Real Madrid ‘pause’ all transfer operations to wait for Mbappe’s final decision – report

After a storm of reports about Kylian Mbappe’s speculated move to Real Madrid over the past week, the buzz has fizzled out. There appears to be little mention of the Frenchman in the Spanish media, and the headlines once again talk of other transfer operations.

Jose Felix Diaz reports that the move is far from off the table. While the sudden reduction in the noise around Mbappe’s move is surely startling, Los Blancos have only kept it on pause to see what transpires between the youngster and PSG.

The World Cup winner has openly declared his desire to part ways with the French giants at the end of his contract next summer. The club, however, prefer to sell him this year and recoup some compensation instead.

Mbappe’s unclear situation with PSG thus has direct repercussions on Real Madrid’s transfer window. The Merengues have paralyzed all talks with other potential centre-forward options until he makes a final decision, and the pressure is on the player to decide soon.

As it stands, Joselu is the only forward whose arrival to Santiago Bernabeu appears finalized. Whether or not another signing is needed will depend on Mbappe’s decision.

The doors to Real Madrid seldom stay open for long, and any hesitancy from the Frenchman’s side to push for a move to Spain could prove costly for him. Needless to say, a final stance and price tag must arrive in the coming days.

Los Blancos seriously consider including a player in the deal to sign Mbappe if the transfer takes place this month, and Ferland Mendy appears most likely to make the move to France.

After all, Real Madrid are desperate to reduce the transfer fee after signing Jude Bellingham for over €100 million in recent days.

Real Madrid enjoyed strong representation at the recently concluded European Championship and Copa America.

Dani Carvajal is the only player who returned with silverware, but it is safe to say that all the team’s stars on international duty put up displays to be proud of.

The attention now turns towards the season that lies ahead. Carlo Ancelotti and co. have already begun working ahead of the new campaign, and the internationals will begin rejoining training in the coming week, as relayed by MARCA.

The early returnees

Having suffered an early elimination in the Euro with Croatia, Luka Modric is set to return to training as early as the beginning of the coming week.

The veteran recently renewed his contract with the club and will be looking to prove that he still has it on his feet.

The team’s new signing, Endrick, will join forces with Los Blancos on Wednesday as he begins a new chapter in his short, yet illustrious career so far. All eyes will be on his official signing and presentation.

Meanwhile, Arda Güler and Antonio Rudiger are expected to return to training under Ancelotti towards the end of the week.

The late entries

Players who progressed relatively deeper into the recently concluded tournaments have understandably been granted a longer vacation, and both the French and English representatives of the club enjoy that luxury.

Needless to say, no specific date has been set for their return, considering that their campaign in the Euro ran deep into July.

The team’s Copa America stars, Vinicius Jr, Rodrygo, and Eder Militão, meanwhile, will report to training on July 31st. Federico Valverde, who finished third with Uruguay, will likely enjoy a longer hiatus.
