The situation between Kylian Mbappe and Paris Saint-Germain has never been more volatile. The French club is doing everything in its capacity to ensure that the youngster either renews his deal or leaves this summer, but Mbappe sits firm on his desire to stay.

The World Cup winner plans to join Real Madrid on a free transfer in 2024, thus securing a loyalty bonus from PSG and a signing-on bonus from his new club. The Ligue 1 side disagree and do not see a departure for free to be a feasible option.

According to reports earlier today, PSG are now willing to listen to offers from any party interested. While there is solid interest from Real Madrid and the Premier League, Saudi Arabia has emerged as the latest entrant.

French outlet L’Equipe report that the offer from Saudi Arabia for Mbappe is much higher than the whopping €222 million PSG paid for Neymar Jr. It is thus a world record bid and appeals to the offices at Parc des Princes.

Fabrice Hawkins adds that Al-Hilal offer Mbappe a salary of €400 million over two years as part of the proposal. Further, they would let him sign for Real Madrid in 2024 if he wishes so.

The 24-year-old has been left out of PSG’s preseason squad travelling to Japan and is currently training with the other club outcasts in Paris. The club have made it clear that he will not play for them again until he reveals his final decision.

Mbappe thus has a critical decision to take. He is strictly opposed to signing a renewal, but the option of moving to Saudi Arabia for one season before signing for his dream club is unlikely to appeal to him either.

Real Madrid will continue monitoring the situation from afar and will only make their move once there is more clarity.

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.”
