Ferland Mendy’s agent, Yvan Le Mée, has been busy all summer. His client’s future at Real Madrid appears to be in jeopardy with the club opening the doors for the left-back to leave, and rightfully so considering his injury record and poor form.

In a recent interview brought to light by MARCA, Le Mée spoke openly about Kylian Mbappe’s potential transfer to Real Madrid. Giving an agent’s perspective, he had only the Frenchman’s mother Fayza Lamari to blame.

The World Cup winner’s mother doubles as his agent, and her lack of understanding of negotiations and the dynamics of the markets is holding Mbappe back, according to Mendy’s representative.

“It’s not her job, she doesn’t have the ability to act. I wanted to set up a restaurant but I don’t know how to cook, so I didn’t. For a moment, you just have to be in reality and do what you know how to do.”

Le Mèe then lashed out at Lamari over her immature handling of the protege’s situation without an official license, and even went on to say that the youngster was unhappy at his current club.

“To make arrangements for your son and other players, you should have a license.”

“When you don’t have the codes, and talk to the leader of a historic club as if you were talking to someone you’ve known for a long time, maybe it doesn’t work. You may not know how to handle the situation to get there. He’s still in Paris and obviously, he doesn’t seem happy to be there.”

The then agent made a big statement about Mbape’s current situation. Had his future been under the care of a specialist agent, he said, the French international would already be a Real Madrid player for two seasons now.

“I am convinced that if he (Kylian Mbappé) had had an agent at the time of the negotiations with Real Madrid two years ago, he would have gone to Real Madrid.”

After a long-drawn transfer saga, Mbappe finally appears set to leave PSG and even made an official statement about his decision to reject a contract renewal. A move to Madrid is on the cards, but it remains to be seen if it materialises this summer or in the next one. The agent, however, was confident that it would not work out this season.

“Will Mbappé go to Madrid this summer? Absolutely not. I’m close to Real Madrid, they have no money.”

Real Madrid usurped the top spot in the La Liga standings from arch-rivals FC Barcelona as they defeated Girona 3-0 away at Estadi Montilivi.

It was a fine performance from Carlo Ancelotti’s men against Michel’s side, with the returning Jude Bellingham leading the way for his team.

After being benched against Las Palmas in midweek, the England international returned to the starting XI today and turned in yet another Man of the Match display for Real Madrid.

It all started with Joselu opening the scoring just 15 minutes into the game, with Bellingham assisting the goal with a special, outside-of-the-boot pass from the left side, bringing back memories of Luka Modric doing something similar a few years ago.

Talking about that special pass, Bellingham said: “I’ve been watching Luka every day for months. I just want to be creative. It took the pressure off us at the start.”

On the match and the result, the 20-year-old stated that it was a good day across the board for Real Madrid, as he said: “It was an important win. They were doing very well. We made a statement of intent to La Liga. Three goals, a clean sheet….”

It has been a truly remarkable start to life at Real Madrid for Bellingham and expressing how he feels to play for the Merengues, he exclaimed:

“I feel very good. I have freedom of movement and I’m enjoying football. Whenever I put on this shirt I always try to do my best.”

Apart from assisting Joselu’s opener, Bellingham also got his name on the scoresheet in the second period. Talking about his goal, the wonderkid said:

“It wasn’t a very good finish. I could have scored some more, but the important thing is the victory.”

The strike meant that Bellingham now has seven goals and two assists across all competitions for Real Madrid. Reflecting on his brilliant start, he said:

“It’s a good start, not bad. I would like to continue on this path and I won’t always score or assist, but I will always give my best.”

Bellingham’s celebration has been a huge hit, with kids in school, players from other clubs, and many others mimicking it. When asked how his special celebration originated, he replied:

“I don’t know where I first celebrated. I think it was with Birmingham. It’s an inspiration to see kids doing it in schools. It’s a wonderful thing.”
