Real Madrid target could be banished to the stands by his club if he doesn’t leave




Kylian Mbappe has become a real headache for Paris Saint-Germain. After confirming his desire to stay at the club next season, it appears the forward is gunning for a move to Real Madrid next year.

That means Mbappe could join Los Blancos on a free transfer in 2024, effectively leaving PSG with nothing. To solve the issue, the club have tried to convince the attacker to renew his contract or leave the French capital this summer.

PSG threaten to bench Mbappe all season

Unsurprisingly, PSG have had little luck convincing Mbappe to either extend his contract or leave the club this summer.

The French international even knocked back a lucrative offer from Al Hilal, which would have made him the highest-paid athlete in the world.

In the midst of all this, PSG have now resorted to threatening Mbappe. They are open to sending him to the stands for the entire season if the forward does not leave the club this summer.

This has been reported by Carrusel Deportivo, who claim that Mbappe is unlikely to be called up to the squad for the season opener against Lorient on August 12.

Real Madrid certainly favour signing Mbappe next year, as it would help them cut some costs. But the club have appeared open to signing the player this summer.

However, the operation to sign the 24-year-old could easily reach €230-250 million, which is quite a tall order given the fact that the club also roped in Jude Bellingham for over €100 million earlier this summer.

PSG, for their part, are desperate to offload Mbappe this summer. This has been exacerbated by the club’s likely capture of Ousmane Dembele.

The coming days, therefore, could be crucial as PSG look to not only complete the signing of Dembele but also sanction the sale of Mbappe.

Real Madrid full-back never considered summer exit, would retire at club if given chance

Ferland Mendy finds himself in a difficult situation at Real Madrid. The Frenchman has struggled with injury and fitness woes for a large part of the past year, leading to doubts over his future at the club.

In fact, it had been reported that Los Blancos were considering selling Mendy during the summer transfer window earlier this year itself.

But, such a move did not materialise and the 28-year-old has stayed put at the Santiago Bernabeu although reports suggest that he is likely to be on the move next year.

Mendy would retire at Real Madrid if he could

Despite there having been numerous reports about his future in the summer, The Athletic reports that Mendy did not consider the possibility of an exit at any point.

In fact, the report adds that if given a chance, the 28-year-old defender would retire at Real Madrid.

Mendy’s contract with Los Merengues expires in 2025 and he is understood to be seeking a renewal for a while now, but there has been no move made by the club.

The injuries that the 28-year-old has picked up are understood to be a major deterrent for Real Madrid, which is why they are already looking to reinforce the left-back position with Alphonso Davies next year.

Despite the non-stop speculations surrounding him, Mendy continues to enjoy the full trust of manager Carlo Ancelotti.

Indeed, as per the report, the Italian tactician has informed the Frenchman that he is the left-back that best fits the defensive requirements needed in the team.

Ancelotti’s decision to bench Fran Garcia in the UEFA Champions League game even though Mendy was unavailable and start David Alaba at left-back was taken as an indicator within the dressing room that the Frenchman remains the first-choice in the position.

So, it remains to be seen how the situation unfolds over the coming months, especially with Ancelotti’s future also uncertain as his contract expires in 2024.
