The fact that Kylian Mbappe has decided to stay at Paris Saint-Germain for another year is supposed to pose a big problem for Real Madrid. 

However, if a report from Mundo Deportivo is to be believed, the Los Blancos are not really troubled by the recent turn of events, although they have been extremely attentive to what has happened in Paris of late.

Mbappe was largely expected to leave PSG this summer after the forward informed the Ligue 1 team that he does not wish to renew his ongoing deal, which runs until 2024.

The problems certainly did not end there for PSG as Mbappe also informed that he wishes to fulfil his ongoing deal and will only leave as a free agent.

The constant back and forth

Over the last few weeks, PSG have been continuously trying to persuade Mbappe to sign a deal but the player rejected all the approaches.

As a result, the forward was barred from the first team altogether but after a recent ‘positive and constructive discussion’, the 24-year-old has finally decided to stay put.

As for Real Madrid, although an interest was stated, the team from the Spanish capital never really approached the player or PSG per se with an official offer.

In fact, the management has quietly been watching the entire charade from afar.

MD writes that whatever happened between Mbappe and PSG in the last few days does not concern Real Madrid at all. In fact, those sitting in the higher offices are of the idea that the event is none of their concern.

From this, though, they have learned that ‘everything can change from one day to the next and they are ready in case they have to take action’.

Those in charge of the Madrid club have assured that Mbappe was anyway a target for the summer of 2024.

But at the same time, they have perceived this incident as a learning curve and they are actually quite surprised by Mbappe’s decision to renew with PSG, although the new deal will have a clause for him to leave next year.

In all fairness, this is what Madrid have ever wanted, the acquisition of Mbappe in the summer of 2024. The 24-year-old’s new contract will have that clause, but he will no longer be available for free next year.

At the same time, if he pens a long-term contract, Madrid will not negotiate with PSG at all and in that case, it will be the player who will have to make efforts to sign for Real.

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.”
