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.

How Manchester United’s pursuit of Dutch star could benefit Real Madrid

The highly anticipated transfer of Leny Yoro to Real Madrid has encountered an unexpected obstacle, with Manchester United’s surprise entry into the race. 

The Red Devils have successfully negotiated a substantial €50 million+ bid with Lille, leaving Real Madrid’s chances hanging by a thread. 

This means the only factor still in favour of Real Madrid is Yoro’s strong desire to wear the iconic white shirt, a dream he has harboured for a long time.

As things stand, Real Madrid face significant hurdles. For once, Lille are exerting pressure on the player to accept Manchester United’s offer, given its considerable value. 

On the other hand, Real Madrid are hesitant to match this figure, creating a stalemate. Additionally, Manchester United are eager to secure a top-notch defender, especially with the departure of Raphael Varane, a former Real Madrid player. 

This sense of urgency is driving United’s pursuit of Yoro, making them a formidable competitor in the transfer race.

A glimmer of hope for Real Madrid

As it turns out, Manchester United are also considering Bayern Munich defender Matthijs de Ligt as a priority target. De Ligt has given his nod to the move and has instructed his representatives to disregard other offers. 

This development provides Real Madrid with a much-needed advantage in the pursuit of Yoro, as United’s focus is divided between two top defenders.

While Manchester United have made progress in negotiations with both De Ligt and Yoro, it is unlikely that they will recruit both players. 

Given De Ligt’s readiness to make an immediate move, Manchester United are expected to prioritize his transfer, leaving Real Madrid as the sole contender for Yoro’s signature. 

This twist in the tale gives Real Madrid a glimmer of hope, as they can now focus their efforts on convincing Yoro to join their ranks.

Yoro’s dilemma: To wait for Madrid or join United

Yoro’s preference is to join Real Madrid, but the club has yet to indicate its willingness to match Lille’s accepted fee from Manchester United.

This has led the Ligue 1 club to favour a transfer deal with the Premier League club. 

If Yoro is to make a move this summer, he faces a difficult decision: either wait until 2025 to join Real Madrid for free, which Lille are unlikely to accept, or agree to a transfer to Manchester United, which would benefit the French club.

The outcome of Yoro’s transfer now hangs precariously in the balance. Real Madrid’s reluctance to match Manchester United’s offer and Yoro’s personal preference for the Spanish giants are the key factors in this high-stakes transfer drama. 

Will Yoro choose to wait for his dream move to Real Madrid or opt for a switch to Manchester United? Only time will tell. 

In the end, Yoro’s transfer will have significant implications for all parties involved. Real Madrid’s hopes of landing their top target hang in the balance, while Manchester United’s urgency to recruit a top defender has thrown a spanner in the works. 

Lille, too, are eager to cash in on their prized asset, and Yoro’s decision will determine the fate of his transfer.

But with United going after De Ligt, it could end up playing into the hands of Real Madrid, helping them land their top target to replace Nacho.
