Real Madrid have begun work at full throttle in the departures section after announcing two new signings early in the window – Antonio Rudiger and Aurélien Tchouameni.

While the situation of several players is uncertain, there has been little doubt over the future of Luka Jovic, the €63 million-rated signing that failed to prove himself at the Santiago Bernabeu.

Last week, it was reported that Fiorentina were in very advanced talks with Real Madrid to sign the Serbian international. The official announcement was thought to be close, but negotiations hit a roadblock soon after.

Jorge Picon of Goal Espana has released more news about the discussions between the clubs. As opposed to the initial proposal of Real Madrid sharing the player’s wages with Fiorentina, the Italian club will now pay 100% of his salary.

However, the player’s wage has been reduced because of Fiorentina’s inability to match the amount he was paid in Madrid. Moreover, Los Blancos are now forced to pay compensation for the money that Jovic was going to earn in the remaining years of his deal.

Given that the striker’s contract with Real Madrid was until 2025, the club now have to shell out the salary he would receive for three years.

It is speculated that Carlo Ancelotti’s side will retain 50% of the player’s rights, meaning they will receive half of any future transfer fee involving the player.

Despite it being an economically draining operation, Jovic’s departure is seen as a much-needed one. The Serbian has struggled to recreate his best form in Spain despite being given multiple chances to showcase his talent.

The 24-year-old played 15 league games for the club last season, scoring just one goal and providing three assists. The official announcement of his transfer is expected to be made tomorrow.

Kylian Mbappe’s arrival at Real Madrid has sparked a frenzy among football fans, with the club swiftly making his iconic jersey available for purchase starting July 11. 

Notably, before July 11, eager fans could not get their hands on a jersey featuring Mbappe’s name and number 9, as he was under contract with PSG until June 30. 

However, once the clock struck July 11, enthusiasts could finally purchase his jerseys in various styles, prompting a rapid sell-out at the Adidas store within hours.

The pricing of these jerseys has garnered significant attention, varying not only by size but also by the type of jersey—Replica or Authentic—that fans choose, reports Diario AS.

Initially, the Real Madrid online store listed the Replica version of Mbappe’s jersey at €100, while the Authentic version, identical to those worn by the team’s players, was priced at €160.

The highest-priced option is the Authentic Mbappe Men’s Home Kit Shirt, retailing at €185. This premium version allows fans to add additional patches such as La Liga or Champions League badges for an extra charge. 

Surprisingly, the women’s version of the jersey is priced equivalently, reflecting gender-neutral pricing practices, while the children’s edition is slightly more affordable at €130. 

Furthermore, even the youngest fans can join in the excitement with a baby version of the jersey priced at €80.

Meanwhile, for those looking for a more budget-friendly option, the Mbappe Men’s Home Shirt comes in at €120. 

Fans can customize these shirts with either a La Liga or Champions League patch for an additional €15, affixed uniquely on the right sleeve, opposite the iconic HP logo on the left, a prominent sponsor of the club. 

These prices apply to the short-sleeved versions; opting for long sleeves incurs a slightly lower cost.
