Real Madrid believe Vinicius is a better player than Mbappe right now
Out of nowhere, reports had emerged recently linking Kylian Mbappe to a move to Santiago Bernabeu once again. The reports had come out of England, but the Spanish media has since trashed the speculations, suggesting the club have no intention to sign the player.
Real Madrid are reportedly not interested in paying a single euro to PSG. The relationship between the two clubs has completely collapsed, though the situation could change in 2024.
A recent report from MARCA has offered an update on the situation. The report points out how Real Madrid’s decision to not go after Mbappe is not motivated by ‘revenge’ but is rather a well-calculated sporting decision.
Indeed, Real Madrid are not in a position to afford Mbappe’s salary. The club also do not like Nasser Al-Khelaifi and what PSG represent as a club. But more importantly, Real Madrid view Vinicius Junior, with all due respect to Mbappe, as a more able performer than the Frenchman.
The explosive forward is rated much higher in the Real Madrid camp than Mbappe, with the club certain that the Brazilian adds more value to the team.
Vinicius has indeed been an asset to Real Madrid in recent years. This season, for example, the Brazilian international has racked up 23 goals and 21 assists – making him one of the most productive players in Europe. What is more important is that the forward has delivered on the big stage and in big matches, including the Champions League.
Therefore, Los Blancos are not entertaining the thought of hiring Mbappe, especially as long as he is contractually obligated to PSG.
The report suggests the situation could change should Mbappe terminate his contract at PSG in 2024. But until that happens, the board will not be obsessed with the idea of bringing the Frenchman to Santiago Bernabeu.

Harry Kane ‘very close’ to completing Real Madrid move, only final details remain – report
Jude Bellingham’s move to Real Madrid was finally closed earlier today as officially confirmed by Borussia Dortmund on their website. Yet, the offices at Santiago Bernabeu have not even taken a break to celebrate their success.
According to reports from Alfredo Pedullà, Los Blancos are now completely focused on the acquisition of Harry Kane. The English striker’s arrival is very close to approaching closure and only a few details remain to be sorted.
The Real Madrid and Tottenham Hotspur representatives reportedly held a meeting today over the striker’s transfer. The agenda was to agree on a number for the transfer fee.
The Premier League side began the proceedings with an expectation of €100 to €110 million in exchange for Kane. However, the Merengues suggested a lower point at €80 to €90 million, albeit with the option to include bonuses.
There is not much separating the two parties at the moment, and the minor gap will be bridged in the coming days. Overall, the meeting ended with a broad understanding between the two clubs.
Carlo Ancelotti sees the English striker as the centre-piece of his attack for next season given the recent departure of Karim Benzema. After all, Kane has been one of football’s most consistent goalscorers over the past decade.
Yet, Los Blancos cannot afford to let their guard down with one signing and will need to rope in at least two more names in attack to serve as backup options. The exits of Mariano Diaz, Marco Asensio, and Eden Hazard leave them with no squad depth, after all.
Kane has scored 30, 17, and 23 goals in his last three seasons in the Premier League and is the epitome of consistency. Further, he had three assists in his most recent league season and created 14 big chances.

What an errant nonsense to state that Vinicius, the man who holds on to the ball for far too long only to make bad passes, is more valued than Mbappe!!! I’m a life-long fan of Real Madrid, and I can categorically state that if Mbappe was playing the same position Vinicius is playing now, Real Madrid would have scored far more goals this season than what the situation is now. And Madrid wouldn’t be struggling now in the various leagues,including La Liga and UEFA. Despite occasional flashes of talent by Vinicius, until he learns how not to be selfish with the ball and that the success of any team is based on collective effort rather than on individual display, he has a long way to be compared with Mbappe.
