Journalist Rodrigo Faez has reported that Real Madrid are still hoping to sign Kylian Mbappe this month. In fact, the team from the capital city want to close the operation before the start of the new season.

The reporter adds that everyone at Real Madrid are extremely attentive to PSG’s transfer movements.

They have kept a keen eye on their summer business by noting how quick they were in acquiring the likes of Ousmane Dembele from Barcelona and Goncalo Ramos from Benfica.

What is happening with Mbappe and Madrid?

A lot has been said about the French forward’s potential move to Real Madrid. The World Cup winner’s current contract with PSG ends in 2024 and since he does not wish to extend it further, the Ligue 1 champions are pushing him towards an exit.

The player, however, has made it absolutely clear that he wants to see out his contract, meaning that he wants to leave PSG for free in the summer of 2024. 

Now, this is where the tension first surfaced. PSG do not want to bear a loss next year, hence they sent the forward a clear ultimatum that either sign a contract or leave this summer.

As for Real Madrid, they are willing to be mere spectators of this entire charade. Those sitting in PSG offices are of the idea that their star man has already arranged a free transfer to Madrid in 2024.

A few days ago, we reported that Madrid are hoping to resolve the issue as soon as possible and if everything goes to plan, Mbappe will be a new Real Madrid player by the second week of August.

Judging by the complication of the matter, it is expected that the deal could go down the wire. It is no surprise that Madrid want Mbappe and even the player wants to move to the capital city, but everything depends on the agreement.

As of today, Madrid have not made any advancements nor are they willing to pursue the Frenchman as they did back in 2021.

It has been suggested that they want to test PSG’s resilience – the first move must come from either the Parisians or the player himself.

But if Real Madrid do wish to close his signing before the start of the season, that strategy might not work.

Aurelien Tchouameni has had an exciting start to his career at Real Madrid. Since joining the club for almost €80 million last summer, the young Frenchman has now become a pivotal figure in Real Madrid’s midfield unit.

However, prior to his move to Santiago Bernabeu, the midfielder was closely linked with a move to Paris Saint-Germain.

In a recent interview, Tchouameni opened up on his links to PSG but revealed his decision to join Real Madrid.

Talking about speculations linking him to PSG, Tchouameni said (h/t Madrid Zone), “PSG? Frankly, I thought about it. It’s a very big European club, we want the French clubs to succeed.”

“But honestly, when Real Madrid calls you, it’s very complicated to say no,” Tchouameni added.

The midfielder was linked with a move to PSG during his time at AS Monaco. Les Parisiens wanted to sign the youngster as part of their plans to reinforce the midfield unit.

Tchouameni, though, ended up opting for a move to Real Madrid, which turned out to be a prudent decision from the midfielder’s end.

Tchouameni’s career at Real Madrid

Aurelien Tchouameni made a total of 50 competitive appearances during his maiden season at Real Madrid.

Although the Frenchman was not entirely a first-team regular in Carlo Ancelotti’s setup, his stature in the team is expected to grow in the coming years.

Especially as Toni Kroos and Luka Modric move on at the end of the season, there is scope for Tchouameni to become a first-team regular in the Real Madrid midfield in the years to come.

The former AS Monaco starlet has already played a crucial role in the starting eleven so far this season and it is only going to continue as the season progresses.
