As the 2022 summer transfer window approached, only one high-profile transfer seemed to be written in stone – Kylian Mbappe’s move to Real Madrid. The Frenchman had been linked with the Merengues for years and it was taken for granted that he would join his dream club on a free transfer.

Yet, the move collapsed in a matter of hours. A late lucrative contract offer from PSG changed Mbappe’s mind and the forward signed an extension in Paris. Needless to say, Los Blancos felt hard done by the player and it was reported that they would not pursue Mbappe in the future.

But according to reports from Romain Molina, Real Madrid have changed their stance on the situation. The European champions will go for the PSG star again if there is an opportunity. Contacts between the two parties never broke despite the player’s contract extension and the train for his signing passes again.

The sudden news about Mbappe’s future comes as a result of his situation at PSG. Despite having a good season statistically, the Frenchman is said to be unhappy at the club as he feels betrayed by Les Parisiens, who allegedly have failed to keep the promises made to him at the time of his contract signing.

One such promise on which PSG failed to deliver was the signing of Aurelien Tchouameni in the summer, with Mbappe recommending him. But the Parisian giants were beaten to his capture by Real Madrid.

The 23-year-old is also said to be disgruntled about his position on the field, while his relationship with Neymar has completely broken down too. With the situation being as it is, Mbappe reportedly wants to get out of the club as early as possible, with Real Madrid emerging as his preferred destination.

Given his recent extension, Los Blancos can no longer sign the youngster on a free transfer. Considering that PSG’s valuation of him is close to the €400 million mark, it remains to be seen if Real Madrid are serious in their pursuit of him.

Florian Wirtz has enjoyed a spectacular 2023/24 season and he has played an integral role in Bayer Leverkusen being crowned the Bundesliga champions this past weekend.

The 20-year-old has plundered 17 goals and 18 assists from 41 matches in all competitions, emerging as one of the best young players in Europe, with his game reaching a new level under Xabi Alonso.

Naturally, Real Madrid have taken note of Wirtz and his development and have set their sights on him as a target for the future.

Real Madrid are not the only club interested in the German international, though, with other clubs like Manchester City and Liverpool also keen.

Wirtz to continue at Bayer Leverkusen for now

Any move for Wirtz though will not be taking place in the summer this year, though, with Bayer Leverkusen CEO Fernando Carro confirming as much in a recent interview.

“Florian Wirtz will stay with us next season. The plan is clear, together with his father,” Carro said in an interview with AS, as quoted by Fabrizio Romano.

“There’s interest from many clubs, we can’t plan too long in football… but he’s staying,” he added.

Works in Real Madrid’s favour

Wirtz staying at Bayer Leverkusen for another season would work well into Real Madrid’s transfer plans.

After all, the Merengues have other priorities like Kylian Mbappe, Alphonso Davies, and Leny Yoro for the upcoming summer.

Wirtz is on the Spanish capital club’s agenda, but for the future, and him staying in the Bundesliga at least for another year gives Los Blancos a chance to go after him in 2025.
