Paris Saint-Germain have endured a very difficult start to the year. If their early elimination from the UEFA Champions League was not enough, there is growing tension between the players, particularly surrounding the future of their stars.

Lionel Messi has been closely linked with a return to Barcelona, with rumours suggesting that the Argentine international has lost his affection for PSG.

In a recent update from Jorge Picon, it appears even Kylian Mbappe, the Real Madrid target, is losing with patience in PSG with each passing day. The club have continued to underperform in Europe despite bagging all the top players across the world.

Not to mention, the board failed to heed Mbappe’s suggestions last summer, including the acquisition of a new number nine. Coupled with PSG’s underwhelming performances in Europe, it seems Mbappe’s faith in the club is starting to deplete.

Earlier today, the 24-year-old issued a statement lashing out at the club over using clips from an interview he had given to promote season ticket sales for next term. All this has led to speculations over his future, especially with his contract expiring next year.

As per the report, Real Madrid are closely monitoring the situation. They are not actively looking out for options to sign Mbappe in the coming summer, but they are passively observing the saga on the sideline.

Mbappe was close to signing for Real Madrid last summer before he made a surprising U-turn and renewed his contract at PSG. It seemed that the communications between the two entities had been lost completely after that debacle.

But it seems Real Madrid have continued to monitor the Frenchman’s situation at PSG. The Spanish giants have no intention to make a move in the summer, however. The only way they are going to make an effort in Mbappe is in 2024 when his contract at PSG comes to an end.

This is hardly surprising as Real Madrid are not in a position to finance a deal for Mbappe in the summer, as the former AS Monaco starlet is likely to cost a fortune.

Real Madrid goalkeeper Andriy Lunin is at a crossroads in his career, with several offers on the table, including one from Premier League club Arsenal, according to a report from Diario AS

It is understood that Lunin has grown tired of playing second fiddle to Thibaut Courtois at Real Madrid and he feels that his performance last season warrants more playing time and equal opportunities. 

Although he will start training with Real Madrid today, it does not guarantee his future at the club.

Real Madrid, on their part, have offered Lunin a contract renewal, which he has yet to respond to. The club has proposed a renewal that would extend his stay until 2029, but the 25-year-old is still unsure about committing.

However, his hesitation is fueled by advice from those close to him, who encourage him to seek opportunities outside of Real Madrid. 

The situation is complicated

Lunin’s situation is complicated. Despite having a contract that runs until 2025, he has received numerous offers, some quite attractive, such as the one from Arsenal.

However, Lunin remains undecided about his next move. His uncertainty is understandable given the setbacks he has faced, such as Courtois securing the starting position in crucial matches like the one at Wembley in the UEFA Champions League final. 

Lunin had shone in games against Leipzig, Manchester, and Munich, earning praise for his performances, yet he still finds himself in Courtois’ shadow.

The dilemma Lunin faces is significant, as his decision will impact several stakeholders. If he decides to leave Real Madrid, the club will need to find a replacement, with Kepa Arrizabalaga being a potential candidate

On the other hand, if Lunin chooses to stay, Real Madrid have no plans to alter their treatment of him.

For now, everyone is eagerly awaiting Lunin’s decision. His future is hanging in the balance, with the potential to shift the dynamics at Real Madrid and affect his career trajectory significantly. 

Will he stay and continue to fight for his place, or will he seize a new opportunity with a different club, perhaps in the Premier League? Only time will tell, but one thing is clear: Lunin’s next move will be a pivotal moment in his career.
