Real Madrid target says renewing with PSG is still a possibility

The world thought Kylian Mbappe’s move to Real Madrid was a deal done and dusted. The two parties were said to have a verbal agreement over a free transfer in June, with the salary of the player set at €25 million.

However, the last two weeks have seen the transfer head in retrograde direction. French media have begun insisting that the player is considering a renewal at PSG, while the Parisiens have gone as far as to offer him the captaincy to change his mind. 

Mbappe broke his silence to Prime Video via Fabrizio Romano when asked if he has decided his next club. The Frenchman said,

“I haven’t made my choice on the future, everyone knows that. I’m thinking, there are NEW elements and a lot of parameters. If I had made my decision, I would’ve announced it.”

When asked if staying in PSG was a possibility, the young forward replied, “Yes, of course.”

This news comes as a big shock to Los Blancos‘ offices. If Mbapoe renews his contract with the Ligue 1 side, Real Madrid might have to pay over €200 million in transfer fees to bring him to the Santiago Bernabeu. 

While the club do have the resources to shell out the required amount, it will be a big blow for the other transfer plans. Moreover, it would mean that Ancelotti’s team would no longer be in the race for Erling Haaland.

A decision from the Frenchman’s side is expected in the coming months. It remains to be seen if Mbappe is willing to run down his contract to seal his dream move or risks losing it by signing an extension.

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.
