As the Kylian Mbappe transfer saga drags on, there appears to be a new development in the story if an update from Ramon Alvarez is to be believed.

Mbappe has made it clear that he will not renew his contract with PSG beyond 2024 and the club are firm that they will not let him leave for free next year.

As such, Les Parisiens wish to offload the 24-year-old right away, but the player is unwilling to do so as he could miss out on €150 million in salary and loyalty bonus payments.

There have been suggestions that Mbappe could agree to depart if PSG paid him part of the loyalty bonus that he would receive next year. And now, as per the update from Ramon Alvarez, PSG are willing to agree to that condition so that they can part ways with him.

As such, an agreement between the forward and the French champions over a departure seems to be close, which will come as a huge boost for Real Madrid.

Los Blancos have been hot on Mbappe’s trails for a long time now and have come close to signing him in each of the last two transfer windows without actually succeeding.

But, with things moving in the right direction now, there is a good chance that the Spanish capital giants could be in a great position to secure the 24-year-old’s signing.

It is expected that Mbappe could cost around €200 million in transfer fees, but the total worth of the operation could rise to a much higher figure once wages, commissions and bonus payments are included.

Either way, the progress in discussions between Mbappe and PSG is a good sign for Real Madrid and their chances of signing Mbappe.

Real Madrid 23-year-old striker close to finalising a move to Real Valladolid – report

After two years on loan at Getafe, former Real Madrid striker Juanmi Latasa has returned to the Spanish capital.

His performances, after all, were not enough to coerce his foster club to push for a permanent transfer.

The 23-year-old striker made 32 appearances for Getafe last season, including 15 starts. However, he only had two goals to show for his regular participation and it is safe to label his time at the club as a disappointment.

Now back in Madrid, Latasa is unlikely to get a chance to make a mark at the club. All signs point to a departure in the coming days.

The overwhelming favorite

As revealed in a recent report by Jorge C Picon, several first-division teams in Spain have reported interest in the young striker. Real Valladolid however, are the overwhelming favourites.

The La Liga side are looking for a striker with a good physical presence, height, a strong aerial presence and a knack for goal.

Latasa ticks all the boxes they demand and negotiations between the two clubs are expected to progress in the coming days.

Latasa’s sale, at this point, is thus taken for granted. Leganes and Espanyol are some of the other clubs interested in his services.

No scope in Madrid

Carlo Ancelotti, over the years, has not carved out a reputation as one who trusts academy stars heavily. In his defence, however, he has always had superior options available.

Heading into next season, Los Blancos have a packed forward department including Kylian Mbape, Vinicius Jr, Rodrygo Goes and Endrick.

Considering that the well-established Joselu himself saw no scope at the club next season, it is safe to say that Latasa understands his situation.

From Real Madrid’s perspective, it remains to be seen if they maintain any leverage on his future.
