It is no secret that Real Madrid want to sign Kylian Mbappe from PSG, either this summer for a fee or next year on a free transfer. The 24-year-old is very much likely to leave Paris in the current window after being left out of the pre-season tour of Asia by the club.
However, Los Blancos are not willing to make a move until PSG and Mbappe resolve the situation between themselves and there is a proper price tag in place for the French international.
Amidst this, though, there is a rising interest in Mbappe’s services. Saudi Arabia’s Al Hilal have already sent in a €300 million bid for the 2018 FIFA World Cup winner while offering him a contract worth €700 million for a year.
At the same time, Premier League clubs like Chelsea, Manchester United, and Tottenham are also interested in signing Mbappe.
Now, L’Equipe is reporting that Real Madrid’s bitter rivals, Barcelona, have also entered the picture for Mbappe’s signing and are set to hold a meeting with PSG later today to discuss a potential deal for the 24-year-old.
The Catalans’ financial situation is a mess and there is no way they could match the figures that are being linked with a transfer for Mbappe. However, they would be willing to put several players on the table in a possible part-exchange operation for the 24-year-old.
A transfer seems highly implausible, though, given Barcelona’s Financial Fair Play situation and Mbappe’s desire to join Real Madrid. So, it may very well be a tactic from PSG to get the Merengues to make a move for the French international.
Mbappe is currently training in Paris with the rest of the players who have been told to find a new club while the rest of the squad is on their pre-season tour in Asia. It remains to be seen how the situation evolves in the coming days.
Real Madrid very happy with future star Endrick, eagerly awaiting his arrival in 2024 – Romano
Real Madrid’s attacking unit has been crippled by the loss of Karim Benzema earlier in the summer, which was followed by the loss of Vinicius Jr due to injury.
Although Vinicius has returned, there is much left to be desired from the Madrid frontline as we progress through to the season.
Real Madrid, though, are waiting on the arrival of Endrick. The young Brazilian is set to join the Real Madrid squad in the summer of 2024 when he turns 18.
Real Madrid impressed by Endrick
Endrick has already started his preparation for his pending move to Santiago Bernabeu, having performed exceptionally well in his native Brazil this year.
The youngster is constantly working on his game, in order to further improve himself as an attacker. It has left Real Madrid quite happy and eager for his arrival, reports Fabrizio Romano.
The journalist claims that Real Madrid have been keeping close tabs on everything Endrick has been doing, on and off the pitch, at Palmeiras.
And they have received very good reports on the 17-year-old, with the club impressed by how he is putting efforts to improve himself both performance-wise and in other facets.
Despite there being some question marks over his performances, the teenage forward is starting to showcase his potential, having scored five goals in five starts for Palmeiras.
Endrick also learning new languages
Endrick is not only just working on his performance. In fact, the Brazilian is also learning other languages in order to quickly settle into life in Spain.
The youngster can speak Portuguese, but he may have to master Spanish during his time at Santiago Bernabeu.
As mentioned earlier, Endrick can already speak Portuguese, which should go a long way in helping him team up with fellow Brazilians Vinicius Jr and Rodrygo.
Even Eder Militao can speak Portuguese, which should make it easier for Endrick to adapt to life in Spain, at least for the next year or so.
