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 usurped the top spot in the La Liga standings from arch-rivals FC Barcelona as they defeated Girona 3-0 away at Estadi Montilivi.

It was a fine performance from Carlo Ancelotti’s men against Michel’s side, with the returning Jude Bellingham leading the way for his team.

After being benched against Las Palmas in midweek, the England international returned to the starting XI today and turned in yet another Man of the Match display for Real Madrid.

It all started with Joselu opening the scoring just 15 minutes into the game, with Bellingham assisting the goal with a special, outside-of-the-boot pass from the left side, bringing back memories of Luka Modric doing something similar a few years ago.

Talking about that special pass, Bellingham said: “I’ve been watching Luka every day for months. I just want to be creative. It took the pressure off us at the start.”

On the match and the result, the 20-year-old stated that it was a good day across the board for Real Madrid, as he said: “It was an important win. They were doing very well. We made a statement of intent to La Liga. Three goals, a clean sheet….”

It has been a truly remarkable start to life at Real Madrid for Bellingham and expressing how he feels to play for the Merengues, he exclaimed:

“I feel very good. I have freedom of movement and I’m enjoying football. Whenever I put on this shirt I always try to do my best.”

Apart from assisting Joselu’s opener, Bellingham also got his name on the scoresheet in the second period. Talking about his goal, the wonderkid said:

“It wasn’t a very good finish. I could have scored some more, but the important thing is the victory.”

The strike meant that Bellingham now has seven goals and two assists across all competitions for Real Madrid. Reflecting on his brilliant start, he said:

“It’s a good start, not bad. I would like to continue on this path and I won’t always score or assist, but I will always give my best.”

Bellingham’s celebration has been a huge hit, with kids in school, players from other clubs, and many others mimicking it. When asked how his special celebration originated, he replied:

“I don’t know where I first celebrated. I think it was with Birmingham. It’s an inspiration to see kids doing it in schools. It’s a wonderful thing.”
