A recent report from The Athletic has offered a detailed update on Real Madrid’s pursuit of Kylian Mbappe, with Mario Cortegana suggesting that the Spanish giants are likely to wait out until next summer to sign the Paris Saint-Germain forward.

Although PSG are keen on getting rid of Mbappe in the summer transfer window, Mbappe remains determined to continue his stay at Parc des Princes, despite confirming he will not be staying on further than 2024.

The Athletic reveals that there are multiple reasons why Mbappe wants to stay at PSG next season. For one, the French international is expected to receive a whopping €70 million loyalty bonus from PSG for staying on until 2024.

In addition, Real Madrid are apparently ready to pay Mbappe a signing bonus of €130 million if he joins the club on a free transfer next summer. That means Mbappe could earn a figure of around €200 million just by staying at PSG next season, apart from his wages.

It also means Mbappe would miss out on €200 million if he joins Real Madrid this summer, as the Spanish giants will not be offering such a bonus this year.

This is because Los Blancos would also have to negotiate with PSG for a transfer premium, which may easily exceed €150 million. Mbappe, therefore, remains determined to stay at Parc des Princes for the upcoming 2023/24 campaign.

Real Madrid, meanwhile, also believe Mbappe’s options will not change next summer and the player would continue to prefer a move to the Santiago Bernabeu, despite feeling betrayed over the Frenchman’s decision to renew his contract with PSG last summer.

With that in mind, both Real Madrid and Mbappe are likely to hold out for a 2024 move, effectively leaving Carlo Ancelotti with the difficult task of piecing together a formidable strikeforce this season, following the departure of Karim Benzema.

Real Madrid youngster Mario Martin finds himself at an interesting juncture in his fledgeling career.

The midfield prospect is well-liked at the club after impressing with Castilla in the past two seasons while first-team manager Carlo Ancelotti is also an admirer of the player.

While Martin seems to have reached the end of his cycle in Castilla, a spot in the first-team squad is not necessarily available right away, unless Dani Ceballos ends up leaving.

Plenty of interest in Mario Martin

Now, The Athletic reports that Mario Martin is a player in demand in La Liga with half the teams in the Spanish top flight eager to sign him up this summer.

As has already been reported, Real Valladolid and RCD Espanyol are understood to have shown a strong interest in the 20-year-old midfield talent.

However, it appears that there are a plethora of other clubs in La Liga who would be happy to sign Martin from Real Madrid in the current transfer window.

Martin wants to stay

But, the report states Martin is leaning towards staying put at Real Madrid at this point even though the prospects of regular first-team minutes are highly unlikely.

The 20-year-old, who has made four senior appearances for Los Blancos thus far, has a contract that runs until the summer of 2026.

Real Madrid, for their part, are not necessarily ruling out a sale provided a good offer comes along.

Even if they do part ways with Martin, the Spanish capital club would very much likely insert an affordable buyback clause as they have been doing in recent times for departing youth players.
