Rumours linking Kylian Mbappe to Real Madrid have started to do the rounds once again, despite how things went down last summer.

Mbappe, it was believed, was close to signing for the Merengues, but the Frenchman made a last-minute swerve and decided to renew with PSG, leaving Real Madrid red-faced in the process.

But, the 2018 FIFA World Cup winner is not too happy in Paris, with murmurs of frustration and disenchantment doing the rounds for a while now. On top of that, Mbappe’s contract expires next year, which has only added fuel to the possibility of a move to Real Madrid.

But, according to a report from MARCA, Real Madrid have cut off all contacts with PSG and there are no negotiations taking place for Mbappe.

The 24-year-old’s current contract with PSG runs out in the summer of 2024, although there is an option to extend it by one more year. However, it can be done only with the consent of the player and unilaterally by the club.

It has paved the way for speculations about a move from Real Madrid for Mbappe either this summer or next year, when he would be free, provided he does not sign a new contract.

PSG, for their part, have reportedly asked Mbappe to make a decision on his contract and inform the club by May so that they can plan ahead.

However, if Real Madrid are not having any sort of contacts or negotiations with PSG for Mbappe, it seems clear that a move in the upcoming summer transfer window is very much off the table at the moment.

Only time will tell if Los Blancos will look to go after the FIFA World Cup 2022 Golden Boot winner next summer, if he becomes available for free.

Following a difficult season with troubles in La Liga and the Champions League preventing Real Madrid from retaining their crowns, Los Blancos move towards a transformative summer, full of innovations.

Real Madrid managed to clear plenty of unwanted figures at the club, with a huge relief on the wage bill. However, with an array of exits, the squad has contracted and thus replacements are being inquired.

Apart from the high-profile departure of Karim Benzema, fringe players have also bid their farewell.

Among those names is Mariano Diaz, who was Madrid’s backup striker prior to his withdrawal. Several names have been put on the table to fill his absence as the club largely aim to address their lack of depth.

According to Arancha Rodriguez (via RM4Arab), Leeds United striker Rodrigo Moreno is one of the names gaining consensus in the Madrid hierarchy. Moreover, Joselu has also been considered as a viable alternative.

The two favourites to replace Mariano have proven to be important figures for their clubs as both strikers maintain a starting role.

Playing for Espanyol, Joselu ended the La Liga campaign as the third top scorer, only behind Benzema and Lewandowski. Considering Espanyol’s relegation, such a feat looks even more impressive. The Spaniard secured 19 goals in all competitions.

On the other hand, Rodrigo Moreno recorded 16 goals last season across all competitions. Similar to Joselu’s case, the Spanish international also suffered relegation with Leeds, in spite of his good numbers.

With both players offering adequate output in struggling sides, Real Madrid’s interest is practical. Moreover, considering both Espanyol and Leeds were relegated, their asking price will undeniably lower, which enables the Merengues to sign one of the two targets at a more convenient rate.

It is claimed that Rodrigo has a release clause worth €3.5 million which Los Blancos would have to trigger to sign him from Leeds United.

It now remains to be seen whether Carlo Ancelotti & co. go after the former Valencia man or move for Joselu instead.
