Paris Saint-Germain are gearing up for an important summer ahead. If the expected departure of Kylian Mbappe is not enough, it appears PSG could lose more star players to top European giants at the end of the season.

Achraf Hakimi is one of those players facing an uncertain future at Parc des Princes, with Real Madrid, no surprises, emerging as one of the potential suitors.

The Spanish giants are on the hunt for a new fullback and it appears Hakimi fits the bill due to his technical qualities, speed and experience at the highest level of football.

Hakimi yet to inform PSG board

Amid all the uncertainty over his future, though, Hakimi himself has yet to inform the PSG board of his desire to leave Parc des Princes this summer.

This is according to Le Parisien, which cites sources close to Hakimi’s entourage who maintain that the player’s future is not a topic of discussion at the moment.

In fact, Hakimi’s inner circle maintains that all the buzz surrounding his future right now is just market speculation and there is nothing substantial transpiring over a potential move away from Parc des Princes.

A big blow for Real Madrid?

This could serve as a massive blow for Real Madrid, who had identified Hakimi as the ideal player to take over the reins in the right-back position.

The Spanish giants are indeed facing a precarious situation in the right-back position, with uncertainty over Lucas Vazquez’s future while Dani Carvajal is not getting any younger.

Hakimi, who had made his professional breakthrough at Real Madrid, could have been an ideal long-term replacement for someone like Carvajal.

The Moroccan international knows the club and the system quite well and would not take much time settling into La Liga.

But it appears Hakimi has not transformed any thoughts about leaving PSG in the coming summer. PSG, in fact, are involved in a discussion with the former Dortmund star over a potential contract extension.

Real Madrid, therefore, might have to look elsewhere in their bid to sign a new right-back this summer.

Real Madrid ace misses training for third consecutive day ahead of UCL final

As Real Madrid get closer and closer to their final game of the season against Borussia Dortmund in the UEFA Champions League, they are now sweating over the availability of one of their players.

It has already been confirmed that both David Alaba and Aurelien Tchouameni will miss the finals in London due to injuries.

Other than that, Carlo Ancelotti is likely to have the entirety of his squad available at his disposal, although there could be some concerns surrounding Andriy Lunin.

Lunin not in training for the third day in running

Indeed, Andriy Lunin has not participated in team training today, making it three days in a row heading into the Champions League final, reports Mundo Deportivo.

The Real Madrid goalkeeper is down with a fever that has kept him out of training for three days in a row now.

However, the report does add that despite not being in training for three days now, the Ukrainian international will fly to London and be on the squad list for the finals.

But with reports already suggesting that Thibaut Courtois will be starting in goal against Dortmund, Lunin’s continued absence from training only further strengthens the Belgian’s chances.

Kepa Arrizabalaga, who was absent from training on Tuesday due to personal reasons, is back working with the rest of the squad today. The Spaniard will have no involvement in Saturday’s final though.

Carlo Ancelotti is likely to go with the exact same starting lineup that he named for the Merengues’ final La Liga match against Real Betis.
