According to a report from Defensa Central, Paris Saint-Germain president Nasser al-Khelaifi is seeking to retaliate against Real Madrid for losing Kylian Mbappe by targeting their player, Ferland Mendy.

Mendy, who has had an impressive season, has caught the attention of PSG. His contract with Real Madrid runs until 2025, but there is uncertainty about his future with the club. 

This comes at a time when Real Madrid’s negotiations with Alphonso Davies have taken an unexpected turn.

Real Madrid are currently focused on finishing their season on a high note, with just three games remaining, two in La Liga and the UEFA Champions League final. 

They have already secured the league title two weeks ago and are now preparing for the European final against Borussia Dortmund on June 1. If they win, it will be their sixth UCL title in the last ten years under the management of Carlo Ancelotti.

Despite the on-field success, the Real Madrid management is also busy off the field. They are considering securing Mendy for the long term after his stellar performances this season. 

It is to be noted that Mendy has been a key player, starting 29 of 33 games, and has become crucial for both Ancelotti and the club’s board. This has led to a halt in their pursuit of Alphonso Davies after months of negotiations.

However, Mendy’s representatives are uncertain about his future at Real Madrid. With his inclusion in Didier Deschamps’ squad for the upcoming Euro Cup, Real Madrid anticipate that his value might increase, especially considering he is now 29 years old.

As for PSG, they seem poised to take advantage of this situation. They are looking to lure Mendy to their team, much like they did with former Real Madrid players Sergio Ramos and Marco Asensio. 

Al-Khelaifi’s interest in Mendy is seen as a form of revenge for Real Madrid’s successful acquisition of Mbappe, but it is unlikely that Madrid will sanction the sale.

Real Madrid bid Toni Kroos an emotional farewell toward the end of last season, as the German midfielder opted not to pursue continuity in the Spanish capital and instead ride off into the sunset.

However, as the summer transfer window looms large, it appears the German maestro will not be the only veteran hitting the exit door for Los Blancos.

Indeed, Nacho Fernandez’s future continues to be up in the air, as his Real Madrid contract is set to expire in a few days.

Why Nacho is mulling over a departure

The Real Madrid centre-back has been reported to have received a lucrative two-year offer from Al Ittihad, who would nearly quadruple his current salary.

Aside from the appealing financial package from Saudi Arabia, according to AS, Nacho is inclined to leave for other reasons.

For one, the Spanish defender believes that under Ancelotti, his position on the team has not evolved.

Even though he had an impressive season, missing important games like the league Clasico at Santiago Bernabeu and the first leg of the Champions League quarterfinals against Manchester City has caused him to reevaluate his future.

This season, he has participated in 45 of the 55 games, missing just three because of suspensions.

Yet, his future at the club appears doubtful owing to the return of Rafa Marin from loan, the presence of Antonio Rudiger, and the return of Eder Militao and David Alaba from injury.

Moreover, Nacho’s thoughts have also been impacted by the persistent speculations that Real Madrid is interested in signing Leny Yoro. In the event that Nacho departs, Yoro might join either this summer.

As such, given the competition in defence next season and the reported wage hike at Al Ittihad, it is likely that Nacho will end up departing the Merengues.
