Real Madrid forward Rodrygo has said that he hopes Paris Saint-Germain forward Kylian Mbappe joins him at the club, adding that his inclusion will help them a lot.

Mbappe’s situation with the Ligue 1 champions has taken an interesting turn. His ongoing contract runs out in 2024 and while PSG want him to sign an extension, he wants to see out the deal and leave for free next year.

Mbappe’s exit on a free transfer will cause PSG a lot of trouble as this will force the French team to sell a few players from the current roster so that they can comply with the Financial Fair Play guidelines.

Mbappe’s exit from the French capital, be it this summer or next, is directly connected with Real Madrid as they are seen as the favourites to sign the 24-year-old superstar.

Speaking on the subject, Rodrygo was quoted by MARCA as saying: “Mbappé? At Real Madrid it’s very complicated, there are always rumours, and this year there were rumours about Harry Kane.

When I arrived in Madrid there was a lot of talk about [Paul] Pogba coming, so I don’t have any information.

I don’t have any information, we have to wait and see. Of course, I hope Mbappe comes because he will help us a lot. He is a real star, but we really don’t know anything.”

Mbappe and PSG are set to intensify talks over his future and hope to resolve the situation soon. Real Madrid are happy to be patient as they believe that the longer the saga continues the lesser they would have to pay for the Frenchman.

During the interview, Rodrygo also shared an old story related to former Real Madrid left-back Marcelo, saying that the Brazilian, who has been playing for Fluminense for four months, was simply extraordinary.

“It’s nice to see Marcelo play. It’s one of the most impressive things I’ve seen. His quality is out of this world. When I arrived at Real Madrid he impressed me. When Camavinga arrived we used to do rondos and every day Marcelo would dink over him,” he explained.

Just over a month into the 2023/24 season, Jude Bellingham is already the toast of the town in Madrid.

Indeed, the 20-year-old midfield prodigy has made a sensational start to life as a Real Madrid player and the story continued last night on his UEFA Champions League debut for the club.

With the game against Union Berlin seemingly headed towards a draw, Bellingham found himself in the right place at the right time to turn home a late winner in stoppage time and send the Santiago Bernabeu into a state of frenzy.

The England international is making it a habit of scoring late winners for Real Madrid and is basking in all the admiration that is coming his way.

Following yet another match-winning performance, which led to him being named the MVP of the game, Bellingham spoke to the club’s media and said:

“It was a good win. It was a tough match, they were very well-organised at the back. It was frustrating at times, but we knew we had to keep insisting and try to find those gaps.

“We missed a lot of chances, but in the end, I was lucky to be in the right place at the right time to score.”

On his dream start to life at Real Madrid with six goals in six games, Bellingham said: “I am very happy. Every day I am very grateful to be here. I come with a smile on my face, happy to learn from my teammates and to keep winning. Winning is the most important objective here.”

“I didn’t expect a start like this. I was confident in doing things well and, so far, it’s going very well. I’ve got my feet firmly on the ground and I’m calm. I hope it continues like this,” he later added.

The 20-year-old sensation also opened up on the goal he scored last night to win it for Los Blancos against Union Berlin, saying:

“I thought I had to follow the ball, just like against Getafe. They’re not aesthetic goals, but you have to be there to score them. Now it’s my turn to take advantage of those moves, but we’re a team and we help each other with the moves. That’s key.”

Talking about the atmosphere at the Santiago Bernabeu on a Champions League night, Bellingham could not hide his joy at experiencing it as he said:

“It’s the best. I thought La Liga was going really well until I heard the noise after the goal. I’m crazy about the support of the fans. You don’t know how big this club is until you are part of it. Hopefully, I’ll be here for many years to come.”

Signing off, he had a few words about Real Madrid’s start to the season, with six wins in six games across all competitions, saying:

“It’s the most important thing. At the beginning of the season, we would have signed it. We have to maintain this level and carry this rhythm into the next game. We all have to continue with this level of play because we have a lot of games ahead of us.”
