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.

Following Toni Kroos’ departure and speculation over Nacho Fernandez’s imminent move to Saudi Arabia, the potential contract extension of Luka Modric should serve as a breather of fresh air for Real Madrid fans.

The Croatian international is set to continue for another season at Santiago Bernabeu. His experience and leadership will play a key role in an otherwise young Real Madrid midfield unit.

Numbers behind Modric’s new contract

As Modric gears up for a new contract at Real Madrid, a recent report from Mundo Deportivo has offered details of his new deal at the Bernabeu.

It appears the Croatian international is ready to settle for a pay cut in order to continue at Real Madrid.

During the 2023/24 campaign, Modric’s net salary was around €10 million. However, there will be a substantial 40% reduction in his salary in the new deal.

That means Modric is set to earn around €6 million net salary for the 2024/25 campaign. The terms of the new deal have been approved by the player’s entourage as well.

Set for greatness in 24/25

At the age of 38, Modric has already broken several records, including becoming the oldest player to represent Real Madrid.

But the former Tottenham midfielder could achieve much more in the coming season. If he retires by the end of next season, he will become the oldest player to retire at Real Madrid, at the age of 39. Not to mention, the midfielder will turn 40 in September 2025.

In addition, Modric currently holds six Champions League titles – equalling the tally of the legendary Paco Gento.

If the Croatian ends up winning the UCL title once again, he will create history by becoming the player with the most Champions League titles in the history of football.
