Real Madrid have no communication with Mbappe or PSG, €400 million price tag exceeds their budget

The latest update on Kylian Mbappe’s future is out, and it does not bode well for his fairytale move to Real Madrid.

According to reports from Jose Felix Diaz, Los Blancos have denied any contact with Mbappe and Paris Saint-Germain. There is no communication with either party, nor an effort to open a negotiation at this point. 

The administration believes that the arrival of Mbappe this summer will cost at least €400 million, a sum that exceeds the club’s budget. 

Moreover, there is also a concern around the internal environment. Real Madrid’s leaders believe that the Frenchman’s arrival in the locker room could lead to some uncomfortable situations.

The scenario plays into the Merengues‘ hands, for Nasser Al-Khelaifi knows that the player’s price tag will fall as days go by. Right now, the offices at Valdebebas are said to have turned a blind eye to the developments in France and a move this summer looks unlikely.

Earlier this week, the World Cup winner spoke publicly about how he felt at PSG, the limitations of the Ligue 1 side and elaborated on his decision to leave. His repeated jibes at the French club through the interview clearly do not leave him in a good spot in Paris.

“I think that playing at PSG does not help much because it is a divided team, a divided club. So, of course, it attracts gossip but it doesn’t bother me because I know what I’m doing,” he said.

It is high time the youngster buckles up and makes open advances towards negotiating an exit with PSG. Not only are the Ligue 1 champions’ administrators and players fed up with his antics, but he is also beginning to get on the nerves of Real Madrid. 

There will be no further advancements from Los Blancos in his regard. The ball now lies in Mbappe’s court, and it remains to be seen how he responds.

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.
