In a recent viral TikTok video (h/t Madrid Xtra) involving Real Madrid stars Vinicius Jr, Eder Militao and the club’s chief scout Juni Calafat, the trio were seen talking about the possible arrival of Kylian Mbappe this summer.

The lighthearted video began with the two Brazilian players being asked if the French superstar would join the team this year to which they both replied that they hoped so.

“We hope he will come,” Vinicius said in the video. He was immediately backed by his teammate Militao who added, “I hope so.”

The duo then proceed to involve Calafat in the conversation, asking him to do the needful this summer.

“Juni (Calafat), you have to sign Mbappé,” they say jovially in chorus. The club’s chief scout proceeds to pull their leg by commenting on their holiday in Ibiza.

“You are spending all our money in Ibiza. We’ll no longer have enough for Mbappé.”

The Brazilian winger refused to give up on the topic and was then seen pressurising Militao to persuade Calafat. The defender then asks the administrator about Mbappe again.

“Mili, tell Juni to sign Mbappe,” Vinicius said.

“Juni sign Mbappe,” the 25-year-old defender added.

No ego clashes

While the video is indeed a jovial interaction between three close individuals, it clearly shows how both the Brazilian stars dream of having Mbappe by their side.

It puts special emphasis on Vinicius’ stance on the situation, for there were some sceptics who believed that the Frenchman’s possible arrival might lead to ego clashes with the Brazilian superstar.

After all, both players ply their trade in a similar position.

Reports yesterday stated that the 23-year-old was excited about joining forces with the striker, and the above video just reinforces the same school of thought.

How close is Mbappe to joining Real Madrid?

The winger’s deal with PSG is set to expire next summer, and the player wishes to sign for Los Blancos on a free transfer next summer. However, the French club are pressurising him to depart immediately.

The latest reports state that Real Madrid could make a bid for the superstar as early as August 15th and that they hope to have him for the first part of La Liga.

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.
