The saga of Kylian Mbappe, his admiration of Real Madrid and his dream move to Santiago Bernabeu has been a recurring theme for years. Every time the world sees the deal to be closed, a new complication arises.

The men in white have failed twice already in signing the Paris Saint-Germain star and reports earlier in the season confirmed that they had given up his pursuit for good. Mundo Deportivo, however, reveals the other train of thought running in Florentino Perez’s mind.

According to the Spanish outlet, the president of Real Madrid wishes to light up the inauguration of the new Santiago Bernabeu with the unveiling of the club’s next Galactico signing. After all, it would only be poetic to do so.

Kylian Mbappe, in such a situation, is the club’s number one target. The French winger is seen to have a global pull like few others in the world of football, and Real Madrid see it as fitting for him to don white.

Unlike previous years, however, Los Blancos will not be the ones pulling the string this time around. The Merengues will pursue Mbappe only if the player himself is ready to negotiate his departure with Nasser Al-Khelaifi. Signing the chequebook is the only procedure Perez wishes to indulge in.

Convincing PSG will be the limiting factor in the entire transaction, especially given that Mbappe is the centre-piece of their blueprint. Considering their runs across all competitions and the potential departure of Lionel Messi, the French prodigy may no longer find Paris as tempting.

In 29 Ligue 1 appearances for Christophe Galtier’s side, the 24-year-old has scored a stunning 23 goals and provided four assists. His UEFA Champions League campaign was stellar too, studded with seven goals and three assists in just eight appearances.

    He is good, but he should stay at PSG! He’s just using Madrid to get a better contract. Florentino should go after Erling Halaand, a much better fit, and the fans would like him better as Mbappe left a bad taste with the Madrilistas!

Ancelotti-favourite defender will leave Real Madrid if club signs 23-year-old ace

With Kylian Mbappe’s signing now a completed objective, Real Madrid turn to what was always considered the second most critical operation of this summer – Alphonso Davies.

The Canadian full-back has been on Los Blancos’ radar for a while now, but with his contract with Bayern Munich running until 2025, his signing is seen to be a tad bit more complicated.

The Bavarians’ firm stance that they wish to persist with the speedster, needless to say, has only made the objective more complicated for Los Blancos.

No room for three

Despite Bayern Munich’s repeated advances towards Davies in recent weeks, Real Madrid are firm that they will attempt to sign the player this summer.

In light of the Canadian full-back’s possible arrival, Cadena SER reveals that Ferland Mendy will almost certainly leave Real Madrid if Davies’ signing is pulled off.

Carlo Ancelotti is clear that he has no room for three left-backs in his squad. One of Fran Garcia and Mendy must thus leave the Spanish capital in such a scenario and the Frenchman is better placed on that front.

Mendy’s current deal in Madrid runs out next year and the player has been informed that a decision over his future at the club will be taken shortly.

On track with Davies

The Spanish outlet also reveal that the Canadian speedster rejected an offer from Bayern Munich in recent hours and that his departure from the Bavarian capital is not ruled out.

Bayern Munich demand a sum of €50 million for the dynamic full-back. Real Madrid, however, have set a spending limit of €30 million for the youngster and will not exceed that sum in any scenario.

Vincent Kompany’s men thus have a critical decision to make, for allowing Davies to run down the final year on his deal may well back-fire as did the case of Kylian Mbappe with PSG.

Real Madrid, as it stands, appear to be in the driver’s seat.
