According to a recent report from Andres Onrubia Ramos (h/t Madrid Zone) Ligue 1 champions Paris Saint-Germain will consider selling Real Madrid target Kylian Mbappe this summer if they sign Randal Kolo Muani and Bradley Barcola.

However, it is still going to take a good enough offer for PSG to consider entering negotiations. But for what it is worth, the French champions are actually preparing for Mbappe’s exit.

PSG preparing for all scenarios

PSG have already made quite a few offensive signings, with Marco Asensio, Goncalo Ramos, Ousmane Dembele, and Lee Kang-in all arriving this summer. At the same time, the team from the French capital is seeking more attacking reinforcement.

For that, their interest in Kolo Muani is well known. They have already seen a bid rejected by Eintracht Frankfurt for the 24-year-old, but a second bid is expected soon.

The offer is said to be worth €80 million plus add-ons. The total price of the operation could go up to €95 million.

PSG are said to be hopeful of striking a deal this time around as personal terms with the forward have already been agreed and this could pave the way for Mbappe to leave the team.

Barcola, on the other hand, was a subject of an offer of €35 million with bonuses from the capital club, but Lyon want more money.

Where does this leave Mbappe?

Recent reports have suggested that despite the relaxing relationship, PSG have still informed the player to either sign a contract, which will have release clauses for the next two years, or leave the team with immediate effect.

In case the player publicly admits that he wants to leave this summer, something that he has not done so far, the Ligue 1 side will want €250 million.

But Madrid will not offer more than €175 million including bonuses, which would be paid over four years.

The opening offer from the Merengues would not exceed €130 million either. In any case, the negotiations are expected to have an ending only towards the final days of the market.

Sunday night was a disappointing one for Real Madrid as they succumbed to a 3-1 defeat to arch-rivals Atletico Madrid in the Madrid derby at the Civitas Metropolitano.

The Merengues suffered their first defeat of the 2023/24 season as former striker Alvaro Morata scored a brace for the Rojiblancos while Antoine Griezmann was also on target.

Real Madrid might be feeling aggrieved by some of the calls made by the referee on the night but they were just not good enough to secure all three points at the Metropolitano.

There had been question marks about the team selection made by the manager for the derby against Atletico Madrid.

After all, the Italian opted to bench Joselu from the starting XI to bring in Luka Modric and shift the tactics.

Aurelien Tchouameni was also left out despite being one of the team’s strongest performers this season with Toni Kroos being preferred.

The Real Madrid hierarchy wishes for the manager to trust the next-gen midfield for the big games but Ancelotti’s selection indicated that he is still not ready to do so.

Despite there being some differences, the board retains full confidence in Ancelotti.

Ancelotti accepts blame for defeat

It was a disappointing performance from Real Madrid in their biggest test of the 2023/24 season so far and speaking after the match, manager Ancelotti accepted the blame for the outcome.

“Maybe I could have done it better. It’s pretty clear. When the team doesn’t do what it has to do, it’s my responsibility. It’s my fault,” Ancelotti said.

With the game done and dusted, Real Madrid now turn their focus towards producing a strong comeback when they face Las Palmas later this week.
