Tomas Gonzalez-Martin has reported via El Debate that Real Madrid will not make a move for Paris Saint-Germain forward Kylian Mbappe this summer.

The reason being that the team from the Spanish capital city is waiting for PSG to ‘beg’ as they look to avenge the episode of 2021.

The event dates back to August 2021 when Real Madrid decided to approach PSG with an offer worth €170 million plus €10 million in add-ons for the forward. The Ligue 1 side, however, decided not to even respond to the offer and Madrid were left wanting.

Building on the incident, the journalist writes that club president Florentino Perez has not forgotten anything about the incident and that the main man is not ready to forgive PSG either.

Perez staying firm

Perez has made it absolutely clear that Real Madrid will not sign a player on the last day of the market.

As far as Mbappe is concerned, the clear plan was to negotiate sooner or never. So if Madrid were to bid for Mbappe, they would have done it already.

All this has put PSG in a lot of trouble. To begin with, they are of the idea that Mbappe already has an agreement with Real Madrid for the summer of 2024.

So as the player continues to stay with the team, they are forced to delay their summer plans as well.

PSG considering a complaint against Madrid

Recent development in this entire spectacle indicates that PSG are considering making a formal complaint against Madrid to FIFA for approaching the player without the permission of the club.

PSG are on high alert at the moment and Madrid are willing to watch the entire story as mere spectators.

They are aware of the fact that Mbappe has refused to even meet Saudi side Al Hilal despite the team offering €300 million for his services, which PSG are more than eager to accept.

The idea is that the situation comes down to the extent that PSG either have to beg Real Madrid for the transfer or Mbappe leaves them for free in 2024.

As for Madrid, they are happy to wait and sign him for free next year.

Real Madrid missed out on the signing of Leny Yoro after deciding not to match Manchester United’s offer for the 18-year-old defender.

With the French prodigy now on his way to the Premier League, Los Blancos are assessing their options before deciding whether to sign a new centre-back or not.

As things stand, the reigning champions of Spain and Europe seem to be leaning towards relying on their existing options rather than going into the market.

Jesus Vallejo unlikely to leave

As such, MARCA reports that the likelihood of Jesus Vallejo leaving the club have now significantly reduced.

Indeed, the 27-year-old out-of-favour defender now appears more and more likely to continue at Real Madrid beyond this summer.

Vallejo returned to the Santiago Bernabeu after finishing his loan stint at Granada during which he hardly played due to injury and fitness woes.

As such, reports suggested that Carlo Ancelotti & co. were not planning on counting on him next season, even though he was handed a new shirt number recently.

But with the Leny Yoro operation collapsing and Real Madrid not keen on recruiting anyone from the market at this point, the Spanish ace is now unlikely to leave the club.

With David Alaba still sidelined, Antonio Rudiger and Eder Militao will start the new season as the first-choice centre-back pairing and Vallejo will serve as the backup while Aurelien Tchouameni will also be an option.

Vallejo, for his part, wanted to stay put and see out his contract which expires in 2025. And, as things stand, it appears that the player will get his wish.
