According to a report from Defensa Central, Real Madrid’s president, Florentino Perez, reached out to Kylian Mbappe following PSG’s elimination from the UEFA Champions League. 

Perez expressed his sympathy for Mbappe’s disappointment and noted that it would have been a delight for Real Madrid to face him in the final match at Wembley Stadium.

“I hope we can be at Wembley, it would have been a pleasure to play against you,” Perez reportedly told Mbappe.

While a clash between Real Madrid and PSG in the Champions League final was a possibility, PSG’s journey ended prematurely with their defeat against Borussia Dortmund. 

Mbappe has played his last UCL match for PSG

Consequently, Mbappe’s last Champions League match for PSG did not end in the victory he had hoped for. 

Despite his efforts, he has yet to lift the UCL trophy with PSG. Nonetheless, he will soon arrive at Real Madrid, where he plans to carve out his own legacy and demonstrate his status as one of the world’s best players.

As for Real Madrid, they will shift their focus to their upcoming match against Bayern Munich at the Santiago Bernabeu, a team that commands great respect from Valdebebas.

This match promises to be intense, given Real Madrid’s ambitions and the impressive form of Carlo Ancelotti’s squad this season.

Real Madrid have an unfinished business

Ancelotti’s team has performed exceptionally well, and they are determined to reach another final. Their potential achievement would be to clinch the title, a milestone that is within reach yet still demands tremendous effort. 

Winning the 15th continental title would be a significant milestone for the club. As the classic European rivalry approaches, Real Madrid fans are growing increasingly anxious, anticipating another thrilling chapter in the team’s storied history. 

The stakes are high, and the journey to the final is both tantalizingly close and seemingly far away. Fans are eagerly awaiting what could be a historic night for their beloved club.

Real Madrid’s best lineup next season with Kroos retiring, Mbappe and Endrick joining

It is set up to be a transformative summer for Real Madrid. After the UEFA Champions League final has concluded and the grand showdown finally has a victor, the Merengues are expected to undergo a squad revamp.

Indeed, the Santiago Bernabeu is preparing to welcome several high-profile signings, while also bidding farewell to some beloved Madrid legends.

Considering the potential arrivals of Kylian Mbappe and Endrick, as well as Toni Kroos’ recent retirement, here is how Real Madrid could shape up next season:


Having made a long-awaited return from injury, Thibaut Courtois is anticipated to guard Real Madrid’s goal next season once more.

The Belgian goalie has already started featuring in the starting XI and is expected to play against Borussia Dortmund in the Champions League final, too.

As such, his place for next season is hardly in doubt. However, unlike previous seasons, he will face much fiercer competition from Andriy Lunin, who has enjoyed a stellar campaign.


Fortifications in the defensive line remain high on Real Madrid’s priority list in the upcoming summer transfer window. However, even with the given options the Royal Whites boast assurance and grit in their back-line.

The likely occupants on the flanks would be Dani Carvajal and Ferland Mendy, who have both produced great exhibitions throughout the campaign.

Carvajal is known to punish defensive lines and on the defensive end, his anticipation of forwards has been equally appreciable.

Meanwhile, Mendy’s resurgence this season has earned him immense faith from the coaching staff, as his defensive aptitude continues to set him apart.

In the centre-back positions, Real Madrid are expected to rely on the dependable figures of Antonio Rudiger and Eder Militao.

Real Madrid consider Rudiger to be indispensable owing to his front-footed style and the important role he has had to play amidst the injury crisis. Similarly, Militao is valued by the team as he proceeds to regain match fitness after recovering from a long-term injury.

Thankfully for Real Madrid, their succession stage had begun a while ago and they have ample options to trust in the center of the park.

With Aurelien Tchouameni protecting the base of midfield, Real Madrid will possess security and deep progression.

Ahead, occupying the interior midfield positions, Fede Valverde and Eduardo Camavinga are well-suited to provide a combination of energy off the ball and threat in possession.

And to put the cherry on top, Jude Bellingham’s place as the number 10 behind the two strikers would certify his status as a pivotal playmaker and scorer in the team’s setup.

However, he is adept at making third-man runs and connecting the midfield with the offence and could play deeper to not only make up for Kroos’ absence but also facilitate more options up front.


Real Madrid’s offensive department is where the largest reform is expected to take place.

Kylian Mbappe’s goalscoring instincts need little introduction by now and he is thus anticipated to be fielded as the striker.

Vinicius Jr. is expected to take up the position as a secondary striker drifting from the left, something he has become quite accustomed to this season.

It is worth noting that Endrick could also play a part by either replacing Vinicius off the bench and playing off Mbappe.

It remains to be seen how many men forward Ancelotti will commit to but the presence of Mbappe and Vinicius seems set in stone, given their huge profiles and status in world football. How the manager uses Rodrygo Goes will be interesting to see as well.

All in all, considering Ancelotti’s proficiency in profiling players, Madrid fans can expect to see these stars play in favourable environments.
