As we enter the new year, the Kylian Mbappe to Real Madrid talks are once again heating up, with the French superstar set to become a free agent at the end of the ongoing campaign.

While PSG remain optimistic about tying him down to a new contract, Real Madrid are also planning on presenting him with a new contract very early in January.

Considering that he will be free to negotiate with the club of his desire starting from tomorrow, Los Blancos do not wish to waste any time and send a lucrative contract offer worth €26 million per year to him right away.

However, at the same time, Real Madrid are expecting a swift response from the French international, ideally before January 15, if reports are to be believed.

Real Madrid will quickly move for Haaland if Mbappe doesn’t respond

As such, AS is now reporting that if Mbappe does not agree to join Real Madrid within the January 15 deadline set by the club, they will swiftly move on to their Plan B, which happens to be Manchester City superstar Erling Haaland.

It is well-established by this point that Los Blancos are huge admirers of the Norwegian hitman and hold a strong interest in acquiring his services.

However, as things stand, Mbappe continues to be their main target. But if the Frenchman does not respond positively to their contract offer, within the stipulated deadline, Real Madrid will quickly turn their focus to Haaland.

After all, the Merengues will need a lot of time to negotiate a deal for the 23-year-old striker, considering he is an indispensable commodity for Manchester City.

The rumoured presence of a release clause in his contract might help matters, but even then, the operation will not be straightforward, with the Cityzens already trying to tie Haaland down to a new deal.

So, the next couple of weeks might be pivotal for both Mbappe and Real Madrid and whether the two parties end up uniting or not.

Real Madrid’s best lineup next season with Kroos retiring, Mbappe and Endrick joining

It is set up to be a transformative summer for Real Madrid. After the UEFA Champions League final has concluded and the grand showdown finally has a victor, the Merengues are expected to undergo a squad revamp.

Indeed, the Santiago Bernabeu is preparing to welcome several high-profile signings, while also bidding farewell to some beloved Madrid legends.

Considering the potential arrivals of Kylian Mbappe and Endrick, as well as Toni Kroos’ recent retirement, here is how Real Madrid could shape up next season:


Having made a long-awaited return from injury, Thibaut Courtois is anticipated to guard Real Madrid’s goal next season once more.

The Belgian goalie has already started featuring in the starting XI and is expected to play against Borussia Dortmund in the Champions League final, too.

As such, his place for next season is hardly in doubt. However, unlike previous seasons, he will face much fiercer competition from Andriy Lunin, who has enjoyed a stellar campaign.


Fortifications in the defensive line remain high on Real Madrid’s priority list in the upcoming summer transfer window. However, even with the given options the Royal Whites boast assurance and grit in their back-line.

The likely occupants on the flanks would be Dani Carvajal and Ferland Mendy, who have both produced great exhibitions throughout the campaign.

Carvajal is known to punish defensive lines and on the defensive end, his anticipation of forwards has been equally appreciable.

Meanwhile, Mendy’s resurgence this season has earned him immense faith from the coaching staff, as his defensive aptitude continues to set him apart.

In the centre-back positions, Real Madrid are expected to rely on the dependable figures of Antonio Rudiger and Eder Militao.

Real Madrid consider Rudiger to be indispensable owing to his front-footed style and the important role he has had to play amidst the injury crisis. Similarly, Militao is valued by the team as he proceeds to regain match fitness after recovering from a long-term injury.

Thankfully for Real Madrid, their succession stage had begun a while ago and they have ample options to trust in the center of the park.

With Aurelien Tchouameni protecting the base of midfield, Real Madrid will possess security and deep progression.

Ahead, occupying the interior midfield positions, Fede Valverde and Eduardo Camavinga are well-suited to provide a combination of energy off the ball and threat in possession.

And to put the cherry on top, Jude Bellingham’s place as the number 10 behind the two strikers would certify his status as a pivotal playmaker and scorer in the team’s setup.

However, he is adept at making third-man runs and connecting the midfield with the offence and could play deeper to not only make up for Kroos’ absence but also facilitate more options up front.


Real Madrid’s offensive department is where the largest reform is expected to take place.

Kylian Mbappe’s goalscoring instincts need little introduction by now and he is thus anticipated to be fielded as the striker.

Vinicius Jr. is expected to take up the position as a secondary striker drifting from the left, something he has become quite accustomed to this season.

It is worth noting that Endrick could also play a part by either replacing Vinicius off the bench and playing off Mbappe.

It remains to be seen how many men forward Ancelotti will commit to but the presence of Mbappe and Vinicius seems set in stone, given their huge profiles and status in world football. How the manager uses Rodrygo Goes will be interesting to see as well.

All in all, considering Ancelotti’s proficiency in profiling players, Madrid fans can expect to see these stars play in favourable environments.
