Real Madrid insist no negotiations ongoing with PSG for Mbappe, ‘surprised’ by recent news

According to a report from AS, Real Madrid are surprised to see news circulating that links them with Kylian Mbappe once again.

The Spanish capital giants insist that there has been no negotiation with PSG for the French star and that there will be none in the weeks to come.

The report adds that Los Blancos strongly believe that Mbappe will stay at PSG and fulfil the final year of his contract.

From their perspective, a move this summer is unlikely and they do not have any plans of going through with negotiations until 2024.

Most importantly, the Spanish publication states that the Merengues do not want to get involved in the internal spat between Paris Saint-Germain and the 24-year-old phenom.

They believe that what happens in Paris should stay in Paris and wish to be kept out of the limelight.

Ironically, however, PSG stand at the polar opposite end in terms of belief.

The Parisiens are sure that their player has an agreement to join Real Madrid for free in 2024, with the contract even drafted already. Their focus, thus, is on selling the player this summer.

As such, reports earlier this week that PSG had slapped a €250 million valuation on their contract rebel and had conveyed the same to Real Madrid via intermediaries.

Los Blancos though are surprised by this sort of news popping up, as they have not had any talks with PSG directly or through third parties, regarding a move for Mbappe, and continue to believe that he will remain in France for another year.

Mbappe was left out of Luis Enrique’s squad that travelled to Asia for pre-season and will not feature for PSG again until he makes a final decision.

The Frenchman thus has to quickly choose between one of three options – an immediate departure, a renewal with PSG, or an intermediate move to a different club such as Al Hilal before signing for Real Madrid in 2024.

Real Madrid rising star suffered against Atletico due to veteran forward’s absence, says Simeone

Real Madrid’s 3-1 defeat to Atletico Madrid was not the first time were in trouble this season. In fact, the Merengues have gone behind early in almost every league game so far.

However, the difference on Sunday night was that they never really mounted a comeback. More importantly, Jude Bellingham did not come good, for the first time.

Simeone unravels the mystery

A jubilant Diego Simeone spoke to the media after his side downed Real Madrid by three goals to one and spoke about a plethora of topics. 

Interestingly, he commented specifically on why Bellingham did not have an impact at Civitas Metropolitano, citing the absence of Joselu as a key factor.

“No, the spaces were reduced and I think that Joselu’s lack of presence left him with fewer chances to get there, when he takes advantage of Joselu’s aerial play. We controlled him better, he’s extraordinary,” he said, as quoted by AS.

He even called out the refereeing on the night and insisted that the Real Madrid star-boy should have seen red for his late tackle on Angel Correa, saying:

“It looked like a sending-off to me live, it was a hard leg up, with Angelito hitting the ball.”

Ironically, he defended his defender Jose Maria Gimenez for an equally threatening tackle on the night.

“A bad foul, it’s a yellow card because it goes sideways. Bellingham goes from the front and I think it’s a bit more,” he stated paradoxically.

No time to lament

The game at Civitas Metropolitano may not have gone Real Madrid’s way. Yet, it is good for the Merengues to taste defeat early and see the gaping holes in their dynamic.

Carlo Ancelotti admitted in his press conference that he bore the lion’s share of the fault for Sunday’s loss and that he would have done things differently if given the chance.

“Maybe I could have done it better. It’s pretty clear. When the team doesn’t do what it has to do, it’s my responsibility,” he stated.

Nevertheless, Los Blancos have a hectic schedule ahead with two games in the next five days and a UCL fixture against Napoli next week. With Vinicius Jr back, one hopes they find their mojo once again.
