Surprising reports that emerged last week claimed cracks in Real Madrid’s financial stability. According to the rumours, Los Blancos refused to comment on certain expenditures of the past season, creating doubts about their Financial Fair Play situation.

UEFA’s eventual list had no mention of Real Madrid and while clubs like Barcelona and AC Milan were fined for the same, the Merengues were left without any scar. After all, the Spanish giants have always been cautious with the economic aspect and balance arrivals with necessary departures.

According to reports from Jose Felix Diaz, Real Madrid are currently resisting any transfer operation that would jeopardise their financial stability. The club will not bend for any target including Kylian Mbappe if it comes at the cost of economic balance.

The institution of Real Madrid reigns supreme, and there is no doubt about it in the club offices. The journalist adds that nothing is as important as the survival of the club.

The Merengues currently oversee a massive operation in the form of the renewal of Santiago Bernabeu. The stadium restoration is an economically intensive process that bears heavily on the club’s accounts. Needless to say, Real Madrid need to tread with caution.

Los Blancos have already spent over €100 million to acquire the services of Jude Bellingham from Borussia Dortmund. Moreover, the €20 million spent on signing Arda Guler is also no small amount.

It is thus not surprising that the management are scrutinizing the finances over Kylian Mbappe’s possible arrival. It has been reported that the overall cost of operation for the Frenchman may cost over €400 million, including fees, salary, bonuses and commissions.

The possibility of postponing the mega-signing to next summer hence becomes a promising prospect. Mbappe will be out of contract next summer, and his signing would come at a far more subsidised charge. The coming weeks will be critical in deciding his future and Real Madrid’s stance on the same.

Real Madrid missed out on the signing of Leny Yoro after deciding not to match Manchester United’s offer for the 18-year-old defender.

With the French prodigy now on his way to the Premier League, Los Blancos are assessing their options before deciding whether to sign a new centre-back or not.

As things stand, the reigning champions of Spain and Europe seem to be leaning towards relying on their existing options rather than going into the market.

Jesus Vallejo unlikely to leave

As such, MARCA reports that the likelihood of Jesus Vallejo leaving the club have now significantly reduced.

Indeed, the 27-year-old out-of-favour defender now appears more and more likely to continue at Real Madrid beyond this summer.

Vallejo returned to the Santiago Bernabeu after finishing his loan stint at Granada during which he hardly played due to injury and fitness woes.

As such, reports suggested that Carlo Ancelotti & co. were not planning on counting on him next season, even though he was handed a new shirt number recently.

But with the Leny Yoro operation collapsing and Real Madrid not keen on recruiting anyone from the market at this point, the Spanish ace is now unlikely to leave the club.

With David Alaba still sidelined, Antonio Rudiger and Eder Militao will start the new season as the first-choice centre-back pairing and Vallejo will serve as the backup while Aurelien Tchouameni will also be an option.

Vallejo, for his part, wanted to stay put and see out his contract which expires in 2025. And, as things stand, it appears that the player will get his wish.
