The rumours surrounding Kylian Mbappe and Real Madrid just refuse to go away. The PSG superstar was very close to joining the Merengues last year, only for him to make a late U-turn and pen a new contract with the Ligue 1 champions.

The entire saga left Real Madrid with a bitter taste, as they had believed that the signing of one of the best forwards in the game was in the bag. But the late change of directions meant that relations between the club and the player’s camp were ruptured.

Since then, there have been conflicting reports about Real Madrid’s stance on a future move for Mbappe. The 24-year-old, for his part, continues to maintain that he dreams of playing for the Merengues and recent dissension between him and the PSG camp has left the door ajar.

Now, according to The Athletic’s Mario Cortegana, Real Madrid will be ready at the table to make a move for Mbappe if he does decide to leave PSG in the near future.

The Merengues, as per the report, have maintained discrete contact with the Frenchman and his entourage despite what went down in the summer and there has been some movement after the FIFA World Cup 2022 in Qatar.

Mbappe, who won the Golden Boot at the World Cup, is said to have grown frustrated with PSG due to failed promises of strengthening the squad in the summer while he is also unhappy about playing as a centre-forward, as he wishes to play out on the left.

All this had paved way to reports of a possible exit as early as January, but that possibility is no longer on the table.

But, come summer, Mbappe will be entering the final year of his contract as he signed only a two-year contract with Les Parisiens with an option of an additional twelve months that can be triggered only by the player.

So, Mbappe could be an option in the market next summer, although PSG could demand outrageous sums in the range of €400 million for him. Or he could opt to leave for free when his contract expires in 2024.

And Real Madrid will be an option on the table should the scenario of Mbappe’s exit from PSG come to fruition in the coming years, although they are proceeding with caution on the matter, having been burnt last year.

Real Madrid’s injury woes were compounded on Thursday night when the reigning Spanish champions locked horns with Valencia.

Although the club were able to come away with a 2-0 victory, they had to cope with the injury to Karim Benzema as well as Eder Militao. The star striker was enjoying an excellent game, notably registering two assists and five key passes, before being subbed off around the mark.

The forward appeared to have a groin problem and demanded his substitution in the 60th minute when he was replaced by Rodrygo.

However, according to Arancha Rodriguez via RM4Arab, Benzema’s injury is not thought to be serious. He is expected to undergo tests today, which will ascertain the extent of his knock.

Real Madrid will be hoping that the Frenchman’s knock is not too serious as the player has already struggled with injuries during the earlier stages of the campaign. He has indeed missed seven league matches due to injury-related issues.

Benzema’s absence in such matches has had a direct impact on Real Madrid’s performances in the league this term. The Merengues, after all, all trailing league leaders Barcelona by a whopping five-point margin.

With the club bracing themselves for a tough February schedule, the availability of their star players such as Benzema could be integral, as Los Blancos look to perform well not only in the league but also in Copa Del Rey and the UEFA Champions League.

In the meantime, Real Madrid are preparing ahead for the Sunday encounter against Mallorca in the league. Whether or not Benzema, who has scored nine goals in 12 league matches this term, returns to full fitness before this tie remains to be seen.
