Real Madrid officially announced the signing of Jude Bellingham less than 24 hours ago. The English midfielder joined Los Blancos after a long transfer saga and was expected to be the club’s only blockbuster signing of the window.

The situation has changed in recent days. Kylian Mbappe’s open announcement of his desire to leave PSG at the end of his contract has once again churned up talks of a possible move to Real Madrid.

The French club cannot afford to lose their best player on a free transfer next year and are thus looking to engineer a departure this summer. With every passing day, the possibility of Mbappe’s move to Real Madrid materialising is only increasing.

According to reports from Fabrizio Romano (h/t Madrid Xtra), Los Blancos are convinced that they have a concrete chance of signing the Ligue 1 superstar. All efforts are being directed to ensure it is completed ahead of next season.

Paris Saint-Germain believe that Mbappe intentionally leaked the information of his decision to the media so as to create a chaotic environment and push for an exit. However, the player played down such accusations in his recent interview.

PSG are said to be willing to sell their star to Real Madrid despite their sour relations. Talks between the clubs will likely progress in the coming days, especially with respect to the transfer fee.

Florentino Perez has always prioritised Mbappe’s arrival over any other move for Real Madrid in the forward department. In fact, he is willing to offer the youngster a contract with €25 million in wages.

€200 million appears to be the number decided upon in Madrid as the sum budgeted for Mbappe’s arrival. That, at first sight, appears to be enough to meet the French club’s expectations.

With Bellingham and Mbappe and one more striker and a physically fit Defence in the mould of Ramos in his heydays, not even Man City will mess around Real Madrid going forward.

Real Madrid out-of-favour defender now unlikely to leave the club

Real Madrid missed out on the signing of Leny Yoro after deciding not to match Manchester United’s offer for the 18-year-old defender.

With the French prodigy now on his way to the Premier League, Los Blancos are assessing their options before deciding whether to sign a new centre-back or not.

As things stand, the reigning champions of Spain and Europe seem to be leaning towards relying on their existing options rather than going into the market.

Jesus Vallejo unlikely to leave

As such, MARCA reports that the likelihood of Jesus Vallejo leaving the club have now significantly reduced.

Indeed, the 27-year-old out-of-favour defender now appears more and more likely to continue at Real Madrid beyond this summer.

Vallejo returned to the Santiago Bernabeu after finishing his loan stint at Granada during which he hardly played due to injury and fitness woes.

As such, reports suggested that Carlo Ancelotti & co. were not planning on counting on him next season, even though he was handed a new shirt number recently.

But with the Leny Yoro operation collapsing and Real Madrid not keen on recruiting anyone from the market at this point, the Spanish ace is now unlikely to leave the club.

With David Alaba still sidelined, Antonio Rudiger and Eder Militao will start the new season as the first-choice centre-back pairing and Vallejo will serve as the backup while Aurelien Tchouameni will also be an option.

Vallejo, for his part, wanted to stay put and see out his contract which expires in 2025. And, as things stand, it appears that the player will get his wish.
