Despite Real Madrid’s insistence that they are not in talks for Kylian Mbappe and are surpised by the recent links between them and the PSG forward, things seem to be moving in the background.

Indeed, as per journalist Rodrigo Faez of ESPN, Real Madrid are looking to close the deal for the French superstar before the 2023/24 La Liga campaign starts.

As such, the next week will be important for all parties involved to make progress on the operation, with the idea being that the 24-year-old is a Galactico before the new season kicks off in the second week of August.

Florentino Perez has grand plans with Mbappe

The update from journalist Rodrigo Faez further states that Real Madrid president Florentino Perez has grand plans for the unveiling of the new Santiago Bernabeu with Mbappe expected to be at the front and centre of it.

Indeed, the Real Madrid president wishes to have the 2018 FIFA World Cup winner to be one of the poster icons for the unveiling of the new Santiago Bernabeu, along with another new arrival in Jude Bellingham and resident superstar Vinicius Jr.

It is no secret that Vinicius is now seen as the face of this Real Madrid team and him, along with the likes of Bellingham, Rodrygo, and Eduardo Camavinga, will form the core for the future.

And Perez wishes to add Mbappe into the mix as well, with the plan being that the Frenchman is on the posters at the unveiling of the new stadium later this year, along with Bellingham and Vinicius.

Real Madrid want to offer Mbappe a six-year contract

Beyond that, Faez’s update also states that Real Madrid wish to hand Mbappe a six-year contract until 2029, much like they have done with Bellingham this summer.

A fee of €250 million has been mentioned for the 2018 FIFA World Cup winner, but Los Blancos hope to reduce it to a figure close to €200 million.

It has been previously reported that finances are not an issue for the Spanish capital club who have the funds ready to move for Mbappe.

Furthermore, La Liga’s salary cap rules are also not expected to be a problem, with the club said to have a margin of around €200 million, more than sufficient to fit Mbappe.

Perez, when quizzed about the pursuit of Mbappe recently, had refused to give anything away, stating that he remained calm about things.

But it appears that things are starting to speed up behind the scenes as Real Madrid look to land Mbappe before the season starts.

Real Madrid prodigy eager to make his debut as he closes in on return from injury

Real Madrid’s start to the season has been nothing short of exemplary. The Merengues have won every game since the dawn of the campaign, going unbeaten over the course of six games.

However, coach Carlo Ancelotti has yet to unearth the maximum potential of his squad, as injuries to key players and some notable absentees have prevented Real Madrid from flexing their muscles.

Arriving this summer on a six-year contract, Arda Guler has not been fortuitous enough to don the Royal White jersey yet, owing to a knee injury he endured early in the pre-season tour of the US.

But after missing out on the initial stages of the campaign, his return is closer than ever.

Arda Guler aching to make his debut

Indeed, as per Diario AS, he has fully recovered from his injury and is close to playing his first match for Real Madrid.

The Turkish sensation cannot wait to play and apparently will be back with the group on Monday as he can finally shake off the rust and be reintegrated within the squad dynamics.

Guler has missed some important games in La Liga thus far, as well as the Champions League opener versus Union Berlin, which Madrid won with a late Bellingham strike.

However, the season is still long, and the 18-year-old will finally be able to participate in the upcoming matches, with El Clasico also on the horizon.

Oozing talent

After a thorough investigation, the Madrid sports management came to the conclusion that Guler would be a suitable attacking addition who is poised to fit the team dynamics like a glove.

As a result, everyone at the club is excitedly anticipating his return from injury because he will have plenty of possibilities this season.

The player garnered immense attention in the summer transfer window and Real Madrid are thus looking forward to seeing him in action.
