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.”

In a recent report by Manu de Juan in AS, it has been revealed that Arda Guler is expected to play a significant role for Carlo Ancelotti’s Real Madrid next season, despite ongoing rumours connecting him to Liverpool

Currently, Carlo Ancelotti has five key players listed on the club’s official website: Kylian Mbappe, Vinícius Jr, Rodrygo, Brahim Diaz, and Endrick. However, Guler is an additional player who is likely to make a substantial impact next season.

In fact, it is said that the Turkish teenager is set to be Ancelotti’s versatile player for the 2024-25 season. His adaptability is a major asset as he can play in various positions, including as a central or attacking midfielder, a right winger, or even as a forward. 

His recent performance in the European Championship highlighted his capabilities, where he scored one of the tournament’s standout goals. This versatility makes him a valuable addition to the squad.

Ancelotti has clear plans for Guler

Ancelotti has indicated in the past that he sees Guler’s primary role as a forward. However, the coach is not hesitant to use him in a midfield role when needed.

This flexibility will be crucial, especially with changes in the team’s lineup. With Toni Kroos having left and Aurelien Tchouameni expected to play more as a centre-back, there will be a need for additional midfield options.

Despite his potential, there are concerns about Guler’s physicality and his ability to cover extensive ground on the field. Ancelotti has acknowledged these limitations, noting that Guler needs to improve his defensive positioning and overall physical endurance. 

The coach has mentioned that Guler is already working on these areas, aiming to overcome these challenges.

Meanwhile, during one of the celebrations at Cibeles, Ancelotti hinted at Guler’s increased involvement in the upcoming season. He described Guler as a “very interesting boy,” suggesting that the young player will have more opportunities to showcase his skills. 

This implies that fans can expect to see a lot more of Guler in action, making him a player to watch closely in the next season.
