The Kylian Mbappe transfer saga might be close to nearing an end, with a move to Real Madrid from PSG now appearing very likely.

The 24-year-old has been banished from the first-team squad by the Ligue 1 champions due to his refusal to renew his contract or leave the club this summer.

Clubs like Al Hilal, Liverpool, and Chelsea are said to have shown an interest in the forward, but he remains fixed on joining Real Madrid only.

There had been no tangible action from the Spanish giants as they wanted either PSG or Mbappe himself to make the first move, but things appear to be moving in the background.

Indeed, reports suggest that Real Madrid wish to complete the signing of Mbappe by the second week of August and are confident of getting the job done.

Dembele’s move to PSG could facilitate Mbappe transfer

And now, sources suggest that PSG could be ready to facilitate Mbappe’s transfer to Real Madrid soon as they close in on the signing of Ousmane Dembele from Barcelona.

Indeed, reports last night indicated that the French champions had reached a verbal agreement on a five-year deal with the winger, and the only thing that now remains is paying his €50 million release clause before the end of the day today.

With the deal likely to go ahead, PSG will have secured a replacement for Mbappe, following which they could let him sign for Real Madrid, although the specifics of the deal could take some time.

As mentioned earlier, Real Madrid wish to finalise the transfer by the second week of August. PSG, too, wish to resolve his future in order to avoid paying a loyalty bonus and as such, Dembele’s move to Paris could speed things up.

Aurelien Tchouameni has had an exciting start to his career at Real Madrid. Since joining the club for almost €80 million last summer, the young Frenchman has now become a pivotal figure in Real Madrid’s midfield unit.

However, prior to his move to Santiago Bernabeu, the midfielder was closely linked with a move to Paris Saint-Germain.

In a recent interview, Tchouameni opened up on his links to PSG but revealed his decision to join Real Madrid.

Talking about speculations linking him to PSG, Tchouameni said (h/t Madrid Zone), “PSG? Frankly, I thought about it. It’s a very big European club, we want the French clubs to succeed.”

“But honestly, when Real Madrid calls you, it’s very complicated to say no,” Tchouameni added.

The midfielder was linked with a move to PSG during his time at AS Monaco. Les Parisiens wanted to sign the youngster as part of their plans to reinforce the midfield unit.

Tchouameni, though, ended up opting for a move to Real Madrid, which turned out to be a prudent decision from the midfielder’s end.

Tchouameni’s career at Real Madrid

Aurelien Tchouameni made a total of 50 competitive appearances during his maiden season at Real Madrid.

Although the Frenchman was not entirely a first-team regular in Carlo Ancelotti’s setup, his stature in the team is expected to grow in the coming years.

Especially as Toni Kroos and Luka Modric move on at the end of the season, there is scope for Tchouameni to become a first-team regular in the Real Madrid midfield in the years to come.

The former AS Monaco starlet has already played a crucial role in the starting eleven so far this season and it is only going to continue as the season progresses.
