It is no secret that Real Madrid will once again attempt to sign Kylian Mbappe in the summer transfer window of 2024.

The French superstar, who will turn 25 in less than a week, has a contract with PSG that expires at the end of the ongoing season.

Even though the Parisian giants are making attempts to offer him an extension, there is no progress achieved yet, with Real Madrid very much in the fray.

Mbappe told to stay at PSG

However, amidst the uncertainty surrounding his future, Mbappe has been told to stay put at Paris Saint-Germain by former Arsenal and Barcelona superstar Thierry Henry.

The Arsenal legend, who is also the current France U-21 national team manager, urged his compatriot to stay in Paris and continue his story.

“If I were Kylian Mbappe, I wouldn’t leave. I’d want to finish what I’ve started,” said the former Barça man, as quoted by Mundo Deportivo.

“Why should he leave? He loves PSG and he’s from the city, you have to understand that,” Henry added.

The Arsenal icon went on to state that Mbappe finds himself in a similar situation to the one he was in back in 2022 when Real Madrid bet everything to sign him for free only for the forward to make a U-turn and renew with PSG, leaving the Merengues red-faced.

Now or never for Mbappe

As far as Real Madrid are concerned, they intend to make an offer to Mbappe in January, as soon as he is eligible to speak to other clubs over a pre-contract agreement.

From that point on, it would be up to the forward to make up his mind and make a quick decision for the Merengues do not intend to wait around for long.

If there is no positive response from the Frenchman, Real Madrid intend to go after Manchester City’s Erling Haaland as their Plan B.

As for Mbappe, if he turns down the chance once again, the Spanish capital club would be done for good with him. So, it is pretty much a ‘now or never’ scenario for the Frenchman.

Real Madrid will be on their way to England this Thursday as they gear up to take on Borussia Dortmund in the UEFA Champions League final on Saturday.

The players and the staff will be on a flight to London tomorrow to prepare for the clash at Wembley.

However, according to a report from journalist Arancha Rodriguez, Real Madrid goalkeeper Andriy Lunin might not travel with the rest of the team tomorrow.

The 25-year-old Ukrainian goalkeeper has not trained for three days in a row after coming down with the flu.

Lunin has overcome the flu, but he still has the virus and there is still a chance he could be contagious.

As such, Real Madrid, aware of the importance of Saturday’s match against Borussia Dortmund, are considering leaving the Ukrainian behind to avoid any possible contagion ahead of the Champions League final.

The goalkeeper will likely not travel with the rest of the expedition to London on Thursday and will fly alone on Saturday to avoid the risk of infection.

On Thursday, Lunin will undergo another check-up and, depending on the viral load, he could even travel on Friday. But it seems impossible for him to travel with his teammates.

It has already been suggested that Lunin would be making way for Thibaut Courtois in the starting lineup against Borussia Dortmund on Saturday. The likelihood of that has increased following the events of this week.
