There is an eerie silence around Kylian Mbappe’s future. The young Frenchman announced his decision to not extend his contract with PSG beyond 2024 earlier this month, leading to speculations of an exit. But things have not panned out as Real Madrid would have liked since then.

Mbappe’s sudden decision did not go down well in the Paris offices. Yet, they did not take long to accept the truth and decided on selling him this summer in order to recoup some compensation.

While PSG are willing to sell the star, Mbappe wants to stay at the club for another year, leading to a standoff, with Real Madrid watching on, waiting for a resolution. Needless to say, such prolonged silence with no update does not bode well.

According to reports from Jose Luis Sanchez, Los Blancos have the money ready to enable Mbappe’s arrival. The journalist reinforces that the PSG prodigy is the club’s only plan, either for this summer or the next. They are not interested in other names such as Harry Kane or Kai Havertz at this point.

Florentino Perez is said to be a big admirer of the youngster’s lethal finish and clutch mentality. With Karim Benzema no longer at the club, he sees the PSG star as the next leader for Real Madrid’s attack.

All efforts are being directed to ensure his arrival this summer, for the financial aspect will cause no complications. After all, the Merengues have no forward options barring Vinicius Jr, Rodrygo Goes and new signing Joselu.

If Mbappe ends up staying in France, he would arrive next season on a free transfer. As it stands, that is the less likely of the two options because of PSG’s stance.

In 34 Ligue 1 appearances last season, the Frenchman scored 29 goals and provided five assists. One of the most potent attackers in the game currently, Mbappe would undoubtedly elevate the Real Madrid team. However, much will depend on how he and PSG resolve their current standoff.

Real Madrid youngster Mario Martin finds himself at an interesting juncture in his fledgeling career.

The midfield prospect is well-liked at the club after impressing with Castilla in the past two seasons while first-team manager Carlo Ancelotti is also an admirer of the player.

While Martin seems to have reached the end of his cycle in Castilla, a spot in the first-team squad is not necessarily available right away, unless Dani Ceballos ends up leaving.

Plenty of interest in Mario Martin

Now, The Athletic reports that Mario Martin is a player in demand in La Liga with half the teams in the Spanish top flight eager to sign him up this summer.

As has already been reported, Real Valladolid and RCD Espanyol are understood to have shown a strong interest in the 20-year-old midfield talent.

However, it appears that there are a plethora of other clubs in La Liga who would be happy to sign Martin from Real Madrid in the current transfer window.

Martin wants to stay

But, the report states Martin is leaning towards staying put at Real Madrid at this point even though the prospects of regular first-team minutes are highly unlikely.

The 20-year-old, who has made four senior appearances for Los Blancos thus far, has a contract that runs until the summer of 2026.

Real Madrid, for their part, are not necessarily ruling out a sale provided a good offer comes along.

Even if they do part ways with Martin, the Spanish capital club would very much likely insert an affordable buyback clause as they have been doing in recent times for departing youth players.
