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 goalkeeper Andriy Lunin is at a crossroads in his career, with several offers on the table, including one from Premier League club Arsenal, according to a report from Diario AS

It is understood that Lunin has grown tired of playing second fiddle to Thibaut Courtois at Real Madrid and he feels that his performance last season warrants more playing time and equal opportunities. 

Although he will start training with Real Madrid today, it does not guarantee his future at the club.

Real Madrid, on their part, have offered Lunin a contract renewal, which he has yet to respond to. The club has proposed a renewal that would extend his stay until 2029, but the 25-year-old is still unsure about committing.

However, his hesitation is fueled by advice from those close to him, who encourage him to seek opportunities outside of Real Madrid. 

The situation is complicated

However, Lunin remains undecided about his next move. His uncertainty is understandable given the setbacks he has faced, such as Courtois securing the starting position in crucial matches like the one at Wembley in the UEFA Champions League final. 

Lunin had shone in games against Leipzig, Manchester, and Munich, earning praise for his performances, yet he still finds himself in Courtois’ shadow.

The dilemma Lunin faces is significant, as his decision will impact several stakeholders. If he decides to leave Real Madrid, the club will need to find a replacement, with Kepa Arrizabalaga being a potential candidate

On the other hand, if Lunin chooses to stay, Real Madrid have no plans to alter their treatment of him.

For now, everyone is eagerly awaiting Lunin’s decision. His future is hanging in the balance, with the potential to shift the dynamics at Real Madrid and affect his career trajectory significantly. 

Will he stay and continue to fight for his place, or will he seize a new opportunity with a different club, perhaps in the Premier League? Only time will tell, but one thing is clear: Lunin’s next move will be a pivotal moment in his career.
