Real Madrid believe time in their favour with PSG, Mbappe set to intensify future talks

With the Kylian Mbappe transfer saga yet to meet a resolution, the situation continues to dominate headlines in the media.

The 24-year-old superstar has already confirmed that he wishes to stay at the club and leave for free next year when his contract expires. The Parisian giants, though, are not in favour of such a move and wish to either sanction his sale right now or extend his contract.

Amidst this, Real Madrid continue to lie in wait and closely watch the situation as they prepare themselves to pounce on Mbappe’s signing.

With PSG starting their pre-season preparations today, Mbappe arrived at the club’s facilities with his future far from being clear.

And according to MARCA, negotiations are set to intensify between the 2018 FIFA World Cup winner and PSG as both parties seek a solution for the matter at the earliest possible.

Indeed, the forward and the club will hold talks tomorrow itself, with PSG keen on finalising his future, one way or the other, before their pre-season tour of Japan.

Mbappe remains firm in his stance that he does not wish to extend his contract. In such a scenario, PSG do not want him on the pre-season tour and wish to offload at the earliest.

Amidst all this, Real Madrid are waiting patiently for the scene to play out. They believe that time is in their favour and the longer the negotiations between PSG and Mbappe take, the possibility of signing the attacker for a lower fee increases for them.

PSG, for their part, are already looking at attacking reinforcements. They are set to re-sign Xavi Simons from PSV Eindhoven in a deal worth €6 million and have their sights on Juventus star Dusan Vlahovic as well.

So, there may very well be some major developments in the Mbappe transfer soap opera in the coming days, as Real Madrid seek to learn whether they can sign him this summer or not.

Real Madrid goalscorer played with a dislocated shoulder against Las Palmas

Journalist Arancha Rodriguez has claimed that Real Madrid forward Brahim Diaz played the Las Palmas game with a dislocation in his right shoulder, which actually happened last Sunday during the derby match against Atletico Madrid.

The news was later confirmed by the forward’s father, Sufiel Abdekalder, who told The Athletic, “Yes [he had dislocated shoulder], but we didn’t want it to be public. Our 100% focus was on the match.”

The former AC Milan loanee started his first game of the season and it was his goal that marked the beginning of Real Madrid’s 2-0 win over Las Palmas. 

The 24-year-old was later replaced in the 57th minute but by then, the Los Blancos had already established a two-goal lead.

“I’m so proud, you can’t describe the feeling, it’s something unique. I can only thank the fans because I’ve had an incredible welcome. I’m very happy to be here and play for this badge,” the forward said after the game.

Special outing for Diaz

The Las Palmas game was the first time that Diaz started a game for Real Madrid.

The versatile attacking midfielder found himself among the five alterations made by Carlo Ancelotti following the disheartening derby performance against Atletico Madrid last Sunday, a game where Diaz was only introduced in the 70th minute.

The 24-year-old seized the opportunity with both hands, scoring the opening goal in what was a comfortable outing for the team. 

Given the competition at hand, Diaz has been forced to settle for substitute appearances this season but fans have witnessed his unwavering dedication during this time.

The love he received from the Madrid supporters was shown when he was substituted during the second half.

While it is unlikely that his run in the first-team will continue, especially since Vinicius Jr. has now returned, the 24-year-old must continue to keep his head on the ground and work towards achieving the common goal this season.
