Paris Saint-Germain’s recent elimination from the UEFA Champions League has restarted the topic of Kylian Mbappe’s future. The French club’s repeated failures at the European level have reopened the possibility of him moving in the summer.

Unsurprisingly, Real Madrid are the first to be dragged into the topic given their long history chasing the Frenchman.

According to reports from MARCA, Los Blancos are bored and indifferent to Mbappe’s availability on the transfer market. The young phenom’s decision to reject the club after virtually sealing the deal in previous windows renders them mere spectators this time around.

The Madrid administration will continue to monitor Mbappe’s situation, however, will not go out of the way in trying to recruit him. Any attempt to join forces would have to come from the player’s end.

There is a realisation at Real Madrid that Paris-Saint Germain will not make the World Cup winner’s move to a direct rival easy. Given that the Merengues no longer see the need for a winger to be a priority, splashing money for Mbappe is seen as futile.

Mbappe has been one of the best players in Christophe Galtier’s side this season, scoring nineteen goals and providing three assists in just 23 league games so far. Most recently, he scored a 90th-minute winner to see his side past Stade Brestois.

The Merengues seem determined to splash their money on the midfield come June with Jude Bellingham being the top target. The wing, as it appears, is very far down on the list.

Vinicius Jr, Federico Valverde, Rodrygo Goes and Marco Asensio provide Ancelotti with sufficient depth in the department. Yet, Real Madrid has always been the club for the best players in the world, and Mbappe fits well into that bracket. Only time will tell what lies in store for the PSG superstar.

Following a solid end to his debut campaign at Real Madrid, Arda Guler is all set to play a key part for Turkey at the UEFA Euro 2024.

The 19-year-old wonderkid struggled with injuries during the first half of the last season at Real Madrid but eventually made the most of his chances towards the final phase of the campaign.

All in all, Guler finished the 2023/24 season with a tally of six goals from 12 matches, winning La Liga, Spanish Super Cup, and the UEFA Champions League.

Ahead of their Euro opener against Georgia next week, Turkey manager Vincenzo Montella gave an insight into how he plans to use the Real Madrid youngster – whether as a starter or from the bench, and his position.

“Arda generally played on the right wing in both Fenerbahçe and Real Madrid. If he played alone, he could be number ten, but for now, he seems to be closer to playing on the right wing,” said Montella (h/t Sporx).

On whether Guler is ready to start in the major European tournament, he added: “The most important thing is to be able to establish balance well. He played well in the last match, and we have the desire to start with him. However, I am still in the decision stage.”

So far, Guler has made seven appearances for the Turkish national team, in which he has netted one goal. And, he will be looking forward to adding to that tally at the Euros, whether he starts as a right-winger or a No. 10.
