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 are looking towards a heavy splurge in the coming summer transfer window. After all, they do not even have another option given the sheer number of player departures already finalized.

Los Blancos have lost the services of Karim Benzema, Marco Asensio, Mariano Diaz, and Eden Hazard over the past week. While three of the four players predominantly featured on the bench, their presence in the squad gave Carlo Ancelotti’s side much-needed depth and a cushion of sorts.

The forward unit is, thus, the most prioritized department ahead of the transfer window. However, pieces are beginning to fall apart on other fronts and could potentially put the club in a difficult situation.

According to reports from Gianluca Di Marzio, Juventus are eyeing Lucas Vazquez and hope to sign him in the coming month. Contacts between the two parties have begun and the transfer fee discussed appears to be around the €6 million to €8 million ballpark given that he has just one year left on his contract.

The player, for his part, is willing to sign for the Italian giants given his relative lack of minutes at the Santiago Bernabeu. At 31 years of age, he understandably does not want to play a second-fiddle role.

Vasquez played part in 23 of Real Madrid’s 38 La Liga games last season, starting only on 12 occasions. Even in his few appearances, he averaged a mere 50 minutes per game.

The veteran completed the season with four goals and an assist to his name. Further, he averaged five defensive actions and a key pass in every game and feels hard done by his limited role.

Vazquez’s departure would place the club in a tricky situation as it would leave Real Madrid with only Dani Carvajal as a natural right-back option. Nacho Fernandez could, in theory, serve as the backup but a new signing for the position cannot be ruled out.
