Real Madrid has historically been home to some of football’s biggest names. The trend has continued through the decades, for Los Blancos still houses some of the best-known players worldwide.

One such young star is Vinicius Jr. The Brazilian winger was relatively unknown when he signed for the Galacticos in 2017. Today, he is the team’s poster boy and is even considered the best winger in the world by many.

The incorporation of Kylian Mbappe has thus been viewed with sceptical eyes by some fans across the globe. After all, the French winger would steal the limelight from Vini Jr and become Real Madrid’s most advertised player quite easily if he arrives.

According to reports from MARCA, there will be no such ego clash between the two footballers. Vinicius has big admiration for Mbappe and would love to play alongside him.

Positional dilemma for Real Madrid?

Carlo Ancelotti’s primary concern if Mbappe arrives would be the supposed battle of egos between the new arrival and key players in the dressing room who have built their stature with years of hard work.

However, the battle between Vinicius and Mbappe will not end in the dressing room.

The PSG star has made the left-flank his own during his time in Ligue 1 and even established himself as one of the best in the business in the process.

This could be a worrying factor for the manager, for his Brazilian star plays in the same position.

However, previous reports have suggested that Vinicius will retain his position on the left flank and that Real Madrid see Mbappe operating through the middle.

At the same time, Ancelotti recently indicated that the Brazilian could adapt to a more central role moving forward, which would help accommodate Mbappe on the left.

How close is Mbappe to joining Real Madrid?

As of today, there is no concrete negotiation between Real Madrid, PSG, and Kylian Mbappe surrounding the World Cup winner’s transfer.

The Parisians are pushing for the player to leave Parc des Princes this summer to recoup some economic compensation.

Florentino Perez, however, hopes to push Mbappe’s arrival to the final days of the window and pressurise PSG to sell him for a low price.

Real Madrid youngster Mario Martin finds himself at an interesting juncture in his fledgeling career.

The midfield prospect is well-liked at the club after impressing with Castilla in the past two seasons while first-team manager Carlo Ancelotti is also an admirer of the player.

While Martin seems to have reached the end of his cycle in Castilla, a spot in the first-team squad is not necessarily available right away, unless Dani Ceballos ends up leaving.

Plenty of interest in Mario Martin

Now, The Athletic reports that Mario Martin is a player in demand in La Liga with half the teams in the Spanish top flight eager to sign him up this summer.

As has already been reported, Real Valladolid and RCD Espanyol are understood to have shown a strong interest in the 20-year-old midfield talent.

However, it appears that there are a plethora of other clubs in La Liga who would be happy to sign Martin from Real Madrid in the current transfer window.

Martin wants to stay

But, the report states Martin is leaning towards staying put at Real Madrid at this point even though the prospects of regular first-team minutes are highly unlikely.

The 20-year-old, who has made four senior appearances for Los Blancos thus far, has a contract that runs until the summer of 2026.

Real Madrid, for their part, are not necessarily ruling out a sale provided a good offer comes along.

Even if they do part ways with Martin, the Spanish capital club would very much likely insert an affordable buyback clause as they have been doing in recent times for departing youth players.
