as many as five players representing them at the Copa America 2024 in the USA, with four of them being in the Brazil national team while another playing for Uruguay.

While Dani Carvajal enjoyed success with his national team at the Euro 2024, the story was much different for his Real Madrid teammates at the Copa America.

Indeed, it was a tournament to forget for the Brazilian contingent of Vinicius Jr., Rodrygo Goes, Eder Militao, and Endrick as they failed to go past the quarterfinals.

Meanwhile, Federico Valverde’s Uruguay finished with the bronze medal in the tournament seeing off Canada in the third-place playoffs via penalties after failing to defeat Colombia in the semi-finals.

Here’s how the five Real Madrid stars fared for their respective nations at the Copa America in the USA.

Brazil

Vinicius Jr.: 6/10

After enjoying an excellent season with Real Madrid, Vinicius was handed the responsibility of leading Brazil at the Copa America, especially with Neymar unavailable.

Kicking off with a dull showing against Costa Rica but showed up against Paraguay, scoring a fine brace to help his team to their only win of the tournament. A booking in the game against Colombia meant he sat out of the quarterfinal loss to Uruguay due to suspension.

Rodrygo: 5/10

An underwhelming showing from the Real Madrid forward who was handed the No. 10 shirt for the Copa America. Deployed as a centre-forward for most of his appearances at the tournament, Rodrygo hardly appeared like a threat in attack.

Eder Militao: 5/10

It was a mixed bag for Eder Militao at the Copa America as there were some indications of him returning to his best while he was also caught out at times and his passing from the back was sloppy. Guilty of missing his penalty in the shootout loss to Uruguay in the quarterfinal.

Endrick: 4/10

Bestowed the No. 9 shirt at the biggest tournament of his career so far at the age of just 17, Endrick failed to step up for Brazil.

A late substitute in each of the three group games, Endrick started in the quarterfinal against Uruguay in Vinicius’ absence but looked overawed by the occasion and failed to make any sort of impact.

Federico Valverde: 7/10

One of the stars of the show for Uruguay in their third-place run at the Copa America, Valverde was a consistent performer in midfield for La Celeste, putting in all-round solid displays while also catching the eye with his set-piece delivery.

The Real Madrid midfielder even scored a goal in the group game against Bolivia and dispatched his penalty in the shootout win against Canada in the third-place playoff.
