Real Madrid were dealt with a major blow in the summer when top target Kylian Mbappe, after months of speculations, decided to renew his contract with Paris Saint-Germain rather than moving to Santiago Bernabeu.

The rejection left Real Madrid in a state of dismay and since then, the club have completely closed the chapter of bringing the Frenchman to the Spanish capital, reports MARCA.

The Spanish publication suggests that Real Madrid have yet to hold a dialogue with the camp over Mbappe’s potential move to Santiago Bernabeu, even after the PSG superstar starred in the World Cup, notably scoring a hat-trick in the final.

The club’s summer pursuit of the Frenchman, followed by his subsequent rejection, had greatly exhausted the club’s hierarchy, especially after they put great time and effort to sign the player.

Since then, Real Madrid have worked behind the scenes to elevate the roles of existing stars such as Vinicius Junior and Rodrygo, instead of relying on the market for a new Galactico.

Real Madrid have great hopes in Vinicius, in particular, and believe the Brazilian can further elevate himself as one of the face of the club’s attacking unit, for the years to come.

As for Mbappe, the Whites do acknowledge the quality and the talent the Frenchman offers, but the club have no intention to disrupt the current ‘dynamic’ of the dressing room by bringing in a player who has been often criticised for his ego.

Moreover, Real Madrid believe no club in European football are in a position to meet the €100 million premium PSG paid for Mbappe’s loyalty. They are also unlikely to meet Les Parisiens‘ valuation of the Frenchman. As such, the door for Mbappe to join Real Madrid remains closed, for the time being.

Real Madrid are set to welcome two new stars this summer, Kylian Mbappe and Endrick, but the Merengues are keen on further bolstering their squad.

Owing to the embarrassment of riches Real Madrid possess in midfield, replacing Toni Kroos with a new signing in midfield is not seen as an immediate priority.

Nonetheless, interesting opportunities will invariably be evaluated closely and it appears the name of Adrien Rabiot has entered the club’s crosshairs.

Real Madrid not the only ones interested

But, according to Gazzetta dello Sport, Real Madrid face stiff competition from Premier League clubs and Saudi Arabian teams in their pursuit of midfielder Adrien Rabiot.

The French midfielder is set to become a free agent if he chooses not to renew his contract with Juventus, a decision that seems increasingly likely.

Known for his technical prowess and versatility, Rabiot excels at playing multiple roles in midfield and notably thriving as a goal threat with late runs inside the opposition box that tend to catch opponents off guard.

While Real Madrid have no shortage of quality in midfield, Dani Ceballos’ exit could pave the way for the 29-year-old to secure a signing for Los Blancos.

However, Real Madrid would have to outmanoeuvre both the financial prowess of Saudi Arabian teams and the competitive allure of Premier League clubs to secure Rabiot’s signature.

On top of that, Juventus are also not giving up on their efforts to try and renew the contract of the French international.

In any case, Rabiot is unlikely to be a priority target for the club but they will be sure to keep a close eye on how his situation develops.
