The saga of Kylian Mbappe’s future took an ugly turn last night when PSG announced their pre-season squad travelling to Japan.

The Ligue 1 champions left their star winger out of the squad for his failure to respond to the club’s deadline and have made it clear that he will not play for them again until he does so.

Reports that followed brought shocking revelations as they claimed that PSG knew of an agreement between Mbappe and Real Madrid over a free transfer next summer.

Arancha Rodriguez clears the uncertainty over the Merengues‘ stance. According to the Spanish journalist, Los Blancos have no such prior agreement with Mbappe for him to join the club in 2024.

Rodriguez further clarifies that his report does not imply that the World Cup winner will not join Real Madrid but just states that there is no agreement between the parties to date.

Nasser Al-Khelaifi gave Mbappe an open deadline of July 19th to make his final decision and convey it to the club, for they wished to plan their transfer window based on his decision. The youngster, however, has maintained complete silence and refuses to move from his stance of seeing out his contract which expires in 2024.

But with PSG now taking drastic measures, the pressure is now on the French winger. His current club give him two options – to renew and stay or to leave this summer, and he cannot feature for them again until he makes his choice.

If reports are to be believed, Mbappe wishes to prioritise a move next summer for economic reasons. Staying another season in France would earn him the loyalty bonus he is promised, while a move to Real Madrid as a free agent in 2024 would also fetch him a hefty signing-on bonus. A decision is imminent.

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.”
