In a matter of days, all of Real Madrid’s hard work over the past two years seems to have been undone. The plan to bring Kylian Mbappe to the Santiago Bernabeu was one of football’s worst kept secrets and was even considered to be a completed deal by many.

In football, there can always be a new twist until the official announcement is made. That is what has happened in the case of Mbappe.

According to reports from Hadrien Grenier, the Frenchman has decided to renew his contract at Parc des Princes. The official announcement, however, will only happen in May.

This would mean that the prodigy would no longer be a free agent in the summer. Paris Saint-Germain would undoubtedly look to keep the star in France for years to come, and any party interested in his signing would have to pay a hefty sum.

This puts the Galacticos in a tricky situation. Shelling out over €150 million on Mbappe would hamper their plans of strengthening the defence and midfield. Yet, it would give them one of the strongest forward lines in the football world.

In 26 Ligue One starts, Mbappe has scored 17 goals while providing 13 assists. He averages four shots and two key passes per game. Needless to say, he is the spine of the current PSG team.

The Parisiens are said to be offering the 23-year-old a yearly wage north of €50 million, double Real Madrid’s proposed salary. It remains to be seen if Los Blancos re-enter with a higher figure.

Real Madrid considering move for Manchester City superstar as club faces possible sanctions

Premier League has come up with a shocking statement, charging defending champions Manchester City with more than 100 breaches of the financial rule between 2009 to 2018.

The allegations levelled at Man City could lead to a point deduction for the defending champions or perhaps even expulsion. This could prove to be significant for not Premier League but European football in general.

To that end, a new report from Daily Mail suggests Real Madrid are keeping close tabs on the situation. They are aware of the fact that if Man City get sanctioned, it could rule them out of the chase for top target Jude Bellingham.

But more importantly, it may open up the opportunity to sign Erling Haaland in the near future. The Norwegian international was one of Man City’s smartest business move in the summer when they roped in the star striker for a meagre fee.

However, Spanish media believes Haaland has a release clause in his contract worth around €200 million. It could be activated in the summer of 2024 and clubs like Real Madrid are said to be interested in activating the clause.

But in light of the recent allegations made against Man City, Real Madrid are anticipating a potential mass exodus, and could make an early move for the forward, especially if the English giants get sanctioned by the Premier League board.

It goes without saying that Haaland, who has been scoring goals for fun since joining the Premier League outfit, is someone who demands to play at the highest level of football. It was one of the key reasons he joined Man City – a club that can offer consistency in terms of sporting success.

But a potential sanction for City could change the dynamic, possibly paving the way for a club like Real Madrid to establish themselves as an excellent suitor for Haaland.
