Kylian Mbappe rejected Real Madrid’s multi-million dollar offer and signed for PSG in the summer, but it seems like he is regretting his decision less than four months into the new season.
The Frenchman reportedly feels betrayed by Les Parisiens as they have allegedly failed to keep the promises made to him regarding transfers and his role in the side prior to his contract extension.
Unsurprisingly, Real Madrid are again the first club to be linked with the World Cup winner. After all, Mbappe has been very vocal about his admiration of the European Champions and that it is his dream to don the white colours.
According to Mario Cortegana (h/t Madrid Xtra), Los Blancos have currently ruled the signing of Mbappe out. They consider his behaviour unacceptable and see him as a bad fit and influence in the dressing room. Moreover, his wage demands are seen as exorbitant.
Over the years, the French forward has not carved out the best images of himself off the field. His throwing of tantrums when things do not go his way reflects immaturity and his decision to choose money over Real Madrid further exemplified the point.
Most recently, he put an Instagram story openly voicing his displeasure at manager Christophe Galtier’s system. The move came under severe criticism and it is not surprising that Real Madrid consider his lack of professionalism a liability.
Last week, it was reported that contacts between Mbappe and Real Madrid never broke down in the first place and that the move could still materialise. With contrasting reports doing the rounds, it remains to be seen as to which path the club resort to.
Real Madrid veteran has ‘adopted’ Arda Guler, is mentoring him in training
The current edition of the Real Madrid squad is full of young talents, who have shown remarkable potential in recent years.
Arda Guler is among the young players looking to make a mark in European football in the years to come.
The young Turk joined Real Madrid earlier this summer, rejecting many other European giants in the process.
Toni Kroos mentoring Guler at Real Madrid
Guler has not enjoyed the best of starts to his life at Santiago Bernabeu, as he is spending a brief time on the sidelines due to an injury.
However, Guler has not stopped working on his characteristics, as he looks to kickstart his Real Madrid career on a positive note.
To that end, the former Fenerbahce starlet is receiving some key support from one of Real Madrid’s midfield pillars in the form of Toni Kroos.
This is according to MARCA, which suggests that the German international is mentoring Guler in his early days at Santiago Bernabeu.
Kroos: huge ‘sponsor’ of Guler
The report highlights how Toni Kroos is a huge admirer of Arda Guler. The German had even heaped praise on the youngster from Turkey when he joined the club earlier in the summer.
Guler, therefore, is closely training with Kroos, whose years of experience, composure, and knowledge of football, could help the youngster grow at Santiago Bernabeu.
This fits in well with Carlo Ancelotti’s vision at Real Madrid, as the Italian boss wants youngsters to have room to grow, especially with guidance from some of the older guards in the team.
It is one of the key reasons Real Madrid wanted to stick to Kroos and Luka Modric, despite bringing in Arda Guler and Jude Bellingham in the summer.
Guler, therefore, has the stage set for him to start his Real Madrid career on a strong note. After impressing in training, the next step for the youngster is to make a promising debut, which is just around the corner.
