Florentino Perez presided over the infamous ‘Galacticos era’ and it appears the Real Madrid president is eager to recreate the riches of his past.

Indeed, the Merengues are looking at a potentially revolutionary summer, with the likes of Kylian Mbappe and Alphonso Davies highly linked to the club.

Mbappe’s case is especially strong, considering he publicly announced his departure from PSG at the end of the season and will join Real Madrid as a free agent.

It has been speculated that his arrival could disrupt the harmony in the dressing room, with former Real Madrid footballer and sporting director, Predrag Mijatovic sharing similar views.

But Real Madrid believe that could not be farther from the truth, as they view his arrival as an opportunity to elevate the team’s performance and strengthen their competitive edge.

A healthy problem for the club

Indeed, according to Diario AS, there’s a unanimous view at Real Madrid that Kylian Mbappe’s imminent arrival will create a welcome conundrum for the team.

The players believe that the French World Cup winner’s arrival would foster healthy competition among the group.

Moreover, the increase in competitiveness is seen as an opportunity to improve each player’s performance rather than as an obstacle.

There is also a strong sense in the club that Mbappe’s arrival will benefit the team both on and off the field, with more competition likely to make it easier to sell players who are surplus to requirements, aiding Real Madrid on the financial front.

When could Mbappe be presented at Real Madrid?

Prior reports have stated that the fixture schedule is currently causing Real Madrid to have calendar issues.

This implies that the public may have to wait until August to see the 25-year-old star unveiled.

Until then, Real Madrid would look to focus on their tasks at hand this season, with the club in pole position in the race for the league title. They are also slated to take on Manchester City in the quarterfinal stage of the Champions League.

Of all players people would have expected to turn up for El Clasico today from Real Madrid, it was the backup right-back Lucaz Vazquez who delivered an absolute masterclass of a performance in their 3-2 win.

The Spaniard played Barcelona out of the park starting as the right-back, and ran circles around Joao Cancelo.

He won the penalty for the first goal, scored the equaliser in the 73rd minute, and then assisted Jude Bellingham’s winner in the 91st minute.

“Great night, like many others at the Santiago Bernabeu. We are very grateful to the fans, they created a spectacular atmosphere. We are where want to be, six points away from winning the league,” Vazquez said, as quoted by MARCA.

Coming off an exhausting 120 minutes vs Manchester City in the Champions League, not many would have expected the shift Madrid put in tonight, especially after trailing on two occasions.

“The team, despite the great effort in Manchester, showed their face again. We once again played a great game, and we did everything in our power to achieve this win that gives us the advantage in the league,” Vazquez commented on it.

Now 11 points clear off Barcelona, Madrid can almost sniff La Liga out, and according to Vazquez, it reflects their work well.

“I think this difference speaks well about our work. We had a very good season in La Liga, and we are on the right track.”

As for his own performance, the Spaniard was modest, and said, “I am very happy to be able to help the team. A lot of things went well today, and that is important for everyone”

He was asked two very important things, as well, including his possible inclusion in the 2024 European Championship, to which he replied, “I would love for Luis de la Fuente to call me up for the Euros.”

And more importantly, he also spoke about the controversial penalty incident, but claimed that it was 100% a penalty. “I cut back and his leg caught me. It was a penalty.”

Real Madrid have five days off now before they travel to the Basque county to take on Real Sociedad in the league before travelling to the Allianz Arena to face Bayern Munich in the Champions League semi-finals.
