In a huge development, Josep Pedrerol of El Chiringuito TV is reporting that Real Madrid are ready to make a move for top target this summer with the player ready to leave his current club, PSG, who are also willing to sanction an exit.
Mbappe is entering the final year of his contract at PSG, having confirmed his decision to not extend his deal which expires in 2024. As such, Les Parisiens are keen on offloading him this summer instead of losing him for nothing twelve months later.
But, the 24-year-old superstar had publicly stated his desire to continue at the Parc des Princes for the remainder of his contract. It had led to a situation where things were not moving forward, with Real Madrid putting all their plans on hold until there was a development on the Mbappe front.
However, it seems that there has been a change of stance from the player’s side. Indeed, Pedrerol is reporting that Mbappe is ready to leave PSG this summer. This comes after reports earlier today suggested that the forward’s mother-cum-agent was pushing him to join Real Madrid.
PSG are also understood to be willing to negotiate with Real Madrid over Mbappe’s transfer despite the bad blood between the two clubs.
As such, Los Blancos believe the time is right for them to strike and there is confidence that Florentino Perez will not fail this time around in pursuit of Mbappe.
In fact, there is belief that the No. 9 shirt that is left vacant at Real Madrid following Karim Benzema’s exit is being saved for the 2018 FIFA World Cup winner.
As things stand, it appears that there could be significant movement with regard to Mbappe in the coming weeks. If he does indeed leave PSG, Real Madrid are the most likely destination where the 24-year-old ends up.
Real Madrid very happy with future star Endrick, eagerly awaiting his arrival in 2024 – Romano
Real Madrid’s attacking unit has been crippled by the loss of Karim Benzema earlier in the summer, which was followed by the loss of Vinicius Jr due to injury.
Although Vinicius has returned, there is much left to be desired from the Madrid frontline as we progress through to the season.
Real Madrid, though, are waiting on the arrival of Endrick. The young Brazilian is set to join the Real Madrid squad in the summer of 2024 when he turns 18.
Real Madrid impressed by Endrick
Endrick has already started his preparation for his pending move to Santiago Bernabeu, having performed exceptionally well in his native Brazil this year.
The youngster is constantly working on his game, in order to further improve himself as an attacker. It has left Real Madrid quite happy and eager for his arrival, reports Fabrizio Romano.
The journalist claims that Real Madrid have been keeping close tabs on everything Endrick has been doing, on and off the pitch, at Palmeiras.
And they have received very good reports on the 17-year-old, with the club impressed by how he is putting efforts to improve himself both performance-wise and in other facets.
Despite there being some question marks over his performances, the teenage forward is starting to showcase his potential, having scored five goals in five starts for Palmeiras.
Endrick also learning new languages
Endrick is not only just working on his performance. In fact, the Brazilian is also learning other languages in order to quickly settle into life in Spain.
The youngster can speak Portuguese, but he may have to master Spanish during his time at Santiago Bernabeu.
As mentioned earlier, Endrick can already speak Portuguese, which should go a long way in helping him team up with fellow Brazilians Vinicius Jr and Rodrygo.
Even Eder Militao can speak Portuguese, which should make it easier for Endrick to adapt to life in Spain, at least for the next year or so.
